Fabric Beauty

Lovely sew and sews last night enjoying all the stories from Theresa's European holiday. Over bubbles I got all the details of the fun, food and fabric. And a gorgeous  gift of such fabric beauty...thank you :)

Back to it

Tonight, after a five week break, we are back to our regular Sew and Sews night of a Thursday catch up to sew and share what we have been sewing. It is such a great way to learn, keep motivated, drink a few bubbles and laugh. I am sure I sew less when we don't meet. So here's to all the worlds sewing groups....cheers

To Market Two

My second market for the year has made me realise the difficult economic reality of selling quilts. Unless the buyer really loves and has a good reason...such as a baby or a birthday then most people think that they are too expensive if you charge the full tote odds for the fabric ...and a bit for your time. Sad but true. And all the other lovely things we made for the market that sold last time....they did not sell either. I think retail is just too hard. I might give the Christmas market One last go but after that....probably not. But we did have a fine day out ....and I sold some of these

Happy *squeel*

I can finally blog from my phone. Now watch me fly....
