......there has been a bit of that around here this week!
The horses haven't been in for months, however they were quite happy to put up with a few hi-jinx capers! I don't think it was the most comfortable of rides for the three of them, but their were lots of laughs!!
Despite my 3.00 closing this past week, it's been quite busy and I have managed to get a fair bit done. This is the new range called Fox Fields by Tula Pink, quite a character it seems, from what I have read about her. One, who always manages to include some whimsical animals/birds/insects into her designs. Sometimes very subtle, but this time easy to find. I love all the colour combos but I think it's the aqua/grey leading into the limey green for me.
I ordered this range when I was at Quilt Market in Melbourne last year. It was a toss up between this and Amy Butler's newest collection or the one by Anna Maria Horner. All bright and funky, gorgeous bold designs.....unfortunately I just can't have them all (darn it!!) and this was the one that won out. And it's been pretty popular with others since it went on the shelf. Yaaaay!
If you're in to the more traditional styles, then you just can't go past a Maywood collection, designed by Marti Michell, that naturally includes roses. They do it so well! With a few Shadowplay co-ordinates, you cannnot go wrong!
Bronte has helped me frame these up nicely for you to see, and the best news is that there are a few more to add yet, and they are on their way.
Not much sewing going on around here this week, although I have finished all my stitcheries for the Best Friends Forever hexagon quilt. Still have to put them all together yet - after I make more hexagons of course! Just so that I have a bit of hand sewing, I've dragged out yet another hexagon quilt, the paper pieced variety I started a while back, using Kaffe Fassett fabrics. It's already quite large and very awkward to manage!!
Next weekend of course, is Easter. Once again, I will be closing at 3pm of an afternoon and Friday will be closed. Sat. morning open from 9.00 to 12 then back in on the Tuesday as per usual.
I hope you all have an enjoyable Easter break and the only bunnies you see, are armed with lots of chocolate!
Talk soon, Sandy.
