a weekend away

Last weekend was one of our Lancefield retreats. I love going to Lancefield - it's so nice to put your feet up, not have to work, do dishes, make the bed, worry about what's for dinner and on top of all that have a whole weekend dedicated to sewing.

It was such a productive weekend with so many projects coming together so quickly.
Nic's elephant quilt was together in next to no time!

Mindy was working on a beautiful Fans quilt which went from this...

To this in record time.

Rae was working on my Broken Glass pattern.

Loving all the red in it!
And Jen R was putting together a bright version of my Marianne pattern.

As the day rolls on and you get lost in your project and conversation, the lovely staff come and let you know that your meal is ready and the food is just heaven.

But of course this weekend was about sewing!

Helen was embellishing one of my favourite fabrics - the Megu Printed linen.

Of course with sewing weekends there's always a little show and tell.. and with show and tell, comes paparazzi!

Karen has been busy with my Circle Game blocks but doing them in soft and gentle fabrics producing a quilt that is totally to die for.

I have a lot more photos from this weekend but might have them for another day otherwise it might be quilt photo overload and the keyboard can't handle the drool!.

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
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.

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…
