Butterflies, Apples, Pears and Planets!

Hope you have all enjoyed the long weekend and have been creative.  The break over Easter was a great time for me to do some things I have been trying to do for a while.  A case of so much to do so little time.  So here is what I have been up to.

My first planet block. So now I need to get that sketch book out again to work on the rest of the space range.

 Because I have been doing a stall on Sundays at the North Lakes Market (the weather was fantastic Sunday) I wanted to have something for mums & girls as I could not take the disappointment on their faces when they realised it was all boys previously.  So a sketch I had of apples & pears became my new Tea Towels which I am very pleased with.  I can see some place mats being made out of this too.  Because it is not gender specific I am sure that the males out there will like it too. What do you think?

I was not sure if my new butterfly blocks would please the girls but the response yesterday proved that I have it right. As they said, how cute.  I can see some T Shirts with this on it too.

I will be at the North Lakes Markets next Sunday then every 2nd Sunday after that.  I will list the dates on my Blog and would love you to come and say hello.  It is such a nice spot by the lake and so family orientated including the four legged family members.

Hope you have all enjoyed the long weekend and have a good week.

Till the next post stay well.

Soothe Your Soul

Hi everyone,

This is more for Karen from Soothe Your Soul.  Karen has net curtains in her massage/reflexology room and we decided that her logo printed on some white material would be the perfect way to hem them.  I have tested my new red on this as it is the perfect color to match.  So one lot down and another to go.  Then will come the  hemming!  Karen has given me a wonderful massage followed by reflexology on my feet today so I am feeling very relaxed and that is what I am going to do for the rest of the day.  Catch you all later.

So the new winner is ......


Congratulations Quiltjane. If you can email me your postal address I will happily send you your goodies next week.  MooMummy if you have been sick or away I will send you the same if you contact me.

So back into it and will have another post soon. 

Enjoy the holiday everyone.

Market Day

Hello everyone,

I finally had my first market day, how exciting!  Jessica from Scrappy n Happy was kind enough to come and look after the stall for me as I was next door doing my ENJO stall.   The North Lakes Market had a big launch day yesterday.  While it was very windy (as per normal) it was a lot of fun for everyone including the stall holders as the entertainment and children getting their faces painted was quite amusing.

The bright colors attracted a lot of kids.  Do you see my new T Towel on the right?  I am really pleased with this and will put a better picture up when I get some decent light.

MooMummy who won the give away has not contacted me with her details so if I don't hear from MooMummy by the 20th of April EST I will redraw the give away on the Thursday 21st April.

I will have more exciting news to share later in the week. So until then have a good week.

Hi all,

Just a quick message.  Check out Quilting Gallery for some fantastic buttons which they are giving away.  I have seen some of these before and wondered where they came from.  Such a nice story too and just goes to show what you can do for the community.

Must rush should be getting ready for work but this just caught my eye.

and the WINNER is.............

Hello everyone,

My assistant did the draw and the WINNER is


If you can email me your address to dfowkes@powerup.com.au I will mail your package out.

Thank you all for entering my giveaway and leaving lovely comments.  MooMoommy I would love to see what you make from the 3 pieces of dyed fabric and the 4 Round Car blocks. I am thinking that the new grandchild will be getting a lovely present!

For those of you that didn't win, sorry but I do sell the Car Blocks in packs of 3 (colours of your choice ) for AU$12.95 and the fabric is AU$6.00 (380mm x 545mm). Postage will be extra depending on where you live but in Australia it normally costs AU$1.20. Did you notice the quilt the giveaway is sitting on? It is made using my Square Car blocks and has my stripy material around the block.  I love the way they are so bright.

Well off to work on those space blocks, can't wait to print them and show you all.

Happy sewing

The Hiatis is over ..... GIVEAWAY

Hi everyone,

It has been some time since I last blogged, October in fact! Illness and other problems have been keeping me away but we are back on track now.

My SIL Jessica from Scrappy n Happy has donated a quilt that she made out of my printed blocks and some of the dyed material to Quilts for Queensland. It was set up so they could give a quilt to some of the people that lost everything in the floods. Jessica has done a fabulous job. Check her blog out for more pictures as this is only the back!

To celebrate my return to the “blogging world” I have decided to do a giveaway of some of my hand printed blocks and dyed material.

4 of my cute Round Car Blocks each 7”x7”
3 pieces of my hand dyed material in Green, Yellow/Orange & Blue each 15” x 24 ½”

So somebody will be getting $32.00 worth of hand printed product for FREE!

To enter you need to be one of my followers and leave a comment. I will be picking the winner randomly on Wednesday 16th of March 2011.

You can purchase too but if you are in the draw for the giveaway you might just get them for free. If you are interested in making Scrappy n Happy’s quilt you can contact Jessica and she will be happy to give you some information.

I am busy drawing up my space range, lots of stars, planets & a rocket or two. So can’t wait to start printing those. There are a few more things I am thinking about but there are just not enough hours in the day.  Will be busy at the sewing machine this weekend so may have something to show next week.

I look forward to hearing from you all. Remember you have to be in it to win it!
