Giveaway Time!!

Like many I am on the countdown to the new school term at the start of September (do you know how many sleeps it is!!!).
I am spending my days imagining all the time I am going to find on my hands when I can get back into the swing of things with Patch and perhaps even *gasp* sew!!
(my machine has not had the cover off since the end of July and I am getting serious withdrawal symptoms...)
Over the last month I have been listing lots of new fabrics by Clothworks....with Avalon and Into the Woods especially making me think of autumn crafting.

into the woods
hungarian blue

All we ask is that you link back to this post on your blog or facebook page and that you are a follower of our blog.....
Can't wait to hear what you would make and...... Good Luck!!!

We have just taken delivery of yet another lovely Clothworks design.
This time it is the bright floral design Avalon by Pamela Mostek.
Clothworks have provided a free download for a quilt pattern, 
but these fun prints would make fantastic dresses and skirts for a little girls autumn/winter wardrobe.......

These designs are available on the website here.

The new Amy Butler collection 'Soul Blossoms' will be available at the end of the year. I think this collection is my very favourite of Amy's.

I have been trying to decide which of the designs Patch will initially be stocking.

I say initially as I am trying to show restraint. I am rapidly running out of space...when the space issue has been sorted then I can stock more,
including the fabulous home deco range and the laminated fabrics too.
Its not easy...I love them all...and I am trying to choose designs that compliment each other....
Sadly, the last word from my rep was that the gorgeous Amy Butler threads  (that are being advertised in some UK publications), are not going to be available through the UK distributor...but watch this space..that could change!!

a dress is not just for christmas......

Remember these fabrics??
They are by Clothworks - Twelve Days of Christmas.
I can think of so many uses for these, table coverings, stockings, tree decorations..but how about this....
                                                                                             (picture taken from Clothworks)
This dress was blogged here...over at the Clothworks blog.
I love how some of the Christmas designs work as stand alone non festive fabrics.
The Twelve days of Christmas designs are available here, along with other ranges for Christmas crafting.

Katy over at I'm a Ginger Monkey is dedicating this weeks blog posts to fabric sellers in the UK.
Today is all about me!!!!
I have been a long time fan of Katy's blog, and quilts and tattoos (hmm I am creeping myself out a bit there..I am NOT a stalker honest!!!) so I am honoured to be featured......

Katy's blog is full of inspiration and advice, and as if producing fabulous quilts wasn't enough, Katy is also involved in the new quilting magazine Fat Quarterly
