New projects

I have been busy with needle and thread recently – as well as ‘getting jiggy with it’ on my sewing machine!

Would you like to see a couple of peeks of recently completed projects?

CT sneak peeks 1

I love those country-style heart buttons from Dress it Up! I use them all the time.

I also love this cloud fabric – you may recognise it from the free angel stitchery design situated on my side bar. I have a series of new stitchery designs using it… to be made up into something very sweet :-)

I’m making great progress on the cot quilt too! The appliqué is now complete and I plan to start quilting it tomorrow! Wish me luck! LOL

I have two other projects on the go as well, that I’ll share soon. I don’t usually have so many things all on the go at the same time, but I was invited by the lovely editor of Creating Country Threads to do a profile piece in the magazine early next year. I’ve been industriously designing and making new items to send in to the magazine so they can be shared with readers. Exciting isn’t it?!! :-)

I am also busily preparing for two very special birthdays this week. My gorgeous son turns 13 tomorrow; I can still hardly believe how much he’s grown in both inches and maturity over the past year – but to have a TEENAGER? Wow! :-) Then, three days later follows my daughter’s birthday and she will turn Five! Another milestone. Bless ‘em!

Before I go, have you heard that Judith is having a sale in her web-shop? Head on over HERE to check it out! Also, the Material Chicks are having a sale on patterns too – their link is in my side bar! :-)

Rightie-ho, I had better head off and plan for the birthday celebrations tomorrow!! :-)

Until next time – Party On!!! Hugs! Vikki xx

WOOWEE Vikki, you have been busy, busy busy. I am LOVING the look of the bird applique. Can't wait to see that finished. Glad you are getting things published. It's so nice to be recognized for your work!! Having a teenager in the house brings back fond memories. Enjoy these next few trying years. You'll become "smart after all" in about 6-7 years, lol!

I love your blogg. I was thinking about publishing one myself, but because of all the sites I visit, I am so content not to have my own.

Bless you for all you do to encourage all the quilters in cyber space!
