Soooo much to blog about.......
I haven't blogged for a while (apart from the giveaway) and this basically is because things have gone mad ! Apart from real life interfering with hobbies (does that happen to you too ?:-) I have been to a Guild meeting, a quilting lecture, gone to an architectural open day and bought more fabric and am planning another quilt too.....!
Also... and this I am really excited about... I WON something !! I hosted the giveaway for the launch of Sewn, I participated in both the Sew Mama Sew and Sewn Giveaways and entered loads and won nothing at all. Then... out of the blue, a private Mayday giveaway could not reach their winner and had to be redrawn ! Hi !! I'm here ! Always !! So excited. 8 lovely batik FQ's and a pincushion. I needed that pincushion, and I love batik !! Can't wait to get it. As I don't know how to get the photo of her blog, I will blog about it when I get it.
I will also still let you know about the other things later, but for now....
I have cut my fabric for the Old Red Barn Sew Along!!
Eeeek...... You know how they say, "think twice, cut once "? We'll I thought about 8 times, blogged about it, got lots of good advice from lots of lovely people, thought about it another 8 times.. finally made that very first cut..... and then was brave and cut it all up!
Don't the stripes look lovely ? Going to sew a sample together for size today and then play with layouts and make all the blocks. I am still behind, but catching up...
Doesn' it look great ? I'm so excited to see what it is going to look like !!
