Just A Quick One!

Really ... I promise! Cross my heart! :0) I know Chookyblue will be shocked but appreciative of a short post, so here we go! :0)

When I popped into see quilter-extraordinaire Rosalie on Monday, what should I spy draped over one of her quilt rails, but a version of my "Fairy Bears And Butterflies" quilt that she had quilted for her friend Ferne. How EXCITING!!! I LOOOOOOOOOVE to see other people's versions of my patterns and know that they've enjoyed making their very own. So, after checking with Rosalie that Ferne wouldn't mind, I snapped a photo of it. Yes ... the tanty-throwing camera is working again ... change of battery type and we're on speaking terms again! YAY! OK ... here's Ferne's Fairy Bears and Butterflies ...

Hasn't she done a lovely job!!! And obviously, Ferne loved the Aviary fabrics as much as I did, cos she's used them for the centre patchwork panel and the outer border. It's so similar to the original quilt, but with just a few little differences in fabrics and placement etc that make it uniquely Ferne's - that's what I love to see! :0) Oh ... and we had a little 'helper' while we were trying to get a snap of the Fairy Bears ...



Rosalie's pretty pampered pooch, Whiskey, needed to remind us that SHE is the centre of attention, thank you very much, not some silly quilt! Tee! Hee! Hee! She is a cutie!

And speaking of cuties ... I received a package in the mail today from the Clever Clogs Cutiepie Clare of Clare's Craftroom. For those of you who haven't discovered Clare's blog yet, pop on over. She designs fun, simple-to-create craft patterns and she has ever so kindly donated a couple to Peg and I as OPAM prizes ...


We have the very handsome Frances Frog and the super-cute bag Catchit that has been designed by Clare to help store your bits and bobs. Thank you so much for your generous donation, Clare! I'm sure the ladies who win these patterns will have a ball creating them! :0) Oh ... and do you see that YUMMY card that she sent me? The recipe for this fabulous looking choccie cake is on the back - think I'll have to test it out for my chocoholic Beloved Geek Boy. :0)

There you go ... short and sweet (literally with the chocolate cake inclusion! Tee! Hee! Hee!) as promised. I'll be back on Thursday with a rather special announcement ... anyone addicted to Christmas is sure to put on their dancin' shoes to happy dance around their lounge room when they find out, so stay tuned!! Right now, though, I'm off to contemplate what to cook for dinner, so til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!
CHEERS!
