Give away news


Following the GYB party  the winner of my give away is Lyn who blogs at linicat@large

Congratulations to    Lyn       and thanks to everyone who stopped by and left comments as it has  been a great opportunity to find even more great blogs to follow.

I am feeling a bit low as I have gone down with a heavy cold and don't feel up to much at the moment but can show some of my recent work.  I have started a couple of machine embroidery pieces- this is one of a set of whimsical cottages which I am making into a kiddy quilt using a  Moda 1930's Playtime charm pack.

This is going to be a wall hanging for my daughter for her newly decorated bedroom 

and this is a new small  string quilt which I found -and I liked the layout of the diagonal strips. 
It will be a nice size for  a charity quilt. 

My own success in a recent give away was the new DVD by Dianne Rusin Doran

It arrived yesterday and I have been playing around with Photoshop Elements and look forward to printing out some fabric to use as the basis for some postcards or embroidered art quilts. So keeping busy still hand quilting my Country Scrappy quilt and also trying to get my Oriental sampler finished at long last. !
