Sorry I have been so quiet lately, no excuse really just slack.
 I am back in the shop three to four days again and it is nice to catch up on jobs that there is never enough time to do. Styling being one of them, this is one of my favourite jobs so I will put it before most things (not customers) Next I will get on to getting some new patterns made up and some freebies of past patterns that are archived.
Anyway today's photo's are of my new front window display (hard to photograph) with 60cm Liberty cushions that Effie made up for me. Effie will make up any size cushions to order from our fabrics and it cost $25 (no piping)

Also yesterday's flower purchase from the market, it was hard to pass these white single chrysanthemums.

My Incredibly talented daughter Emma has designed some great new cards for Patchwork. Em is a Fashion designer but is working for me at the moment at Scarlet and Freelancing while she waits for her first baby. Check out her blog here.
It was so hard to pick one so I got three different ones that she designed, and left one for spare.

Maybe a future Frankie ad. Hope you like them as much as I do.

I feel like I have been away all this year and can not believe it, it is nearly winter.
I am now back after my trip to Perth to see Mum after she broke her hip. Unfortunately it is an epidemic as she was surrounded by women of the same age that had done the same. Luckily she is on the mend and has a very supportive family. I am hoping she will be OK to fly in a couple of months, so she can spend some time with me and see our new family additions.
I am very fortunate to soon become a Grandmother X 2, we are so happy as both our girls are expecting babies in June and July. So Mum is very excited too and hopes to visit when they are born.
Meanwhile I am back at the shop and there are so many new fabrics that have come in.  I particularly love the Nani Iro and hope to get busy and make some blankets with them by just hemming them.

 I will leave you with a photo of Mum in the hospital.
