I have been happy, sad, royally peed off and bursting with joy. I imagine that most of us go through much the same at one time or another.
Along the way I have made many virtual friends and some real ones. I have learned much about myself and lots about crafting.
I have saved money by reading lots of frugal tips and recipes, I have also spent a fair bit buying the machines and materials that I use in my crafting.
I have had lots of support along the way and now it is just about time to pay it forward.
Because of horrendous postal charges this has to be a UK only giveaway.
This is the third time I have made this pattern, none of them have stayed with me. I have put most of my long hoarded favourite fabrics into this one, I firmly believe that a gift should be something that you would want yourself. This was on my frame to be basted but is just too big to quilt on it, it may well be the biggest quilt that I have made. I will let you know when I trim and measure.
This happy backing print has just about every colour that is on the front, so it had to be used.
Two rows of "organic" straight line quilting across the quilt, one each side of the row seams is plenty. I want this to be all about the colour.
I just have to make the binding, trim and finish it off. Once I have decided on which fabric to bind with. I like this print, flurry, and have almost decided on the turquoise. Again this is my favourite colour and I love the print.
If you want to be in the draw drop me a comment and I will be pulling a name out of something hattish on Wednesday next week. It is cotton fabric with a warm and white polyester wadding so will wash and spin almost dry, can be tumbled on low or line dried. I often give my own a second spin then hang on an airer indoors if it is wet, and on the line if good weather.
I have been busy in the garden, lots of plants have been potted on, more seed set and mountains of weeds either pulled or hoed. Cooking has been simple and mostly veg with pulses, fast food.
My shopping was done yesterday and came to the grand total of £11: 27 and a big chunk of that was 8 tins of tomatoes, I had used the last of my stock on Wednesday.
Guess what, it is tea time, I could not spit a sixpence if I tried.
