My last Newsletter for the year…..
I know I say this every year but l’ll say it again, the year has flown. Things start winding down a little shop wise, but family wise it gets busy. Our little family has 3 birthdays between now and Christmas, December 1stl break out the boxes of Christmas decorations and tart up our home. Love Christmas, the kids come home on Christmas Eve and stay a couple of nights so it’s one of my fav times of the year.
I have had a great year in the shop, have been invited to many quilt shows and stitching days, love packing up my little shop for a weekend of work. I also rediscovered the joys of hand piecing. The 3rdquilt l ever made was hand pieced, l have been quilting for 22 years so it’s been a while. I love having hand sewing to do whilst working away from the shop.
It’s a lovely time of year in the garden, recently replanted my front garden to make it into more a cottage garden. Decided the Hydrangeas were taking over and stopping other things from growing. They only look great for about 6 moths of the year. I have relocated them in the back garden, looks like l’ve only lost one. I do a walk around every night, it’s amazing the changes you see each time you take a wander.
l am hosting a Snuggly Quilts Day on November 8th, if you can help shoot me off a message, the more the merrier, it’s a great cause.
A reminder l will be closing for 2018 on Thursday December 13thand reopening for 2019 on January 15th, 2019. Mrs Martin’s Quilt Shop celebrates 15 years in business in March.
A big thank you for making my year a wonderful one.
