A few of you wanted to see pictures of my little sewing area so here they are.
I love this corner of my house. You can see the sewing desk that I got from Freecycle and that wretched shelf unit - lol !! It took lots of time to get stuff sorted into these various boxes and baskets but it was worth it. Most of my fabrics are in those wheely trolley things although I keep all my fat quarters in a pine cupboard in my bedroom. About 2 big drawers full. I don't have a vast amount of space but I am happy with it for now. When Jess leaves home though I will whip myself in her bedroom as quick as a flash. No rush Jess - honestly - lol !! Seriously she is only 17 but she has the biggest room with loads of natural light - sigh ! One day......
Anyway onto other things. I was very fortunate to win a draw on Toni's blog and heres what I got through the post this week.
Isn't it fantastic ? I love the pattern - it is just so sweet. And look at all the fabric she gave me too. Wonderful ! Toni is downsizing her quilting stuff and every Monday she has new items up for grabs in her Manic Monday slot. I really, really wanted this and was chuffed to bits to get it. Thanks so much Toni !!
On Sunday I got an email to say my 4Seasons quilt partner had received her quilt and that she had posted about it on her blog. It is Julia at www.scraphappyquilter.blogspot.com/. I think she likes it - lol !! I had loads of fun doing this swap and will definitely sign up for the Spring one. My swap quilt hasn't arrived here yet but I'm sure it will be soon. I know some people didn't quite make the deadline but that is ok. I just have a flat nose where it has been pushed up against the window every morning looking out for the Postman - haha - you think I'm joking ??
Have fun !!
