Introducing: The Rowan Tree + Giveaway

Before I tell you about the Rowan Tree,
this is the beautiful house we stayed in at Twizel.
It's new and fresh and lovely and for sale here!

Remember Twizel is where we went for our Quake-break!
It was just so awesome.
The mountain views were inspiring 
honestly, it made me feel better just to look at them.
(This is lake Tekapo actually which is just up the road)
The Rowan Tree is the shop of Shiree Johnson
and honestly (she's not paying me to say this!!)
it's one of the best quilting shops around.
She has an amazing range
and a fantastic eye for fabrics.
I have to confess quite a bit of fabric
jumped into Annie's stroller while I was there.
I wholeheartedly recommend calling by Shiree
if you are going to be anywhere near Twizel
ring/email first to check she's there,
or visit her website
or like her on facebook.

Now for the giveaway,
I have a Charm Pack of La Petite Ecole to giveaway,
