Sammy welcomes Zanny

Welcome to Zanny
Zanny has come to work with us in the shop for a few weeks and Sammy was very excited to welcome her.  He was also on hand to explain all the Threadbear rules to Zanny.....no.1 rule...we always share our lunches.

Sammy is off on a holiday for a few weeks, he has packed his bags and his new cushion and he is off for a well earned break...but he has promised to send us emails and some photos of his holiday...he claims he can use a computer and an iPad so we look forwards to some holiday pics.

So many books for us to look at this week.
Another delivery from Quiltmania brought us Yoko Saito's new book "Des Paniers en tissu"..Basket made from cloth.
Yoko always does the most intricate and beautiful work and  this book is full of baskets, bags & purses using all the soft Japanese taupes and pastels she is famous for.
 The gorgeous projects in this book make us glad that we have a range of "European Taupes" in the store at the moment, perfect for the projects in this book.

We are always so thankful when someone brings some show and tell, it is so generous to share your projects and it is a great inspiration to all to see another finished quilt top ready for a borders, backing and bindings...so thanks so much to Janice Perry for letting us snap a photo of her "Farmers Wife".
Good grief, how absolutely stunning is Janice's quilt. Her colours are beautiful and the dark sashing makes the whole quilt sing...a really fantastic version of the "Farmers Wife".
