Safe flight to my Spoonie

One of my sisters is off on a whirl wind trip of Europe.

Hope it's the trip of a life time, Chicken Little!

A little more from INSTAGRAM

Instagram madness continues for me. I've always loved photography - both looking at images and taking them myself and this has just sparked my interest even more!

I spend a lot of time on foot or on a train because I don't drive, so I find myself always looking for things to snap.

And I've realised I am pretty obsessed with the sky.

I really recommend this APP for any body with an iPhone.
It's fun to share what we see.

Machine Quilting with Deb Louie

The past few days have been a bit of a blur with the whir of machines and handy hints.
"Slow hands"
"Frame it up"
"Count the stitches"

We've had Deb Louie with us teaching machine quilting and machine applique. This woman is a fountain of knowledge - it's quite amazing. Anything you want to know about machine quilting, she knows it! And even more amazing, she knows almost everything about ANY machine...I struggle with just the features on our Pfaff machines.

They've been fun filled days with lots of chatter and laughter. I was so impressed by how everybody took to the techniques - they were all such good students!

But of course not everything goes to plan.
Our dishwasher broke... which meant washing dishes for 12 students in the sink (URGH) and as anybody who has been to the shop will know: our kitchen here is TINY! Some very interesting balancing acts going on with cups on bowls, and bowls on plates!

Deb will hopefully be back again next year to teach this workshop for any who missed out!

Breaking the silence

Where have I been?
I'm not exactly sure, to be honest... sorry!
The new Storybook organic cotton fabrics are in and they are absolutely beautiful. The colours are just divine - with both a boy story and a girls story they are perfect for new baby projects!

I am currently quilting this paneled one for a quick cot size quilt!

We've also got new trims and ribbons in... and they are to die for.

From a range of designers.

Including Kaffe Fassett.

And Sue Spargo.
Pop in store today to see what else is new!
