New fabric, spring sunshine, & a long weekend !

The shop is bursting at the seams with new fabrics at the moment with lots of new ranges arriving in store over the last week.  With lots of moving bolts and rearranging shelves, we have managed to find a home for 8 new ranges!  Here are just a couple to tempt you.   Friendship Ring is a collection of wonderful soft reds, overdyed pink, aubergine and chocolate with a smattering of cheddar accents. The prints are all small scale and so pretty in geometrics , spots and flowers. 
Friendship Ring $23.50 metre.

Have a look at THESE! New from Judie Rothermel and in a great mix of colours comes Georgetown shades of slate blue and tan, sparked with reds and neutral brown tones, mid green, pink and golden yellow.  There are some great prints in this range and lots of fussy cutting and applique potential!

It's Thursday today ~ so time for Corliss' next block pattern from "Celebrating Mary Brown", her current work in progress.  This is pattern number 4 ~ Flowerpot Block.  As we've explained before, Corliss is releasing just 10 of her favourite blocks from the quilt over 10 weeks while she stitches late into the night to complete this rather big and very beautiful applique quilt.  The complete pattern will be available early 2016 and will include patterns for all 80 or so blocks. But in the meantime, if you just want a head start or want to use a few blocks in a small project, you might consider individual block patterns.
Celebrating Mary Brown ~ Flowerpot block $9.50
It's the Australian Football Grand Final weekend and in their wisdom, the State Government has declared Friday 2 October a public holiday giving everyone here a lovely long weekend.  Threadbear will be open over the long weekend as follows ~ Friday 11am-2pm, Saturday 10am-2pm, & Sunday 11am - 2pm.  
 With the mellow spring sunshine here in Castlemaine this week, Sam has been out in the garden with Kurt end enjoying a game with his favourite bunny.  Have a GREAT weekend everyone.
