I sent some fabric to Alicia of Lucyquilts and she sent some to me - the challenge is to make a mini quilt out of their fabric and any embellishments and then send it back.
I have a plan in mind - even did some sketches! I will be trying some applique and incorporating the interesting extras such as pom-pom ribbon, beads, and a lovely embroidered flower. Alicia told me that there are bits and pieces in the bag which she has had..... since forever!
It is to go in their holiday van - I hope I can do it justice!
Just thinking at the moment - too much other stuff going on - you know what is around the corner!
I did do some shopping - not for myself - for my children (big smile!)
Planing on turning these be-u-ti-ful fabrics into peasant blouses for the kids - over Summer hopefully!
This gorgeous and most coveted piece of fabric is my London Map Fabric! Most sort after, once I spied a little piece in CampFollowerBagLady's cushion.
Could not find it anywhere - was told that it was Very Out of Print!
CFBL led me to Tokyo Mommy - who very generously went down to her local shops IN JAPAN! bought some and posted it to me. The postage was underpriced so I owe her something fabric-y. What do you give to someone who has local fabric stores like hers? Another thing to think about - after Christmas!
Don't you just love the way crafty bloggers look out for each other!
See her etsy shop for some more gorgeous stuff!
