That was the title in my inbox this morning to confirm that the next shipment of Kokka and Echino fabrics arrive next week. This shipment has been a long time coming. Heather Ross, buses, a bit of geek chic and some old favourites back again.
I have all the new Heather Ross fabrics, plus there will be robots, monkeys, more babushkas, nani iro prints, lots of echino fabric and patterns.
But, in the meantime, this weekend I am off down south to Waimate to pack up my Dad's house. Dad has moved to Nelson and is not fit or well enough to do this himself. I am looking forward to seeing my sisters and brother but not necessarily the pack up part.
And next Saturday I will be in Palmy Vegas. The Palmerston North Fabric a Brac is being held on Saturday 28 August for all you fabric-a-holics out there. If you have not been to one of these markets before - they are amazing. Now if you are reader of my blog and you come along to the fabric-a-brac or any other market I am at, don't be shy, please say hi.
So if there is not a lot of blogging going on around here I hope you understand!
Welcome to my blog. I am a mother of two teenagers and married to my high school sweet heart. I love crafting, sewing and making things. I love baking but dislike cooking (Luckily Steven is the most amazing cook). I have been fortunate to set up and run Stitchbird, my shop and love being able to work with fabrics and lovely crafty and handmade things every day.
