Happy New Year

We all hope you've recovered from the silly season and are feeling ready to take on the new year.

Here's some photos taken around the store recently.


New Liberty of London is in store!


Louise's Scrappy Trip Along is being quilted - LOVE the colours!


My vintage hexagon quilt is growing... slowly.


A new window display to bring in the new year. This quilt is by Sandra who teachers here on Thursdays.


More of the new seasonal Liberty collection.


Hard days at the desk make easier if there's beautiful fabric to look at.


Beautiful bundle.


Another beauty by Sandra that's now on a lot of people's 'to do' lists.

HAPPY STITCHING

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.

I swear working with acrylic templates makes it quite challenging to go back to temp-plastic! These templates are ensuring my blocks come out correct, every time.
Month 5 brought us North Star. "Woo hoo. Straight lines!" I hear the masses cheer as they open their mail!
I knew it was time to start focusing on other colours other than pink and aqua. I tend to gravitate towards these two colours because they seem to go with everything to me... especially in the Liberty of London f…

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!
