Busy Busy Busy!

Thanks to everyone that dropped in during the sale, we really did have a few crazy busy days. Now I can start to think about Christmas.... I have not bought a thing yet! I have visions of still finishing lots of bits and pieces but
time will tell. I am supposed to be tidying up the house for Christmas and putting the machine away for a bit, but it still has pride of place in the middle of the dining table. Eating around the coffee table is becoming the norm in our house.
I was in Melbourne last Christmas ,or was it the one before, and took this pic of a store display, it totally cracked me up. I think it was a dress shop. The turkey had a great look on his face that doesn't show up that well. Must fly, my last class of the year is tonight, so better get down to the shop.
Cheers, Liisa

In the shop we have had more new fabrics arriving.....
Rosalie Quinlan's new fabrics are here and so is her new book. 'A Stitch in Time'
We have our latest BOM Blossom Creek finished and hanging for you to see. I hope you like the pic of it.

Til next time,
Cheers, Liisa

Welcome to my Blog, This is my first posting and I hope I am about to learn a whole lot about blogging. I will be adding stuff as I learn the ropes, so stay tuned...
I have just returned from a quick visit to Melbourne where I spent some great time with my Sister and her family. We also visited the 'Last Days of Pompeii' exhibit at the Melbourne Museum, worth a look if you are in town.
I thought I would share a pic of our latest strip club project with you. Each month we put out a new project with precut fabric strips and a pattern to follow to make your own version.
We generally have a bout 3 0r 4 colourways to choose from and the kit price is discounted 25% off the RRP. They are usually very popular.
Happy Sewing Liisa
