Another busy week – and I am guessing it is just going to keep getting crazier right up till news years day! On the agenda for me – am working on the 2011 Whipup calendar – this is the 3rd year of the calendar and this year I will also be offering it as a printable pdf. I am also working on a shopping cart where I will be offering some print your own quilt patterns and lots of freebies too – once I get the hang of it – all very exciting stuff. I am working on a new quilt design, my second quilt book – all my own designs – is in the final stages of editing and layout – and I am working on a series of kids craft books with an Australian publisher – so thats Uber exciting. Naturally the housework has gone to hell! But who cares about that…

At whipup this week – look out for Elizabeth Hartman’s blog tour appearance on Whipup tomorrow and your chance to win some fabric and a book.
