Exciting News & FNWF

I have some exciting news...well I think it is exciting...for all those lovely people in the USA who like my designs and often enquire as to where they can get them in their country.
Well the very lovely Corinna from...
really likes my designs and is stocking some of my patterns. Woo Hoo! Corinna has a lovely on-line shop and you can visit by clicking on her very cute button which you will find on my sidebar.
I have to say a great big thank you firstly to fellow blogger and lovely lady Karen  from Sunburnt Quilts who liked my designs enough to take several as a gift when she met the fellow blogger and quilter extraordinare Pauline aka Quilt'n'Queen on a holiday to the US. This in turn led to Pauline loving them and then championing my cause with her lovely friend Corinna. Viola!!! Thank you so much lovely ladies you are all wonderful \o/ Hope this makes all my US friends very happy as it does me.

Phew! Now! FNWF. I had a very nice evening and was happy with my stitching. Mr R. cooked (went out for chinese takeaway) So that gave me a good start. I managed to get the wrought iron on my roof and a little bit of embroidered gardening as well.
So all in all a good night. Thank you to Cheryll for enabling us all to come together in the spirit of freindship and stitching this year. I have a few chore to attend to and then I am popping around to see what all my  friends got up to last evening.
Well the Christmas Tree is up and decorated which always makes me happy as there is so much of my friends and family represented in the ornaments that grace it. I am afraid as we place it in front of wall to ceiling coloured glass panels it is a bit hard to get the whole lovely effect but I am sure you get the idea.
Before I go I just wanted to mention that I have been getting a lot of really lovely comments from folks who unfortunately are non-reply bloggers. I endeavour to answer and thank every comment left so if I have not responded this is the reason why. I would hate to think you thought I did not appreciate each and everyone. I am putting a link HERE Chooky has a wonderful blog and at the top near her header you will see "How to...Blog Bits" where she explains so wonderfully how to change your setting so you can be responded too.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Blessings Michelle xxx

That's exciting news that there is now an American stockist of your lovely patterns. Your house block is looking wonderful by the way :-) I will have to check out Chooky's info as I really hate it when I can't reply to comments because people are NRB :-( Sometimes it's not really appropriate to go to their blog and try to reply via the comment box as it's possibly off the topic of their post!!
