Playing with Meringue

Firstly - apologies that my new e-book post went out to feeds again this week - I was playing around with my blog layout trying to keep that post up the top for a while which meant republishing - I had no idea it would send out again until it arrived in my inbox tonight. Oops! Working within the constraints of Blogger can make for some unexpected moments.

Okay........onward.

Thank you all so much everyone for the amazing response to Tangle Transformation - I'm beyond thrilled, your support has been amazing!

Last week I was playing with the pattern Meringue for the Square One FB group focus and ended up with this tile.


This was my first time experimenting with Meringue and, of course, I wanted to take it onto a bigger format than the 3.5 square.

Even though the pattern is different, playing with it made me think of the Aquafleur poppy that I drew when that pattern was introduced, so this is kind of along the same theme.


We are heading towards what looks like an amazing warm, sunny week - I cannot wait to get out into my garden. John is in the process of building me a little french door greenhouse (excited!!!) in my new bee garden and I am waiting for it to be finished to do the paving and garden beds around it and just generally soak up all of its glory (I've been wanting a greenhouse for years).

The seasons lambs and calves have all been born, here I am a few weeks ago with the smallest lamb (a couple of days old) and John with the final calf of the season (just born). This girl is my favourite herd cow, Panda - I was so happy that she had an easy birth with a healthy calf, last year we had to have the vet out, her calf had died before birth and we thought we may also lose her, so we were worried for her.

3, 2, 1........blast off!

The free subscriber mini e-book "Three Little Rules" was sent out earlier today (Thursday AEST).


You should have received the "Three Little Rules" mini e-book in your inbox today if you were a confirmed subscriber when I exported the email list to my delivery service this morning (unfortunately I am unable to send to unconfirmed subscriptions as this is considered spam). 

Thanks for your support - I hope you all enjoy it!

If you did miss out by not subscribing by the cut-off or having an incomplete subscription, I'm sorry, but due to the work involved I do not send the free e-books out retrospectively.  I usually average two free e-books per year - the next one will be out in December, 2015 :)

Now - back to work on my new e-book, Tangle Transformation, which will be available for sale very soon :)

Have a wonderful day!

Tangle Transformation - New e-book Cover

I've been buckling down and am actually ahead of schedule - I'm on the final, final edits of my new e-book Tangle Transformation - here's a sneak peek of the cover! I'm excited!


I just need to do another read-through (or 3), check it out on my iPad, put together a quick video preview..........then it's all systems go! Hopefully I'll have it up for sale on the blog this week.

Finishing up Tangle Transformation has slightly delayed the mail out of the free subscriber mini e-book (read the details here), but it will be going out very soon - I promise! - so, if you haven't subscribed yet, you have a little more time to sign up for the email blog feed and be eligible to receive the freebie, but once it goes out, that will be it!

So much to do, so little time :)

Have a great day!

Steps Tangle Pattern - VIDEO

The last few patterns have been pretty easy and this week's one - Steps - is no exception. More a build technique than a pattern, but definitely fun to do :)



If you are viewing this post via email, you may need to visit the website to see the video.

It's all go here at the farm, we've clicked over into Spring and are sowing seeds and getting ready for the prime veggie garden season. We've also had two new arrivals this week - a new lamb and calf.

Here's the new lamb with her mum and dad.

First calf of the season - 6 days old.

If you want to see the calf taking her very first steps, visit our Hoddles Creek Farm Facebook Page.

Have a great weekend!
