Just when you all thought I was gone for good....

I'm back!!!  I can't believe that it has been more than three months since I posted a message on this blog - time just flies by, doesn't it?  There are no real excuses for staying away so long, only my crazy life.  I'll make an effort to bring any of you who are still bothering to check in up to date with all that's been happening  - 2008 is turning out to be a really big amazing year in the NicQuiltz world.  Here's a little taste of some of the excitement...

I think I've posted a picture of my quilt (Touchstones #2 - Gingko Garden) before.  You may notice something new about it, though - a lovely ribbon from the 2008 Sydney Quilt Show.  I was thoroughly gobsmacked to be awarded the Down Under Quilts special prize for Best Use of Colour - wow, what a thrill!!!

I won't bore you with a long and tedious post listing all of my happenings - I'll break it down into smaller chunks and tease you with a little bit at a time.  Make sure you check back again soon!

Cheers,
Nic
