Quote of the Week: My soul if fed with needle and thread. My body is filled with chocolate . . .

Yes, it has been some time since our last posting; just over two weeks. I think I promised some more photos of our Autumn Gathering "tomorrow" - that seems like so long ago . . . . . . time really does get away doesn't it.

My youngest daughter Jess was our "Paparazzi Queen" on the day, so here are a couple more photo's to share with you . . .

Deirdre is currently away on holidays, swanning around Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales for the next fortnight with her husband Phil - having a wonderful and well earned break. My turn comes in the June school holidays - YIPEE!!

We are so blessed to have such good friends . . . whilst Deirdre is away, our "Roadies" insist on coming in and helping me out so I can keep up with all that needs to be done, including the long-arming of the quilts out the back on 'Big Mal'. A huge thankyou to Ange, Michelle, Kali and Sally for their tremendous help and friendship.

I'm madly getting ready for our next mail out of the "Woollen Pincushion Club" which goes in the post at the end of the month. There are six in the series and we are up to Number Four. I asked everyone last week who is in the Club to send in some photos of their completed pincushions so as soon as they start arriving, I'll be sure to pop them on for you all to see.

In the meantime, here is a photo of the samples that I made - the one missing in action is the Strawberry Pincushion - it may make a grand appearance next time!!

If anyone is interested in joining the Woollen Pincushion Club, the next Group will be starting in Mid June. The cost is $28.60 each month for six months. It includes all the 'ingredients', pattern and postage.

Deirdre's first mailout of her Block of the Month went out last week. It is called "Autumn Pathways" . . . . absolutely gorgeous . . . a combination of warm rich colours of the felted wool on a cotton background. Here is a photo of the centre blocks just to tempt you . . . . what do you think? We'd love to hear from you.

Phone us at the shop (03) 6234 8338 or email us if you are interested in either of them and we will send out the relevant details to you.

Must be off - lots to do . . .

Until next time.
