The end of year Christmas get together at The Patchwork Angel www.patchworkangel.com.au was packed with happenings!!

Penny had received her order of my book "Fool Proof Crazy Quilting"


The girls saw my quilt for the first time ..................


My husband Vaughn was there and as you all know, I could not have written this book without his help. Here he is wallowing in the applause !!!
