Hello and welcome to Gum Valley Patchwork.
As we head into the cooler weather of mid Autumn, it is ideal for stitching up a storm in the evenings and planning for those winter projects. My thoughts are also wandering as I am looking forward to getting back out in the garden for some very overdue tidying up. The roses are looking straggly and the agapanthus are needing to be dead headed. I still have plenty to keep me occupied in the shop with a steady flow of fabric arriving over recent weeks, which means lots of cutting and folding, as well as planning for new projects.
Recent arrivals include: 'Bluebird of Happiness' by Janet Rae Nesbitt for Henry Glass Fabrics; 'Carolina Lilies' by Robin Pickens for Moda Fabrics; 'Newport' by Minick & Simpson for Moda Fabrics; 'My heart belongs to my farmer' by Poppie Cotton; 'Crocodile Smiles' by Meags & Me; 'Chick-a-doodle Doo' by Poppie Cotton; 'Bonheur du Jour' by French General for Moda Fabrics; and 'New Beginnings' by Lisa Dolson, Dashwood Studio . It's great to see the shelves full again after delays due to Covid!
Due to arrive over the coming months are:
'Flirt' by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics (9 prints & the panel in April/May); 'Time Well Spent' by Janet Rae Nesbitt for Henry Glass Fabrics (April/May); 'Roar-Some' by Jilly P (Dashwood Studio) (May); 'Imagine' by Rebecca Jones (May); 'House & Home' by Poppie Cotton (May / June); 'Flowerpot' by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics (May / June); 'Countdown to Christmas' by Janet Rae Nesbitt for Henry Glass Fabrics (June); 'Chic Escape' by Tilda (June); 'Chambray Dots' by Tilda (June/July); 'D is for Dream' a flannel collection (September); 'ABC….xyz' by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda Fabrics (September/October); 'Hometown' by Tilda (October); and 'Birdsong' by Gingiber for Moda Fabrics (October/November)
Please remember that if you are after something in particular and can't find it, please contact me and I will try to help you out. And if I don't stock it I might know someone who does.
Til next time....
