Easter Monday update

I attempted to sew yesterday - just a simple square with sashing  x 4 and the first two were ok but when I went to sew the others on they were at least 1/4 inch out - not happy so I unpicked it.I think I will stick to playing with fabric and leave the sewing to others...................

Rain doesn't stop patchworkers looking for that right piece of fabric!

Yesterday we had a visit from Annie who delivered a must have patchwork "Mumsy Bag". Admire Annie's skills in the photo. It is made from Birch Organic cotton which Annie said was a delight to sew. This is in the teal range and there is a yellow range available - watch this space as I am promised another in the alternative colour way............

Blog Police visit

The Blog Police arrived today and admonished me severely for not blogging this week since the very first Blog!  As I am still in Blog 101 class I thought this was a bit nasty but I am attempting to communicate in this new fashion. I went to AQC in Melbourne on Thursday and had an interesting time looking and getting ideas - came home exhausted and poorer.......

Preparing for the annual Easter Sale - this year I am open Easter Saturday and Sunday 10 till 5 and Anzac Day/Easter Monday 1-5 - 20% discount off the already good everyday prices - but fat 1/4 are still at $4 and dirt cheap at that! Speaking of dirt, here is a picture of a peony from my previous life - now I have them all year on fabric - much better.

My very first post

. . . and people said I couldn't sew!
 Yes, the image was captured here in my shop. "Eureka Patchwork" has entered the world of Blogging.
This lovely skirt was made by one of my customers, using some of my very special Japanese scrumptious fabric.  Our shop has been open now for 13 months, and for our anniversary, we have reached the amazing total of 4000 bolts of different fabrics.  We have a shopfront in Ballarat, 143 Victoria Street, first in on the way from Melbourne and last stop on the way out.  Our On-Line business is currently under construction and will be up and running soon.  
Call in when you're in the area.
