Other stuff

I have other crafty news to show off, I received this lovely little pack in the mail from my mate Karen, aren't they cute? I want to make a robot, and this space fabric will go perfect! Thanks, honey!

And I should post this tomorrow for My Creative Space, but I want to show it before the 20% Spotlight sale tomorrow! I wanted to try a jelly roll, you know, if you like quilting but hate cutting fabric (and sewing it, right Cathy?) Cute colours, and I teamed with a vintage sheet backing. I bought the jelly roll from Spotlight, so if you likee, go buyee cheapee!
Some red Perle 8 hand quilting as well.

Little Miss thought it very funny when I took it to dance class to quilt while I waited, I was warm though! Oh, and a warning- try not to lean your inner wrist on a couple of big fat quilting pins- blood, bruise and incredible pain follows, let alone a hell of a lot of swear words!

OUCH! I'm heading to the 20% off sale at some stage too. Are you off to DFO?

Karen said...

Glad you like it and sorry it took so long to send Bec - I'm relieved you haven't made the Bot yet!

I'm trying to work out what to do with the sick kids and hubby (and bank balance!) so I can take advantage of the Spotlight sale!!!
Love the fabric from Karen, SO cute.

I love that vintage sheet, it goes beautifully with the other colours.

Quilt is gorgeous but you have GOT to start using safety pins for basting instead of those sharp numbers.
Off to Spotty today. Thanks for the heads up about the sale.
