Four Years / Day one


***************** CLOSED ********************


Welcome to day one!

Today we start small, and I have some Mini Charm Packs to give away.




The mini charms are so cute, and I was thinking you could mix the whole lot if you wanted to do something scrappy.  I love them for fitting so perfectly over 1 1/2" hexi papers...

I've been reminding myself what I did in my first year, and I'm shocked at how much I got done!  I'm proud of the Single Girl Quilt, that was some labour of love.




 I think my favourite make of the first year blogging has to be the Pob Doll.  A caricature of my brother in doll form...



To win the charms, just leave a comment!

Make sure you are not a NO REPLY BLOGGER as I'm not chasing winners, I need to be able to contact you.
Giveaway is open to all, and will run til 18th December.

  4. I, too, love how they fold so neatly over hexies, though at first I did try cutting off the corners to have even seam allowances.

  23. That doll of your brother is fab!!!! I'd love to win this. emilyste7ens at g mail dot com :) Will you let your daughter play with that doll, or has he been given away? You'll have to make one for your little poppet!! My mum made me a big doll when i was small, she was called Marigold, she was pretty awful!!! But as an adult when I laughed about remembering her, my mum was pretty hurt!! whoops!! My mum also made a horse's head on a stick type-of-thing, not sure what they are really called, and his name was Elvin.
