Christmas in the Hills part 1

Christmas in the Hills was a special time of indulgence. The ladies enjoyed the gathering, with lovely stitching and friendship. Lots of goodies to eat, to buy, enjoy or win! My dear Sarah DD3, has been busy making pinwheels for the goodie bags for ages. (one of Rosalie's patterns in her 'Gift' book) All three girls did a wonderful job, helping me out with preparations while Sara ran the shop so well, leaving me to be able to 'swan' around and enjoy and chat to everyone!
Heres Rosalie Quinlan addressing her group of followers!

One lucky lady, Sandi even won a bundle of Rosie's new fabric range. Take a look, its gorgeous. We will have the range, as soon as possible. Possibly around end of year, once its released. Why not pre-order a fat quarter bundle now!


Finally a big thank you to all the ladies and I do hope you enjoyed your Christmas in July.

Seeing I was supposed to have a give-away last post - being my 50th. AND because I haven't posted for sooo long... I have been rather hectic.... I will have my first giveaway NOW!!!
Leave a comment on... 'what I wish for this Christmas' .....and I will randomly pick a winner.
Prizes are: Bundles of Fat quarters of Christmas fabrics. How about 3 winners.
Seeing I'm in Tasmania now- on holiday, I will draw the winners , Tuesday 11 August.

My first Christmas wish wiuld be a little superficial and would be registration for all sewing retreats for the following year -then I wouldnt have to miss out like I did for Christmas in July. But I will be happy with family, friends and good health

Hi Jane, A very early and cold start to be at "Chirstmas in the Hills" was worth it.The expertise of Rosalie and yourself was evident on the day. A huge amount
of praparation by all made the day a great success and your caterer, she needs to be CONGRATULATED too.
My Christmas wish would be- Quality time with my family, a nice lunch and some relaxation.....

What do I want for Christmas? Gail's new book, Rosie's new book, time to make one project for each and more importantly time with my precious family. Perhaps I shouldhave put that first?

For my children to feel the spirit and magic of Christmas - the baking, the making, and the together-ness

I've already got my Christmas wish arriving around the 4th of December?! Perhaps what I should wish for is that things have returned to "normal" (?) by Christmas?!? A seriously fuss-free Christmas with loved ones.
Enjoy the holiday!
