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
