A Big Hello....


....and welcome if you have come here from the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!


I hope that you will take the time to look around to see what I get up to over here, and also leave me a comment so that you can be in with a chance of winning one of my kits.
.

Each kit contains everything you need to create a Art Quilt mini using my unique hand painted fabrics.
Stitch yourself or give as a gift to a crafty friend!
More details of what each kit contains can be found in either my Etsy or Folksy shops.
(Giveaway details at end of post!)

In other news, a copy of Laurie Wisbrun's latest book arrived this morning, and she has again included a photo of some of my hand painted fabric.


This is the U.K. version which has a different cover to the U.S. version


It is a thrill to see my name in print.

Giveaway details.
Leave a comment telling me which of my kits is your favourite, and if you are lucky to be chosen I will send that kit to you, wherever in the world you might be.
Giveaway is open until December 7th 5 p.m. PST, which by my calculations is about 1 a.m. in the morning here in the U.K. so I will chose and announce the winner on December 8th.
Good Luck everyone and Big Thank You to Sew Mama Sew and all who have entered.
