Quote of the Week:
A quilt is a treasure which follows its owner everywhere . . .
Today sees us freezing our little toes off here in Hobart - a beautiful sunny day but oh, so cold!! And there's more to come - of the cold I mean - and snow !! brrrrr . . .
One of our favourite customers came in on Friday with the quilt pictured above, made from civil war fabrics - it is absolutely gorgeous. Veronica is known for loving the 1930s fabrics but seeing as this one was for her husband she went with the civil war instead.
Her five year old daughter has the biggest fabric stash you have ever seen for someone under the age of ten! Each time Veronica comes into the shop, her little one chooses her own half a dozen or so fabrics and off she goes, quite chuffed with herself! It's great to see that someone so young can get so much pleasure from such beautiful fabrics. We will be sure to post a photo of her first patchwork attempt . . .
Our Christmas Gathering is now only six weeks away and panic is starting to kick in! Have we got everything organised? Catering? Projects? Pressies? I'm sure we've covered it all but you know how it is when you just want it to go off without a hitch . . . everyone is getting really excited and we know that Anni and Natalie are working on their projects at the moment - once all the projects are complete we'll post some photos. Not long now . . .
Until next time.
