I did it! I paper-pieced Kerry's wonderful 'Winter Woolies' and it actually looks like it should... albeit in a mirror!
I don't know quite what went 'wrong', because it seemed so right when I was making it, and I only noticed when I checked the picture at the end; but no problem, I am chuffed it turned out so well!
I love the stained glass look too...
It will not be left as it is for long, I promise - I think the designer's wall hanging is probably the way I am going to go too.
This was supposed to be a trial run, hence the slightly less than thrilling fabric choices, but I think they work, and with my first bit of successful hand-stitched detail and a pom-pom, I couldn't be happier with it. Thank you Kerry, a fantastic début pattern.
Also wrapped up this week were a couple of parcels for me, containing these gorgeous beauties...
The stunning Terrain Jelly Roll is from Mandy as my 'Log Jam QAL' naming prize at Simply Solids, and the backing for the man quilt, and a few other Konas arrived too, (ordered from my 2nd favourite stockist, when I got the urge whilst Mandy was 'closed', sorry Mrs Noble x).
More wrapping, late into the night yesterday, in the guise of Bee Block parcels...
Watch out ladies, Madam November is coming to get you! I am so excited, these went in the mail this morning - I'll tell you all more next week, when the wonderful Eleven have received them.
And finally, all wrapped up this evening against the cold, 3 terrors at the Amberley Museum Fright Night!
Ghost train, broomsticks and glow-in-the-dark nail varnish - excellent spooky fun!
