Ooooo it's cold.....
So here are my heart warming ramblings for the 1st of February!
First of all my link up with fresh sewing day at Lily's quilts
I have really enjoyed being in the stash bee..... and made my first tree block for Sunni - just waiting to hear what Feb's block will be.
This month the mouthy stitches swap has taken hours and hours of my time, and not always in a good way. In my mosaic is the side of my pouch that I made which nearly everyone (and my partner) disliked. So I have finished that up and made it in to the pouch at the end and I will have to love it myself! I am still working hard on the actual swap item..... but no sneak previews here because I couldn't cope with any more negative comments!
The rest are birthday presents............... (shut your eyes Alice!), and Jamie's win from my giveaway.
This week my winning jelly roll from Jodi arrived this week.....
I am so so so thrilled to bits to win this prize, because I don't have much new quilting fabric, using mainly old recycled clothes and sheets etc.... so I have found this book at the library (sorry awful pictures, but I'm not here in the daylight much at the moment to take photos)
And I think there might be a simple enough quilt in there that I can have a go at..... unless anyone can recommend anywhere else to look for ideas for patterns for jelly roll quilts?
And another exciting thing happened this week..... Judith opened her etsy shop...... whoopie, you have to check it out. And her pattern for the denim bags is there, so I bought one straight away - fingers crossed next month I can link up to show you that I have made one.
Right - I'm off to fill the hot water bottle up!
