June 25 2014 Quilting Newsletter
Please don’t think I’m a very organised person, because sometimes I completely lose my mojo and spend the whole day in front of the TV watching Downton Abbey reruns or I’ll spend the day surfing the net for interesting goodies to pass onto you. Sometimes I’ll even spend the day sorting through my fabrics.
I consider myself very fortunate that I’m able to be at home and not have to go out to work for someone else – although I did do that for 40 years. Now I’m my own boss and I can be particularly difficult manager at times LOL!
Last week I posted another book review on a pretty nice publication called Patchwork Loves Embroidery and it’s by an Australian author and quilter – Gail Pan. Here’s the link for you
Don’t forget that the forum is available for you to have your say – here’s the link:
