Happy Days

 

Hi everyone it's good news, we'll be moving after being in lock down for several days. This is likely to be the last blog for this year. We will temporarily be without an NBN connection and will have to rely on the local library. The happy plant that we have growing is flowering and we hope that this is a good omen.



 So until next time stay healthy and keep stitching, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us at Christina's Craft and Gifts

November

Hi everyone it's November and we're still looking for rental accommodation to take all of our stuff. It would have been good if someone had told us when we handed over our first lot of money to start looking, so by this time we've would have found a place to rent. Is there anyone out there, who has a four bedroom house with a double garage to rent? Let us know. Its just over a month to go before Christmas is here. To help with last minute gift giving to friends, (Yourself included) we do have Gift Vouches


Our specials for the month of November are Primke Stranded Threads, Primke Kit Trailing Vine and fancy buttons.

October (one closer to the move)

 Hi everyone it's October and the weather sill seems crazy. One day its already 30C and the next its raining so hard that you start to think where can I lay my hands on a row boat while trying to also cope with an icy blast of cold weather from the Antarctic. We're now busily looking for rental accommodation to take all of our stuff, so our old place can be ripped down and our new one built. All of us are eagerly waiting so that we can move back into our new place with its insulated walls and ceilings.


Our specials for he month of October are DMC Medici Wool (What we have left of), Finished Brooches and finally some Fancy Ribbon.

September

 Hi everyone it's September and hopefully the last of the icy winter weather is behind us. The B.O.M. are telling us it has been the warmest winter on record, I don't know where they're getting their information from but it sure doesn't feel like it from our end. News on the home front. We've just done our colour selection for our new house, doors, taps, ext. So we're one step closer to our new house.


Our specials for he month of September are Gumnut Blossoms wool, Elsa Williams crewel embroidery and Primke Designs Kit Hearts And Flowers Sampler.

August last month of Winter

 Hi everyone it's August, the last month of winter. The year has been one of extremes, the beginning of the year with its fires and forty plus temperatures to now with its zero degrees and lower. It feels like someone left the freezer door open in Antarctica. We've just had our soil profile done, so we're one step closer to moving and heaps more packing to do. For those who don't know We're ripping down our old place and re-building  new. Hard to imagen that we've been living in the same timber frame house for the past fifty eight years and none of us were born here, so you can imagen the place is looking a bit tired.


Our specials for he month of August are Rainbow Gallery Threads, Beads - Plastic Flowers and Primke Designs Kit Rose & Lilac Urn.

We're on the move


Hi everyone, we are in the process of moving and tearing down our old premises and building new. Don't panic we'll still be doing your orders but there are some things we wont be able to do, such as wooden boxes and slate frames, due to no tools, no workshop. Don't despair, our tireless staff are hard at it behind the scenes.





Our specials for the month of July are Sampler Threads, Stretcher Bars, and last but not least embroidery kits from Primke Designs, Little Jewels

End of Financial Year

June is here and the end of the Financial Year is looming, Where has the year gone? Drought one day fires the next, Corona( pain in the ass )-19 Virus to 
finish it off, hopefully now, we can slowly get back to a form of normal whatever that will be now.

The specials for the month of June are Butterfly Metallic thread, ideal for embellishing any UFO's [Unfinished Objects to you and me].
DMC Tapestry wool, while in lock down, create or finish that tapestry master piece that you've been meaning to put in pride of place on your wall.
Finally, Primke Gold work Bicycle. Alas we can no longer get the threads used in this kit because some of our suppliers have gone out of business, even before this virus. We are now down to our last one of this popular kit and once it is gone that will be it for the bicycle.








This all for now, from all of us here at Christina's Craft and Gifts, happy stitching.
