Piecing and Pizza Night

Our piecing and pizza night was a huge success. Thanks girls and Terry for a great night. I didn't know what to expect when I decided to have this night but it was so greatly received that we will have more. I just hope I can be a little more organised. Here are some photos from the night.
Coming next is our Asian Affair.
Esmes website with shopping cart has gone live!
Needs a newsletter -it's coming soon.

Raelene's doyley bag

Raelene brought her new bag in to show us last week. Made from old doyley's, it was a wonderful piece of artwork. A lot of the embroidery was newly worked by Raelene.  Well Done!

A quiet Sunday at home, finishing sample projects for our Piecing and Pizza Night on Friday. Will put up photos later.
And playing with Terry's new camera.  Last weekend there wasn't a sign of blossom in my garden and yesterday my plum tree was covered. Hidden in amongst the blossom were several cobweb's covered in dew.  This one has disappeared today.

This week

It's been a big week for me. I finally bit the bullet and signed up for facebook.  Why , you may well ask?
I needed to have a presence for the shop, so it was time. What a huge learning curve!
I'm not really liking it but I guess that will come as I get more familiar. So I am posting here tonight for a little normality. When I learn how, I will put up  facebook logo (page?) for those interested.

New fabrics in this week - Sophie by Chez Moi.

New quilt that I've been putting together this week

Finally finished the first part of Helen stubbings Stitching Sunday sampler, I'm way behind.

It must be nearly spring, I have been tidying up the shop and putting up new quilts.
We have a sale table with lots of good specials and great sale bargains on Janome machines.
Plus 20% off all flannel for this month.
