Sometimes you just need to stop!

So… my morning went like this woke 530am, tried to get back to sleep. Fail. Moved about 620am in need of caffeine and crumpets slathered with chilli Philadephia yum (if you not tried this do!). Watched an episode of Vampire Diaries on itvplayer whilst waiting for the husband to get up and get ready for work.

After which I could sew! I’m part of the UK Borders- Add a Border Bee organised by the talented Kerry of Pennydog. I thought no problem will work on phase two of my border. However after much cutting, sewing and unpinning I’ve only ended up with the corner pinwheels… slightly wonky!

The green border I added yesterday and my *plan* is pinwheels in the corner then the rest of the border made up of Moda Snow Batik in bows with the white/starry fabric. At this rate it might take me all year.. 😦

I did finally finish my first proper mini quilt yesterday- this uber cute Cupcake wallhanging.. well I just need to add the tabs to it to go on the wall but I love it… imperfect quirks and all. Ssh pretend you don’t notice the slightly chipped button.. I broke a needle on it.

I really love the quilted feel of this! It reminds me of a table cloth so have added that to my ever expanding list….

Last thing I promise today… this will be going in my shop soon- what do you think? A Christmassy Penguin fabric art 🙂

Pursey Giveaway!

Ok… back in April I promised a Pursey Giveaway once I’ve reached 750 fans on facebook. Well as of today I now have 766! Due to the tightening of facebook rules I am holding the final session of the giveway here.

So… the purse it’s this one. It’s a very pretty fabric there’s just one minor problem. It has a flaw. The edging inside isn’t as neat as my perfectionist head wants it to be.

Now the lining.. is a pretty cream cotton with yellow stars and the size you ask. Well it’s 16.5 x 12.5 cm.

Well.. who wants a chance to win it? And I’ll even throw something extra inside like a present. 🙂

All you have to do is comment on this post. It would be an added bonus if you could browse my shop and tell me what you like best.

But no pressure…. you won’t be discounted if you don’t. I will using the power of a random generator to choose the winner next Sunday 20th at 8pm.
