Hi everyone....Just a quick note to let all of you know what has been happening here at Cherry Pie Designs over the last 3 weeks.....we decided to take a short break and hop on over the ditch to New Zealand and visit our son who has recently moved there. One week into our holiday on the Gondola in Queenstown I slipped on ice and broke my leg....the remaining 9 days were spent in Invercargill having surgery on this leg...I am now happy to report that we are home and glad to be here. We cannot thank the management and staff at the Scenic Hotel Group Queenstown... the Queenstown Medical Centre and Lakes District Hospital, the staff at the Bella Vista Motel in Invercargill.... and the fantastic nursing staff and doctors in the Invercargill base hospital for looking after us during this frustrating time....Finally our travel insurance company who organized our flights home (with upgrades), car and driver at the airport and their professionalism........Travel Insurance "Don't leave home without it"!!

At this point I will continue to be open on a Tuesday and Thursday BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. You may have to serve yourself though..LOL

Business will be as usual via the website however service may be a little slower than normal.

Remember if you shop on line and spend over $100 your postage is FREE (within Australia) so why not take advantage of this.


Having a holiday

I am taking some time to have  a little break in the middle of the year.....just lately this has not been achieved because I simply have not made the time.....Well now I have and I cant wait....
We are going off to see our son who has temporarily (I hope) relocated to another country.

Just can't wait to see him and this new place he is calling home at the moment.

And of course I will be taking some stitching with me...

I have made another one of these little cuties and hope to get some more done while we are away.

New fabrics have just arrived from the International Quilt Study Group there is "Provencale"
which is available now online....

Hope the rain is fall for those who need it most.


Springwood Community Quilt Show

I am home again after 4 lovely days in the Blue Mountains at Springwood.
The Springwood Community Quilt Show never disappoints and this year was no exception.

The weather was just perfect...except for a little rain on Friday afternoon which certainly did drop the temperature a degree or two.

I was excited to see another version of my Turkish Delight pattern hanging in the show. Beautifully made by Jeanette McKechnie and machine quilted by Suzie Anderson of Leura Quilting.

Such an assortment of beautifully hand and machined quilts were on display with certainly something for everyone's taste.

As there is each year, there was a diverse range of shops  for the visitors to enjoy, selling everything from fabrics, notions, finished items, china and antique items....I certainly came home with one or two little extras.

So I hope that you have enjoyed a small glimpse of a great show.....

Oh and of course I have managed to do a little stitching on the Sunday whilst I was there...

and now I can't stop....stayed tuned.
