We're Officially Canadian!

Phew what an exciting week it's been! On the 8th December (just a little over 6 months from when we sent off our applications) we joined 43 other people from 20 different countries in the center of Halifax, Nova Scotia to take our oaths and become Canadian Citizens! Luckily my mum is on holiday with us visiting from the UK so she was able to join us along with Paul's family for the ceremony and afterwards in our celebrations. When we applied the CIC website said it would take 2 yrs to process applications so it's not really sunk in yet that we've finished everything already. We're now looking forward to our first Christmas as Canadians!!

Gorgeous Tula Pink Hardware!

Have you seen the stunning new Tula Pink Hardware? They were all launched at quilt market and as soon as I saw them I knew i'd have to order them for me to use and to sell on my website!

I've been waiting for their individual packaged weights so I could work out the shipping rates for sending each of them worldwide before listing them.. but it's been a couple of weeks and I didn't want to delay my ordering any longer so I've decided to add pre orders for each of them to the website now and then charge the shipping separately later when they come in and I can weigh them myself. 

I'm placing my only Pre Christmas order for them this Friday 27th November at 3pm Atlantic Canada time so head over to the shop now if you would like to pre order any from the first shipment :)

Back in stock!

Squeeeee! I love Tula mail days - especially when they're full of my favourites.

All these Eden Mosaic colourways sold out soo fast when they first arrived in September I didn't even have any left for me to use. This time though I have yardage a plenty available after sending out all your back orders... both to list in the shop and for me to use. My only problem is they're all soo delicious I can't decide which one to use first!
Along with the gorgeous mosaics came our long awaited restock of Tree of Life in Cinnamon and a new addition to our True Colours stock - Making waves in Ink.
What have you all made with your yards? I see both an Olive and a Lucy from the new Swoon Vintage bag pattern collection happening in my near future :D


P.S If your stashes start to run low you can find them all listed in my new online shop here
