Happy Easter

Wishing you a basket full of blessings this Easter!

I thought I would share my lastest addition "Hareloom Easter" from this months issue of Homespun. I just fell in love with her, and she's designed by Gini Simpson - one of my favourite designers. I'm really happy with the results, I like her, even my husband made a comment and that is saying something. If you decide to make her, please share a photo with me.

My site is back online, it seems IP address from Australia were blocked, so I will be working had in the next few days to add new products.

Anyway, Happy Easter Everyone! Now were's that chocolate ........

Not Happy, Jan!

Skinny Sammy and Sarafina

Wouldn't you know it, spent the afternoon preparing images for new fabrics, buttons and patterns to add to my online store only to find out I cannot access my my site for some reason or another. If you have been trying to view my store I apologise. I have emailed Donna to try and work out what the problems is. Hopefully, fingers crossed she will get back to me, asap.
Skinny Sammy and Sarafina will be available for purchase along with other goodies looking for a new home.

Noah's Ark BOM

To celebrate a year of blogging Lynette Anderson has designed a
FREE stitchery BOM called Noak's Ark. The first month, which is the Bunnies is available for download. Helen and I have already stitched our first block, now I have to wait a whole month for the next one. This is fun.

Sewing Keeper in progress
Helen and I have been working on the two doll patterns (Melody and Sewing Keeper)along with 6 other patterns we receive on our first Stitcher's Dream Day Out outing in 2006.
Melody is finished but I have been a little slow in completing the Sewing Keeper.....Helen, I promise to finish her over the weekend.
Melody is quite shabby rather than vintage, I'm really happy with her.

Patterns, Buttons and Fabric

Spent the day changing the shop around to accommodate new arrivals which arrived today - lots of patterns, buttons and fabric which I hope to get online in the next few days.
Patterns and Buttons
The first lot Bronwyn Hayes stitcheries kits sold out the moment I opened the box. The new stock arrived today along with Lynette Anderson buttons and patterns. Lynette's designs are always very popular.

Dreaming of Roses
Beautiful romantic floral fabric designed by Jane Shasky.
Blue and Yellow or Pink and Aqua

Friendship, Birthday's and Shopping

What a wonderful way to celebrate our birthday - we laughed, we shopped, we indulged and than we shopped again.
Teresa and I share the same birthday, so we decided to visit Country on Tamborine which Helen found a few weeks back. I was in Heaven, there was Prim every where I looked.
My Shopping
Don't you just love Tula Mae. Helen found her on her first visit knowing I would just love her. I would have bought everything but I thought I better share and besides Helen's boot wasn't big enough.
