Well here we are a week from Christmas
and no Christmas cards have been sent yet again. I had great intentions to write them in October and post them early, oh well maybe next year.
This is my last post until the New Year so I will leave you with the adorable photos of my lovely little grandchildren Lenny
and Xanthe.
Have a safe and Happy Christmas.

While cleaning out the back room I found these rolls of original Heather Ross enzyme washed cottons from many years ago when Heather printed her own designs for her sleepwear range.
I have put them on our website, they are beautiful and 150 wide.
There is
Icecream Truck, Sushi and Free Kittens.

Just opened my new Riley Blake catalogue and found the coolest new fabric designs by the uber talented Melbourne designer Shannon Lamden.
"Hipster" indeed! Love the fabrics!
I think I will be making room for these in our new look shop next year.
Congratulations Shannon!

Lots of Lovely Fabric

We still have lots of lovely fabrics in the shop so don't think we are running out.
The fabric will stay discounted until February.
This will be my last Sunday but Anna will be at the shop updating the website if you are desperate, just give her a call and she will let you in.
