Tomorrow, I'm off to my very first needlework show ever - Stitches & Craft in Sydney. I don't actually know very much about it, whether it's more 'stitches' or 'craft', but I'm going with Alison (Ozstitcher) and maybe meeting up with some of the other ladies from the TWBB so I think a good day is in the offing regardless.
I have a finishing HD today, I made Shepherds Heart up into an ornament, with silk ribbon ruffles round the edges...I had a bit of an 'off' with it though - I cut the fabric a little too small and had trouble stretching it round the cardstock form. I realised what I'd done as soon as I cut it but of course it was too late by then. Anyway, for that reason it didn't come out quite as I'd hoped, but I think it's OK.
Why do designers keep tormenting me like this? LOL....Just when I tell myself 'no more', someone goes and brings out a design which I just have to have....I totally adore this one. It's a new one from Charlotte Market.I'm a sucker for sewing cases and such anyway, and this is a beauty. It's called 'While I Darn Sewing Case' by Giulia Punti Antichi. Nowhere actually has it in stock yet so I'll have to be patient a while...not my strong suit as I'm sure you all know! LOL
Terri - the quilt kit was from an Aussie company called Patchwork Pumpkin.
Darla - now why didn't I think of that!!?? LOL
Oh....and Pete...if you're reading this.....love ya!!
