nine patch update

Yesterday I finally got to have the fun of playing with all these gorgeous packages, I have looked forward to this day for nine long months

All these gorgeous blocks were lined up on my coffee table

over a thousand bright colourful nine patch blocks , 14 plus potential quilts all there before my eyes, Ohhh the dreams of possibilities

Cooper and I worked hard trying to ensure that every bundle held one of every set and then the distribution of extra blocks for every bundle

They looked so beautiful, a mass of colour, and love

Now all I need to do is send each lovely bundle to their new home, and their new destiny . . .

A quilt that will wrap their owner in the love and kindness of the people who have made them . . . .

I feel honoured that I was able to involved in the creation of these beautiful bundles. Hopefully these will be in the post on Monday

Fabric shopping in Surry Hills

This weekend was originally planned for a trip to the blue mountains for gadget and I to celebrate our wedding anniversary, however in life plans often change and gadget had a meeting for work in Sydney and Miss S needed fabric for her year 12 major work so off to Surry Hills we headed . . . . .

Fabric shopping, not my normal fabric shopping, not patchwork fabric but dressmaking fabric

We visited three shops
Tessuti Fabrics in Commonwealth st

Lot s of really gorgeous fabrics and friendly staff.

Then we headed to the

The Fabric Shop in Copper st

Again some really gorgeous fabrics, patterns and sewing paraphernalia

Then we went to

E & M Greenfield

Wow what a collection of sewing bits and pieces

They had aisles and aisles of zippers in every colour you could possible desire, just look at the colour card above . . . . .

brooches, buckles , buttons, beads and more lace then you could ever desire

So many bolts of fabric . . . . . In every shade and type you could possibly imagine

And shelves and shelves of ribbon, they also had scissors , pins, threads and all the other sewing items you could possibly want . . . . .

It was like being a kid in a candy store but better, these things will last longer than an all day sucker . . . . . .
