Of course THE most exciting thing this last week has been Rosalie's latest range of fabric arriving on her doorstep! She has finally managed to start cutting into it (after a few days of serious fabric fondeling!). I didn't think I could love a range more than her last one but this is really delicious:
I can't wait until she shows you what's on her studio wall that she's working on because it's just irresistable!
And on another note, I managed to do lots of stitching this week as I sat with someone while they were in hospital for a few days (I know that I am always going on about having a project on the go that you can grab as you walk out the door on the way to the hospital or doctors - this week I am glad I took some of my own advice!) So I completed my project for Sarah at Quilt Fabric Delights for the Charm Club that she has coming up. She said I could give you a little sneak peek:
Having all that 'sitting' time I also managed to hand quilt the project which I think really adds to it's charm and '30's look'.
And some more good news for those of you who are as much in love with the Cosmo threads as I am. The ENTIRE range is now in stock at Under The Mulberry Tree (there goes all my pocket money!):
Also I am happy to announce another new store for you to spend your pocket money, 'Cookies and Cream Craft' who describes her store as 'Deliciously Inspiring' (my kind of description!). She has lots of great things in stock and more on the way so keep your eyes open for what Sandy has.
And I know I have had quite a few emails this week from ladies still wanting to join up to do 'Down In The Garden'. So I have done a little phone around and 'Under The Mulberry Tree' still has a few spots left as well as 'Tinkers Cart' in beautiful Townsville (I would recommend a trip up there to collect your kit - LOL!):
This week in my travels (well, hunting around for fabric in Rosie's studio) I found this treat:
My littlest daughter is doing 'Different Faces, Different Places' at school this term so I plan to have some fun with this 1/2 meter!:
And so, before you ask, it's by Alexander Henry and the range is called "you and me" and is just so cute and so colourful to make a quilt, library bag, pillowcases for a kids room, cushions for a kids room or even curtains:
And, just as I am always going on about, have a look at the colour circles to help you pick any embroidery threads that you might want to match to the fabric.
So, that's the update from me here, and I'll be back for a chat soon,
