Gosh, I thought blogging would be slow, I didn't know how slow! The PC decided it was time for retirement, and just stopped working one day about 2 weeks ago. So my new laptop is fitting in nicely, enjoying being moved around the house, and being super fast I'm surprised! Plus, there's something about 'new', isn't there?
So, 2 weeks must have full of stuff other than on the computer, right? I kept up with a few friends through Twitter; apologies if I'm repeating myself to them!
I finished the custom orders for Carly, the skirts are seen over at her blog. Keep an eye on her blog for better pics of her in the dress (hemming has made a difference!).

The pattern, for interest, is New Look 6910, of which I'm about to make a semi-formal version for my sister's wedding next Saturday. Nothing like a deadline haha.
I also finished my version of a 'stacked coin' quilt. Basically tried to use up some scraps! With a scrappy binding, of course! I've been lucky enough to receive a lot of these 'gourmet' scraps as pressies!
I don't think I'll ever get a corner so perfect again!!
I found the brown fabric at - surprise surprise - the op shop! A few metres, it is a slightly open weave, but the colour was great. Pink gingham sheeting for the background. Cheap and cheerful!
