The Warmth of Sunshine
With the weather here on the sunshine coast in Queensland warming up, we are having some of the most beautiful days we have had all year. We have had many visitors call in on us and we have thoroughly enjoyed having them share their adventures with us. We do hope the visitors have enjoyed their stay and hopefully we will see them again.
All the lovely visitors we have had has inspired us and we thought we should have a morning tea, over which we can share some of your lovely completed Lynette Anderson projects. At this stage we are in the early planning, but if you think it is something you would like to be involved in, then please send us an email with when you think you may like to visit. It would be lovely to hear about your adventures. Lynette is safely away on another adventure of her own so you should keep an eye on her Facebook posts to see how much fun Lynette is having.
It is always comforting to know you have someone to support you when you need it and more often than not a good "cuppa" will do the trick. Our "Tea for Two" stitchery reminds us of our closest friends and the warmth shared over a cup of tea.
The gorgeous "Blue Bird Cottage", is one of our favourites. Made using Lynette's "Hollyhock Cottage" fabric range, this wallhanging features appliqué and embroidery as well as a few other techniques. Limited in number so don't miss out.
Back by popular demand is Lynette's "Initials" pattern. Beautifully fine delicate stitcheries, perfect for that special gift for that special friend and with Christmas just around the corner there is no better time. Thread, hoops and tape measure ribbon are available here.
Talking about Christmas, we have the perfect gift idea. These Lynette Anderson Scandinavian themed kits are limited in number and will not be restocked so be sure to secure one.
Even though it is warming up in Queensland, it is definitely getting cooler in some parts of the world. For the cooler climates we have the "Snowmen Make Me Smile" flannel fabric bundles.
This fabric is sure to bring warmth to any project, and when that project is a special gift, that warmth is felt for many years.
Don't forget to keep an eye on our great fabric deals. You may just find that perfect fabric you have been searching for.
We hope you have a wonderful week ahead full of lovely surprises. Don't forget, if you have any questions just email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Exciting New Things
It has been an exciting week with many new additions to the Little Quilt Store. With Christmas fast approaching we have a new pillow kit available, "Christmas Friends Pillow".
Created in Lynette's gorgeous style, this Christmas pillow gives us a look into four windows of the Christmas spirit. Lynette's combination of appliqué and embroidery gives this project it's beautiful dimension and, as with many of Lynette's projects, the hand painted button finishes this pillow off beautifully.
Also available are the fabric packs for the quilt featured in the Quilters Companion magazine "Stars Aligned", designed by Wendy Sheppard using Lynette's "Starry Night" fabric range. This pieced quilt gives the stars their sparkle and brings to life the Christmas cheer. This beautiful fabric is also available in a variety of bundles.

Adventures in Spring
We have enjoyed another beautiful week at Little Quilt Store. Lynette has returned and is busy telling us about all the wonderful sights and the lovely people that crossed her path whilst on her travels. It is always interesting to hear about what other stitchers are doing in different parts of the world.
One of our favourites here at the Little Quilt Store is My Home or Yours. We recently finished this project as a block of the month and it was lovely to see this quilt created in so many different colour ways. We have both the patterns and fabric packs, so you could either finish yours similar to the original or put your own colour twist on this wonderful quilt.
As it is Spring in Australia and wedding bells are in the air at this time of year, we have a few limited packs for "With This Ring", including the pattern. This memorable wallhanging would make the perfect gift for the happy couple or you could memorialise your own special day forever in stitches.
Back in stock are our craft cases. These cases make the most beautiful and practical sewing cases, just perfect for keeping all your sewing notions in one place, safe and secure.
"The Sewing Case" is a perfect match for our craft cases. This project was designed for the craft case, using Lynette's definitive style and design making the case absolutely beautiful. We have both the pattern and the kits available.
This will be your last chance to grab a "Wildflower Wood" fabric bundle. As you know, this fabric range has been out of print for some time and we have made some very nice bundles with what is still available. These bundles are in very limited numbers so don't miss out.
As you know, Christmas is just around the corner, so to add a small bit of Christmas cheer we have our "Starry Night" bundles in Angel Delights, Fat Eighths and Fat Quarters. There is still enough time before Christmas to finish gifts of any size.
To add an extra Christmas wish, we have our "Christmas Joy" button pack. This pack brings a smile to your face and of course, a delicate button adds that finishing touch to any project.
The Warmth of Sunshine and Stitches

Make sure you follow her adventures and see all the fun things that Lynette is doing.
New arrivals and back in stock are these gorgeous scissor charms. As well as your favourites we have some new additions to our collection, Cupcakes, Ladybirds, Teapots, Puppies and the sweet Penguins. There is a charm for everyone.
This week we have one of Lynette's favourite's, "Hens in the Yard". This lovely project gives the rustic feel of being on the farm and looking forward to those fresh eggs. We have both patterns and fabric packs available.
Whilst you are thinking about being on the farm, keep in mind "Stitch it for Autumn". This book is packed with projects reflecting the farmyard life. Great value with so many projects and such variety in the style of patterns; all gorgeous and practical.
When looking at "Stitch it for Autumn", you will see the lovely "Mending Fences" fabric range. We have "Mending Fences" fat ¼ packs. These packs contain one fat quater of all 25 prints which will give you a variety of fabrics to complete many of the projects in "Stitch it for Autumn".
Also this week we have some new Fat ¼ packs. These packs contain 4 fat quarters from Lynette's Hollyhock Cottage and Follow My Heart. Just enough fabric to do something nice with or perfect as a gift.
We have also added some new Quilter's Garden fabric packs to our collection.
For those in our "Simply Vintage" BOM, good news, they have arrived. If you would like to add to your magazine don't forget to email and let us know. For those not in the BOM we have a few extras but be quick so as not to miss out.
