I won at Don't look Now!!!

That's the name of an Australian quilters blog that I follow. Besides being a busy mother, she's a pattern designer and teacher. I love her girly and cute patterns that she developed for quilting magazines. She's has some awesome give-aways at her blog and I've been eying her patterns for some time now.

I had planned to buy this Rainbow Lollipops pattern soon on her website once things settled down from the wedding. And guess what.. it turns out that I won a pattern on her blog post from July 22. So now I'll have 2 patterns. She's in Fiji right now on a winter vacation, so I'll let you know when I get my package and show you.

Yippee. I love it when I win things. She has a free pattern on her website too, for a pillow. It's sweet. Go check out her blog here... Go look at her archives because there are some amazing pictures of some of her patterns in development. I love them all.

Also, did you know it's Winter in Australia? I keep forgetting that. It's a 30 degree hot day here in Eastern Canada. We've been waiting a while for it, so I'm glad the dry weather is here.

WOW! That quilt is spectacular! Do you ever think of taking personal orders from dear friends? lol!
P.S. I had lunch with Donna today and she pointed out all of your grandchildren! They are so cute! What a great family you have!

That would explain the comments on a blog I follow about the cold and it being winter in Australia. Did you know some Aussies have outdoor toilets, complete with running water??? Here's the link:

By the way, I LOVE the quilt in this picture. Forget the little girls, I want it! lol!
