November Winners!

Waves at Woody Head
It is time to announce the winners for November's giveaway and tah dah......
1st draw : Kathy - Sew happy house
2nd draw: Cherise
3rd draw: Jeanette - Jeanette's place.
If you girls could let me have your snail mail address and which one of my patterns you would like to chose. I shall get it posted off to you. Congratulations! Thank you to everyone who joined in and left me such lovely comments.
I have been sweating it out under my quilting hoop to get my little commission finished and am making good progress. It has been a very good excuse to watch the very handsome Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice and I revisited the wonderful "Man from Snowy River". I so love that movie....the scenery is spectacular.
I have also read Di Morrisy's great new book "Opal Desert" which I loved also.....I only discovered how much I loved her books about 2 years ago. For some reason I didn't think they were for me until a friend was insistent I read "The Valley" which was about where she grew up. I enjoyed it so much I have been playing catchup ever since. I am now reading "The Islands" which I bought in Ulmarra.
Well that's it from me today. I hope yours is wonderful.
Happy Stitching,
Blessings Michelle xx
