..just a few minutes to say hello!

Hi my lovely ladies!

How I have missed you all, I am still buried under my pile of fabric, fur and embroidery!
I hope to have it all done by Monday - and the last of the sox will be on their way!

I just had to share this with you,
I was reading the news tonight on our local station's online site and was thrilled, wowed and completely inspired to read that a fellow Aussie quilter Robyn 'Bobby' Melia,
sold a quilt she made out her grandmothers vintage scraps for $70,000!!!!
You can read all about the sale here!

and you can find more about the quilt on her blog which is here:

Here is a little sneaky peaky of it - I don't know Bobby but I hope she doesn't mind me posting this - please go to her blog to read the story and see more photos!!


(this photo is borrowed from Bobby's blog)

I also wanted to show you the Charlie Bear I bought for The Glamour Girl for Christmas -
how cute is he !!!


And the lovely Amy from Giggleberrys sent me a photo of their sox all hanging up, this lovely set she chose has inspired many people to buy the same one - they are hanging in homes in Germany, Switzerland, and Luxembourg, as well as many homes in the USA!!

Now it's back to work for me!!!!
gotta stuff and line all these!

But before I go I had to show you The Songstress's new baby girl...
This is Bella - naaawwww!!!

and just a couple of things that I have been working on...
A tree skirt I made to go with the "Giggleberrys" set, (that's what I call it!) On it's way to Switzerland

And a quick pic of a set that are now hanging in a home in Shafeena in Abu Dhabi !!
Check out her blog! She has the cutest header I have ever seen!
She loves them!!

Okay, back to the grind for me!!

Wow... just wow! So many cool things in this post! I hope you are able to wrap up the Jingle Sox and have a well deserved rest!

The bear is ADORABLE! Possibly the best bear I have ever seen! She looks just like the puppy! Or maybe the puppy looks like a super cute bear.

And you truly are a world-class crafter. :)
