Currently in store I have a wide range of 1930's reproduction fabrics as well as lots of 1860' s to 1880's reproduction fabrics - all fabrics in store are $22 per metre so with 21% off until August 31st that makes them $17.38 per metre.

This week I celebrated 21 years teaching my weekly Tuesday class - I started teaching a small group of local ladies 21 years ago when Sebastian was just 1 month old - our class room back then was the old tennis club house - wow how things have changed in 21 years. One thing hasn't changed and thats my love of sharing my knowledge and skills with anyone who would like to learn. This Tuesday I was very spoilt by my class receiving some gorgeous flowers along with balloons and a very yummy birthday cake which we ate for morning tea. Nicole was home so she prepared a very nice finger food lunch which we all shared in the olive grove outside in the sunshine. It was a lovely day being surrounded by so many gorgeous ladies - (as are most days of my life)- I just adore them coming to class each week - I often wonder what life would be like if I wasn't doing what I do and love.
Thanks for helping me celebrate 21 years - and thanks to all those ladies who have supported me over those 21 years. Kerry
I am so sorry - so slack - I really should have posted these retreat shots earlier but hey better late then never - I have been off the air for nearly a week with the final touches of our reno's going on - I was unable to make my way to my office, with the painter in and the floor sander we weren't allowed in the new section at all.
A couple of weeks back I was very lucky to have some other blogging friends and their friends, join me for their annual retreat - we had a great weekend with some terrific quilts made over the two days - see if you can pick the bloggers !!!!!!!!!!
These are a few other quilts from another retreat - Vanessa and Lousie leaving with big smiles and a completed shaggy quilt plus Vanessa's quilt top
This was Suzie's first retreat with me but certainly not her last - well done Suzie your quilt was looking great - hope you get it quilted in time for Fathers Day
I really need to share some photos of lots of quilts that have been made over the past couple of weeks here at "The Cottage on the Hill" - as usual for this time of the year I have retreat after retreat - I am so blessed to be working and sharing my love of patchwork with so many wonderful ladies. My retreats are 13 years old this year, so for a lot of ladies they have made heaps of trips to visit me year after year. Here a re a few photos that were taken a couple of weeks back.
These stars were just gorgeous in the 1930's prints
Red, Red and more red - how good did these look What a smile - Jacki was certainly very pleased with her efforts - her quilt looked great All these quilts looked fabo - part of the group had already left before this was taken - looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
Just here to share with you some new flannels that arrived in store a short while back - these fabrics are divine - especially if you like purple. "Flannel Rose" by Windham fabrics - there are 24 different fabrics in the range - some gorgeous rich purples, mutted greens, biege with large roses, some yummy chocolate browns as well as pinks. They have already been very popular - so if they look like you then I would think about purchasing some very soon.
These fabrics are all $22 per metre - all those ladies in the flannel club will receive samples in the mail soon.
