Holiday Weekend

Hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday weekend. I finished up lots of the projects that I have had lying around half completed.
First up I finished these cushions.
I started them back in February with the idea that they could be a Valentine's Present, but then they got shoved to the bottom of the pile while I waited to buy a zip!
Also finished this lovely drawstring bag with some of our "Ten Little Things" fabric on eBay. I followed this tutorial by Jeni and it was really easy.I'm definitely going to have a go at making some more soon.
This bag was also started a while ago. Not sure why I do that, start something and then stop half was through!
However it is now finished and I'm really pleased with it.
Going to use it today on my trip to the Post Office.

Cherry Christmas.

We received our delivery of Cherry Christmas a few days before the Festival of Quilts but didn't have time to put it in the shop. 
It's now on-line!

We have the full range available and its listed in four groups.
Advent is above, followed by Noel.

Then Cardinal and Peppermint.

We're just waiting for the Charms Packs, Layer Cakes
and Jelly Rolls to arrive.
I can't decide which is my favourite yet, I may just have to have one of each!!

Festival of Quilts : Part 2

With almost 30 hours of possible shopping time, I only managed one purchase, which hardly seems fair for four days work!  I made a dash for it to the Eternal Maker to make sure I got my mits on some of the grey 'Scratchy Scribble' before it all went!  Oh and I NEEDED two zips too!

As Tracey said, she also got her book signed by Katy, not sure who was more exited but it made Tracey's day!

Finaly I wanted to say another big thank you to everyone who came and said hello and all the support and guidance we we're given.  In particular an extra big thank you to Laura and Susan x

Festival of Quilts.

Well we made it back to our respective houses after the Festival of Quilts with cars fully loaded.
We had a hectic 4 days at the NEC but LOVED every minute!
It was so nice to meet, and talk to so many people, some we had never met before, some of which we only knew by their Ebay user names, some of which met at Malvern and some who's Blog's we stalk on a regular basis. It was lovely to put faces to names at last.
We both had our House of Tula Pink books authographed by the author!!
I also was also brave enough to get my Shape Workshop for Quilters book autographed by Katy Jones from I'm a Ginger Monkey!
We also met Laura Jane who was demoing the Sizzix quite close to us.
All in all it was a fantastic few days and we've booked to do it all again next year!!

Following on from yesterday's Kate Spain post here is some more of her fabric, newly listed in our EBay shop.
This range is called Serenade and we have made up two bundles for the shop one in the cooler Blue colourway and one in the warmer Sienna colourway.
My favourite fabric in this range is the wood grain design. I'm going to rustle up cushion for the boy's playroom using this and some others from the Walk in the Woods and the Ten Little Thing's fabric in aqua. I may even start it tonight although I do have my Summersville Quilt to finish first!
