Hey blog land... I've been having a few people say my blog isn't loading properly. Is anyone having trouble with it, or with my Craftsy videos in the sidebar? Typepad and I can't figure out what the problem is... maybe if you are having trouble try refreshing your cookies and see if that helps?
Anyhoo, I am still alive and not completely AWOL as the length of time between posts would suggest. I am very aware that you don't have ANY information about my USA trip, which was just fab and I loved it! I promise a lengthy post over the weekend but for now some news on other things -
1. Little Quilts is On the way!!
This is what I can only describe (despite being slightly biased) as the world's cutest book. I am just in love with what Amy and I have put together! Is that wrong? Oh well even if it is I'm still loving it hard :D You can preorder it from my website and if you do I promise to sign it! I'm thinking that in order to get Amy's signature in it too, we might have to do bookplates to be sent with the copies. Also while it's on pre-order, if you order another book from the website together with Little Quilts I will refund 10% from your order after payment. Huzzah!
2. Coming soon to my shop and hopefully a patchwork shop near you - I am SO SO very excited to show you my Aurifil thread collection! They are 50 weight, delicious coloured threads, the weight that I use for hand applique but they are also wonderful in the machine. The colours are expecially chosen by me to co-ordinate perfectly with Enchanted, which should be in stores soon too!
Just look at the pretties. I keep patting them. :)
3. Enchanted is ON THE WAY and so is this new quilt pattern to go with it! This pattern will NOT be in a book, it will be available seperately as a PDF pattern from me, or available wholesale to quilt shops to go with the range. Kim Bradley Creations will have it as kits at the upcoming Craft and Quilt Fair in Sydney, so make sure and look her booth up! If the fabric hasn't quite managed to be in the house (we're cutting it fine for the show), Kim will be taking preorders instead. Here is the quilt hanging in my booth at Quilt Market.
4. If you haven't yet seen Enchanted, scroll down a post for the LookBook - you will be able to see the range and all the projects made up in it. Theres a few sneaky peeks from Little Quilts in there too!
So as you can see I've been busy... travelling, making, writing, drawing, stitching.... and off for more, a quilters work is never done ;) Happy Friday everyone xx
