... but the label has been sewn on Meg's quilt and it's now winging it's way across to Perth together with a pile of patterns. I believe there may well be some Meg's Garden packs on Julie's stand so make sure you take a peek if you are over that way!
I have finished all of those sock monkeys bar one ... a special one that I will tell you more about in my next post. They are in the back of an Australia Post truck together with their respective pillow or pattern making their way to their new homes. Julie's parcel is also in some sorting area preparing itself to be whisked away to the USA.
Blogless Elaine was the first person to contact me from Hot Possum after purchasing one of my patterns so another pair of socks will be requiring 'monkey-fying' (I know that's not a word!)... a job for later in the week!
and remember that pile of lovely fabric ...
... well I have been loving spending some quality time with it since my last post.
This little project has a very special purpose .... it is going to become the giveaway pattern that will replace the monkeys that I have previously given away when a retailer starts selling my patterns ... and it just so happens that a new retailer started selling my patterns this week!
Patchwork Angel on the Sunshine coast (in Queensland for those non Australians) has apparently already sold a fabric pack for Garden Party ... there's absolutely no stopping Penny! I will giveaway this new pattern to the first person who contacts me with proof of purchase of one of my patterns from Patchwork Angel. If you happen to be up that way make sure you stop in and say hello! Pam has a pretty extensive on-line shop and blog.
I must also say ... just in case you haven't noticed ... it isn't quite finished! It will be a bolster styled pillow :). This pattern will only be available through this giveaway and for all future new retailers.
There has also been a new development being spoken about over the last day or so ... here and here. It will be interesting to see what pans out ... poor Mr DLN is already trembling with fear of being left in the clutches of the kiddos for a whole weekend.
I'm off for now to finish my contributions for the Mothers day stall at school tomorrow.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
PS. I am looking forward to a relaxing day with you all on Sunday! I love you guys!
