Sydney Craft Show

I'm off to the Craft Show on Friday, didn't make it to any last year so I thought I deserved an outing. And I'm catching up with a friend and staying overnight. Maybe I will get to some fabulous market on Saturday, will have to wait and see. And I might find some interesting new stuff at the Craft show for the shop.
The orders are still coming in, got new stuff from Julie Maccullough of Magic Threads and Jill Maas - they both do fabulous dolls - I have made some of Julie's but haven't yet made any of Jill's.
Fred and Frogs in a Box - this is the new one by Jill Maas, love it and can imagine all the fun embellishing the box.

and this is Snowdrop, isn't she pretty. Another Jill Maas doll. 

I've also got some new stuff from Kookaburra Cottage, including a little girls dress pattern and a toddlers pants and top pattern - both of which I have actually made. I will try and put pics up next week.
Ava Rose - pretty Kookaburra Cottage quilt pattern

Kookaburra Laugh - this would be great for an overseas friend.

I Love My Job

I really do love my job. I get to spend my days surrounded by wonderful patterns for all the things I love best. And I get to associate with fabulous people as well. Not just suppliers and designers, but my customers too. I have some great customers who keep coming back to check out my new stuff. And I'm really grateful to them.
Yesterday I got a new supply of patterns in from Toni Alexander of the Red Boot Quilt Company. Toni does great fun designs. I actually made one of her designs for my granddaughter when she was born, didn't know Toni at the time, and I love it. I have also made up her Best Friends doll pattern and another one of her quilt patterns. 
Best Friends - aren't they cute, and so simple to make.

A new pattern called Puppy Love - perfect for all dog lovers.

And one for the cat lovers out there, called Catnip.

As well as the parcel from Toni I got one from Janet Rowe, or Wildcraft Farm. This is a new one for me. I haven't even had a chance to open it yet, but I will soon, and the patterns will be available. 
I love my job. - The only thing I could wish for is more time to make up lots of the wonderful patterns I have to sell.
