Huge huge changes at Simply Solids

As of Saturday 15th 2012 Simply Solids is under new ownership!!!
I was offered an amazing job doing what I was doing before the children were born, which I just couldn't turn down and was discussing this with one of my beastie sewing friends, when she announced she would love to buy Simply Solids! Again this was an offer I couldn't refuse as I wasn't going to be able to continue with Simply Solids, and a deal was done!

I guess you are dying to know who the new owner is and the the answer is the amazing Justine from Sew Justine Sew! Justine has so many wonderful ideas and will really bring new life to Simply Solids!

Please promise me you will give her all the fantastic support which you have given me over the last two years. She will be expanding the range of the gorgeous Kona Cotton Solids and also bringing in new ranges of plains, weaves and sketch fabrics.

For the new site handover Justine has got a special offer plan, make sure you get over to her blog to find out all about it, then go buy some fabrics from her!
I will really miss Simply Solids and all my wonderful customers but I know Justine will do an amazing job and it will be in very safe hands xx

Simply Solids is back!

Finally we are back up and running again!

We have had the all clear from Google and our new security firm Sucuri.

The site is more secure than ever and I want to reassure you that no customer details were ever taken and all payment information is taken by paypal and never enters our site.

I have completely rebuilt the site so please let me know if anything is missing!  I am yet to add the clearance fabrics but they will follow soon.

The whole episode has been a nightmare, I feel so violated and it has taken so long to sort out to make sure that all is safe and secure.

Please come and check the new site out and let me know if it is ok.  You may have to empty your cache as browsers sometimes store old pages.

Thank you to all our wonderful customers for your support over this difficult time.

The wonderful and über talented Kitchen Guild

I am so lucky to have such amazing friends!!

Once a month at Lynne's (lilysquilts) the Kitchen Guild meets, we don't do much sewing but we don't half talk about it and everything else under the sun.
The group usually consists of Lynne (lilysquilts), Brioni (flossybossy), Katy (imagingermonkey), Justine (sewjustinesew) and Laura (needlespinsandbakingtins) and me. We always have a perfect day and today was made even more perfect by the addition of two extra members, Amanda (scissorsandthread) and Lucy (charmaboutyou) plus the fact that everyone brought me presents as it was my birthday last week. Did I mention how wonderful these ladies are and how much I love them?! Well they are and I do.

Laura who has got into embroidery big time ever since Aneela Hooey's workshop at the FQ retreat made me this gorgeous hanging in my favourite colours (blue and green) with a cute little bunny as we have two!

Katy made me this mammoth boyfriend pillow! It is gorgeous just
Iike everything she makes and has taken pride of place on my bed, dh won't be too happy!

Brioni gave me goodie bag of pressies in a fab little basket, the cutest ever mug rug, mug, colouring pencils and a luggage tag kit which Freya made up as soon as she got home from school!

Justine made me a fabulous and funky cushion with loads of my fave Melody Miller fabrics, she knew I loved it as she started it at retreat and I was oohing and aahing over it then :) She was also overachiever of the week as she made us all (except katy who obviously wasn't deserving enough) an embroidered hanging to commemorate the FQ retreat.

Amanda got me the most darling thread scissors which I can attach to my machine! I like to imagine that's me as a masked avenger!

Last but not least Lynne made me a signature lilysquilts handbag with of course a Union Jack on the front...

A fab pocket on the back and all made from Mama said Sew - woo hoo!

How is that for an amazing haul of pressies!! I told you they were a talented and lovely bunch! Thank you sooooooooooooo much!

Finishing those UFOs

Way way back in August 2010 I started doing some English Paper Piecing with a French General Jelly Roll while on holiday in Cornwall, I have picked this up and put it down on various holidays since but finally it is reaching completion!!!

It really has been a labour of love with everything being hand sewn that I felt I had to hand quilt it too, but it really is starting to come together.  The inbetween triangles are Moda crossweave which the lovely Katy - Imagingermonkey very kindly gave me as it is now out of production (thank you sweetie), and the background fabric is of course a Kona  Cotton Solid - Seafoam which is sooo pretty and of course available from Simply Solids :-)  The backing fabric is from the Fa la la la range by French General.

I'm feeling really pleased with it, it is amazing what you can do with a jelly roll.  I will post some more detailed pictures and some more of the finished projects I've done over the past few months.

The first few blocks way back when...

The quilt half hand quilted.
