Gosh, maybe I will have to work on the idea of sending a second original Flat Nat around the blog world because so many would love a visit one day.
I especially love the idea of sending your Flat Nat's off with a travel journal to record her journey, how much fun would that be to read on her return? It is an idea many of you have emailed me about and I think it is fabulous.
Flat Natty Fabulous actually.
To the two random winners because if I had to pick two myself I simply couldn't.
Sandra Port Coquitlam B.C.....Hi, I have been following your blog since your baby was born and have purchased a lot of your stitcheries from Quiltopia in Maple Ridge B.C. I just love them and now can pick your designs out from the rest. Keep designing
andMay Britt....I love Flat Nat and would love to give her a journey through the Norwegian country. She could come with me to different sewing parties and quiltshops, and I guess she could write "home" and tell about her experiences :)
Congratulations to you both an email will be in your inbox shortly so I can get your postal address. Thank you to every one who took a moment out of their day to pop a comment on the post so we can all have some fun.

This week in the studio.....
I have been playing around with a few ideas this week and having a little fun with different elements to my designs.
Lately I have been stitching a lot of things I can't show you fully *sigh* and to be truthful patience has never really been my thing.
It is making me crazy actually.
I have even started talking in short sentences.
Well, you'll have to trust me - some wise person said once that good things come to those who wait - it must be true. He was talking to me, right?
So this is what is ruffling me lately (in a good way).
Then I started making a few little bag tags, and couldn't stop at one. It's not surprising, I often get carried away in the creative moment.
On the crafting front, I also brought a holder for art paper at Ikea. I said at the time it was for Isabelle - that was a fib. I really wanted it for myself.
I have to tell you my funny story about my Ikea visit, it goes like this...
I was so excited I had actually made it to Melbourne and found the store. I had 40mins spare to shop to my Ikea loving heart out. Not a long time in Ikea, I tell you. (it could take that long to find the exit).
Truth is, I was so lolly shop ikea excited I was there, that I forgot to remember where I parked my car.
I got all hot and bothered, there were almost tears.
About 10 minutes later I realised there was more than one exit to the car park.
I had an ikea moment.
Ten minutes can feel like an eternity.
