I didn't know if I had anything to blog about but then today went crazy LOL
Firstly I went to The Fabric Guild in Leicester with Mum, it's mainly for quilters but they do have a few bits for other crafts. They buy up stock from closing shops and sell it on at VERY good prices. This is what I got today:
|Craft items including a pompom maker|
|All my fabric, mainly fat quarters for |
|Card making stuff|
|And I bought these crochet hooks and |
small booklet - maybe I'll do it one day LOL
All of this and a liitle more came to under £30 and I got this as a freebie :)
|And I had this freebie too|
I have had a wonderful discovery - I know you'll laugh because I'm thinking it's something you all know about. I discovered Bondaweb for making ornaments - I usually use fabric glue or double sided tape but it's not always successful. I now know Mum uses Bondaweb for her applique work (I wondered how she did it)
Anyway I have stitched two of the Drawn Thread free Santas that Rachel (the student who followed me) stitched. I did it missing a square as she did and they look fab - I have just used my Bondaweb to attach them to felt and they look lovely - I am so pleased and feel so thick that I didn't know about it before .

Last March I did a competition to guess how many non-stitching days I'd have. I didn't do much stitching at all (far more than the guesses) and I didn't really keep an accurate count. So I have put all the names on bits of paper and drawn a winner. The winner is Elaine - congratulations. I have emailed you for your postal address so I can send you this prize.
I have posted my RR to Dusty - there's only four if us in the 2011 Round Robin now and I decided to do coasters for the caravan. I'm looking forward to working on the other pieces. I also posted off a little something to Jaclyn who won the Christmas Quiz on NH - well done Jaclyn.
Thanks for reading my blog, happy stitching.
