Hi Helen, I am now one of your google friends! :-)
I love stitcheries, they have overtaken my love of quilting. -and I have not yet made a tree skirt, so here's hoping. fingers crossed. Hugs from Sandy.


Hi Helen. Thought I may as well be in it again! I think I am a follower now as it is a bit different to blogger.

Love the design - The curved ends with the sleigh and santa! Very nice!

Hi Helen
What a lovely Christmas runner. I just wish I had a blog to be able to go into the draw!!!
Love your patterns and would very much like to win one


OH what a beautiful pattern and how wonderful that I've been hoping to make table runners for friends for this Christmas.

I only wish I had learned how to get my own blog up and running by now to be in the daily drawing for more but alas, I still have not gone any further than to get a blogger id.

I left a comment on my blog:


Would love a chance to win a copy...I love redwork...



Oh too cute. I'd to make it for DD#2 who is newly married. Thanks.


OMG I would LOVE to win your redwork table runner. TOO CUTE!!! It would be a must make project and would NOT end up in my UFO bin. Love your Twas the Night Before Christmas pattern too. I'm a follow of your blog but I don't see my picture as a Google follower. Blogging is still foreign to me in many hope I've done it right. Love you Australian designers. Your stitchery patterns are wonderful but not many are to be found in the US quilt shops. It makes me sad!!! Thanks for the chance to win one of your designs. If I win I will be on top of the world!!!!


Hi Helen, I think I would have time to finish the "round the Block" And complete this before Christmas!!! Gorgeous pattern.


This is a wonderful pattern. I love Santa and Christmas and would love to add this to my decorating. Take care and God bless, Cory

rachelle jones

Wow how beautiful Helen! Merry Christmas to you too.

Robyn Brown

I've been following you for a LOOOONG time now. Thanks for a chance to win.


wow first time here......
wow what a bieutifull paterns.......

We don't have a santa in the netherlands but you are a good replacement to do a give away like this...

succes to everyone.......


Helen, The table runner is delightful. What a perfect way to add some holiday eye candy to a room. We are in the middle of doing a little remodeling in the upstairs but my family room downstairs is being kept in order so I have a place to maintain some measure of sanity while the house is torn to pieces upstairs. I have a table that is in true need of a holiday topper so I am really keeping my fingers crossed on this one. Thanks so much for the chance. I'm so sorry I don't have a blog. I do have a Google profile set up from when I started to get my blog going but life has kept getting in the way of activating it. After the remodel, and now that I have my new computer (after 10 years on the older one), I will get one going. Then I will be able to blog about all the wonderful treasures and giveaways I see on my favorite, 'must visit daily' blogs. Thanks again for your fun giveaways and generosity. Hugs... Oh, and Good Luck Everyone!!!

Laura M

Great table runner, Helen! Thanks for the chance to win the pattern!

Myself and 3 other friends made "Twas the night" as our group project this year. Mine and 1 other is finished and I believe the other 2 are not far behind. I'm hoping to take photos of them all when we meet in a couple of weeks, so will send a pic. Having said that, I'm sure we would all be up for making the table runner as well!!

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
