Cute Show & Tell

I have some wonderful ladies across the Tasman who are very supportive of my work. Especially the very lovely Kerryn from The Country Yard ....a gorgeous patchwork shop in the Maungatapere area of New Zealand.
Don't you just want to jump in your car (or swim the Tasman) and go for a Kiwis are so very lucky *sigh* to be able to visit. For the rest of us poor folks we can click on the name up above and go for a virtual visit.
Kerryn has put together some lovely kits with fabric, threads and my little "Gingerbread Kisses" booklet.
Kerryn has stitched up the sweetest sample and had it quilted by the very talented Leeanne from
Quiltmekiwi If ever you want to see some quilting eye candy pay Leeanne a visit...oohh eeeh!
I digress.....a couple of my little gingies so beautifully stitched and quilted.
I love this thread..
All finished...
I just love seeing how clever folks use my designs. Thanks Leeanne for sharing your piccies and thanks Kerryn for making my little Gingies look so good.

A bit of early Christmas decorating is going on around here.....
I love this quilt and I really wanted to see it displayed this Christmas.
I must away....enjoy your day.

Namaste and Blessings,
