How lucky was I this year with all these delightful gifts I received from Christin from Switzerland, she certainly spoilt me, the Christmas tree tin was filled with shortbread, there was also some gingerbread, the 2 magazines are great and my main gift of the journal cover and small sachet are just gorgeous, I love the fabrics, I also received a small Swiss pocket diary and 2 pens. I love collecting pens from my travels as they remind me of the fabulous places I have been when I use them so these 2 will remind me of Christin every time I use them.
Thank you Christin so much for your gifts, I love them all
Happy New Year
I was very spoilt with these gorgeous gifts I received from Fiona in our Christmas swap, Thank you so much I love them all.
Do hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas filled with family friends, love and laughter.
Just arrived in store Button Tree Lane by Anni Downs - wow these are just divine, we'll done Anni.
They look great on my table makeover - my new pink table, just the start of the new look.
Button Tree Lane $20 per metre, these will be available on my new website which will be launched in the New Year. Or you can purchase them by sending me an email or give me a call
The Cottage on the Hill will close tomorrow for a well deserved break over the Christmas period, but don't think I will be taking it easy. I will be very busy giving the shop a make over to go with my new logo and web site - which will be launched in the New Year.
Stay tuned this table that I bought at a auction for $80 will soon be transformed, gosh I love a good make over.
Anyone else out there going to be transforming something old into something new over Chrissy???
Yesterday saw myself and my Tuesday class travel down to Willow Tree to visit Cafe 2339 where Sharon Swain served us a delicious Christmas lunch. What a lovely way to finish off my 24 th year of teaching Tuesday class, a wonderful group of ladies, thanks for another great year.
Well I found time for a little more sewing this afternoon and I managed to finish off my quilt top, my new version of my very old "Flannel Heart Quilt" made using the new Bonsoir Flannels by Faye Burgos, kits for this will be $140 or $150 pre cut ready to sew.
Quilt measures 58" x 81", it should look great quilted.
Brigitte Giblin was in the store today, they were just passing through and called in, she fell in love with the new Amelie fabric range by Anna Griffin and just had to take some home with her.
So nice to sit down for a short while this afternoon and do a little sewing. I am revamping one of my very first projects that was published in an Australian craft magazine back in the 1990's using Bonsoir flannels by Faye Burgos and Woolly flannels by Bonnie Sullivan, the next set of blocks are appliquéd.
Hope fully I have time tomorrow to finish off the quilt and get it off to the quilters. Kits will be on sale in the store very shortly.
Also completed my 2nd set of friendship blocks for La La's Ya Ya's this afternoon, Iam on a roll with them
What's left of our range of Double Chocolat range by 3 Sisters has been reduced to $12 per metre, fat 1/4s down to $3 each and I have reduced the kits for the Double Chocolat pattern from $160 to $96
Let me know if anyone is interested in any of these fabrics
