You may remember that my lovely stitching friend Jo spent one week madly stitching some Boobie Button samples for me before I headed to the US. They were a hit and really helped to showcase the boobie buttons and how they can be used. Thanks heaps Jo. Here are some pics as promised....

Well the Neenie's Garden pattern and shop kit is finally finished and patterns are being folded and packed as I type. So my head can come up for air and I can reaquaint myself with my family, my garden and my blog friends. It seems so long since the US trip which I know I have not told you much about and my last book update. That is because nothing much has happened there! However, there is now some movement and some evidence of progress. So back to the beginning of this instalment.
I then met with Marge the Marketing and Sales Director and picked up a copy of this which was handed out to all stores at market-
having a little cleanup here and have come across two spare half used calendars. It was so exciting when these arrived in the mail seeing us as Miss December's -we had no idea they were coming or that our quilt was even going to be in it. Grandmas got one, dear quilting friends got one - but one can only have so many calendars and I hate to see them go to waste.
So there is still 6 months use to go and of course after that you have some spectacular quilt pictures to drool over and inspire... So.... yes I am leading up to it....... leave a comment and mention this on your blog to be in the running for an American Quilter's Society 2008 Quilting Calendar.

Well I am finally home to stay awhile much to the delight of the girls. Its tag team here however as my DH left this morning for the first of two trips with his work.
and do you think we could stop Lilian talking after she won a most unexpected award for Tasmania's best merchandised store. Well done Esmes...
I can show you what I finished Wednesday morning before leaving after a marathon quilting effort on little Bernie. 6 hours Monday, 14 hours straight on Tuesday and she was ready for binding. Now I have to write up the patterns and shop kit so if I am absent for a little while again I have my fingers glued to the keyboard and my head pointing towards the monitor....
Presenting - Neenie's Garden
It will be on the website with local store listings very soon

just a quick note to let you know I am home safely and the trip was full of exciting and fufilling moments. I have so much to share with you but must keep my nose to the ground until I get through Quilt market in Sydney this weekend. I hope to catch up with many of you there. Until then you can see some pics of our trip here, here, here, here (yes she is sitting in my booth colouring a boobie button!) and here.
