It's Time To Reveal?????

Finally I can reveal to you what my "Secret Sewing Long Term Project" is......you see over the last 2 years I have been designing, drawing, stitching, quilting and consolidating lots of projects for this!
My very own 42 page Christmas Book! So I am so thrilled to finally be able to share with you
"A HOLLY COTTAGE CHRISTMAS" My inspiration for the little cottage came from our travels though South Australia and Victoria. I was smitten when we chanced upon them in little country towns. I also wanted a little Aussie flavour too.
 The book contains 9 projects including a quilt and a table topper. The designs are all full size so no enlarging on copiers etc. 2 of the smaller projects have an alternate design and there are 6 gift tags...plenty to keep you stitching your heart out.
Plus a bonus tree ornament and 3 quilt label designs. All the applique blocks in the quilt would be lovely used individually too.....of course there had to be birdies!
And who doesn't love pudding?
My partner in crime in this venture has been my lovely brother Ross.... he took my chaotic work and turned it into something that I am really proud of. Thanks so much little brother for telling me over and over that it will all be fine....
I really hope you love it as much as I do. If you are interested in a copy you can email me to order it.
The cost will be $32.00 AUD plus $3.50 postage here in Australia. I am always happy to quote for overseas postage. Wholesale enquiries are also very welcome.
So there you have it folks....secrets revealed. Having my very own book has been the little shiny star at the top of my wish tree for myself for a very long time. So it just goes to show you that you can always chase a dream and catch it.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

    I'm currently working (very slowly) though your Christmas ABC designs - 2 down, 24 to go. But I'm not worried, it will be a long term project of course.
