It’s my turn for the Xmas freebie!

Hello friends!  Gosh, hasn’t this ‘crazy time of the year’ come around so quickly!?  It won’t be long now until we put the Christmas decorations up and start slurping on the egg-nog! :-)

Have you visited the branches of Among the Gum Trees yet?  Today is my turn for the Xmas freebie and I really hope you like it.  I decided to create a hanging ornament, just click on the picture below and you can download it.  :-)

I have been working like a trooper this past few weeks on many new designs, most of which have been for magazine commissions.  Kept that one quiet didn’t I?!! :-) I did share my news with some close friends, but I kind of felt a bit shy sharing it with a wider audience.  Crazy eh?!  Anyway – I have even more exciting news because {insert drum roll here!}I am launching the first two (of many) Sew Useful Designs patterns in my etsy shop….. TOMORROW!!!

Fancy a sneak peek?

How about a little clue?

Xmas list seasonal notes

And because I am crazily excited about sharing my designs with you I have decided to have a little giveaway with them!  So for now I will say Adios, and look forward to catching up again tomorrow!

Ooh, but before I go, I must share with you that Windows Live Writer is an absolute breeze!  Thank you so much Vicki for putting me on to it, my fellow gumnut friend! he he he…  I am a very happy bunny!  Or should I say “I’m a very happy Red Robin”, considering the current season?!

Much love to you all from a very excited Vikki x  :-)

Hiya hun, Thank you for a lovely Red Robin design, I am feeling lots of him being made in this household. The colours that you have done it in are stunning as with all of your work! I am so thrilled about your magazine work, when you told me originally I went round with a silly grin and told DH when he was outside gardening, I don't think he appreciates it all like I do and these people I talk about that he has never met make it even harder for him to comprehend. Our xmas dekkies were going to go up last weekend but it will have to be next weekend now. I love, love, love the whole season.It has got a bit flat now the kids are so much older but just imagine, one day there will be grandchildren I hope-wahoo (no rush though)

Jeanette said...
