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.
For the ladies who are coming to do my first Stash Buster Class. They will be working on the Going Around in Circles pattern, using nothing but scraps. Although last night l did sell a mate a bit of extra fabric for her to use in the quilt.
To have your bits checked. I was informed l was due to have a Pap smear. Had it this morning. Gotta love my doctor, she said l have a healthy looking cervix. If everything comes back as being OK l am right for the next 5 years!
Best you check and see if you are due, it's easy too put those things off!
Just in, as in picked these up this morning from a new supplier. I can now say l stock Liberty, small pieces of Liberty! Also grabbed an assortment of hankies, which make a lovely gift. They will be selling for $10.00.
The small rolls are offer have pieces measuring 6 1/2" by 22". There are 9 pieces to a roll, assorted prints and colours but all delicious. These are selling for $22.00. If l unroll them postage will be negligible, about $2 me thinks.
I am a bit excited to have discovered these, l love Liberty but can't afford to stock it by the bolt, one bolt is useless. But now l have enough for those who would like to make a little something using Liberty, just team it up with some white Quilter's Muslin, which l just happen to stock and away you go.
I am working on a new stitchery called the Arnotts Sampler. It includes an iron on pre print, but they are a bit thick for me so don't use them. Not a fan of tracing so l use something that goes through the printer, you pat it onto the background and stitch away. It dissolves once you throw it in the washing machine. (Will tell you more about that product, just this minute sold the last 8 sheets to a customer.)
As l said it's a sampler, but it comes with a bonus pattern call the Cookie Jar, that's what l am working on. The pattern calls for Cottage Garden Threads but my Wednesday ladies decided we could match the actual biscuits to DMC. I have bought 7 packets of biscuits to do this!
Hopefully will have the stitching complete by the end of the week. Pattern available for $15.40.
I just wanted to thank you for making Noel and I feel so welcome when we visited your shop last Thursday. We enjoyed chatting with you so much, and being able to sit and talk over a cuppa was wonderful. Your shop is just beautiful, and I am still wishing I lived closer. However, this won’t be my last visit. Whenever we go to Melbourne to catch up with Gavin, we will be taking the drive out to see you. I am really looking forward to starting the patterns I bought, but we only got home yesterday and I am still busy catching up with all the mundane things like washing, etc. However, I sat and looked through them last night and may start looking through my fabrics this afternoon.
Thanks again for being so friendly and welcoming. Your shop really was a highlight of our trip. My friends are going to be so envious when I tell them about our visit when we get together this coming Saturday.
