We Love Getting Parcels, do you?
We were so excited today when a box of these gorgeous stilettos arrived - we sold the first few that we had in record time and there are some really cute ones in this batch.
What do you use a stiletto for?? I use mine to help guide and keep straight the last piece of fabric as it goes under the foot of my sewing machine and now I have one I cant work without it!
We all love a great find, and who doesn't love a great find as cute as these new little traditional Chinese Scissors? We've all decided that they are a must have in our sewing kits. Available in Antique Bronze or Rose Gold, which ones do you love?
If you are an owl lover, maybe these delightful little Primitive Owl scissors are more your thing.
Of course you need somewhere secret to hide your scissors away from the rest of the family, or they will never be the same again.
We think that hiding them in Mrs Hen Needlecase,
or even trickier the Make Do Sewing Organiser that is disguised as a bamboo steamer.
If you haven't already signed up, it's not too late, but be quick!

Good Things Come in Small Packages
One of the most frequently requested items customers ask for when they visit us here on the Sunshine Coast is 'something small' to do while travelling or on holidays.
These are a few of our favourite small things.
The Little Garden Purse has got to be a must have! It's so sweet and would make a great little gift.
Maybe you'd just prefer a handy little wallet style purse instead.
Don't forget if you are stitching, the Stitchery Stabilizer will assist in giving you a beautiful even finish.

It's Monday already!!
Goodness me, where are the days going?
It seems everyday I start with a list which I never quite get
to the end of and to which I am continually adding things that
need to be done - I have no idea where last week went but
hopefully I did do some productive things.
Just in case you need to write a list, why not print out these free to use fun lists and get writing.
We have just had a big box of books arrive and
'It's Quilting Cats & Dogs' was amongst them.
This book is filled with some great animal orientated projects
and in fact it was almost the first time that Hugo and
Felix made an appearance.
The little quilt featured is 'Lucky Clover' which is how the shapes
created by the piecing appear to me. Its a fairly fast little quilt to put
together and looks great in all colour combinations, so if you need a
pretty quilt fast this might be just the pattern your looking for.
Glebe Island, Sydney
This week we are in Glebe Island, Sydney at the exhibition
centre for the Quilt and Craft Fair where we have stand D75,
if your in Sydney please come and say hello we are here until Sunday.
For those of you who live further afield, here is a tour :)
It took us most of Tuesday to unpack all these boxes and
get everything looking pretty.
our Lizzie Laser has been busy cutting for us.
name of this sweet dimensional journal cover which has been
made using red prints from my 'Hearts and Flowers' collection.
our sweet Christmas corner
collection is here visiting in Sydney with us,
we have kits or patterns available.
proving popular, we have made some new scrappy 2 1/2 fabric
packs to get you started on this quilt and also have some
gorgeous new Bread and Butter cream packs which are perfect for the backgrounds.
all look so pretty together
New Block Of The Month
We are taking bookings for my new stitchery block of the month quilt called 'Green Thumb' which when finished measures approx. 30" square. As many of you know I don't do 'real gardening' as I hate the feel of dirty hands - so my gardening is done with fabric, needle and threads, I hope that you enjoy gardening this ay too.
I have used fabrics from my new collection Stonehouse Garden
for this project, these fabrics are due in stores
August/September. We will be busy
cutting fabrics kits for you and are planning to start this new
five part quilt in September 2016.
You can choose to have the fabric pack and month one pattern to begin
with and then just one pattern each month for the following
four months, with this package we will be supplying you
with an iron on transfer each month to save you from tracing
the design OR you can just have a pattern each month for five months.
There are lots of optional extras to choose from, including
a pack of my 'Country Style Quilting' Valdani floss. If you already
have the pack but need to top up on some colours,
let us know we have stock on hand.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask us 07 5450 7497 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
bye for now
