Had trouble calling me recently ? 
My phone was disconnected  for  3 weeks as I didn't want to go on an NBN contract. 
All is good now as my landline - same number 0354439195 is now being diverted to my mobile at no extra charge to you the caller. 
I haven't updated the message yet if I am unavailable to answer, but please leave a message.  

Round Robin Bears - a sneak peak !!!

Pulled out an old old UFO - a design of mine which will possibly be called "Round Robin Bears", as I am going to  add more borders...... mmmmmm ! Not sure of the size ofthe quilt   yet. 
 I am replacing the old button eyes and stitched mouths and noses with penned features. Then hopefully I'll finish the Broderie Perse borders  on the other two sides and corners. Let's hope it stays out of the UFO pile and gets completed over my Christmas break.  šŸ˜
The kits for this design will be limited to the amount of the beautiful border  fabric I can supply as I have had it stashed away for many years. 
Let me know if you're interested and I will put you on my list - can't guarantee a number yet until I work out how much border fabric will be needed. 

Reds anyone ?

Civil War/reproduction  reds anyone ?
