my new ultra-long Janome quilting ruler and new rotary cutter blade (I can only assume my original was blunt when I bought it as this one is a revelation)

  1. Hey, that's brilliant Helen! Well done you. And thanks for the links too. I have yet to buy my first cutting board as everytime I start looking I get so confused by the choice. Not sure which is good and which not. Will definitely use your links. Have a good weekend xx

    love those plant pots, off to bookmark the link.

  3. Happiness indeed Helen! Congratulations on being in print!! x

  4. Yay well done! It must be amazing to see it in print. When's the book released?

  5. Duh! It says on the amazon link.

  6. Congratulations on getting your pattern in print. It must feel fantastic! Love the loooooong quilting ruler and those pretty little fabric covered buttons.

  7. Congratulation on your tutorial being in print!! Thanks for all those interesting links. I must check out the plant pot one.
    Also well done on sorting your fabric stash. It looks neat and tidy.

  8. I'm not surprised that you're happy. Congratulations on being in print, too!

    I've got 3 sets of seeds growing around here. Wish me luck - so far I've managed to kill off all seedlings brought home from school / preschool...

  11. Congratulations!
    You deserve it,, I love your cover.
    The plant pots are wonderful too, thank you

  12. How fabulous to see your pattern in print! Well done. I love the pictures of what you have been up to. I think my blade is blunt too, it never seems to cut in one go now!

  13. Helen! Loud squeals of delight for you with the pattern - it looks wonderful! What a fantastic feeling that must be.

    I love the little seed boxes - we recently made party hats out of newspaper - there's something about newspaper makes that's so lovely to look at once it's folded with nice crisp edges. x
