January 30 2013 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, itís a world gone crazy at present, on both sides of the equator. The cold weather is really making its self felt in Europe, UK and the US and I hope all my readers from those areas are coping OK and staying warm.

For us southern Hemispherians here in Australia, weíre coping a hiding from Mother Nature at present. Not only with huge fires in many states, but floods and wild winds closer to home for me here in Brisbane. Iím one of the lucky ones with only minor damage in the garden. Some people have suffered flooding up to the rooves and wonít be able to return to their homes for months. Not sure whatís happening in Africa or South America, but I can imagine there are some climate dramas going on there too! As I said, itís a world gone crazy!!

Iíve made the most of the enforced house arrest and have been sorting through my fabrics and projects. Iím getting to that point where Iím ready to jettison some projects half done (PHDís) and see them off the property to another home where they just might find themselves finished! I donít hesitate to get rid of (rehouse) any projects I donít like and am not likely to finish. Lifeís too short for sure, and by making room in my sewing cupboard, I can start the BOMís I bought 10 years ago! LOL.

Speaking of BOMís, I posted another article with links to more new BOMís that have been launched for the 2013 year. Hereís the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art179338.asp

Weíve had some great conversation over at the forum about gifting quilts to those who do not appreciate it. Have your say there: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/803420#Post803420

Iíve been busy finding some stuff for you, and Iíve had some links sent to me to include this week. Thanks Bonnie. Have fun with these:
