Just an average Friday night... (in Venice!)
Come, frolic with me!

Giveaway Time & A Feast of Colour!

(Giveaway winners posted at bottom of post.)

Each year at Australian Quilt Market, I relish the opportunity to catch up with friends and to see what wonderful new delights they have for us to create with!
Meet Katie, of Cottage Garden Threads.

Cottage Garden Threads hand dye such an incredible colour pallette of variegated cotton and woolen thread, felts and trims... just to cast your eyes across the range of colour is a treat!
Looking, however, is never enough... heehee! Don't you wish you had all of these in your collection at home?

In addition to this amazing wall of colour, there are now NEW Colour Collections to enjoy.
There are 12 Colour Collection packs available. Each has 6 limited edtion skeins of variegated, stranded cotton and a gorgeous stitchery design included.
