Fabric shopping and giveaways


I've been shopping again! I just couldn't resist purchasing some of Rosalie Quinlan's new fabric range when I spotted it in my local patchwork store. The range is called Grandmother's Flower Garden, by LECIEN. The designs are sweet and fresh, with a dash of funky thrown in for good measure. If you want to check out the full range, this is a good post to read from Rosalie's blog. The ric-rac and buttons were thrown into the shopping basket because they looked like they could use the company! *cheeky grin*!



I have also been shopping at Mothers Cupboard! Have you been for a visit? The gorgeous Fiona is having a sale at the moment and her fabrics sprung out of the sale pages and spoke to me! They said, "Buy me Vikki... you've got to, I'm just too good to pass up!" So guess what? I need to make some more space in my sewing room! *giggle*!! :-)

Now, we only have another day before the Gum Tree Designers' giveaways come to a close. Have you entered them all? If you are unsure you can visit the Among the Gum Trees blog where we collectively sit on the branches of the eucalyptus trees, and visit each of us in turn. But before you go, why don't you start with Vicki's blog? Just click on the link below! While you're there, check out the beautiful bag that Vicki had published in Down Under Quilts. Too, too cute! She has a link to the free download, too. :-)

I shall have a few more piccies to share with you soon. Until then - Good Luck with the giveaways!!!

Hugs! Vikki x
