Be Thankful, Enjoy Some Lovely Fabric!

Be Thankful. 
Work hard.
You can't use up creativity, the more you use the more you have.
Life is better when you're laughing.
Enjoy the little things.

 I'm loving this fantastic upbeat text fabric that came in this week along with lots of cheery uplifting fabric which has inspired and cheered me up no end today.

Modern bright floral prints.

This great kids print arrived this week too - this is a lovely soft aqua background, perfect for a boy or a girl, paired with a really popular warm tangerine. Plainstitchers love a fox or squirrel, pair them with the cutest mushroom i've seen in a while and I guarantee that this fabric will fly out of the shop. Love those squirrels!

Lastly a zingy fresh green funky flower print, paired with a great basic brown ( always a good stash in my book), a punchy red flower on a crisp white background, along with the fab text print which I'm planning to use as an appliqué background ( rubs hands with glee)!

 This week I've been battling a nasty bout of tonsillitis, which has left me too pathetic to even contemplate wrestling a quilt to hand sew. I've been reduced to a bit of light Christmas embroidery, hanging out with my similarly afflicted boy, slowly sewing this years baubles. We're on the up now ( yay for the miracle powers of antibiotics) and cutting and folding this lovely selection of sunny fabric has been a lovely distraction.

All this fabric will be in the shop from tomorrow and we are open Thursday 10am - 1pm in the Shop and Claire's Cathedral Windows class will be running in the Workroom, on Friday Jeanne will be teaching Little Girls Dresses, but the shop will be closed, but we will be open again on Saturday 10am- 1pm and will be making Christmas Tablerunners. Do pop in and perhaps treat yourself a little FQ pressie in amongst the shopping for everyone else this time of year!
