Houston

We're back in one piece after our whirl wind trip. It's been a busy few weeks so I am finally getting to a blog post!

 Our booth went from this...


To this...

Me chatting to Becky Goldsmith!

The Circle Game Pattern.

Steam Punk and Carnival Patterns.


Georgetown on my Mind Pattern.
The Aussie's were out in force.
The girls from the Quilted Crow were there with a beautiful booth.



Same with Sue Daily from Patchwork with Busy Fingers.



One of the things I love most about visiting Market is getting a chance to catch up with my dear friends Sue Spargo and Wendy Morris. They had the fantastic Cathy and Kelly with them. We shared lots of meals and really got a chance to catch up!

Sue's Booth was beautiful, with so much to look at (I placed a huge order. We love unpacking the fantastic wools, threads and velvets. Lots of ooo-ing and ahh-ing).




Sue and Wendy have been busy little bees creating a fabric range for Robert Kaufman called Fokeloric Blooms. The section presenting their new range at the Kaufman booth was incredible!








I had an amazing time at the Kaufman Party with the girls. A few wines were had and then it was off to the photo booth!

 Kellie, Wendy and Sue

Collingwood themed feathers!

I can't wait to catch up with them all again.

The Quilt Show at Market is always a highlight. I will post photos soon of some of the quilts that caught my eye!

Happy Stitching,
Jen

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

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…

A little eye candy

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!
