Its April……already

I just can’t believe that we are in to April already.  Seems only five minutes ago that we were packing way the Christmas tree to see the new year in.

But in a good way that means we are well on the way to summer.

I hope you’ve all had a good week, its been a truly busy and fantastic week here.

The haberdashery has been extremely busy with customers, new stock and workshops and craft groups that are now in full swing.

Stock wise we’ve had lots of lovely yarns, needle cases and the all important patterns. We had new fabrics in too this week. But without a doubt the most exciting delivery came Friday lunchtime. Our new dress making patterns had finally arrived and fitted in nicely. One thousand patterns in all covering mens, women’s, children’s, fancy dress, homeware and pets. absolutely fantastic.

The knitting and crochet workshops are now running every Saturday morning and the new stitch and bitch group started to run on a Thursday morning which had an excellent turnout. I’d like to say a big thankyou to photographer Caroline Hart who took some great photos during our Stitch and Bitch group.


I still put aside an hour or two a week to do some sewing myself. I’ve had a lovely bright and colourful layer cake by moda (love moda designs) so now I’m going to make a wall hanging for the haberdashery. I’m a little unsure how many block to do at the moment maybe 9?  I don’t know, but here’s my first block of the quilt…..a pinwheel.


Next I think I’m going I’m going to do a disappearing pin wheel block or a coin block.


See you this time next week. xxxx
