Welcome back to a work in progress (WIP) to us patchworkers.  I think with some more help from Alison at Quintdown web I have sorted out how to get all this lovely fabric onto the web site!  I have managet to get Hooty Hoot returns
and Carnaby Street
on this evening!  The pictures were taken during the day to try and get as true a color as I can and the techy stuff done this evening, I've got the prices on an everything :) If you take a sneeky look at the web site (Patchworkdreamer.co.uk) you will see I have lined up a couple more collections to do tomorrow evening.  I'm cooking on gas now!  Have been thinking about making a quick quilt out of all the Kona solids I have just to show them off at groups and markets/fairs.  Currently have 39 colors, was thinking a disappearing nine patch using the black in the four outside blocks which get sliced through to act as a kind of boarder/sashing to the other colors.  Humm what do you think?  What would you do? Gotta go get a cup of tea now sew have fun and I will see you in a couple of days when I should have even more on the web site, getting excited by it all now.

Welcome to the first blog on Patchwork Dreamers blogg spot.  I am starting a new and exciting venture by setting up an on line Patchwork and quilting web shop.  I have given up childminding to give my full attention to this adventure.  My computer skills are limited (very!) and so the lovely people at quintdownweb are building the shop for me.  Yesterday Alison from quintdown web came to try and teach me the back office work of the site, bless her I am not a natural.  So bare with the web page it could look a bit funny as I home my skills.  Now for the intresting bits what am I going to stock well I have at the moment 38 Kona solids accross the color spectrum, Riley Blake with Hooty hoot returns, So Happy, and Geekly Chic.  Art gallery fabrics Bijoux, Textures, Colour me Retro and Carnaby Street. Blends Bonjour Mon Ami, Field day, Gossamer and Bella. YLI hand and machine quilting threads, quilting stencils, Lame Bias tape and all sorts of John James needles.  Lots of stock due in over the next couple of months so keep an eye on me to see what I am up too.  If there is anything you would like me to stock just message me on here, facebook page or text and I will do my best and will get back to you.
