I do have 3 daughters

Mitali has been busy making some quilts from a couple of the Kaffe Fassett books. I just love the second one "Jiggery Pokery"

Karen....our gadget girl....has made the mid west modern pillow in silks. We had a great Sunday sew along and Michelle gave the girls some tips on perfecting this cushion. Tina provided the lunch which was amazing, Louise bought some yummy ice cream and we all had a glass of bubbles and a really nice day.

This is baby Nancy, the guide dog puppy who comes in with her mummy Di. Boy has she grown!
Di has designed a great range of Christmas stitchery's which we will have instore and on the website soon.
and this is for Amanda!! I do have 3 daughters!! Everyone knows Meg and Lucy my number 1 and 3 daughters who work in the store but no one knows my number 2 daughter Abby. Well here she is with her gorgeous friend Eli. The girls were having a shopping day ( Abby's favourite past time) and called in for lunch.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

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.

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

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


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?!”
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…
