Clothes Plasters and more!

How fantastic are these?  They’re the latest item to go into the Haberdashery section of our online shop, and I’m just so excited about them I wanted to share!  Designed by children’s illustrator Jennie Maizels, they’re easily the nicest iron-on patches I’ve ever seen and I’m so glad we were able to stock them.

…did I mention our online shop is now live?  It is!  We aren’t quite in premises yet, and there are still a few things left to be added to the online shop – some gorgeous fat quarter bundles are next on the list – but all our current range of fabrics are available already, so why not go and have a look?

Yarr! Did you know that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day? Whatever will they think of next…

We did hope to have an update in the shop a little sooner than this, but the past fortnight has been a SERIOUS crash course in product photography. With any luck there will be a treasure-chest of lovely things available soon, such as these little tidbits shown here – perfect quilting fabrics for any pirate’s cabin.

What to do when new stock arrives

The stock has started arriving and we have been sorting and cutting like mad, but you have to have a little time for fun too you know…

“Madrona Road” from Michael Miller fabrics is a collection that stole our hearts as soon as we saw it. The range has some super picture prints and some lovely small prints that will work beautifully in a quilt.

There is one of the fabrics that stands out though, the print is so large and striking it called for something a little different, well and I *needed* a little something to wear to a very special party too…the fabric is called Charcoal Morning Glory and is very lovely

So here it is, a lovely top that was simple to make but lovely to wear…
