Yes, I've fallen for it again.
I've signed up for a swap AND another QAL (Quilt-a-Long)! What am I like! I need therapy!
I could renege all responsibility and blame it on my other blogger friends, who have signed up too!
Let me justify my actions (well one of them anyway!).
My new friend, Sarah of Fairy Face Designs, is a fellow (& v.talented) Irish woman who is jointly hosting a QAL with Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts called Across the Sea.
I like the simplicity of this pattern, I like Sarah, I have a cot quilt to make for a friend - is that justification enough?
Here are my chosen 'boy' fabrics.
Signing up for Fluffy Sheep's Goodies Swap was a purely impulsive 'because I like making small things and giving them away' justification (I'm so weak!).
We will only have to make 2 items for 2 people - a mugrug each (love making these cuties) and one other small item each. I'm sure I can manage that on time (famous last words!).
Anyway, I have lots of ideas from recent small makes that I could draw on for this swap.
Hope you are joining in too!
Before I finish, just time to tell you about a giveaway my friend Karen is doing. Check out her fab stash of Creative Grids equipment she's giving away - some really useful stuff in there!
