Life is a Box of Chocolates

You never know what you are going to get..................

We have had a busy couple of weeks at home and in the shop and I have lots to talk about but I will not bore you with lots of details.  Below is a beautiful quilt made  by Pamela Jones using Kaffe Fasset Fabrics in a simple  pattern (the fabrics shine  through) , oh and the quilting is just beautiful on the quilt too.
Here is some Quilting that Pamela has been doing for our customers you can see more of her quilting at her blog  Quilting with Rosie
 We had our club day at the shop and this month I was demonstrating easy English Paper Piecing with the help of Sue Daley's templates, Patterns and ideas from Patchwork with Busyfingers

Yummy Yummy 2 inch Apple Core in Kaffe Fabric

 Love the little pink Rotary cutting matt available at our shop here Actually all the Patchwork with Busyfingers merchandise is available through Kimz.

Below is Gloria's beautiful hexagon quilt that she has made all by hand and quilting by hand.
 We also have some very talented young sewers in our shop and this is Kate with another gorgeous skirt that she has made in our Dressmaking classes with the very experienced Narelle Thamm.
Kate has been coming to class on a Saturday morning and she is very very good and loves sewing.

 This is Ruby and she is making a dressing gown for herself for the upcoming winter here on the Sunshine Coast Ruby loves using the overlocker as it is quicker and gives a beautiful professional finish to your garments.
 Jordan loves coming to sewing classes too with Narelle she is making a dress to wear.
 So we have been busy in the shop and love having classes in the huge class room and in air conditioned comfort.  

Till next time


  1. Love the shirt Kim, make sure you post a pic of the applecore quilt once it's all pieced. I love the colours, and once again Pam has pieced a beautiful Kaffe fabric quilt. She really has an eye for colour, the customers are lucky to have her be so handy, she really is a trailblazer.
