How many other projects will get finished over the holidays….?

And the winners are…….

Thank you SO much for all the lovely, encouraging comments on the last post.  Without further ado the winners are:

 Lisette from Textile Seahorse

Carmel from Solomon Sewing

Louise from One Creative Journey

and the blogless Vireya.

I will be in touch with everyone by email with more details of our day but looking forward to lots of fun and creativity!!


If you would like to go in the draw to win a gorgeous, hand-printed table runner head on over and visit Thea & Sami.  They also have an online shop selling the gorgeous fabrics and products printed in their Brisbane studio.

I was going to blog about Kellie’s amazing giveaway but I’m a day too late………it’s worth poping over and having a look at the gorgeous quilt she’s made anyway.  She’s such a talented lady and hopefully she will be visiting Sewjourn early next year to do a class…..more info when we manage to sort out the details!

And, of course don’t forget to enter my giveaway whilst you are at it……..


What a lovely surprise awaited me when I went to clean Sewjourn earlier this week! about two months ago (that’s how long it has taken me to complete this post!!)  This collage from the talented Tinniegirl. 

Thank you SO much Cath, I just LOVE it.   In fact I love it so much that it’s come home with me to sit in my sewing room for a little while before it’s hung up at Sewjourn (which I know is where it’s intended for).  Now we have the relax, create…….just have to work on the enjoy!

You can buy similar collages here anytime or here this Saturday.

Let’s celebrate with a giveaway…

1 Year, 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days – whatever way you look at it, it has been lots of fun and so rewarding…………yes, it has been hard work at times but good hard work!  And as an added bonus I’ve met so many great people.  So thank-you to each and every one of you – to all those who have helped out in numerous ways, to all the lovely guests (and for your encouraging feedback) and for those of you who read this blog (especially the fantastic people who take the time to leave me comments!)

Let’s celebrate with a giveaway!  It will work in a similar way to this one and I’m sure I speak for everyone when I say it was lots of fun.

If you would like to come and spend a day crafting at Sewjourn with some other creative souls just leave me a comment on this post and I’ll pop you into the draw.  If you have a blog and mention this giveaway let me know and you’ll gain a second entry into the draw.  The four winners will get to come along, with a friend, to relax, create and enjoy for the day on Saturday 30th January 2010.   Please leave your comments by 8pm (AEST) Sunday 5th September and I’ll post the winners on Monday 6th.  Good Luck!!!


studio at Sewjourn by you.

The Studio. This is where you could spend the last Saturday in January….

PS  If you want to see some great photos of Sewjourn go to and search for Sewjourn – the amazing ladies were retreating this past weekend take the most awesome shots…….I’d like to think if we upgraded our camera we could do the same but I think there’s a bit more to it than that…..!
