Hi Everyone,

Not many days to Christmas now but there's still time for shopping.  All mail leaving this week should still reach every State before Christmas.  If you need an item as a Christmas Present please do consider Express Post, particularly for WA and NT.  It is only $1.50 more for large parcels and often only a few dollars extra for smaller items.  Last mail will be despatched on Wednesday 22nd December and no mail will leave here after that until Tuesday 4th January, 2011.

We are visiting Melinda (2nd daughter) on the NSW South Coast as the whole family is celebrating Christmas as her house this year.  We are all so looking forward to it.  John is truck driving for the wheat harvest at the moment, so depending upon the weather and if it is all complete before Christmas, that will depend if we then have a few days away until New Year.  Fingers crossed.

It has been brought to my attention that my special Book Clearance emails only reached half the people on my Newsletter List.  These went out on 5th & 8th December.  My apologies if you missed out.  Just a little internal hiccup.  Therefore, I have searched the stock and have another offer for you so as everyone may be given the opportunity of an extra treat for Christmas.

In the original Book Clearance List, the following are still available and you may order BY PHONE ONLY (0269 202238) choosing ANY THREE for just $30.00 including postage.  Not each, but all three for that price.  You must choose three.  Originally, there was a huge list but they got snapped up pretty quickly.  Remember, these are not on my website so if you wish to view any one, please "Google" the title.

Now, here's some pre-Christmas Treats.

As you know, I'm one of Ricky Tims' greatest fans and this week he sent a Christmas Video doing his usual "muck-up playing", so for those who may not be on his newsletter list, here's the link for you.  His Musical CDs make great Christmas Gifts too or to spoil yourself!   I love his piano playing and he certainly is a gifted artist - being a Professional Concert Pianist as well as a prolific quilter.  Once you have viewed his playful Jingle Bells on You-Tube, make sure you listen to others shown, in particular, Small Town Christmas Time. 

To celebrate the season, Ricky has arranged and recorded a new version of Jingle Bells that is sure to put a smile on your face. No need for that morning cup of coffee to get you going  -  just take a look at the video and you'll be wide awake in no time! CLICK HERE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Ricky said:

It was the piano that started the whole video idea. Our neighbors have a wonderful property up at 10,000 ft elevation near my home in La Veta, Colorado. Years ago the family hauled an old upright piano up to their mountain cabin. Someone eventually put it outside where years of snow, rain, and cold eventually took their toll.


There are deserted gold mines with deep shafts on their property too!. A few years ago the family realized the open mine shafts were dangerous so they started filling them in with trees etc. The piano was also dumped on top of the pile. In the video, I'm literally standing above the shaft of an abandoned gold mine!

After arranging and recording Jingle Bells the week of December 6, 2010, I started thinking about doing a music video and the old piano called started calling to me. I thought, "How cool could this be - to shoot a video with a decrepit piano while I'm standing over a gold mine?" That was the seed that took me on this journey. The mountain cabin is cozy and decorated with standard mountain-type items such as lots of antlers and a bear rug. It was the perfect setting to bring my new zany arrangement of Jingle Bells to life. Thankfully there was a bit of snow up there to help set the scene.


Factoid #1 - It was about 15º F with a wind chill of 0º F. Brrr. Yes, that's me in my boxer shorts!

Factoid #2 – It took about 2.5 hours to shoot. - Yes we were freezing - and even though it was sunny, you’ll notice a few snowflakes coming down. No, they were not fake special effects.

Factoid #3 -  The video was shot by Justin Shults with the help of our neighbor Jim Hoobler. Jim's wife, Peggy, took still photos and managed all the outfits and props.

Factoid #4 – The video was completely produced (shot and edited) in less than 12 hours. It was edited by yours truly.


So - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. If you like it, please forward this message. Help me spread a bit of Christmas cheer and be sure to tell everyone it came from your friend, Ricky Tims


Now you just have to view his video clip!

  Here's another link to read, just for interest and amazement.  It's local!  One of the girls from an internet group I belong to alerted us to it so I thought you may find it interesing too.  Who says there's no value in quilting!


Have you visited my blog lately?  You can select to have them emailed to you automatically, just check out the section on the right hand side of my blog.  The one I posted yesterday shows ideas for laminating your fabric with Heat 'n Bond's Iron-On Fusible Vinyl .  This is a great product that you may not know about.  There are some good photos on my blog to give you some ideas.

Christmas Wish List

Make it easy for the family..... Print your own Christmas Wish List from Punch with Judy and place it on your fridge for everyone to see.

If you like Loralie Designs here is a free download for machine embroidery, courtesy of Loralie Designs Website.

  Here's the link to download it:


There's a few Loralie Ornaments left on the Specials Page, when I reduced them so drastically, they went WHOOSH!  Only a couple left.


Do you like items from the Red Hat Society?  Here's a panel that is a special for you and I only have a few.  The Red Hat Panel has 8 separate images.





Now, after all your Christmas Shopping, hopefully, you'll have some dollars left to participate in our famous January Website Birthday Specials.  Remember they commence on New Year's Day and will be a daily super duper special offered for 24 hours only.  More details later.  Just hope you get given some dollars for a Christmas Pressie.


If all else fails and you run out of ideas or run out of time, give one of our Punch with Judy GIFT VOUCHERS.  I can send them out right up to midnight on Christmas Eve!



I'm expecting some little chicks to be hatched today or tomorrow, fingers crossed!

Happy Sewing,
Your friend,




Another good idea as a Christmas Gift for the family to give her!  Think about it.  Excellent value and you could all chip in.



What a great idea as a Christmas Present!  I will also be announcing two new ones shortly with details, but a little sneak preview is that one is a Mystery Quilt using the Westalee Design Rulers.  Expressions of interest being accepted now.  This one is a Mystery Quilt not a tutorial type of class, though help is offered and we'll have a Yahoo Chat Group.  Should be interesting!




Lots of new products in our What's New Section so check it out regularly. 


Don't forget to check out our Specials and our Christmas Specials. 


In this section we have wonderful FREE Projects for you. To coincide with the release of Clover's New Flower Frill Templates which should be here by the end of December, I have some wonderful projects using them added to this section for you.  Pre-delivery orders being taken now.
