The ramblings from a small quilt shop on the South Islands West Coast of New Zealand

Thursday, August 4, 2011


Oh my goodness, I can’t believe that it has been so long since I last posted anything – I will consider myself well and truly told off!
Hummmm, so what has kept me busy for the last few weeks?  Well, pattern writing for one – boy does that job take forever, then there was  and is quite a bit of stitching of new samples, not to mention the cross stitching, stitchery SAL that we have going here at the shop, class samples and just life in general  which also includes continued physio on my foot– so please accept my apologies for my MIA. 
There are so many projects underway that it really is getting silly, some days I can be working through 3 or 4 projects – am I the only one here that does that?  Anyway as a result there is  little in the ‘finished’ pile and no photo’s to share, sad but true.
I know I have lots to stitch but couldn’t resist this…
Pay It Forward
I love making goodies for other people, so I have signed up with Peg so now I need three people to play….
the rules are…..
1) I will make some goodies for the first three people who would like to join in…… It will be a surprise and will arrive when you least expect it.
2) I will have 365 days to to do it in …………Where is the catch? to get a handmade present from me you have to play too! This means you pledge to send something to three readers of your blog. It does not have to be stitching or knitting just handmade,
3) You must have a blog. Once you receive your little something you must post about your Pay it forward on your blog to keep the fun going - be sure to use the Pay it forward badge.

So If you would like to play “Pay It Forward”….please make a comment
looking forward to hearing from you hugs
