Quote of the Week:
You can't have rainbows without rain . . .
Another week has flown by and we are all madly counting down the days to Christmas. Neither Deirdre or myself have done ANY Christmas shopping yet . . . so if you see two "on a mission, mad-eyed" women racing around Hobart, that will be us two on Christmas Eve!
I got a lovely surprise through the week when an old friend called in unexpectantly from interstate to say hi whilst on a conference here in Hobart - I apoligise to Pam (a customer I was serving at the time) for the possible burst ear drum that she left with after I let out one loud scream of excitement when Colin walked through the door!! Deirdre came running out from the back expecting to see a fabric delivery as that is our usual response when the delivery man arrives (sorry Col !!) and even though it wasn't fabric, she was still happy to see him too!
Speaking of fabric, there are lots of yummy things on the way - I don't think they will be here before Christmas (which is mighty sad) but they should start arriving early in the new year. "Ave Rose" is a really pretty range for all of you who like big florals in blue greys, pinks and soft greens - there are also some smaller prints in the range too.
In the reproduction line we have "Quaker Quilts" and "Sturbridge Village IV", both by Judie Rothermel on the way, so will let you know when they get here - although you WILL hear the screams then . . .
Now to our giveaway last post - we asked you to share a funny Christmas story with us and we have chosen three people who will each receive a copy of our pattern "Tiny Treasure Cones", just in time to make up for Christmas. They are Marita, Jan and Carrie P. Please email us your mailing address and we will pop them in the post to you - thanks for sharing with us and congratulations !!!
Now we also have another giveaway - Deirdre's pattern called "Yuletide Wishes" which is pictured at the top of the page - one lucky person will have the chance to win it but you must leave a comment by Monday 15th about what you like most about the quilt and we will announce the winners that same day.
Time to go and watch my darling girl at her end of year concert . . . they grow up far too quickly. . .
Until next time,
Leonie & Deirdre - The Quilted Crow
