Cotton Floss Book Review (241)

This is our newest only book that we're carrying...that's because Natalie emailed me asking me if I'd be one of the few Canadian shoppes carrying it - I, with pleasure accepted the far it hasn't been to hard to accept this challenge as I sold out of the book from this post.

I love it!! It's a true gem and would make a great addition to your sewing/quilting and embroidery books in your present stash.

Cinderberry Stitches, Natalie's company has an amazing way of putting whimsy into everything...she makes you believe in fairies and the cuties in life and takes you back to being a little girl with dreams. All of these come through in the stitcheries she and her team design.

All 12 projects are in full colours and full sizes so no photocopying - thank YOU Natalie:)

Her photos throughout the book are sew inspiring and absolutely delightful...



Sew if you feel so inclined to purchase it for your stash...I have more copies on order so not to worry:) they are on their way...


Cotton Floss (234)

Sew remember when I got that email from Leanne Beasley (the lady who designed Journey of a Quilter) regarding her magazine? Well what a huge success the Vignette has been...I can't keep it on the shelves, I have another batch on order:) Good news right?

I wanted to sit down and take some pictures throughout the first two issues of the magazine but I sold them too quickly lol a good problem to have :) When the next batch comes in I'll blog a bit more detailed about them so you know what you might be missing - EVERYTHING like patterns, recipes, amazing pictures and projects, her completely heart squeezing block of the month and sew much more...

But this entry is about another surprise and new addition to Pastimes Online's perfect pile of quilty goodies.

Natalie of Cinderberry Stitches emailed me asking if I'd be interesting in carrying her new book. It's sew new it's just hitting the post sometime in May!

It's a new book by Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches (she designed Truly Scrumptious, one of this year's boms) called Cotton Floss, A gathering of stitched projects to charm and fascinate.

Those of you who love her style and follow her amazingly beautiful blog, must have this book !!

If you want to be added to the growing list of "reserve a copy for me please" then email me and I'll add you.

The cost of the book hasn't been finalized yet with shipping from Australia but it will be somewhere around $30 plus shipping from me to you for 64 beautifully coloured pages of musings from Natalie to motivate you and spur your inner stitching, sewing and quilting beauty.

Who knows, I may even pick some silks to coordinate with projects inside the book :)

Until next time, stay happy and creative
