Hi everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying the respite in the weather conditions.
Gosh, I am so sick of rain!
This will be a short and to the point post.
Firstly, I have a wonderful friend who is searching desperately for Prairy Schooler booklet 35. Please pop over to her blog if you think you can help her at her blog My Journey.
I've been busy on the stitching front: three new designs waiting to be stitched, one other nearly finished but not quite so nothing to show just yet.
I have been busy trying to work out what to do with all the donated fabric and have been using my own to test ideas out. Remember, I am quite new to the sewing machine so I need to get things right in my mind.
Firstly I came up with these; these are being sent as a late birthday present to someone who loves the colour purple.
Fabric Scissor Holder
Fabric tray to put them all in
Egg Shell Pin Cushion
All together....so I will def. be making more of these little sets. I have been busy cutting up pink fabric for a rag quilt but I wanted to make one first out of my own fabric to see how they come out.
OMgoodness, I think I have finally found a quilting style which suits me perfectly!
MIL bought me a layer cake for Christmas and because my back is still a little painful, I used it rather than cut out more fabric.
I have decided to make more things; rag quilts, sewing sets and then offer them as a draw. Once they are done I will be asking people to donate to through my just give page(s) and for every euro they donate I will give them one name in the draw. People just don't have the funds to pay lots out..so I would rather a lot of little donations and lots of prizes. What do you think? I will be researching the charities so you have a choice but they will all be cancer based and will have a research theme as I want everyone to benefit from the outcomes of such research, no matter where you live.
So, all good...and will be in production as soon as my back is better...it is loads better than it was...but I can't do the constant bending that cutting fabric requires.
On a totally different topic, I've started a new fb page called Cross Stitch Showcase. It is a safe place for designers to show off their work and for stitchers to endure serious enabling lol. Feel free to pop by: there are some amazing designers on there at the moment and we are hoping to grow so if you design, feel free to join us and if you like seeing new and upcoming work, then here is the place for you xx
Right...need to finish Harry Potter....he is like my comfort food...I cuddle up and read a few books and all is well with the world xx Have a great week everyone and thank you for popping by xx
