Well it is ages since I last blogged, the only excuse is that we have been exceedingly busy!!!

Anyway this is my one hundreth post - so a little further into this blog you will see the giveaway - which will be drawn on Tuesday next week - so please make some comments.

Well here is the entrance to the new shop - this will eventually be a classroom - all rooms have flower names and this is the Gerber classroom - Stephs favorite flower.

Here is the shop which is called the Rose Room

Isn't it absolutely fabulous - so much fabric - so much space - so light and airy - it is wonderful.

Look at the workshop tables - today they are full of ladies on social stitching. Everyone coming through the door on Tuesday had goodie bags which Angela had put together and they all enjoyed themselves with chocolate cakes and copious amounts of tea and coffee being drunk.

Now to the Giveaway, I made a scarf ages ago - so whoever wins will just have to put it away until the autumn.

Now I have been very good at home and finally finished some projects - a turn around nine patch baby quilt for a baby due on 21st April - it is very very pretty.

Oh poppy could not resist sneaking into the sewing room and cuddling up for a snooze on a quilt!!

Three chickens made for easter pressies - they hold a creme egg underneath - I made them and put eggs in - but one evening working hard in the sewing room I just had to eat one and then low and behold a second one disappeared the same way. I felt awful poor children chickens and no eggs - so I have bought some more and Rob and Angela have told me I must not touch them.

Now look what is finally finished my Barn Raising Quilt - yeh I am so pleased with it - it looks lovely on the bed so now we have to decorate the bedroom!!

And being the very proud Mother I just wanted to put this photo of my gorgeous daughter and fiancee on the blog - I am so proud of them and so lucky to be her mother

Now that is the end of this epic blog - I look forward to lots of comments for the giveaway.
