Smiley Post :)

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all had a good week.  The weather has been a little chilly here in the mornings, but lovely outside.  Towards the end of next week, it's the local show, so naturally, rain is on the  Don't get me wrong, I love rain.....but I much prefer it at night, leaving us with lovely days to enjoy the sunshine...ahhhh, if

This post is very much a big :) smiley :) post, from start to finish, so please, keep this in mind as you continue reading......

.....don't you just :) 'hate' :) some!!!   Recently, I had a visit from a couple of ladies who were back again for a few weeks holiday, and they called in to say hi, and check which craft shops I recommend.  I mentioned the ones I was aware of between Bundaberg and Maryborough, including a new one which has opened in Childers. Because of my shop, I don't get into town very often, and to date, have not seen the Childers shop, however I know the lady who is working there, assisting the owner.

Now, keep in mind the two holiday makers would say hi every day when they went past my shop......on one particular day, they said hi, but I sensed something was going on, so before they could say another word, I said you have been to Childers, haven't you!!!!  Of course, the reply was yes......I haven't spoken to them!!!  No, that's not true.  The ladies told me they met the owner, and they loved the chat, and the  range of fabrics and craft patterns available.

The shop itself, is called 'Patchwork Avenue' , and is located in what is locally known as The Old Butcher Shop.  Margaret, the owner, is also the owner of 'Patchwork Paradise'  in Rockhamptom, so anyone familiar with this shop, will know what to expect.  To date, I haven't heard of it having a website, but remember, setting up a business takes time, and lots of things have to wait in line to be organized.......I have had my shop open over 9 years, and have had a blog for only 6!!   I wish Margaret well in her new business.  Okay....I can stop the :) smiley :) business,, I didn't say that through gritting teeth!!!!!  :)

What have I been up to this week?  I have been cutting out town bags, and Tea cosies .

This picture shows my tea pot collection, which I use in the tea cosies for display......

The tea cosies will fit a 4-6 cup tea pot, and also have a base of the same fabric, and are padded.  They are also listed on my online shop .

Well, I think that is enough for now.  I'll be back again soon.  Remember, if you happen to get to Childers, calll in to 'Patchwork Avenue' , and say hi.  Happy crafting, Jenny
