More lovely post and crazy WIP

In my post box this morning I was amazed to find this huge collection of needles!

I may never need to buy another needle!

They were a prize for renewing my subscription to STITCH magazine

and the value of the prize more than covers the cost of the subscription. My lucky day!!


I have started another piece of crazy patchwork and am really enjoying it especially as I have reorganised all my threads and can see much more easily what I have.

I thought I would work this one in a frame to see if I liked it better, however I have found that a couple of my fabrics have puckered which is not supposed to happen at all in a frame. Also trying out my new Sharon Boggon crazy quilting templates which I used to draw the swag. Having great fun.

Have a good week everyone.
