Highlights of 2012 - what a year it was
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.
February: Better Homes and Gardens Owl Tree Quilt Kit.
Magical Lands quilt on Red Pepper Quilts. Quilt sewn by Rita.
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.
Cherry Woods is sewn in to this great hat by You Sew Girl.
May: My lego sculpture started its tour of Australia. Months perviously I had been chosen as one of six designers to create a design for Lego. A huge honour for me.
June in the press.
I attended Sydney's Craft Fair for the 5th time, a huge event. Big thanks again to Amy Gunson for your support.
