We are already half way through the year and feeling the chilly winter weather - perfect for staying indoors and - if you're lucky - sewing in the warm and cosy comfort of our homes!
If you have called in to the shop in the last couple of weeks, you will have noticed the first of many changes coming in the next few weeks! I have bought a can of paint and have found lots of spots to freshen up!! So far the display boxes have changed from green to charcoal, the wall holding the hoops is now charcoal and the mirror and towel rail in the bathroom! Today we have had our new counter installed, and there's still more to come! Stay tuned ....
I have been working on a scrappy quilt I started quite a few years ago - and I am determined to finish it! It is the 'Northwind" block - all triangles, but very effective
and relatively easy to piece until you join up the blocks - ohhh all those points to match up! I'm now getting to the tail end of my scraps, which is interesting when trying to make blocks fit the spaces!
Ana, who teaches here on a Friday, has stitched 2 new baby designs - beautiful baby blankets with a thread painted mouse! They are truly beautiful!!
Keep warm and stick to your winter projects!
Best Wishes, Therese
