Merry Christmas everyone

 just a few photos of life here this week. These are out of focus but it is hard to take a good shot at 140km per hour and 3 camels sitting in the back of a ute!

 I was on the truck route with Richard  and saw this amazing sight in the distance. I don't think I will ever tire of this
 a little different to our truck stops in Aus

 How gorgeous is this??


 Its a white Christmas here today. Very foggy, this is the tip of our hotel from our street.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a happy holiday season. Be safe and enjoy xx

Hope you had a lovely Christmas Day. It sounds like you are having a wonderful time. Had a laugh about the camels in the ute and the desert photo is stunning.

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!
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…
