All the projects I am working on or intend working on are listed on my Quilting Projects Page, which I update as I am working on them. I am not entirely sure that is the best way to do this – if anyone has any suggestions on how to do better, I am open to hearing it!  It’s already technically a misnomer anyhow, as it has sewing and softie projects listed which are not exactly quilting are they?

It’s also a little incomplete at the moment.

The most significant omission (which I will try to rectify some time today) is that I have not listed the Vignette in Stitches mystery Block of the Month anywhere.

What is that? Well, Leanne Beasley of Leanne’s House is currently publishing a new (issue 2 currently at the printers!) quarterly magazine called Vignette – collectable inspiration.  This is a quote from Leanne about the mystery quilt:

One of the most exciting things for me is sharing my latest ‘big quilt’ with you in Vignette. I do so hope that you will join me in making the 16 block ‘Vignette In Stitches’ mystery quilt. The quilt will run over eight issues so you will have plenty of time to complete it.

This is an image from Leanne’s Blog showing the first block, Isn’t it the bomb?!

Not only is the quilt awesome and exciting being a mystery, but an avid stitcher Perri (proprieter of Stitches in the Bush) has created a team blog for all of us (yes me too!) who are going to be working on the quilt together! The blog is named after the quilt – Vignette in Stitches Blog and I am so excited to be a team member, even though I have yet to order my fabric (aiming for next week) and threads for the wonderful quilt.

Then in the last few days I have decided to dive into my first 2 swaps, I am quite excited by both of these too!

Swap Number 1 – Is a Hot Pad Swap, hosted by Cheryll from Gone Stitching – The Post with Info is here.  Thanks to Cheryll for organising that and letting me in on my first official swap!

Swap Number 2 – Is a 12inch block swap at Block Swap Adventure – which goes month by month. I think I will stick to the 2 for now and see how I go 🙂

oh… what did I win?  Well I few days ago, I had a shameless Please Vote for me Entry on my blog… the competition I entered was for Australian Residents only.  They would select 3 entrants from each of the 8 Australian States (for those from overseas – Western Australia, Northern Territory, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania ) would be chosen based on the number of votes they received. And then those 3 would be judged on a sample 100 word adventure blog post.  And the winner, gets one free item per month from the web site lastminute.com.au, every month for year, which they then have to write a review on for the Live Every Last Minute Blog!

I am the winner for South Australia and am anxiously awaiting notification of what my first assignment will be 😀
