Lynz is a total superstar, and after posting my original 2 blocks on Instagram last week, she very kindly offered to make me a few to help me out. Now I can't offer her my first born (her Dad wouldn't like it), but what a kind thing to do, whilst asking nothing in return. I'm reminded once again what a terrific community I am part of, thank you Lynz you are lovely, your kindness has not gone unappreciated.
So now I have 318 more to do for a Super Kingsize bed quilt, I think I'll leave it a couple more weeks until after I've been on my jaunt to London, as I have a few other jobs to do.
And on that note, the name tag I made for my secret partner has arrived at it's new home.
Sarah at Guerilla Embroidery is the new owner of this tag, and as an embroidery expert (check out her Flickr photostream), it did mean I avoided like the plague, any embroidery on the tag, hence the splotchy printing of her name! Sarah seems pretty happy with it, but I admit it was a bit of a shot in the dark from one of her Flickr favourites!
It's a fabulous idea, you can showcase a project where you have:
- made an item from vintage fabric
- repurposed something in your home for the sewing room/space
- given something a new lease of life by transforming it into something new.
International entries are welcome.
I have linked up my Hexy Quilt as it has some vintage and recycled materials in, and there are some great entries- and a whisper of a giveaway, and we all love a giveaway, right? :o)
Ok, off to get some more FQR prep done, as time is running very short!
