Hi y’all, how was your Easter break? I must admit I’ve spent the better part of my life thinking that you all (those of you not living in Oz) get a long weekend/public holiday break for Easter. I didn’t realise that for a lot of you Easter is just part of a normal week.
We’re (very) lucky to get a four-day public holiday weekend. In recent years this has been eroded by the retail sector, but in general everything outside retail/food shuts for four days. Easter also coincides with our school/University holidays in Queensland so we get a long break. Bliss.
This year the Universities are closing for an extra study week because of the Commonwealth Games. Is anyone going to the Games? We’re not far away but we’ll be (sadly) giving it a miss.
Today I’ve been working on my free Therm-o-Web pattern for this quarter. I’ll get the pattern up later this week. Rem has taken my absence from the sewing table as an invitation and has settled his furry little kitty butt on it – thus preventing me from doing any further work tonight LOL.
I’ve finally managed to find a minute to do the giveaway draw for March… drum roll please… Julie P. won the newsletter giveaway and Regina L. won the Red Boot’s Gang giveaway. Congratulations Julie & Regina! thank you for being a part of the Red Boots family and for your continued support.
April’s giveaway prize for each group is a (1) copy of the Happy Quilts book and (1) starter pack of Heat-n-Bond Lite. You can find details on how to enter here.
Nite guys, I hope you had a lovely Easter, toni xx
