I have some winners to announce! The "lucky" winners of my fugly fabric from the post before my last post have been selected. I did the whole "names on a bit of paper to be pulled out of the bag" but totally forgot to photograph it. Terribly poor show I know, but you're just going to have to trust me cos I cant be arsed doin that again, I just binned all those teeny bits of paper (after chasing Ellicat round the room to get a few of them off her). Not doing that again.
Anyway... We have winners...
For the checks and swirly blue FQs - Maxine
For the shiny red paisley stuff - Josephine
For the toy box panel (with scary monkey) - Gwen
And going back even further to the Stained QAL cutting post... that feels like all I've been doing for the last 2 weeks...
|cutting out of Fabric One...|
Just for anyone who actually looked at the cutting guide (and ran away screaming) here is proof that I am that fussy.... Well, I wouldnt ask you to do something I wouldnt...would I?

And just to make things a little more interesting...
.... I used two different fabrics to cut number 11...
But despite the over whelming feeling that all that cutting took weeks and weeks, I have actually been sleeping a lot, and, and I did sew something.
Leila @ Where the Orchids Grow did a wonderful post with a paper piecing pattern.

Now I was very keen to give it a go, but... well... it was for freezer paper piecing which I've not tried yet, and it had a few too many toatty wee triangles for me to cope with... So, I used Leilas pattern as a guide and had my first go at drawing my own foundation piecing pattern! I cut down on the triangles a bit too...

Mum has a habit of leaving her hot cups of tea on books.... mum also got a Kindle from dad.... So to deter her from leaving cups of tea on the kindle, I made it a nice thick cover!

And on to future post... I will get the "put the blocks together" Stained QAL post done asap, fingers crossed it might even be up tomorrow... but we'll see...
