We never write on this blog. We want to but it’s always at the bottom of the very long to do list and it gets bumped. Bumped to the next day, next week (maybe even next year going by the last post… eeek!)
Never been on the cards.
How this started I do not know. Maybe because the building we are housed in sold, which is the truth but the little rumour that followed is just gossip.
NEGATIVE! We have so much fabric we can hardly fit it all. It’s piled up on every flat surface, and (like always) it’s GORGEOUS!! We are also making a really big effort to load all new fabrics onto our website!! (http://www.amitie.com.au/shop/NEW--Fabrics.htm)
A. BIG. FAT. NEGATIVE. We are on good terms. Great terms! and, we always have been.
This one cuts a little deep. It feels personal and it could not be further from the truth.
There was never an argument, or an issue. I wanted to try something new, and I did which lead me to studying and in turn, lead me back here. My mum greeted me with open arms because that’s what family does and the rest is very drama-free history!
3 big NEGATIVES on 3 big rumours. Makes you realise, you shouldn’t believe everything you hear.
Thanks for reading!
I will try and post on here more.... promise!!

Well, then the Mystery BOM is for you!
This project is a mix of hand piecing, machine piecing and hand appliqué. Fabrics will be a mix of originals featured in Jen’s quilt and replacement fabric. It will be likeness for likeness (i.e. red check for red check) and we will do our best to make sure it all works as well as it does in Jen’s original quilt.
Please return signed form via e-mail or post and we will get you started!
