Thank You, Bonnie!

Wow, these pics aren't looking too good today - don't know why? - they looked really nice in the previews! Here we have current Issue 130 of Down Under Quilts, featuring my Liquorice Allsorts, Bonnie's 'Carolina Crossroads'! It is featured in an article on Mystery Quilts. I feel very honoured and humble being published - thank you all at Creative Living Media! Oh, guess what my Easter Swap partner will be receiving with her other 'goodies'!

Now, I am Posting about this old mag that I have promised to send to Kathie of Inspired by Antique Quilts - quite some time ago - oh, it's embarrassing! Promises, promises - I have another pattern that I have ordered for her and when that arrives, the parcel will be sent to Kathie - I thought if I make a public commitment, I will be really disgraced if I don't honour it.
As you all know, Kathie is besotted with antique reproduction fabrics (creating the most wonderful repro quilts!) and probably has a stash that would make mine look like nothing and I have quite a lot - however, I know she really loves red and green - this one is Nancy Kirk Civil War II 1855-1870, possibly 6 or 7 years old and a really wonderful green! Enjoy, Kathie - Kathie is one of my oldest Blogland Friends, know what I mean?

Have had a busy week in the garden - just glorious with the cooler mornings and delightful sea breezes - I have been so motivated about gardening, it has taken priority over everything else! See my glorious kalamata olive tree - absolutely laden with fruit - hope it all ripens and I get a chance to pickle/brine/preserve some!

Thoughts of you all in south-east Queensland as cyclone Hamish hovers around - we must stay positive!
No sewing this weekend - never mind - hugs♥

Congrats on Licorice Allsorts being published. I LOVE that green fabric...my favorite color. We had a wonderful taste of spring yesterday and lots of little green things popping their heads from the ground. I can't wait for all the glorious color.

Lurline congratulations on your fame! You deserve it. Your quilt is outstanding.
I too have been blogging with Kathie forawhile when I realized just the other morning that she designs quilts for magazines.
Isaw one in a mag and emailed her immediatly.
I am going to have to make one of her designs.
I just simply love trees and plants that give us food.
