I knew that I needed to take these beauties home-and so a bag is born.. :)

Carmel so kindly gave me some hints and tips on how to go about putting our bag togethor.. and then we set off to work!

Lil Zipper Purse

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Well the team @ Blueberries have been so excited by these cute little numbers….

sweetroll

How sweet are they? And with a name like “Sweet Rolls” they are just good enough to eat :) :)

They come in a little green box and you get 2 different sweet rolls for $35.00. Plus you get an exclusive pattern in the box that makes a really cute little clutch purse.

But there are SO many other things you can make with these little babies.. I whipped up a “Lil Zipper Purse” last night.

Yes I am pretty impressed with how super quick and easy these delightful little purses come togethor. I havent been sewing all that long.. and have been so grateful to Jackie for all her help and guidance to help me put all the basics togethor.

These are a couple of purses we prepared earlier.. :)

We will be selling these in kit form at the Quilt show in June.. so make sure you pick up 1, 2 or 10 to have in your stash. They make great presents and mine is already filled with my lipstick and is sitting neatly in my handbag!

Super Saturday Fun!

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Now most of you know that last week @ Blueberries was our Sale week.. and what a great week we had! I am sure that you are all so pleased with your bargains that you picked up, but dont stay away too long as we are constantly getting delivery trucks arriving with fantastic new products that you will want to have too :)

We were so lucky to get a visit from a lovely group of ladies from Fairholme Quilters in the afternoon, so we finished off the sale week on a high!

29 ladies from the Fairholme Quilters group arrived for a visit as the last stop on their weekend Bus trip- it was such fun meeting you all and we hoped you enjoyed your shopping visit (and of course the yummy afternoon tea :) ) Dont forget to come back and see us again really soon-

As the resident “Blogger Girl” I couldnt resist taking some pics of the fun we had that afternoon.. and of course a little sneaky pic of some of our lovely “Blueberries Team” Rachel, Linden & Carmel.

Have a great week!

Now these special ladies worked so hard in the kitchen preparing delicious treats like scones, devonshire tea and sandwiches. (with treats like that I think I will be asking Jackie if I can go in her bag next time so I can sample some too LOL )

And this is some of the demo’s that were happening at the show through the day.

So as you can see it was pretty jam packed with lots of things to see, taste and new techniques to learn, a great weekend all round really!

Ok well thats about it from me, but on behalf of all the team @ Blueberries we are sending BIG hello’s to all the wonderful people that we met in Dubbo!
