And the Winners are ......

The G'nT Sisters had a get-together on the weekend so I asked the girls to pick the winners. Sofie (good with numbers) came up with a formula where they each chose a number, which were added together and then divided by 3 - we did this twice. The results are:

The Circle Game goes to Mayleen from Q is for Quilt blog - "The Circle Game has long been on my wish list so that would be my choice if I won. Congratulations on your 100th follower and your new job!"

The winner of Gypsy Wife is Michele - 
"Congrats on exhibiting your gorgeous quilt. I am planning to start my "Words to Live By" quilt this coming winter (though I'd much rather it be summer coming up here than winter...).
I would love to win Gypsy Wife. Thanks for the chance."

Lucky winners, please email me your snail mail address so that I can post out your patterns.

Catch up celebration

It's been a while since my last post so here's a bit of a catch up and a few reasons to celebrate. I was thrilled to have my Antique Wedding Sampler on display at this year's Victorian Quilter's showcase at the Melbourne Quilt and Craft Fair.

If you haven't already you can read about this on our G'nT Sisters blog here.
I'm not going to post photos of other quilts [ :( ]as I forgot to check on whether this was ok. I was pretty restrained retail wise but did buy some lovely threads - some variegated Valdani perle cotton for Vases of Flowers...

... and some beautiful variegated wool to embroider stems on Words to Live By.

I've managed to finish a few more of these blocks.

 Winter is coming to a close and I don't know how much further I'll get with this wool quilt as I am working on a couple of other things but more about those another day.

I've recently attained my 100th blog follower - thanks Josie from Dilly Dimple If you haven't read her blog take a visit, her sense of humour will give you a giggle. 

Before I head off to bed as I have to get up early (yes, I have a new job!) I am offering a give-away to celebrate this month's happenings. Leave a comment (or send me an email) on any reason you have had cause to celebrate recently. Let me know which Jen Kingwell pattern (new & unused) you would like to win, either Gypsy Wife...

...OR the Circle Game.

This give-way will be drawn next Sunday, 31st August and I will post overseas.  
Good luck!
This give away is now closed - thanks.
