    So many new vices you and your blog have created in my life!!! EPP is my biggest vice, but the fussy cutting you and your ladies do just shows me there are so many new levels I have never thought of. And now that you have me cutting circles…….stitching with Sue Spargos fancy stitches???…oh calm my poor excitedly beating heart! I need to go rest now from just the thought of all that excitement!! ….and then begin…???? Such a fun blog!

    Everyone’s work is so interesting. It is always fun to see how differently frabic is used. The circle bug is alive and well..as is EPP. This technique is a little foreign to the people here but I have spread the bug here and several of my quilting friends are now fussy cutting. I even have the local quilt shop owner and staff using fabrics differently. It’s great fun
    But the best news is that I am returning to Sydney at Easter and my sister and I will drive to Melbourne for the quilt show. Naturally we will be forced to visit a few quilt shops en route.
    Maybe I will get to met you and thank you in person for your wonderful blog
    Now back to stitching

    Beautiful work all around. The circle bug seems to have become an epidemic! I needed to slow down on mine so I pulled out the last of my Lucy Boston blocks to stitch…now that’s another wonderful addiction.
