winners... yes, plural!

Thank you to everybody who played along in what I think is my first blog giveaway.
I loved reading all the comments so much. Got some great ideas and also a few laughs!
I got the Amitie Girl herself to randomly pick a winner out of the hat so here it is...

Congratulations FRENCHIE who said: Oragnisation is key. My girlfriends and I organise a monthly session dedicated to a nice homemade lunch and an afternoon of all types of sewing. We call it Crafternoon!

I loved this giveaway so much that I have decided to giveaway a SECOND PRIZE!
I have a Jelly Roll for this prize from the same range as fat 1/4 bundle. It's my favorite comment that will win this prize so...
Congratulations to KAREN WILSON who wrote: I think my survival tactic is: don't do the housework!! I only do things that need doing, hence we have a walk-in-robe that you can't walk in because there are clean clothes all over the floor and stuff like that. Means I'm a lot more sane!

We call that a Floordrobe in my house Karen!
Frenchie and Karen please e-mail us at with your address so we can get your prizes to you.

Thanks again to everybody who played a long. This might have been the first giveaway but it certainly won't be the last!

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

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!
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.

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…
