Coming soon to a store near YOU!

 We had a good weekend at the Australian Quilt Market.
The new-look patterns were received well.  Ordered for stores around Australia, New Zealand and online.
 This was my little patch... very stark and white in the world of quiltiness.
I didn't take many photos, but I managed this one of Saffron Craig and  Two Monkeys Fabrics. Fabulous stuff.
 And I captured a bit of this Melody Ross  fabric at Lloyd Curzon Textiles.  I thinks I'm in love.

Today I took the day off.  I was so exhausted I couldn't talk or think, so there seemed no point in going to work.  I spent most of the day mooching about at a snail's pace, lying on the couch and watching dvd's.  In the afternoon, I played with my knitting machine.

I'll keep you posted on where to buy my patterns, hardware and interfacing as we send out the wholesale orders.  Hopefully by then, I'll have experienced the return of my brain and the ability to construct sentences.

Right now, it's back to the couch....

Oh hooray, I've been waiting for this blog post! So glad to hear that all went well. Not at all surprised that you are completely exhausted - you've worked extremely hard all year! Kick back a little and take a break when you can. I think that your white stand looks superb! The new artwork is excellent.
