It's in the Bag

G'day all. I have been trying to do this post for ever this morning but there were gremlins somewhere in the system. I trust you all had a great weekend. Mine was very nice and relaxing although I could do with this wind buzzing off so I could have my sinsuses back in one piece.
I did a little bit of everyone else "Secret stuff" but I did make my Mum a simple tote bag to store her 'reading' quilt in during the summer months.
I also got some very nice post today. Some more little pieces of the "Sentiments" range to add to my stash I have a few ideas forming around this yummy fabric and actually did do a little drawing for it.
I was also very chuffed to see my "Christmas with the Gingies" quilt on the cover of this month's Country Threads Magazine.
There are few Queenslanders in this issue with very sweet designs...Jenny from Elephantz and I adore Cath Walkers gorgeous reindeer dollies....ooh so cute!
Well that is it from me except to say thank you to all you lovely people who emailed and ordered my new patterns. Bless your little threaded needles :) If you haven't seen them check out my sidebar.

I'm off to perform some more Domestic Goddess duties.....tell me why we need clean clothes again????
Blessings Michelle xx
