Patchwork Dreamer is growing up and filling out fast

Good morning blog world have been missing in action for a while due to lots of inputting on the fast growing web site.  So since last we met I have put on 39 Kona solids
Photographed and put on the cottons, really pleased with this section as you can see the colours well even better if you magnify it.


Pins and needles are on
So things are progressing nicely.  Got a delievery of batting which I need to put on and this lovely collection Ashbury Heights by Riley Blake.
Lots more to come including pre cuts from Robert Kaufman (Hexies, Roll ups and charm squares) batiks and lots more between now and January next year. Have organised the advertising so will defo be launched for September the 20th as that when the mag comes out!  
The lovely people at Quintdown web have been hard at work making a fabby (well I think so) web site.  Here are some of the touches which make it special.  For those who don't know what a fat 1/4 is this little piccy should help.
 And I just adore my little shopping basket.
 And for those that shop by colour rather than collection (me!) pick a colour and away you go.  Have got some work to do on this section too.
And finally this is the logo to be looking out for.  Its all getting very exciting and real now, gulp:)
Sew if you have time come and look round at Patchworkdreamer.co.uk The site is not live yet but if you see something you fancy ring and I can make it yours........

Phew well I think thats all the prints on the web site for now.  Has taken some time and I am going to have to redo some of the pictures as I am not completely happy with them.  So the last collection I put on this evening was So Happy Together by Dreena Rutter it is sooo pretty
 And so next are the Kona solids, I've got quite a few so this could take a while!

I have even signed up to twitter!  Not really sure what to do on it so I am a bit of a twit on Twitter!!!!  Pinterest is lots of fun though, take a look as I have put up lots of pictures of fabrics current and in the furture.

A little sewing to break up the computer stuff

Wow how do people imput information onto computers all day, its so tiring!  But lots more lovely fabrics are on  the web site now.
 This lovely range is called Textures and is by Angela Walters for Art Gallery fabrics.
And Bijoux by Bari J for Blend.
And sew to take a little break from the computer I decided to make an infinity cowl got all the instructions ftom luvinthemomyhood.com and spent a pleasent hour sewing this morning.

And I am quite pleased with the result.  This momy is not nearly as glam as the momyhood momys but to be fare I did have the back of the camera next to a mirror so that I could see the picture I was taking! If you decide to follow my lead I suggest you make sure all your fat 1/4's are the same size by putting them on top of each other and cutting them because fat 1/4's do vary.  I used Kona solids inside mine to keep the cost down.  You will need 6 fat 1/4's to make this, download the instructions and an hour later you will have a finished item.  Think I will be making some more of these for the winter (yes I know it is August) but it is just the sort of thing I like to wear.  OK better go, if you would like to and have time have a look at the WIP that is my web site and see how I am progressing and to see if there are any fabrics you like.
