OOPS !!!


Forgot to post my finsished product from the SewCanShe New Year Sewalong.. You had to make something using the  quilt block from the tutorial  http://www.bijoulovelydesigns.com/2011/03/herringbone-block-tutorial.html  as shown on the http://www.sewcanshe.com/blog/2013/1/1/the-its-a-new-year-sewalong....I made two blocks and made a round table topper..  The fabric is from my stash from The Connecting Threads website.  For the backing I upcycled a cotton tea towel with a mushroom stitched on it. I used some of the scrap pieces to create a banner effect to square off the mushroom stitchery.  There is a prize for the winner picked by a panel of judges....I didn't enter with the intention of winning anything, just a push to get some of my stash used up on some things I've been wanting to make....You can check out their Facebook page to see all the wonderful designs people made using this Herringbone Block tutorial. You can check it out here:  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.393813837379574.90899.190565494371077&type=3
Until next time 

Hope you are enjoying

hi Kim, I clicked across from your comment on our blog - I was so happy I could find you, as your comment came up as a 'no reply comment' so I couldn't email you back. I didn't realise I was a 'no reply commenter' until someone told me and I changed it, so I always try to pass that on.

Thank you so much for commenting on the pouch I made for Ros' swap. I have loved being part of the swap too. Ros is so lovely and it was so fun to make something cute and fill it with chocolates and lollies - perfect! I am finally posting my swap package off today - all the way to Georgia in the USA.

thanks again, take care, Catherine
