I haven't been inactive
I have been very busy over the last couple of months.
My time has been taken up researching and buying fabric, then designing things to make. Then building and launching my online shop.
Researching fabric was hard, have you seen how many fabric types there are available. Then to find the right supplier, then what to have. The decisions were endless, and extremely hard for me as I am Piscean.
Hopefully I have now found the right fabrics and suppliers and can bring some great things to you; whether that be through my classes, at my Saturday market or, on my online shop.
At the top of this page you can see that next to the home button is a shop button, click on this and it will bring you to an almost blank page, This page has a button with Shop Now on it. This will take you to my online store. Not everything is on at the moment, but I am updating weekly, so please come along every now and then and check it out.
To help launch my online shop, I am giving a 10% discount to all my customers. For every £25.00 you spend you get 10% discount, use the code Summer18 online and this is valid until 31st August 2018. (This does exclude the cost of lessons.)
Over on my tutorial pages I have put the instructions on how to make this quilt:
A very simple quilt to make and it measures 44" x 49.5". Great weekend project and great gift to give away.
To check the colours I arranged them and took black and white photographs, wow they were stunning!
Planning was next underway and I had designed the mini quilt.
The first couple of blocks looked great, but I soon got to realize that something was wrong.
The block patterns were disappearing in the beautiful patterns of the collection. My fault. I should have bought some solids to mix it up.
Lesson learnt and I pulled out another fat quarter bundle from my stash. Funny how that happens – that we sewers just seem to happen to have some “spare” fabric. But with this I added some solids and the results were so much better.
As for the Dashwood Bloom, I’ll put it in the UFO box and finish it when I fancy. Or is that just Claire speak for never, or frogged?
