Oooh, I'm so green with envy! Belgium was my favorite country during our 2 week Euro holiday 11 years ago. I always told my hubby I could live there! Which part will you be moving to? We stayed in Antwerp, Ghent and Brugge. :)

Hi Tanya,
Welcome to Europe. Don't forget you have an invitation to come and visit us in the UK whenever you can find the time. Have you seen our new book Layer Cake, Jelly Roll & Charm Quilts? It has two quilts using your Grand Revival fabrics - I told you I would be using them. If you haven't got a copy then email me with your address and we'll get a copy in the post to you. Pam Lintott

I wish you all the best for this new chapter.

Can't wait to see what fabric you are doing next. Darla is the best selling line I have ever stocked. Almost have my quilt done in it.

I can't wait to see what inspiration Belgium brings to your fabric design. As for the last post that I just now read. Oh my goodness....All I can say is Wow. What did that tiny deer have to do with anything she said?
Unpack quick and design some more fabric. I absolutely love everything you design!


Good luck with your big move -can't wait to hear of your new adventures and looking forward to the new fabrics!
