Oh Natalie - I am absolutely rapt for you and yes indeed, doing the happy dance too!!! Gosh how you didn't implode with excitement I'll never know! Congratulations!!!! I look forward to purchasing some of your fabric when it hits the stores... I love the selvedge and I just know I'm going to love the fabric design! Can't wait! Thank you for sharing your positive thoughts on the 'achieving dreams' process! Way to go! :-) Hugs sweetie! Vikki xx
Congratulations on your latest book, Rosalie! Christmas is my favourite time of the year, and I never tire of Xmas crafting! To choose ONE thing is difficult... but I think the thing I love the most is the look of excitement and wonder on my kids' faces when they go to bed on Xmas Eve, while we have carols playing in the background. Kids never question miracles, and I love their trust and enthusiasm. Warm wishes! Vikki :-)

Hello gorgeous!! Oh drat sweetie, I was looking forward to a bit of 'plaster of paris'.... we all love a bit of provincial sweetie! Ooh - another idea - a bandaged finger featuring appique birds? Bit of button-hole stitch around edges perhaps? The possibilities are endless!!!! Love your blog sweetie, and love you too! Catch you round like a rissole (just make sure it isn't burnt, sweetie!) Ha! Vikki xoxo :-)

Happy birthday Bloss! Sounds like a wonderful evening in store for you! Theo is just way too handsome in that shirt... dare I say... too sexy for it?!!! Lovely photos of the Japanese garden, Cheryl. I bet you were deep in thought while there, makes you wish it could be relocated as a sanctuary doesn't it? Lots of love sweetie! Have fun! Hugs!!! Vikki xoxoxo

Hi Natalie! :-) WOW - this design is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! I am definitely stitching this one!!! I bet Lecien has sold heaps of Flower Sugar (one of my favourite lines) and Cosmo has employed a whole heap more people to manufacture thread, since you've had your faeries on display!!!! Divine!!!! Warm wishes!! Vikki :-)

Another beautiful design, Cheryl! I like the idea of it in a shabby picture frame... everlasting flowers to brighten a room! I love the pic of Ratty!!!! Maybe he's a bit like me... thinks he's smaller than he really is! LOL Every time I go to buy new clothes I think "nah, that's way too big for me" - only to find that in 'real life' it is usualliy too tight once its on!!! Hugs gorgeous gal! Vik xxxxxxxxxx

Hi Linda! First of all - I'm completely thrilled to have won your beautiful giveaway - thank you! :-) Secondly, I had to giggle at the sign on the beach... that was quite alarming!!!! I haven't had the pleasure (giggle) of dealing with a girl's formal, yet. My son was happy to wear smart black jeans and runners... I think he's allergic to dressing up! Enjoy! Hope the french manicure works out for you both! Hugs! Vikki :-)

Hi Gail! :-) Gosh, you have been busy, busy, busy!! (Do you sleep???!!!) I love both colourways for your quilt - it's always great to see a project made up in different palettes. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you at the AQM... I didn't realise that I talked so much! TWO HOURS?!!!!! That's got to be a record!! Ha ha! I hope your fingers aren't sore from all that stitching! Hugs! Vikki :-)
