Yes, It's Me! - DUQ Issue 131!

Oh, where do I start? It is with great humility and happiness to think Creative Living Media, Lorraine, Deborah and Lauren have chosen to do a Profile on me to be included in the above Issue! Thirteen years of quilting - almost to the day - I am so happy to think I have inspired other quilters in Australia!

At the moment, I am having the time of my life being with quilty friends in real life and lots of friends in Blogland, too! It doesn't get any better than this and I hope I can inspire others to begin a quilting and blogging journey!
Many of the finest, caring people have come into my life because of patchwork and quilting - you know who you are and many thanks and love to you all!Thank you, Maree for the mention on your blog!
I have raided the shelves of newsagencies in my area - there are several people I would like to send copies to - wish I could do it for anyone who would like a copy!
There's another two pages, but enough of that - these are my blocks for the Rainbow Quilt Swap! Oh, what a lovely quiet, uninterrupted day I have had - all nine done now, so too late to change my mind again (lol)! I'm in there with some of 'the guns of the USA' - hope I come up to the standard! This has been a lot of fun! Blocks will be in the post on Monday, Jane!
Happy weekend - hugs♥
