Quote of the Week:
To be able to look back upon your past life with satisfaction, is to live twice . . .
Our Autumn Gathering is now less than two weeks away and we have all of the projects here in the shop on display.

They are all fabulous and we're sure that there will be something for everyone. We are just about fully booked so if you are thinking of coming along, you'd better not leave it too long - next Wednesday 16th April is our cut-off date for taking bookings.
I've popped some photo's down here for you all to see - you will receive a pattern for each of the projects that are photographed in your 'goody bag' along with some other treats from us.

The above photograph are Lynette Anderson's projects - "Hilltop Cottage Cushion" in two different colourways, and "Hilltop Cottage Punchneedle Purse" also in two different colourways. You will receive an iron-on transfer in your goody bag, compliments of The Quilted Crow for the cushion stitchery design.

This photo is of Kerrie Gillespie's projects, "Freshcut Flowers" two cushions with a gorgeous stitchery design on them, "Tilly, Milly & Molly", three little dollies linking arms and a fantastic bag made from black felted wool and adorned with some great stitchery and ric rac - it may be a bit hard to see the detail in this photo, so I apologise, but trust me, they are truly fantastic!

Who could go past Deirdre's project "Dolly Doorstop" a delightful angel with felted wool applique flowers, holding her own little birdy in her arms. As well as this, Deirdre has also made an apron called "Cherry Pie" with gorgeous stitchery on the pockets.

These three projects are mine and are called "Favourite Things from The Quilted Crow". A large hand pieced hexagon shaped cushion, small sawtooth star quilt and a drawstring bag with churn dash blocks on point - the three items come as one kit . . "Brown paper packages tied up with string . . these are a few of my favourite things . . . ".

My other project is a wallhanging but could be made into a large quilt if you would like.

Hope you all like the projects - for those of you who aren't able to attend, the patterns will be available by the end of April to purchase in the shop.
Must be off to do some more chores . . . never a dull moment here at Crow Central!
Until next time,
Leonie & Deirdre
The Quilted Crow
