This is THE best day of the year..................Why you ask????? Because.........
My book arrived to my front door, in the flesh! Excited are you Natalie you ask?
YOU BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETCHA! I ripped open the box to find my book in all its completion, raced and put the kettle on, made a cuppa, grabbed the bikkie jar and plonked my butt down and enjoyed.
With only me home I had to take my own photo, in the bathroom because it is pouring here and the light in the house sucks at the moment so don't I look fabulous!! LOL.....Please excuse the PJ's hangin on the left.
Now I do believe that orders are starting to go out to the stores and I have had a tremendous amount of support from quite a few stores that stock my designs. So thank you so much :-)
I have listed below the shops that I know of at present, that are taking orders for my book.
So in no particular order;
If any of these stores are local, pop in and say hello or shoot them an email. If you like to support your local Patchwork shop, they can contact Creative Abundance for ordering. Just click on the wholesale enquiries link at the top left hand side of my blog.
And for more excitement I have completed 2 new designs. Patterns are waiting patiently to be typed which I shall do tomorrow. Now I promised a design to a special little girl by the name of Lucy. You may remember a post I did about Lucy's 1st birthday party. Her mum "Amanda" did it in a Ladybird theme and Lucy also received my "Ladybirds on Patrol" quilt that Amanda had made for her. Lucy is a real sweetie so I designed this new pattern and named it after Lucy. I got there eventually Amanda but changed the name slightly, hope you like it!
"Lucy's Ladybird Adventure" Not the best piccie. Still light issues!
A sweet satchel bag and a matching coin purse to keep all her millions in!! LOL......Incase you can't read what's on the bag it says "The luck of a Ladybird is always with me" The main fabric is from the "Meadow Sweet" fabric range which is so lovely. I picked this up from JukeJema Quilting Barn which is having a 30% off sale at the moment. So that's excitement!! Grab your shopping trolley girls.
And to finish off this very long but very exciting post here is design number 2.
I am mad about these critters, being in the bird family and you know how I feel about birds. I also have a nice collection of these guys too!
I will be photographing them again so I will share a better pic with you soon. I am hoping that these 2 new patterns will be ready by next week.
So that's my day of total excitement!!
Hope yours was excitement plus too!
See you soon
There's nothing better than being "In Stitches"
