When Jupiter Aligns with Mars...

After I posted the winner (Rachaeldaiseyof Blue Mountain Daisy) of my little quilt last week, I received an e-mail from Rachaeldaisy, telling me that I had won her give-away. How funny kismet is that?! It’s funny to think that our packages may even have crossed paths over the big and wonderful ocean! 

Look at all my booty! I had planned to order this issue of Quilter’s Companion after I learned that Rachael was featured in it. Her quilts are sensationally fresh and ever so cheerful. I highly recommend getting a copy of this wonderful Australian publication. 
Isn't she adorable?

And, as if the magazine wasn’t enough, she was able to actually find 3 fabrics that I do NOT have in my stash. Yum!

I follow so many wonderful Blogs and I have been fortunate enough to have met a few of you in person. Rachael is one I would like to meet someday. Anyone want to take a ride to Australia with me?

And, an exciting announcement. I mentioned Pam Buda’s fabulous inspiring blog in my last post. Now there is an added incentive to visit her site. Pam will be making regular posts on quilting tips she is calling “Connecting Threads”. Check out her Blog (here). You can also follow along on Facebook or Instagram.

  13. I think our gifts did pass in the air. I love that we won each others giveaways. The universe smiled that day. How fun would it be to have you all come and visit Australia. You could all visit and I'd make a pavlova and Anzac cookies...
