meanwhile in cyberspace..

A little while back I started my own Flickr Group as a place for people to share what they make with my tutorials. I was worried that nobody would join, but much to my delight you have been posting some wonderful things there!
It is the best feeling to see your lovely creations made from one of my tutes :-) These are just a few of them, click on the photo's to see the originals.

In other news I have been busy wrapping my head around PDF pattern design. It is still slow going but there's progress - oh yes! There will be a pattern for scrappy leaf key fobs, which I hope to have available in the shop soon!

I also have a few paper piecing designs in the making. One of those will be available for free on my blog as part of Sew Out Loud {quilters' wordplay} QAL. This quilt along is all about sewing and text and fabric. It will kick off February the 1st with a give away, sponsors guest judges.. the works! I do believe it is going to be an amazing QAL, so keep your eyes peeled ladies and join our group !
