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
This vintage inspired range by Anna Griffin is just stunning, I have designed a simple quilt to show case the fabrics – pre-cut kits will be $120, ready to sew. Quilt will measure 60” x 74”, if anyone is interested then contact me. These fabrics will also make gorgeous children’s clothing, Jayne purchased the fabric one day had had this beautiful little girls dress made the next day.

We have just had the most amazing 3 days together, all these ladies have travelled to Nundle to reminisce and be reunited with each other after 12 months since they joined me last year on our tour of The USA. We spent the weekend chatting, sewing, drinking and eating. Very spoilt with Nicole cooking all our meals for us.
Thanks everyone for a fabulous weekend,
Can't wait for our next get together
Today at the post office I collected a box wrapped in brown paper all the way from Switzerland.
Christin has sent all these very tempting gifts for The 2013 Secret Santa Christmas Swap, how lucky am I, but now I need to be strong and not open my main gift until Christmas Day.
If you love Zinnia's then you are going to love this range of fabrics - Allison has coordinated this range like a bouquet of flowers, using large flowers, dainty blooms and some greenery to make it all stand out. So whether you sew dresses, quilts or home decor your project is sure to look amazing
Priced at $20 per metre
Today I travelled to Finders Keepers giftware and fabric in Muswellbrook to teach a Christmas workshop To around 40 women. What a fun and productive day everyone had. All the ladies made these Chrissy balls, as well as started the stitchery on a star decoration I designed especially for the day
Thanks Susan and Karen for hosting the day, I look forward to returning in the new year.
