FNwF, happy mail and other news


Many thanks to Cheryll for inviting us to join her again last Friday. For one reason or another Friday was a stitchy non event for me - all I managed were a few bits of quilting on my Pink BOM which seems to be taking me ages to finish!



I received some happy mail last week - these gorgeous Island Batik fabrics which I won in a blog hop from Turid.

 
At the moment they are still too gorgeous to unwrap but I will soon find a project for them I am sure.
 
I finished off the little crazy quilting pincushion that I was making
 
 
and completed the crazy quilting I was working on for a competition - still no photo's allowed, sorry.

The patchwork girls came last week and started on their next block of the Mystery Quilt. This is what they are making.


A Log Cabin, log cabin! Now, I got the idea for this block from a blog but stupidly did not make a note of whose blog! So if you are reading this then please, please contact me so that I can credit you.

And finally, I have completed two more blocks for the RSC - September


and October


I am off to UK again this week but hope to be back in time for FNSI - so see you there.

Hello Lin, I thought I had posted a reply ... must have just read it!!
That is such a gorgeous pin cushion, always a delight to see your beautiful work.
The pattern on the log cabin is lovely, really clever.
When you receive new fabrics I can feel your excitement (same for me when I buy new brushes or paints!)... always the challenge of what we will make! Enjoy :D) xx
