A Package from Australia

Just when I thought all the birthday surprises were over, yesterday I received a package from Australia.  It was from my blogger friend, Helen, at Aunty Henny’s.  Inside the package was a beautiful card and a fabric cover for notebooks called a List-Taker.  Unfolded, there was a gorgeous pen and spaces for notepads.  Included was a description of the “Quilted Note-Taker” and a sample of a notebook that would fit perfectly (5×8 inches).  Did you ever see such amazing fabric?

Note the tiny scottie button.

I’ve been the happy recipient of Helen’s projects before and she always includes a link to the pattern.


Patterns are super-easy to order here by e-mail, to pay by PayPal and then to receive the 4-page PDF file to download within minutes ($8.00).   I ordered the pattern, thinking these would make good Christmas gifts.

Check out Helen’s blog for her chats about what she’s quilting along with some great tips and links.
