Jubilation & celebration!

Jubilation, she loves me again....sang my Bernina when I returned to her after a loooong absence (thankyou Simon & Garfunkel for the inspiration of  Bernina...oops...I mean Cecilia!).
Lots to do & I am determined to get it done...
a bit of a tidy first...
repro 9 patch almost there...
MO Sue Ross BOM lagging behind...
Monica Poole bag done, but how do I get the darn tubular frame to work????
(Any ideas gratefully received!)
Twelve months ago today I began this rambling blog thanks to some special ladies & their infectious enthusiasm...Donna, Maree, Peg, Dale, Fiona & Kerry...thanks for being there!
I think a little celebration is in order...maybe a giveaway inspired by last weekends fun...no special conditions...no need to blog about it ( we don't need treasure hunters to reduce your odds!)...just drop by & leave a message about why you visit me...

Your repro nine-patch is looking just divine; and your sewing area is resembling mine at present!
Have a lovely evening! Bec xxx

My first visit - so there's no need to put my name in the giveaway. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I thought I was the only one who thinks her sewing machine feels neglected after absences. I love the prints in your 9 patch.

Yay! Congratulations Cardy on your 1 year of blogging! Who would have thought that a trip to Nundle would have resulted in a constant blogging addiction!? ;)
