Ahoy Me Hearties and Shiver Me Timbers!

This week with the sun shining for a while, we have seen lots of boats back in the water along our Cornish Coast, so we thought we'd take a look at all things boat and sea related.

Just on cue are two new fabrics from Lewis and Irene, Small Things- Coastal plus a gorgeous Bunting Panel which is also available as a kit.

Coast by Sally Payne for Dashwood Studios has a soft hued colour palette with fish, gulls and boats. We love her quirky fun designs. Plus many other sea themed fabrics and kits to keep you all busy.

We have also just taken delivery of the latest issue of Quiltmania Magazine. Full of gorgeous inspiration and patterns.

Our talented Mary has been busy organising a Quilt and Textile Show at St Stythians Parish Church, Stithians TR3 7DH. It will run 1030-430 each day, Saturday May 27th - Monday May 29th, over the Whitsun Bank Holiday Weekend, so if you live local or are visiting that weekend, pop in and say hello. Only £2 entry and there are stalls, a raffle and light refreshments.

Have a wonderful week that is full of love, laughter and sewing!
Best wishes
Sally & the girls
