The question on everyone's lips..... I love ric rac and sell it in all colours and sizes, my fav would have to be the linen ric rac. Have never known how you measure the width of the different ric racs until now.
Great to use when doing embroidery, simply run through your printer, press onto your background fabric and start stitching.
Then simply remove by submerging in warm water, agitate for 2 - 3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
I can forward a contact if you'd like to help quilters from Queensland, just send me an email.
Our local CWA are collecting goods to send to Victorians who have been flooded out, they need.....hand sanitisers, sunscreen, areogard, medicated wipes, combs and brushes. They can also do with baby products, they don't need nappies.
Monbulk CWA are working closely with CWA's from those flood effected areas in Victoria. So l'll pass on whatever we collect at the shop to the Monny group.
Happy Australia Day to all you Aussies no matter where you are in the world.
Today is a public holiday. Last night we had our annual Australia Day eve get together with a bunch of friends. We decorated the back deck with flags. I arranged vases of flags and balloons to go on the tables along with Aussie coasters and serviettes. Ray and l wore the top hats, we looked a treat. We had the Australian Open tennis on, listened to Australian music. There was plenty of beer, meat pies and Tim Tams. A great night.
And this morning this was breakfast - Vegemite and toast.
Those who do the Frolic during the week are a little different to those who do it on the weekend. They start a little later and they are not in such a rush. They are happy to do it over a couple of days. This allows them time to have a good look at what's in the shop. Another busy day yesterday.
Don't forget, we are closed tomorrow. I'll be out celebrating Australia Day.
March, April, May Calendar I am away from Saturday April 15th until Monday May 8th. going on a road trip with seven other ladies from Chicago to Nashville. Along the way there will be a quilt shop or 2 and 4 days at the Paducah Quilt Market. I will be posting my adventures on the blog and Facebook.
The shop will be closed during that time.
