“Christmas is just around the corner” the gentle breeze whispers and it makes me shudder at the thought of how quickly the year has flown by. I have a girl just about ready to leave High School – it can’t come quickly enough for her or me at the moment. The stress caused by the end of the year has me walking a tightrope at the moment as I gently remind her that it won’t be long and it will all be over - thank goodness! My other gorgeous girl has recently changed high schools and is currently settling into a new routine and friendships. Such a brave thing to do, leave familiar surroundings and friendships to search for something better.
So with Christmas creeping into our thoughts “Christmastime” by Annie Downs has arrived at the shop. Soft pinks, blues, greens and browns with sweet little Christmas themes will have you searching for the perfect pattern to make stockings, quilts and wall hangings - just to get you started. To go hand in hand with these fabrics Annie has produced a lovely panel that would make an absolutely fabulous Christmas swag or Advent Calendar. Fat 1/8 packs have been cut, bundled and tied and are irresistible when teamed with the panel.
We are having a “Here comes Christmas” project day on Sunday 14 October starting at 8am in the morning with a homemade brunch. After which you will have a choice of 3 projects – Santa Surprise designed by our friend Majella from Kookaburra Cottage or a Christmas Swag or Tree using the panel from Annie Downs Christmastime range. We have a selection of two colourways for Majella’s Santa Surprise – soft pretty pinks and reds or traditional country reds and greens..
Come join us and make a head start on your Christmas projects.......of course there will be more gorgeous Christmas projects and ideas to share with you on the day......
