  6. My favorite magazine, if only it were available here, I can't understand it because our bookstores carry other AU quilting and sewing magazines. Sigh. Love your blocks (don't tell anyone but I'm a bit behind).

  24. Have you been cracking the whip over yourself?? But "Good Job" anyway.
    Lucky you to get your Homespun - is it becase my Surname starts with W or is it becaise I live in Queensland that they are in the shops before I get mine?? Really P's me off.

  25. TTS is a great SAL project, not too hard to keep up with - loving it. I also love Homespun but it seems to take up to a week longer to get delivered in WA than in the Eastern States - baa humbug, can't wait to see Lisa's project, they do such pretty pics & layouts. Tracee xx
