Good morning a calmer post today for www.patchworkdreamer.co.uk!  I think we have irond out all the funny little bits on the web site and hopefully you will/have enjoyed looking and having a play with the design wall, please let me know what you think.
Well today I am waiting for a delievery of precuts and the last two fabrics from the Bella range from Blend plus a Candy pink Kona ohh I do like delieverys!


I have a top tip for you which I picked up from the Farmers Wife quilt facebook page.  Have your books sprial bound so they stay open when you are following instructions!  I had these two done at Staples and it cost me £9.14 for the both.  They do have to cut the spine off so don't take books whose text etc. is too close to the spine, but I think it is a brilliant idea.  I wonder if they could do magazines putting a few together at once mmm got me thinking now (always a dangerous thing) Have you noticed at www.Patchworkdreamer.co.uk that we have a free patterns section?  This o…

Patchwork Dreamer is starting to have sleepless nights, the "on button" is so close to being pressed on the web site!
I have been very busy putting things like this on the site.
 Anyone who follows our Face Book page will know I got a bit over excited about this fabric range, it is stunning,  Batiks by Michael Miller.
Then there has been the very boring but necessary Meta stuff (lots of mindless typing with no colour in sight)
So I broke it up by adding these!

Lots of stock has arrived since my last blog includding a few pieces of pre-cuts from Michael Miller I love this batik roll-up.
 Actually I love all the fabrics, just hope others do to, enough to buy.......
Now who is thinking about Christmas?  How about a little Christmas wall hanging?  Take a look


Well that's it for me today, let me know what you think and watch this space for the launch.
