New Fabrics and Clean!

I have spent this weekend at the shop..I have been cleaning like a mad woman! Over the Christmas period, we had terrible winds here in Tassie and so gone are the layers of dust and dirt and grime...the cobwebs, (and hopefully their makers) and the old blah stock!! Just the outside and the windows to go..a big job in itself..but I must be aware that I still cannot overdo the work..even if I am feeling really well..I am not sure if it is the heat..or just *time* but I am off the Narcotics..finally..and I kid you not, its like walking out of a dark foggy forest and into the bright sunshine..i am so happy!! Just can't overwork...Bring on 2014!

Our group, "In Stitches" have a birthday group..where you nominate what you would like for your birthday fabrics and on your will receive up to 18 fat quarters to make something...this year mine colour was RED..I am in my red phase, and I was thrilled with my F/Qs. On Dec 27th Ray and I went to our shack in the highlands for a week long break..thank goodness I took my sewing..and my RED the weather was disgusting..wind rain and even some snow!!! what??? I made my birthday quilt...i love it..just the borders to go...

I have received in store, Anni Downs new fabric...BUTTON TREE LANE...oh my word girls..if you haven't seen this gorgeous muted colours with a sewing is the panel and if you would like to see can find it on my website here.....

I still have not worked out the comments part of this blog since my return..I go to the help page, and get the instructions, but then it seems that I have some of the instructions missing from that particular help are on mine...any ideas??
