Well ... Here we are into June ... Its winter (Darn it! ) and I'm wondering ... Where the heck did the first half of the year go?!?! 2020 sure has thrown us some curve balls, hasn't it? Here in south-east Queensland where we live, things are slowly starting to return to a form of 'normal' & we're able to meet up with friends again & visit some of our favourite businesses. I popped in to my Home-Away-From-Home The Quilters Angel to catch up with Marion & Steph this week, which was a happy/sad catch up. You see, Marion & Steph have made the difficult decision to close the doors of their bricks & mortar shop at the end of this month. The Quilters Angel will DEFINITELY still be operating but the enforced closure during the zombie apocalypse was a time of reevaluating for this lovely Mother/Daughter dynamic duo. They will continue to operate the online shop but will also be organising lots of exciting new events, workshops, retreats, pop-up shops & craft show stands, as well as running even more wonderful Block Of the Month programs, stitching clubs & so many more exciting things. So while I'm sad that I won't get to pop into their pretty shop, I'm pretty excited to join in their new adventures!
Dotties are always good for sashings & bindings, the teal spots jumped into my arms, the blue stripes & paisley were too pretty to leave behind. If you want to keep up with Marion & Steph's new adventures with The Quilters Angel, visit the website & sign up for their newsletter. Big thanks to this lovely pair, too, for continuing to support & encourage my design adventures, as well as being valued friends & important members of my tribe.
