New and Exciting times............

The plan has been in the developmental stage for some time now and finally I can announce that Shiralee Stitches is up and running as a small supplier of patchwork fabrics, patterns and kits, as well as related supplies (the ones I love the most.....tried and tested).

I had my little launch at our local Beef Week here in Casino, NSW. It was a huge success and I have been enjoying my Tuesdays with many ladies joining classes at our local hall since then.

 The girls that know me will see that the bear quilt and those to the right on stage aren't mine, they belonged to another stall.
 Mum..........my hired help!!!!.......She was amazing.......
 So that was my opening stall.

I have been flat out making samples etc, etc and life has been very busy but I am enjoying doing what I love and so it seems like pure pleasure everyday.

Stuff in boxes arrives everyday and I really need to start showing you all the goodies. My good friend, Chookyblue is currently busy in her Chook Shed with this little Bird playing with one of the patterns I have just received in a boxful from the U.S. No doubt she will show it off very soon. I am sure she is "Angling"for a win with this design!!!!!......lol........

More on all this soon.........
