It's nearly time............!

It's almost the end of an amazing 2012 here in the UK. Despite the weather's best efforts to make it the wettest year on record, we still had a glorious summer of sport and of feeling great about Great Britain with the London Olympics and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The last year has been busy for me as I juggle the business and my editing work. My eBay sales continue to amaze me considering I only have a dozen things listed there (I really should find the time to list some more items!) Every UK quilt show has been busy and mega...........every single one! There have been lots of new fabrics delivered..............and I have become addicted to using pre-cuts!
So what does 2013 hold? More of the same by the look of it. In my quilting life I want to make more quilts for me...........and actually finish the ones I make to display the fabrics I sell to inspire you. I want to get out and visit more quilt shows. It is so inspiring to see what other quilters create.
More immediately, my annual sale starts in a few hours!! There are some great bargains to be had as usual. All the fabrics in the sale are now £5.00 a metre which is more than 50% off in some cases. The sale will run online until lunchtime Saturday 12 January, when I will pack what's left and take to the Quilters' One Day Fabric Sale at Farnham Maltings in Farnham, Surrey on Sunday 13 January.

So why not grab yourself a bargain? Once it's's gone!
Have a happy and peaceful new year!

New Fabrics......yay!

Finally found some time today to upload the fabrics that were delivered a couple of weeks ago. A D- for me for taking so long to do it!
So what new goodies do I have in store for you?

First up is Boyd's Bears from Spectrix; a cosy bear collection featuring a cot quilt sized panel and various co-ordinates

Next up is Bloom from Kanvas which is part of Benartex. A couple of great flower prints and a yummy stripey co-ordinate, although the colours of the images I have taken from the web don't seem to match the actual fabrics so I'm going to need to take my own digital images of these.

Next we have Dancing Cranes from Paintbrush Studios; some classic Oriental prints with a great main panel

And finally Vogue from Henry Glass fabrics. This is the collection I am going to play with first. I just love this stripe

So I tweeted this morning that I needed to decide either to upload fabrics, blog or sew...........well since I've done the first two that can only mean it's Sewing Time!!
