NEW online

We have a new look and feel to our website and also new fabrics.
Check out all the new LIBERTY OF LONDON online now HERE.

There's also new plain voile's which work perfectly with the Liberty so check them out HERE.

I'll be working hard to get new fabrics on all the time so keep an eye on the website to see what's new!

More about our clubs

I know I have told you and of course I only have the best things to say about them so I thought I might share a few links and show you what other people are saying about the new clubs that we've started here at Amitie!

Kerry has put a post up about her first mail out. She also shows the block she made (it's so beautiful. Well done, Kerry).

This pic was taken by Kerry and featured on her blog.
Check it out HERE.

Lovely local blogger Cathy also posted. Cathy is signed up for both the Stash and Liberty club.

Photo taken by Cathy.
Check out her post HERE.

And last but not least take a look at Lynne's blog.
Lynne has been posting not only about our Stash and Liberty  but also about The Gypsy Wife BOM. Lynne has been very creative and gives our BOM her own flare. It's great to see the comparison. It just shows what can be done!
Take a look at Lynne's work on Month 5 HERE

Thank you to all who have supported these new clubs and our BOMs and a very big thank you to Kerry, Cathy and Lynne.

Stash Club Block

Here it is.

My block.

Help me

OK, I will admit it. I've been struggling. I don't have the amazing talent that my mother has of mixing wildly eclectic fabrics and making them look better than good. Putting my first Stash Club block together has been interesting. Lots of trial and error. Cutting out, stitching, unpicking. Scratching my head, making more tea then scratching my head again.
I have resisted the urge of adding any fabrics from my personal stash so far but as I creep towards the end it's getting harder and harder.
I think I am almost there but who knows. I am struggling to see the big picture of the finished block. Once I get to that final stitch and look at it, I might think YUCK! But this will be it... I can't unpick anymore and to be honest, I miss my scrappy squares.

It's can't just be me who sometimes hits these sorts of bumps in the sewing road?!
