In Print

Do you remember the 'Festive Charm Table Runner' I made in October last year? Well, I emailed a photo off to Australian Country Threads magazine and guess what? I won the Mailbox Section for Vol 9 No 4 - on sale 21st January 2009. My Mum subscribes to the Mag, so she got her copy on Friday - here it is.

Look at the fabulous goodies I won

I also got an email from Beck Wise, the Editor of Homespun magazine, to say that they would like to put the 'Nesting Nellie And Her Girls' Babushka/Matryoshka dolls (that I made in November) in the April Mailbag section - what a thrill!

I am coming to Melbourne (YAY!) at the end of March/beginning of April for a few days, to catch up with my precious 'Sewing Sisters' Kylie and Katherine. Would anyone else like to catch up with Kylie & I? You can email us through the 'Contact us' button on the sidebar.

Rachel has her friend Hayley (from Pingelly) staying with us for a few days. We have a few fun things planned, including the movies (High School Musical 3), Whiteman Park & a haircut - for Hayley! I have some crafting planned for this week too.

With Love
