I entered a giveaway at Cath’s Willow Valley Store blog recently and I was one of the lucky winners!!! My patterns have arrived and I couldn’t be happier!! I love Cath’s patterns and these two are just gawjus!! Thank you so much Cath :o).
I also found another surprise in my mailbox …. these lovely fat quarters from Julie. Julie fell in love with a bag I had on my blog a few weeks ago and so I sent it to her … and look what she did for me ~ aren’t they pretty!! What a sweety she is, thank you so much Julie :o)!!! I mentioned in my last post that I’ve been playing with some sashiko embroidery. Well here’s another I’ve been working on ….This one is my own design, maybe for a table runner?? Not sure yet.
I’ve had busy stitchy fingers this week but I can’t show you what I’ve been making. It’s a surprise for someone special ;o). Mmmmmmm, I do love those fabrics though ;o).
Have you got your latest issue of Creating Country Threads yet??? I was so excited to get this one, there’s a profile of our very own dear Jenny of Elefantz!!! Not only that but her gawjus DD Blossom has a pattern in there too. And take a look at that cute guitar on the cover … that’s made by none other than Vikki of Sew Useful Designs!! Her first published design and she made the cover!!! Pretty cool :o)!!
I might go and do a bit more Sashiko … have you tried anything new lately??
