Happy 2009!

I want to wish all of my readers a Happy Safe and Creative 2009! Thank you for reading my blog ,leaving your comments and thoughts and just being my friends! Thank you for your support of my books and cd's and my fabric and even the occasional quilt purchase.

I am afraid 2008 has ended with another sting in the tail- the new old car that I bought as back up is having starter motor problems. So here is hoping it will get to town so I can get it fixed.

I have had several people email me and ask whether 72 More Ways book was a second edition of my first book 72 Ways. It isn't - it is an entirely new book with entirely new ideas for machine quilting/stitching.

I have been stitching and stitching on my tears/lozenge piece as I was determined to finish it before the new year started so I can start on something fresh for 2009.It's all done now and it's for sale if anyone is interested .It measures 18 inches by 12 inches ( 45 cm by 30 cm) and is entirely stiched by hand.

Hi! Dijanne,

The hand quilting really makes your Tear Drop piece. Cars can be such a nuisance wehter they are old or new, hope you get better soon.

This is gorgeous Dijanne....thankyou for your comments via Soulfood re my textile pieces. I have returned to my first love and aim to concentrate fully on textiles this year and, well, for the forseeable future.
Wishing you well in everything you do and much happiness and peace in 2009.

The 72 More Ways cover is so cool--all the different textures laid out. I am inspired to see what I can do in mosaic.
