Recently I had the fortune to be introduced to Japanese taupe's and if you haven’t tried sewing with them do – they are superb to handle, soft and smooth and even better to stitch with. Well, having my own little quilt shop has allowed me the right to select fabrics to sell, so as soon as the taupe's were available I managed to get a few to go on the shelves. These really are gorgeous and sadly the photo just doesn’t do them justice, hey, they are so good even the reverse looks great.
Another pile of fabric crept its way through the doors this week too – all dots. Some pink ones, some green ones, mauve ones and red ones, then there’s dark greens, dark reds, cerise and brown. Big ones and small ones and some that aren’t quite round.
Then we move onto the beautiful Charm packs that followed their big relations the FQ’s, through the doors. So it’s all been pretty busy here, stacking the shelves and getting ready for the tourist season to begin.
In between folding, rolling and stacking I managed to get a few more Christmas decorations made, some lovely quilted baubles and a little finish for OPAM. They are so easy to make that I think I’ll just keep adding them to my stash.
Well a new week is almost with us, last week was awful and there have been so many kind people that have given up themselves and their sympathies to the families of the Pike River 29. Let us hope that day by day life will get easier for those left behind.
Have a wonderful week, hugs
