Giving Thanks

So this weekend is Thanksgiving in the USA and as I have met lots of friends stateside through blogging, tweeting and IG, I do feel it appropriate to have a little celebration here too!

Not forgetting what Thanksgiving is all about my sewing bestie Katy has written an awesome post on been thankful.

Right now I'm thankful that my parents have taken baby Hunter out for the day so I can have a computer day to catch up with things for Simply Solids and to blog! I'm thankful that the aforementioned Katy collected a quilt from the long arm quilter for me yesterday and is machine sewing the front of the binding down for me today. I'm also thankful that blogging brought us together with the rest of the Kitchen Guild gang who quite frankly keep me sane!!

Here's a picture of the quilt Katy collected for me:

It's the bow-tie quilt done in Heather Ross Far Far Away and Essex Linen, for a lovely friend I might add!

I'm also working on another quilt right now:

This will be the Orange Soda quilt in Tufted Tweets and is heading my brothers way!

I'm also very grateful for the Hoop I received today in the Hoop-La swap on Flickr. I was stalked very well by it's maker don't you think? It's just perfect!!

Finally to celebrate Thanksgiving I'm offereing 15% off everything in Simply Solids from Friday 23rd - Mon 26th November 2012 with code: turkey. Enjoy!

busy busy busy

So it's been a while. Again. I'm sorry!

Hectic will be the best word to describe my life from here on in, I went back to nursing after my maternity leave yesterday - what a shock to the system that was! Enjoyed it though, so I'll keep going!

I got a mahoosive delivery for Simply Solids today that included some pre-cuts of the amazing Cosmo Crickets line Odds & Ends. This line is a sure fire sell out, there's been lots of buzz about it for a while so I'm really pleased I managed to get a hold of some.

I also added these cuties to the shop, Moda Scrap Bags.

At just £12 they're a great treat, or Christmas present lets face it! For yourself or any sewing enthusiast you know. I'd be very happy to find one of these in my stocking on Christmas morning!!

I've also added to the ever expanding stock range with these beauties:

Yes that's right they're Moda Cross Weaves in grey and natural. Thankfully Moda have reprinted them as they went out of stock for a while. 

I've got lots more new lines planned for the shop so please keep an eye out on the 'Coming Soon' section.
