I am going to go link with the Randomeers on Friday, (just to be extra random), because I failed in my photo assignment for Cindy, and will make amends tomorrow. If you haven't seen her instalment today, you should, it's brilliant!
Today, some of the teachers were on strike, but the girls were still 'in', hubby and son had the day off, so I went to work. I had my 'in-year review', which took hours, but set me up nicely for a trip to Tesco and then a pit-stop at the local fabric shop on my way home.
Tomorrow one of my fellow managers will be moving up into the village. I had been dithering about whether to make some sort of house-warming gift, (bearing in mind no-one I work with knows I sew, or blog, or have this whole alter-ego going on!); but as soon as I saw Nova's bunting yesterday, dilemma resolved.
I bought some bias binding and a FQ of some Timeless Treasure pretty rose fabric, came home, and made some. Just like that!
Apologies for the crappy pictures, the light was fading, and they will be all parcelled up before morning!
I remembered Amy's tip about using a piece of card to press the finished flags, and it worked a treat. The flags are c. 4" wide and 5" long, and the bias binding in 1.5m.
I am still waiting for stuffing, but in the mail today...
It's bloody marvellous!! The blocks all look beautiful, and the projects are gorgeous and I would still say that even if those super talented ladies, Kerry and Lynne weren't my friends!
I'll say a bit more about the book when I have made something from it, which I am hoping will be really soon!
So that's my lot, not long 'til the weekend, happy days.
