Reasons To Be Cheerful

1. Its so sunny! Yippee
2. We're getting so much lovely new fabric in.
3. We've restocked on the lovely Wildwood prints that you've all loved so much.
4. We've got the first of our order of the fabulous Tilda prints. They look lovely with the Wildwood actually.

 5. Or they make a fantastic subtle backdrop to these gorgeous blowsy Rose prints don't you think?
 6. Tula Pinks Foxfield is looking so luscious. I'm using it for my summer English Paper Piecing project - its a reason to be cheerful in itself!

7. Our ShopRoom is all prettified and (almost!) ready to open on Saturday 19th April at 10am

8. Thank you so much for the super enthusiastic response to our Autumn classes - we've been overwhelmed! If you are thinking you'd like to take Bee in My Bonnet, Farmers Wife during the day, Dressmaking or Machine Embroidery and you haven't yet let me know do so sooner rather than later as all of these classes are filling up fast. Simple Sampler in the evening has sold out already, sorry.

9. We have such a fab selection of fat quarters - come and have a rummage

10.Our Workroom is now super serene with all the sample quilts and sewing organised and no longer falling on my head every time I reach for something to make a point!

 10. On Saturday it's the birthday of  Dolly, the Barmaid at The Red Lion Pub ( the timber framed building in the pic, opposite our Workroom). She's 100 years old and has been working at the Red Lion in Wendover for 76 years. She's having a huge party on Saturday and everyone's invited to a family fun day so do drop in to the Red Lion and wish her a Happy Birthday then pop over the road and say Hi and see our lovely new ShopRoom while you're about it.

The great thing about being on the High Street in Wendover is that we have our own flag - look at it fluttering in the sunshine - it's making me feel ridiculously cheerful every time I catch a glance of it. Happy Birthday Dolly and enjoy the sunshine wherever you are this Easter  x
