New Patterns & a Giveaway!

Last week I made another trip with Deb up to Amitie to meet a gorgeous friend who was down from Sydney for the day. Amitie seems to be the place to meet interstate visitors for me at the moment, whose complaining?!!! We had a wonderful day and spent a few hours chatting and messing up the fabric!!!

 Can't mistake that gorgeous checkered floor or the beautiful fabric light shades!
That table was clean until we got there and had fun messing it all up!

Of course I had to add a little to my stash while I was there...


I am so in love with Lecien fabrics right now, and Jen has quite a collection of them. Don't you just adore these dots and stripes? They are so soft!


Anyway, the news is that Jen Kingwell (Amitie owner extraodinaire!) has released six new and beautiful patterns, yay! (click on photo to see closer view)....

Jen Kingwell's new patterns
L to R Top: Steam Punk, Broken Glass, Georgetown on my mind
L to R Bottom: Chain Reaction, Chain of Fools, State Fair

Okay, so what is the giveaway? I am giving the chance for one 'drawn out of the hat' commenter to win two (2) of Jen's new patterns. You get to choose the two you want from the above 6. If you want to see better photo's of these patterns, check them out at Amitie. This giveaway is open to all (Australia and worldwide!) just make sure you have a contactable email. I will choose the winner in a week on Wednesday 21st Nov (Aussie time). Simply leave a comment on this post. Good luck!

Just finding your blog...I LOVE those fabrics...the dots and the strips. I am just starting my "out of the box" thinking of combining fabrics.. I am rather tailored in my structure and dots and strips would be a perfect way to start! And that store..wow..I wish there was only like that in my town! We got nothing!
