Christmas Middle Eastern style

The man himself and he was a very busy boy all night

Santas naughty helper, Fatima. She is our breakfast hostess

Commercialism at its best. These guys were selling goods at the Christmas market

Polar bears and snow made from wadding/batting

This photo is my favourite. I know it's not very clear but in the middle of all the Christmas cheer these two poor emirate gents were trying to have a quiet coffee!! The cute gingerbread house in the background
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all
Here's hoping 2014 is a good year for all of us

I was so surprised to see that you was in Oman. I'm living in Muscat, Oman and we have a very nice quilt group here.
I hope that you had a wonderful time.

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...

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…
