My lovely customers.(friends)_

Had a lovely visit from my 2 best friend 'bloggers'. On Tuesday granny loz and her friends stayed awhile!! Yesterday Kris, 2 daughters and grand baby dropped by. So nice to see DDno.2 home from the US and of course DDno.1 and baby.

Granny loz told me to show you all, the Valdani Threads. They are gorgeous! Just as I was getting that photo, a delivery arrived with the new 'Daisy Chain' fabrics by Amy Butler. Only 6 so far to show you. So thought I would show these off too!

Am doing a spot of sewing, trying to finish a yo-yo tea cosy! I am soooo good at starting projects but finishing!!! Also am doing the first block of 'Butterfly Garden' BOM. Show you that when completed. (block 1 that is).

This blogging really get one in!!! I want to just keep going and do no work!

Til' next time, Jane

I do like Mondays!

Mondays are my 'day off'. Generally full with 'stuff' eg. visiting my Dad, work appointments, banking, housework inc. washing, drying and folding (I don't iron much now) and the boring food shopping. Not much left for a movie or a bit of a sew? DDno.3 usually wants to do 'something', seeing she is home Mondays too. This week I said ..... what will happen will happen .. I don't care. So I did the compulsary washing and drying and headed off to the hairdresser! That was my day. (besides some computer work... which was 'supposed' to be quick!) It was a terrible day, weather-wise. Windy, hail and cold. So I enjoyed my 'flash' of a day, which is NEVER long enough.

'Gathering in the Hills' with Helen Stubbings

Here is the quilt, Helen will be teaching @ our Gathering. It looks so pretty using the 'Posh' range of fabrics. Her colourque technique is the centre Medallion block. It is being quilted now and should be in store on show very soon. Book now to join us.

We have just received all the gorgeous fabrics 'Sweet Escape' for the Block of the Month, 'Neenies Garden'. Have started cutting ready to send out. The colours are the same as the photo.

Thought I would show you my Amy Butler display. Her book 'Midwest Modern' and fabrics. (and quilt kit, 'Lollipop Lipstick').
Till next time, Jane

New fabrics

Thought I would show you some new fabrics. 'Farmers Market' by Michael Miller is so pretty. Haven't made anything but have ideas!! BUT we have a new 'Funky Teens' quilt kit using the Alexander Henry range in orange, black, yellow, blue and green.

A re-arrange I said. I wasn't expecting to do such a change! My DD suggested we move the counter.. it all then went pear shaped! No I guess not exactly 'pear shaped' but you know, you move one thing so another needs moving and so on... but I love the outcome!!!
