Hey everyone, it's giveaway time! I have reached my 100th post and I'm feeling fine!
I love giving gifts and why not for 100 mins/hours/days spent at this screen, typing stuff, posting stuff and people out there seem to read it! It still amazes me that people read my stuff! I really feel like I am such an amateur at all this and my goods are nothing spectacular! But.....I still want to do it and so I Do!
I feel like I have made some good friends through my blog that I can talk to about my craftyness, which is so cool, and friendship is never anything to be sneezed at. To ooh and aah together about sewing, quilting, fabric, colour, pattern, techniques and so much more has become a big part of my life, which I enjoy so much; so thank you crafty blog people; big hugs to you all!
Now don't get too excited.....I have made a tote bag for you, but pleeeese don't expect wonderfulness - the nervousness of creating stuff for others got to me and there are boo-boos!!, SO this is not a bag to take to the Ballet, it was created to take to the market instead of the dreaded plastic bag. Made from pretty percale vintage sheets, it is comfortably cotton/poly and has that 'homemade' look about it; I know how it feels.
(speaking of the Ballet, did anyone in Australia see the broadcast on the ABC of Graeme Murphy's Swan Lake OMG it is so stunningly beautiful; I saw it in Melbourne 2 years ago and have never seen anything so moving since; the whole production should be given OBE's or Australian of the Year or more!)
Next is a piece of vintage chenille in a delicous apricot colour with motive 70" x 25" (90cm x 64cm) - great for maybe a long cushion, mini quilt backing, softie?
Last but not least, are two, count them, two quilt patterns; One from Fig Tree Quilts called Blossom, using 10" pieces, easypeasy, and the second from Sisters of Squirrel Hollow (how cute is that name); great for charm squares! Both patterns are brand new and in excellent condition!
Thanks everyone for sticking by me, waiting for the countdown to finally finish! ( Thanks too to Kellie for your kind thoughts)
Post me a comment - I can't wait to hear from you all and check out your blogs too, and I will pick out a name next Wednesday! Good luck!
