I am such an Aneela Hoey 'fan', you may have noticed, she has! Aneela was the inspiration for my Happy Scrappy quilt, I have my Sherbet Pips Confetti quilt, and she designed the Around the Corner 'Man Quilt' pattern; my hexie sewing bag is predominantly Pips, I am working on a Pips hexie cushion during all those ballet lessons and I have a stash of Little Apples waiting to ripen. So you could easily guess that A Walk in The Woods is just a tad eagerly waited, oh, and pre-ordered already!
But looky look at these apparent scraps (although I beg to differ!)...
I was sooooooooooooooooo over the moon to find these waiting for me when I got home from work today; stacking them into piles of the different prints was so therapeutic after 5 hours of database interrogation.
Aneela is such a lovely, funny, generous and super talented designer and maker, and a Brit! This line might just be my favourite so far, Little Red is the cutest. (Did I miss anything out Aneela?!). I am so chuffed, even the pain of the Nativity cannot wipe the smile off my face.
Wise Man update:I hate gold thread even more than I imagined I would - so it has been banished, having been unpicked again and again! The 'slinky look' from the first fitting this morning has been rectified this evening with the addition of a full length pleat down the back; gold ribbon and a nasty button have blinged it up a bit, and hopefully I will be able to entice the wise one to try it on again tomorrow for a photo or two!
Oh and before I go, Noodlehead-Anna is having a 2 day sale, offering $2 off all her patterns, including the 241 tote, so for less than £4, you could get that, or, as I did, the Go Anywhere Bag pattern. Woo hoo!
