It's all about a lurker - AKA - secret santa

Photo added to post 2-9-07..............I Can't Believe It's a Beginner" just completed and ready to be quilted..........sorry not a very good picture..there is a strip further down the post........

Hi all you Secret Santa's........this post is to introduce you to Gillian my lurker sewing friend who is now officially a secret Santa...........

(start of I Can't Believe It's a Beginner Nundle 2007)

I spoke to her when I started the swap and she was so tempted to start a blog just to be in the swap..........she just is to busy doesn't always have access to the internet so she offered to be my back up swapper if needed..........

.........well I was in a slightly sticky situation and my solution for this was to include Gillian in the swap.....let me tell you she is excited to say the least...........I did email her secret Santa which we cannot reveal and she has no clue about and she was very happy to make for a lurker friend of mine..........

"Remember When" Nundle 2006 (not her usual colours)

some info about Gillian

  • her favourite colour is blue

  • she loves all things Christmas

  • her favourite quilt designer at the moment is Margot Languedoc from Canada - the last two projects she made have been from her patterns including her Nundle Quilt his year

  • she is one of the girls I go to Nundle with for my fantastic retreat weekend

Between you and me I love Margot Languedoc also as she is The Pattern Basket and the designer of my Butter Scotch Pie (see previous post)

So please leave a comment for Gillian and welcome her to the swap.....................
