Patterns! Patterns! Patterns!

OK ... don't fall over, I know this is my third post in as many days, which is a little unusual, but I just wanted to pop in quickly to talk about ... PATTERNS!!! No, I'm not releasing a new pattern ... yet! :0) Though I DO have several in various stages of sample stitching and instruction writing - I just seem to have been thrown into a complete muddle by so many long weekends, short work weeks, playing catch-up, trips away ... gee life gets complicated, doesn't it! Tee! Hee! Hee!

No ... the first pattern I want to show you was a sweet surprise sent to me by the Super-Sweet Sarah. You see, I bought some yummy charm square packs from Sarah, which put my name into her end-of-month prize draw for her lovely on-line shop "Patchworks Plus". Sarah sent me a surprise email on Sunday to say I was the lucky winner for April! WOW! How cool is THAT! She said she'd be sending my prize this week and her postie must have hit the 'TURBO' button, cos today, MY postie left this in my mailbox for me ...

A gorgeous pattern by Leanne Beasley called "My Favourite Things". Now, you KNOW I love Leanne's embroidery/stitchery designs, cos I've been showing you my progress on my "Butterfly Gargen" quilt that she designed, so you KNOW I was over the moon to receive this pretty pattern - THANKS SARAH!! If you haven't ever visited Sarah's on-line store, I reccomend a visit ... just don't tell your husbands that it was ME that sent you there! Tee! Hee! Hee!

The second pattern mention I thought I'd share with you is rather exciting, too. My lovely friend Marion at my home-away-from-home, Quilters Angel, has recently started a fabulous treat for on-line shoppers. Each week, Marion will be offering a "Pattern Of The Week" special especially for on-line shoppers. The featured pattern each week will be on super-special for just $10 and will be featured on Marion's blog. How cool is THAT!! This week's featured pattern is a stitchery by Ella & Skysie Designs called "Fairy Cakes"

Isn't it 'sweet'! Get it ... fairy cakes ... sweet ... oh never mind!!! :0) If you'd like to get your very own copy of this gorgeous and rather versatile stitchery pattern, pop across and visit Marion's shop web site ... or if you're a local like me, you can buy it in store just by letting the gorgeous gals in store know that you saw the special on the blog. And don't forget to check back with Marion each week to see what other fabulous pattern specials you can snaffle!! Oh ... I'd probably prefer it if you didn't tell your husbands I told you about THIS either ... or they'll be after me with a big stick for encouraging you all to spend more play money on stitching stuff! Tee! Hee! Hee!

And now ... it's back to our regularly scheduled program here at the Meares' Madhouse, home of Tag Along Teddies designs ... GROAN!! That means pattern instruction writing!! Ah well, I'll console myself by thinking of how much fun the pattern give aways will be when I'm ready to release new patterns! :0) Til next time ...
