Out in the greenhouse we have tomatoes and sweet potatoes already quite established
In the sewing room, I have completed two blocks for Celine in the Sew Euro-bee-an Bee.
Celine asked us to make this block using bright colours , fussy cut, texty prints. My texty prints and fussy cut fabrics are a bit limited but I hope I did the bright colours OK . This will be going out to Celine next week.
I should be stocking up on my texty prints in the not too distant future as I have entered this charm swap - my first one. I have ordered this fabric from this on-line shop here in cz. I hadn't visited for a while and was amazed how her range of fabrics has improved in leaps and bounds. She has Noteworthy, Cuzco and Marmalade to name a but a few. Last week I got this little parcel from her
Beautifully packaged and of course, getting it locally costs around 3 pounds rather than the $24 postage costs now from the US. And her prices are really quite good. Most fabrics are around 8 or 10 punds a metre, but you can't buy fat quarters. And get this, she has Aurifil thread! Only 12 weight quilting thread at the moment, but it's a start!
This is what I have for the Texty swap. Its called Bucket List from Noteworthy by Sweetwater
There are so many texty fabrics out there, but it was quite hard to find them in the on-line shops. But everyone seems to be finding beautiful fabrics, and I'm going to have to think of something lovely to make when I get all of mine.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend, and a big GOOD LUCK to my nephew Tom who is running in the London Marathon today! I'll be watching out for you.
