As its 5 months today until Christmas day I thought I would show my festive stash and start thinking what I am going to do with it. Firstly some Fat Quareters of Be Merry for Riley Blake Designs. I am thinking of a throw for my lounge to use at Christmas with these and possibly using them for my month in Fresh Modern Bee 2
Christmas gift bags with these reds and greens
Yummy Tilda (to stash and look at and fold and stroke!)
Figgy Pudding - I have a Jelly Roll of this too but not sure what to do with it yet.
Oops real life really is getting in the way of sewing at the moment. I have done something productive however, sorting my scraps and making them into 9 patches before they overspill out of the ever larger Ikea basket.
And manically sewing and trying to finish these blocks for my brother's 30th birthday quilt (his birthday is 23 July but luckily for me I won't see him until 30 July!)
And finally I discovered with great exitement that Seamstar had some Hushabye. I fell in love with this design when I started quilting but was late to the party and its out of stock in a lot of places. I have gradually being buying it where I see it (usually in the US) so I was really excited to find it hear in the UK. So I ordered a metre of each design they had.
I couldn't resist a FQ of this lovely design too. The fabrics comes beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and tied up with ribbon.
And I was eligible for free postage and this lovely mini bundle of fabric and ribbon (which includes Tanya Whelan's Dolce, another of my favourite ranges).
