    1. Hi Nicola, I have mailed you...no problem with this particular pattern.

  2. Hi Sue,
    I love your work. In you picture at the top would I be able to get the patterns for the two on the right side of the picture? They are gorgeous.


  3. Hi Sue,

    I love your work. In your image at the top of the page, would I be able to get the patterns of the two on the right? The star and the circle in the hex. They are gorgeous. Thanks


  4. A lovely new motif, I especially like it with the filler. I think I'm going to have to learn how to join as you go.
    It looks quite complicated but maybe it looks worse than what it is.
    You always come up with such lovely ideas.
