A little time to review the last few weeks of maddness

November 03, 2011

Hello Everyone I have been madly working on getting everything organized for the Calico Xmas show. This will be the first time Pine Valley Quilts has been vendor at this show and I have been working day and night to get everything done and tick off my to do list. I am finally seeing some light and the end of the tunnel and have taken a small break to write this post, so you don't all think I have fallen off the planet. Here are some sneak preview pictures of some of the new things I have been working on, and will have available on our stand over the weekend. [caption id="attachment_632" align="alignleft" width="655"] Autumn Baskets[/caption]             We have a few kits available of this lovely table runner, we also have the patterns available. [caption id="attachment_634" align="alignleft" width="573"] Chocolate and Lila[/caption]           Chocolate and Lilac is my latest quilt, I have fallen in love with strip quilts and these gorgeous fabrics. This is not a difficult quilt to make and a very effective result. Also if you love to quilt as I do, there is plenty of scope for playing with quilting designs and just having lots of fun. This quilt is also available in a kit or a pattern. Hope to see you all at Calico Xmas, please do come and say hello. Venue: North Harbour function Centre. Nov 4th and 5th 10am - 5 pm Nov 6th 10 am - 4 pm.   Happy Stitching Sharon

Last week we had a scheduled power cut for our area, meaning I could not do any quilting on the Roses quilt. This was the perfect time to pull my fabrics out and sort through them, folding them nicely and organizing them into colour baskets. I have been meaning to resort them for a while now. This was a great way to get reacquainted with my fabrics, finding all those precious fabrics that just make my heart race. Giving me ideas for my next project, another journey! Benny decided that would be fun and he loves to help, I think he secretly wants to be a quilter too.
