I popped this picture in first to show you my restraint in shopping Amitie Sale Day, a while ago - I knew what I needed - 10 spools of Perle thread for my crochet scarf - and because I can't seem to get enough blues, grays, purples in my winter colour diet, these are what I chose! They are so deliciously perle-y! (Please don't expect anything before Winter 2010 hehe!) Of course I did also get some Kaffe fat quarters, (how could I not) but with Mum and Sister waiting in cafe nearby (they couldn't cope with all us Crazy Women!) I had to be quick!!
My completed Chaletgirl Blocks - these are my last- 'tear'.
Lots of bloggy applause is being sent to Sheridan - Swap Host Extraordinaire - so glad I am in her next swap - I thought I was going to miss all her little notes of encouragement with each parcel I received - but hopefully, they will continue (no pressure S.!)
For Helen of Patchy Work of Mini Grey
I knew she loved the key lime Kaffe so I had to provide, along with some lovely scraps of 'vintage' Amy Butler.
Just discovered that I stuffed Helen's blocks up - sewed 5 FF blocks when they should be 4FF!! I wondered why I had one little piece left over - but unfortunately, had already posted them off to Sydney! They shall have to come back and I will unpick, resew, and repost..my sincere apologies to Helen for having to wait for this numbskull!
Finally, I did mention 'Around the Block' we go - well, this is the start!
This is a new quilting swap project with 16 members who decide on their own block pattern and fabric but get everyone else to make it for them!!
I love the idea and received my first fabrics (a little time ago) from Kate of One Flew Over.
Boy oh boy - cute cute and adorable! Some HR fish and swimmers and turtles and Japanese robots and spacemen and some lovely co-ordinates in blues, oranges, greys - all to be turned into Wonky Log Cabin Blocks.
V. nervous to start with - they were all so preciously someone elses - but it has ended up being so much FUN!
I added the animal print and the grey and blue large dot pieces - I do believe we could add our own co-ordinates and I needed to, to make large enough blocks. I hope they are okay Kate??
I have until Feb 2010 to decide on my own block and fabric - leaning towards some AB Midwest Modern - which I have oodles of, in maybe string block, or triangle block, or wonky? Just don't know!!! Did you check out Helen's Wonky House Block for her ATB - bright fabric too - can't wait to get mine!!
