Thanks to everyone who commented about the EPP.
To put you out of your misery, the Random Number Thingy came up with number 18! This means Jackie Doyle whose comment was:
Email me your address Jackie and I will get the fabrics out to you.
I have gotten my hexagon flowers that I cut on the Sizzix all ready to go with me to Jersey next week. I am excited to be teaching over there, so I get to meet new quilters and see a new place. I am already packing so that I remember everything!
In the meantime my stitching week has been motivated by my friend Victoria. She is a busy lady, but still found time to make a quilt from donated blocks for a friends friend. When I read she wanted blocks, I thought I didn't really have time. And then I thought 'if Victoria has the time to put this together and quilt it, then surely I have time to sew one block!' So still in my dressing gown (yes, this was before breakfast!!) I sat and sewed a block, and had it read yo to post when I took out Bosco later that morning…..and yes I was dressed by then!
Here's what I made:
Can you spot it in Victoria's quilt?
They were not my usual choice of colours, but I really enjoyed working with something a bit different.
Victoria then blogged about how she was stitching in a different way to re-jig her creativity. This got me thinking that I hadn't sewn a string quilt in a while, and I love doing them!
So I got out my light scraps (I have bag of lights and one of darks) and got sewing!
And the rest of my sewing this week has looked like this:
I still have more to do, but I am enjoying this sooo much. Just picking fabric randomly you come up with such unexpected combinations of print and colour!
Are you sewing anything different this week?
