Hey lovelies, thanks for your patience. I get a migraine about twice a year and Friday was the day.
I’ve uploaded this month’s This Little Piggy block to the website. I’ve also uploaded – at the lovely Pam’s request – a pig template with a hair bow.You can find all of the blocks by clicking on the “This Little Piggy” tab in the menu at the top of the page.
Each month we have a fantastic Therm-o-Web Heat-n-Bond Giveaway! The prize winner will be randomly chosen from our Facebook, Instagram, Newsletter, and blog entries and drawn on the ‘new block’ release date each month.
Charlot E. has won last month’s giveaway, congratulations Charlot your prize is on the way!
Enter our Month #6 giveaway by emailing us and telling us your favourite song.
Pink Piggy Farm has been uploaded to Etsy and the webstore and is on special for the next couple of days.
If you can’t find the pattern please use the store search function. I’ve just found out that Etsy doesn’t show always show ALL of the patterns available, you might only see the most popular or whatever other ridiculous parameters they set.
Okey dokey I need to cook dinner and get some work done. I have gnomes, owls, and unicorns on my work table right now. Have a great week, toni xx
Ps. Dave the scrub turkey for your viewing pleasure…
Hi y’all, another crazy busy week has passed and I feel like the world is passing me by. Some weeks I think I go to bed on Sunday night and wake up on Friday morning, bypassing the days in between.
We’ve reached mid-term holidays for Uni and it’s time for a ‘mom’ break. I’m hoping to get a ton of sewing done. Being home for more than an hour at a stretch will be a novelty after such a brutal timetable this term.
Our eldest daughter is heading off to France tomorrow night for a Uni study tour and conference. I’m so excited for her, it’s a wonderful opportunity. I’m also a mite jealous (but in a good way) LOL. It’s been six years, almost to the day, since I stood on the banks of the Seine.
A huge CONGRATULATIONS to Kerry (newsletter) and Sandra (Red Boots Gang) who are the winners of our May Therm O Web giveaway! I’ve messaged both winners. Stay tuned for June’s prize giveaway.
Have a lovely weekend everyone, I’ll be pulling my hair out in frustration at this koala quilt! toni xx
Congratulations to our Red Boots Gang member Dianne R. and our newsletter subscriber Melody D. who have each won a prize in our April Therm O Web Happy Quilts giveaway! I’ve sent our lucky winners an email. Happy Monday lovelies! xx
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
