Posted 10/11/2016

So that those of you lovely ladies who are not on Facebook or Instagram don't miss out, I will try to do a weekly blog post to show you what's been happening in the shop and with me.

North Woods decoration panel is by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics. Making decorations couldn't be easier! You just cut them out, make a hanging ribbon, pin together and sew. I like to put two pins together where I have to stop to make sure that I stop sewing with enough room to turn the shape to the right side. Stuff with fibre fill or chop up some left over batting until the desired puffiness.

I also painted on some glitter glue for a bit of sparkle. you can embellish however you like.

You would have seen in the October newsletter that the Lepidoptera pattern and fabric by Elizabeth Hartman for Robert Kaufman fabrics arrived. I have started making a sample, it is coming together beautifully and I am really loving the Essex metallic background. It is much more sparkly in real life that the photos.

It was the annual Bright's Iconic Rod Run last weekend and the town was pumping! Over 1000 hot rods and street machines and over 10,000 visitors. It was epic. Luckily I received my order of Golden Holden fabric just in time for the weekend.

It comes loose, so I have to fold it and roll it onto a bolt.

In the background you can see the Vantastic Quilt sample.

This awesome design is from Claire Turpin and I have used heaps of retro fabrics.

I waited all weekend to get a cool hot rod reflecting in the window... pretty cool, hey!

So this week it's out with the Hot Rods and in with Paint the Town Purple.... in support of Relay for Life which is being held next weekend November 19-20 in Myrtleford. So those of you who know me know that my favourite colour is purple, which made this a joy to put together. I was surprised to discover that I have more than 50 different purple fabrics!! Must be time to make something with them.
