I have had such a busy year with absolutely no spare time until recently. It's hard to believe that I started making this quilt in September and it had to be 2m square (79" square). I sewed every spare chance I had and managed to quilt it in 13 days. Mind you it nearly killed me and my hands were swollen and aching. I cannot show you the quilt yet but here is a picture of me quilting it.
I realised that I had overdone it and so had to have a break from sewing and give my hands, arms and shoulders time to recover.
I had won a lovely prize at the Victorian Quilters Showcase and hadn't had a chance to redeem it. So here was my chance. I had won an $800 voucher from Horn cabinets and they had given me a booklet of their products for me to choose from.

I chose two chests of drawers, a wide one and a narrower thread storage chest.
Not long after I ordered them they arrived. They actually arrived flat packed and my husband took most of the day to build them for me.
I love them and they are already filled with supplies and my sewing room has been reorganised a bit to fit them in. They are a really good quality and I am so grateful to Horn Cabinets for such a generous prize.
I also received another prize of 6 months' supply of Liberty Fabrics from The Strawberry Thief. Here is where I have to confess that I have never bought any Liberty Fabric before but I know many people who absolutely love them.
I have received 3 months' supply so far and I was amazed at the wonderful quality of the fabric. This is why people love Liberty fabric!
Every month I also receive a chart telling me the names of the fabrics I have received.
Now I'll have to design a quilt using these gorgeous fabrics. I think I have a glimmer of an idea of what I could do with them; I'll wait until I receive the entire 6 months' supply first.
Thank you to both sponsors Horn Cabinets and The Strawberry Thief . You have made me very happy.
Bye for now,
