Quiet Time .............

Well it got me - The flu bug floating around our home finally wore me down and I have spent a few days at home quietly recovering. I did get a little sewing done in between stints in bed and pieced together the front of Tommy's Eye Spy Quilt.




I am pleased to say that it is totally from Stash so no need to delve into the shop stock or purchase anything new. It is now ready for sandwiching and quilting. I enjoyed sewing it and choosing all of the little 6 Inch Charm Squares.


The shop displays are coming together slowly and the shop is almost ready for "real"visitors. I have also started to move my studio into it as well which means that the grandchildren can have the spare room as a play room for when they visit.
Here is my MODA Pre-Cut Display. More stock is arriving every week.


I love looking at it all and of course picking it up. There are a few "new developments" happening at my on-line store - But they will be revealed next week. Stay Tuned.....

I apologise to those ladies that have e-mailed me and I haven't replied. I am slowly working my way through them.

HUGS,

You poor old thing you, it's horrible isn't it. Glad that you seem to be on the mend, take it easy for a few more days it tends to sneak back up on you if you don't shake it first go!

Little wonder that the bug found you! I'm sure you've been burning the candle at both ends getting your shops underway. Looking good, though! Love the I-Spy quilt. Makes me "antsy" to make one for my grandbaby. Take care of yourself.
