New Patterns and 8 in a Row!!!

Well you know I am going to say it....Our Mighty Queensland Maroons State of Origin Team has bought home the series for the ****8th time in a row****....Congratulations to our boys xxxxxxxx
And what can I say but have to be really courageous to be a Queenslander! Our team showed great courage to hang on with only a 2 point lead.
What a nail biting game. I am sure I wore some of the polish off my floors pacing up and down.
Sorry to you "Non- Origin Fans" not really. WE WON!!!!!! YAY!!!!!
Ok now that I have bought you up to speed on those exciting developments I have a 2 new patterns to release just in time for Christmas in July.
The first is "Feed the Birds"  Wall Hanging may recognise him from my sneaky peeks..
The cost is $14.50AUS plus postage if you are outside Australia.
The 2nd pattern has a little story and I know how you love those.
I was having coffee earlier in the year with my lovely friend Noela. A lot of you will know Noela from her blog "Quilty Bits from the Blue Room. Anyway Noela suggested to me that she would love to see me create a Christmas Alphabet and so the seed was planted and home I went and got out pencil and paper and we now have...
"Alphabet Noel". All 26 letters are represented with various Christmas themes. It is in the same format as my Stitcher's Alphabet. There are no projects included just the stitchery designs waiting for you to create with them.. and the cost is $14.00 AUS plus postage for those overseas. I have named the pattern after Noela (well as close as I could get anyway) So a huge thank you to Noela for planting that little Christmas seed of inspiration. I have 2 other new designs to release that are non Christmas but I am saving them as I am going to have a little giveaway in a few stay tuned. So you see I have been a busy little bee of late and loved every moment of it but I am looking forward to my holiday. LOL.
If you wish to purchase either of these two patterns just email me for details.
That is it from me for today. I am off to do a few little chores and then some more quilting. I did quite a lot last night in between pacing to try and alleviate the "Finals" stress.
Blessings Michelle xx
