Quote of the Week:
Friends are threads of gold in the quilt of life . . .
Well here we are again, Monday morning already, and as promised, I haven't opened the chocolate - it is sitting there waiting for me to finish this post before I break it open. Chocolate is a wonderful thing isn't it?

What a busy week we have had here at Crow Central. There has been lots of show and tell from our lovely customers recently. Remember the hexagon quilt that Sally made? Well here it is, all quilted with the binding on. Isn't it a masterpiece? We quilted it for her here at the shop - she wanted a Baptist Fan design and this proved to be a good choice. What do you think?

Sue E came in with her beautiful woollen wall hanging from an American designer. The pattern title is 'Home and Harvest'. She has been coming into our shop for some time now, purchasing our lovely 100% felted wool over the last few months and this is the end result.

We just love working with the wool and it is good to see other people enjoying it as well. It is so easy to work with, it doesn't fray, you don't need to fuse it on to the background before stitching, you just staple it on and stitch away!! Deirdre's thumbs are always 'discoloured' from all of the hand dyeing and if anyone didn't know her properly, they would think she never washed!! But it is certainly worth it, just take a look at these gorgeous colours . . .

Sorry that the photo's are a little dark, but it gives you an idea of the 'gorgeousness'!!

We have both completed our projects for our upcoming 'Christmas Gathering' which is to be held on September 20th and we are pretty happy with them. The day is approaching fast so we need to be organised in advance. The week after the Gathering will see us playing host to a group of ladies from New South Wales who are coming down for a week of sewing and fun with us here in the shop. We are really excited and by the sound of it, from the last email we received, they too, can't wait! There are lots of quilts here that they can choose to make, so we're sure they will have a ball.

This week sees us getting ready to send out our monthly Woollen Pincushion Club and Deirdre's 'Autumn Pathways Block of the Month, so it is going to be very busy.

The chocolate is still sitting here in its wrapper so I think it is time that I gave it some air - after all, it is after 10am . . . . . . have a great week.

Until next time,

Leonie and Deirdre - The Quilted Crow

I'm currently on a family plan. I'm interested in the iPhone 3G now because Apple introduced the iPhone 3GS and the original iPhone 3G is only $99 now. How much does it cost per month with unlimited data and text messaging? I'm on a family plan. Oh! and I'm currently not eligable for an upgrade, but can I just sign up for another 2 years and get the iPhone 3G for the $99?

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
