Julie Burmeister, from Cooranbong, NSW,
for her Foxley Village project:
“I just love your wonderful magazine and look forward to it
arriving every month. I made a commitment last year to sew
your BOM, Foxley Village (by Natalie Bird from February to
November 2016/Vol 17 Nos 2-11), and it was a joy to make.
This is my version hanging on the bedroom wall facing the
bed, so we wake up to this wonderful quilt every morning.
Thanks to all for a lovely project.”

SEW MUCH FUN
Beverley Vass, from Ormiston, Qld:
“My friend and I share a love of our
gardens and sewing, so this was the
perfect project to make for her: Joy of
a Garden by Anni Downs (from Vol 11
No 5). It was a challenge in some
areas, but so much fun and so
rewarding, especially when I saw my
friend’s face when she opened her gift.
The stand advertised with the
project was no longer available so
I sourced a large timber spool, which
worked out to be a perfect alternative.”
OFF TO ENGLAND
Ann Marie Jeff eries, from
Yarloop, WA: “This is a doll
I have just finished as a gift
for my baby granddaughter in
England. This adorable doll with
her bonnet, And Baby Makes
Three, was created by Simone
Gooding for the September 2014
issue (Vol 15 No 9). I painted the
eyes instead of using glass eyes
as stated in the pattern as the
doll was for a baby. Thanks for
giving your readers access to
patterns from such talented
artisans. We are blessed!”
