Times, they are a’changing

Today was a lovely day spent with good friends…….chatting, laughing, eating and just being together……the best of days!

Yep, Jen and Bloss came for a visit…….and we had a grand ol’ time….I had made some little pressies for Jen to take home….

…lavender infused pears…….that I made with instructions from Tilda herself…… because pears and Tilda…..what could be better?

We never did get any stitching done, but we reviewed all our latest projects and as times, they are a’changing,  Jen offered to come and help me with a makeover……..have you noticed the gorgeous new dress they helped me choose???  I know I say red is my favourite colour, but it always followed my super-all-time-favourite…..cornflower blue!    Now I can dress in it every day!

Sugarlane Quilts is taking a backseat…..I’m now Sugarlane Designs…..I’ve been sneaking it in over the past month or so, on photos, just to see how it looks!!!  You see, behind the scenes, I’ve been designing some stitchy things and some are coming up in Patchwork and Stitching really soon……  I’ll still be releasing Dawn’s and my free ‘Seasons Of'” BOM and other little goodies, but there’ll be lots more new things happening too….keep watching to see it all unfold! 

I always thought I was a quilter, a patchworker, a lover of all things pretty….and I am, BUT when I really analysed what I did most…it was stitchery and stitching designs……funny how you evolve and don’t even notice it.  So watch me changing, firstly with my pretty new cornflower blue dress, and lots of new accessories will be added as the time is right!

I’ve got a few new designs just itching to come to life, but tonight,  I just needed some stitchy therapy with a good friend……..
