20 quilts this year...

Well, the 20 quilts include small wallhangings.. and this also includes some UFO quilt tops that were completed.

I have three things with hardly anything to finish on them (funky monkey, Mrs Perkins and the peg bag). It just isn't going to happen today.

I pulled out 7 wheelbarrows of weeds today (two days ago I pulled out another 8 wheelbarrows full of weeds) and planted 9 plants into the cottage garden in our rose circle. Tomorrow I need to pull some flowering broccoli out of the vegie patch to put in some spring onions and zucchini (the broccoli has stopped the weeds taking over).

I hope I will be able to start the finished projects for 2009 list very soon.

I have some great news! I mentioned I was a cover girl, but I didn't say what it means!

Remember this quilt?

Here is another view!


Can you imagine how excited I was to find out it was on the cover!!



You will find instructions to make my quilt in the Down Under Quilts yearbook (issue 128, January 2009).



Plus seven pages about me with some quilts seen on here already, plus some others you haven't seen before.

My phots are a little bit blurry. I took them without the flash to ensure there was no reflection. You will have to buy the mag if you want a better look!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
