Hi , I've been a very very bad blogger. I've been so caught up in running the shop that I've neglected to keep updating my news. The shop has been very busy this past few weeks with customers getting ready for Christmas, the Chritsmas lights are now up outside the shop and I hope to get the tree up this week.
I'm going to be at the Strathpeffer Pavillion next week for their craft show, Thursday 8th & Friday 9th , I will have some little things for sale but mostly I will be there to promote the shop and workshops. Workshop list is now available to view online on my website.
I'm trying my hand at some hand quilting , not through choice but because I went over a pin whilst trying to get a quilt finished AAARRRRGGGG!!!!!! so now my machine is back in the cupboard untill I can get it fixed.
I love hand stitching but not when Im under pressure to get it finished before Daughter gets home from Uni as its part of her Xmas present! I can foresee allot of late nights!

2 weeks in ..................

Well that's the shop open two weeks and I'm glad to say Ive been very busy. Ive enjoyed meeting Pats customers and also new customers to the shop. The workshop is progressing well and I hope to have the classes up and running by the end of March.

I'm still managing to find time for a little sewing while shop is quiet
This is one of two little wall hangings for a little girls room that I have to finish.
I think I might add some buttons to finish it off

Due to the wonderfully efficient people at BT who have lost all record of my order I will not have a phone line in the shop for the first two weeks. This of course means that I will not be able to accept any chip and pin or credit card transactions, I'm so sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.Since starting this project Ive learnt a very valuable lesson , never believe any time frame that may be offered to you!!!

Unfortunatly due to delays caused by the weather etc I've had to put back the opening to the 5th February. My apologies to everyone who read one of my flyers and was expecting it to be open on the 29th of January. It has been a very frustrating time with all the hold-ups but we are on track now.
