Quote of the Week:

May your sorrows be patched and your joys quilted . . .

Ten thousand apologies to those who have diligently been checking our blog . . . the past two weeks have just sped by so fast . . . but anyway, here we are again.

We have been busily working on some new projects in our gorgeous felted wool which Helen from Pattern Press is going to launch for us at Quilt Market in November. It is a new venture for us both and we are hoping that they will be well received.

Helen has also been doing some new designing herself - be sure to pop over to her blog and have a peek - there are some really nice projects there for everyone to enjoy.
Helen has just returned from Jane's Gathering in the Hills where she spent a lovely day with a group of ladies teaching her trademark Colorque technique on a quilt that she designed especially for the day. We saw some photos that Helen took and Jane certainly went to a lot of trouble to make sure every need was catered to. My gosh, you should have seen the food!! Absolutely, beautifully presented - tea served in vintage china cups and cupcakes so beautifully decorated you wouldn't want to eat them! The luncheon was also pretty fabulous and the venue decorated nicely too. We're sure those who attended had a fantastic day.
Big Mal was unwell for a couple of days which meant that our quilting pile out the back has been slowed down - but thanks to our Irish mechanic named Andrew, he is back to quilting like a dream . . .

It's that time of the month again for us where we are madly preparing our Block of the Month and Woollen Pincushion Club mailouts - it really is a big job but we have lots of fun doing it - half the fun is gift wrapping each one which makes it nice for the person receiving on the other end - a bit like Christmas each month for them . .

Best get back to some 'real work'!!

Until next time,

Leonie & Deirdre

Well, you girls! You are sooo nice. What a lovely blurb you have given re; my 'gathering'. We had a great day and Helen is a wonderful sharing tutor. Don't stress too much about Quilt Market. It will turn out just fine and I sure you will sell lots!
See you then.
Cheers Jane
