This week has been so busy – my daughter turned 10 and we had a pre-teen disco – it was a huge hit with homemade pizza and pavlova and lots of pop music. I haven’t done much making this week – have been busy getting my manuscript for next book to my publisher – sent it off yesterday – still some details to finalise but am so relieved never the less. This week I will be in Melbourne at the Stitches and Craft show, Friday, Saturday and Sunday I will be at the Can Do book stand (Stand 158) on the ground floor at 11.30am and on Saturday I will be in studio 1 at 10.20am talking about everything from blogging to quilting and of course the new book. I am also really looking forward to Jodi Carlton’s talk on blogging on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 1.30pm, and there looks to be a great class run by Tegan from Ink + Spindle on screen-printing,

Mini quilt month last month was so much fun (in honour of my new book)Whip Up Mini QuiltsWhip Up Mini Quilts if you missed it check out the archives to mini quilt month here – learn about the contributors, get patterns and tutorials and lots of lovely mini quilty things.

Reviews: Lots of lovely mentions of my book around the traps (its mentioned in Entertainment Weekly #issue 5/7/10) + the book now has a page.

Check out the Make It! eBook series by Curbly – is a seriously excellent e-book – the latest one is all about fixing up second hand stuff, you will find 14 makeovers furniture restoration projects that are completely achievable weekend projects using easily found thrift store goodies.

Don’t forget to check out the new modern quilters e-zine – Fat Quarterly – and have you peeked in on the process videos on etsy yet?

Check out my round up of corsages, boutonnieres and ruffly things – in time for mother’s day
