Posted on December 27, 2012 | 0 comments

Our Christmas was fantastic. I hope yours was as well.  It is nearly the end of 2012 and decided to write about the highlights for the past 12 months, a recap of sorts. What a year it has been. 

January: Imaginary Flowers quilt in the Australian Patchwork and quilting Magazine.

April: Owl Softies were reprinted for the 5th year in a row. I originally designed these panels to encourage young children to sew and now I am meeting many 8 year olds who read my blog because of them.

Best Dress in Magical Lands was featured on You Sew Girl. It is a wonderful new dress pattern. Nikki later gifted me this dress and my daughter has worn it non stop. It is a perfect fit.
