pinch and a punch


Lucky Sophie. Her grandma Sandra whipped this up for her.

Lucky Lucy. Grandma Barb made this. I have previously popped this on the blog but Lucy called in to show us how gorgeous she looks in her dress.

Thank you to all who made sale day a success. We had a little breather in the middle of the day and I remembered to get the camera!!! To the lunch lady Amanda, morning tea deliverers Jill and Gina, a huge thank you.

I'm not quite sure why I was so lucky but I wanted to just say 'Thankyou!'

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!

THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS AND DOGS…

Well, no. Not really! It’s more the truth about Amitie.

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!)

So why now? Why this post? We keep hearing things on the quilty grapevine. Things we mostly laugh at amongst ourselves because they’re so silly. But, recently there’s been a few that have made me think that some of these rumours could be a little damaging to our little fabric store so I using this platform to set the record straight.

Here are the three biggies answered straight from the horse’s mouth (neigh!)!
“I heard you’re closing?!”
NEGATIVE!
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. We will be moving ag…
