Advent Angels BOM by Rosalie Quinlan

Karen Rohjan has finished her  Advent Angels BOM, it looks amazing and her stitcheries are lovely. I thought you may want a look at it, so that you can see our fabric choices.... Tricia from Cut from the Same Cloth quilted it so beautifully. Well at least Karen has her Advent quilt ready to go THIS year! LOL I hope to have mine done for next year!

A huge well done to Karen and thanks for letting us put it on the blog! Merry Christmas!
Happy sewing,

Bliss fabrics

I am currently piecing a quilt from the Bliss fabric range and Boris just wanted to help!
Tim, just back from Schoolies, was helping me layout the blocks and Boris decided to join in the fun. He was just waiting for the right moment to mess them all up! It is his favourite trick! I usually put him in the bedroom while this process is happening but Tim was going to 'mind him'. Hmmm
I have the blocks laid out now just to piece them and add a border or two......
Back to my Sewing,

Toytime Circus BOM

We are happy to announce that we will run this great 8 part Block of the Month program starting in January 2011.  It will be $30/month. If you want the pattern alone it is $9.90/month. Postage and handling is charged at Australia Post rates. Below are the blocks we have put together (minus the odd missing eye!) to date, I will post the centre block when it is put together. We love it! Our colours are similar yet different!

We hope you like it as much as we do!

What a Hoot Fabric

This is the third pattern in my K.I.S.S. quilts range(Keeping it Sew Simple) and it is cot sized. Lorraine pieced it using the cute 'What a Hoot' fabric range. We do have a few kits available.
Well... I am one slightly anxious Mother this week with my youngest son away at Schoolies on the Gold Coast. We delivered him to his hotel safe and sound and the traffic wasn't that bad. The rest is up to him now.... I have to trust him to make the right decisions when the time comes and hope that he can hear that little voice (OK that nagging voice) in his head guiding him in the right direction. I will sleep easier next week!
I am off to the machine to get some sewing done..... distraction is a marvelous thing.
Happy Sewing,
Liisa xoxo

Gorgeous Little Bags

Sue Keating from 'zucchinigirl' was in the store last week and purchased this yummy fabric and quickly turned it into something too cute for words! She has it for sale on  Sue has other cute stuff there as well.
I spent the evening making a string of bunting using some doilies I picked up at the fleamarket on Sunday morning. It is sooo pretty, though it was hard cutting all the doilies in half! I think I may add some buttons to it now. When I have finished I will post a pic.
I also found a lovely crochet throw in a teal colour, perfect for No 2 Sons room! Not bad for just $1 and not a hole to be found. I hope that one day my darling family don't sell off all my hand made 'heirlooms' for just a dollar at the fleamarket. I would come back and haunt them!
Happy Sewing
Love Liisa xoxo

Vignette Magazine

This lovely new magazine by Leanne Beasley  is now available in store. Lots of loveliness to look at, sew, make and eat too!
We will have some of Rosalie Quinlan's fabrics arriving soon. I'll let you know when they get here...
Michelle and I spent a lovely afternoon at the Finders Keepers Markets at the Old Museum building. So much gorgeousness in one place, it has my descriptive vocabulary going into overdrive not mention the creative juices really flowing! I picked up Frankie Magazine's 'Sweet Treats' Book and I am off to make some Yummy Toffees right now.... hmmmm where are the hundreds and thousands?
Have a great weekend,
Liisa xoxo
