Its always about the fabric!

'The Adelaide Collection' has arrived. We have the full range by Adelaide's own Michele Hill which has been inspired by William Morris. Michele's new book is due to arrive next month. So many fabrics have come in lately..too many to show (bore) you.. I'll just mention a few by name. This one (below) is 'Punctuation' by American Jane. We have some 'Pure' by Sweetwater.. blue and brown. Also 'Bliss', 'Lizzie', 'Happy', Christmas prints inc. panel for Tree skirt. 'Little Pink Stars'.. these are gorgeous repros.
And a lovely range of Solids.

Lots of preparations here @ the Apple shed. Getting ready for the Adelaide Craft and Quilt Show next week. There's always that big question of what to take??

My DD1 gets married in 4 weeks, so there is that sort of preparations too. Thank goodness, she is a good organiser (and has the time) and doing it all. I'm struggling with a dress @ the moment. Thought it was going to be easy but really its not. There is that mauve 'Mother of the Bride' outfit I'm just not prepared to wear!!
Anyhow, I plod on.
cheers Jane *
