Show and Tell.

We hope everyone had a good long weekend...we had a great day in the shop on Monday and we have some fantastic show & tell for you.

Thank you to Laurel for sharing her gorgeous quilt, all quilted and ready for a binding....it is full of the best collection of teals and soft pretty blues...we are sure you will all agree that Laurel's combination of colours has made a really stunning quilt.

We also had a visit from Olga and her husband Zan, looking for a backing for this absolutely amazing and totally breathtaking quilt top.  Everyone in the shop stopped what they were doing when Olga took her quilt top out of the bag and we all gathered round to feast our eyes on it.....Olga has spent two years hand piecing this wonderful quilt and her husband Zan put the last two stitches in to finish it off...We think that is so romantic but Zan says that was his reward after two years of no conversation and no attention....we didn't dare ask Zan what Olga had planned for her next project. Thank you for sharing Olga...you are a Star.

Our only disappointed customer on Monday was Billy who came in especially to see Sammy...alas Sammy was having a true Australia Day holiday and was at home for the day...Billy was very sad to miss Sammy but he did have time for a good sniff around while his mum picked out some fabrics.

We have two new Patchwork Tsushin magazines in the shop this week...any one who knows these fantastic Japanese magazines will know that they are always full of the most amazing projects.  These magazines are published in Japanese but luckily this does not prevent us from enjoying all the goodies found inside.

Time for us all to get back to work after a holiday weekend, Sammy is well rested and back in his chair, ready to supervise the weeks work.
