Winter sun

Today I took a break from stitching and went for a walk around Wilson's Botanic Park as it was such a beautiful winters day. The air was crisp but the sun was gorgeous. I took my camera and had a peaceful stroll around the lakes. The mushrooms were a plenty and the camellias were in bloom. It was good for the soul. Then it was time to head back home to do some more stitching. Maria and I are busy making samples for Xmas in July. The school holidays are fast approaching which means busy times are ahead.

Tilda Christmas

As promised here is another project from the Tilda Christmas Book. Everything in the book is sooo cute, the decision is what to make!! A couple of new ranges have arrived and plans are under way to make a couple of projects to show off these fantastic fabrics.
If you like crinolines we have a new cushion in the shop on display and a new quilt that we have just started work on. As they say watch this space.

Pretty in Pink

Maria has finished her heart from the designer"Don't look now". It will now go to the framers for stretching on a canvas. It looks fantastic. Maria has blanket stitched the appliques and embroidered the smaller flowers.

Tilda Xmas

Its been awhile since I posted on the blog, but life has been so busy. We have been busy stitching in amongst all the other things that have been happening. As you know Maria went over to Ireland, the school holidays flew by and before you know it a month has flown by.

Over the last week I made a couple of items from the Tilda Xmas book. Attached is a photo of one of the items. I preview some more over the coming weeks.

Our range of Tilda fabrics and books arrived today. Over the next few days you will see them on the shelf, I hope you will be as excited about the range as we were. Maria is in Ireland at the moment and won't be back for a couple of weeks. The holidays flew by once again and the new samples produced over the holidays will be on display once they have been quilted.

Flower Faeries

This week we received a shipment of fabric and one of the pieces depicted the flower faeries. The fabric has glitter on the wings and is just irresistible for any little girl. I zipped up a little throw just to show you one way of using the fabric. My quilt has also been completed (a variation of the Pieces of the past quilt by Crabapple Hill) and the table runner also made using the pattern is ready for the quilter. I am thrilled with the end result.
