Did you hear my gasp all the way in Australia? I saw this magazine in the craft supply store and totally dismissed it without even a second glance. Now I have to go back and get it... I just LOOOOOVE that pear tree! WOW! You've outdone yourself, yet again! Thanks for sharing...and for reminding me it's not good to judge a book by its cover!


I can't wait to go pick it up! That design is adorable!


congrats just keep going bigger and better........look out USA

Thanks for letting us know Anni...I have your Xmas story book but I love the advent calender you have done here I will definately be getting this issue.


I'll have to go pick up a copy. Your project is deightful!


Hi Annie
I just picked up this magazine yesterday. I have already picked out fabrics and I can't wait to get started on your design. Not only did it make it to the USA...but here in Canada too.

Hey Annie! What a cute advent calendar, although your birdie on top looks like he's been into the 'Christmas Cheer'! Tee! Hee! Hee! I also love the Santa on the cover of the book - he looks like a cross between Santa and one of the elves! Don't think I'm ready to think about Christmas just yet - still lots of birthdays to cross off the list before I start the Christmas rounds - GROAN!! Happy stitching! Bear Hugs!

Hey Annie, Congrats on another great Aussie design. I love that mag and try to get it when it comes out here in Aus. It always has lots of great projects in it.Well done again.


I just love your project. I already have your Christmas book but have to make this also. Will you be releasing a pattern here in Aus - I may not be able to get a copy of the magazine from where I live. regards Sue-Anne

Wendy Walters

I love your project. Do you have a fabric kit for the advent calender? I love the colours you have chosen.
Thanks, Wendy.

Hi Annie,
Do you know if anyone stocks this mag in Tassie or where I can order it from?


Hi Anni, just LOVE this project, also have your Christmas book, but am hoping and hoping I can get a copy of the magazine here in Armidale. Would also love a kit if you are going to have them!
Best wishes, Meredith


I love your project! I got this magazine last week and have already made one of the projects from it! I have also already copied your patterns and they are ready to be transfered to my fabric!

I know a celebrity!!!!!

Another beauty Anni...congratulations on being in Better Homes & Gardens USA ...
I wonder where your beautiful work will take you next...Hope this finds you all in Bathurst surviving the chill & keeping warm....
warm wishes jojo


I'm off to find that magazine. Love your little project.

Debbie Cameron

I found this magazine last night but when I saw the pattern, I thought to myself "I wonder if this pattern is already in the 'A Christmas Story' book that I own", so I put the magazine back. (nope) Now I have to go back and buy the magazine. It will make a wonderfule gift for my quilt group's Christmas gift swap.


Hi Anni
I am on holidays and am in New York today and passed a newsagent and bought the magazine. Yours is by far the nicest project in it. I was excited to see it. I will be bringing it back to Australia with me.


I Think it's lovely! Congratulations.

Delwyn Ellis

Hi Anni - This very project has broght me to your website! I will return again. Just wondering tho, do you stock the hanger for this project? Or, can you point me (and others) toward the supplier? (Or did I miss this information in the article or on your site?) Thanks! Amy, South Lyon, Michigan USA


Oh! What a beautiful Christmas quilt stitchery! I think it is the most delightful design I have ever seen! Too bad I missed the issue... I will have to see if I can get my hands on one :o) I think your blog is wonderful and I am so excited to have discovered you!
