no more pretending

The lack of posts might have made some of you believe I was still in Denver... I guess I was happy pretending I was still away but no, I am back and in full swing.
Life is busy here at Amitie but lucky for me I came home to the most beautiful surprise.




The lovely Louise had me for the Down Under Doll Quilt Swap 2 and I was so happy with what she made me.
I love my Football team, Collingwood - and I love my Collingwood Doll Quilt with the club song embroidered on it!

Thank you Louise.

And let's all remember.


GO PIES!

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

PERFECT!
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

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.

Ha. Yup!

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…
