I had an unexpected day off work today as we awoke to a poorly twin, so I spent much of the day holding back hair, offering water and doing the mummy-thing.
I was therefore pretty pushed for anything pleasant to tell you about until an unexpected email arrived from Amy at Amy's Creative Side a couple of hours ago. Guess what - the Rainbow Cherry Star got nominated into the final five in the ROYGBIV category - how exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not only have I made it through to voting stage, so have many of my friends including Laura-Jane and her Brit Bee quilt, the 2 Charlottes, Newland and Dumesny, Leanne and Kelly!! So please pop over, take a look and cast your votes in the 15 categories. I am up against stiff competition, but I am totally thrilled to have reached this stage. Thank you so so much if you nominated my quilt xxx
So as to not leave you without a pretty picture or two, how about these...
Yesterday Nova came to my 'hand-sewing, need for quick makes and last minute gifts' rescue!
Her lovely tute uses Liberty scraps to make x+ brooches, as part of her monthly challenge from Brit Bee Jo, but being completely devoid of Liberty, (bar a couple of V&A FQs which will remain untouched as they were the first quilting fabrics I ever bought!), I raided the scrap bags, and I have a few more to finish tonight.
So those were the ups and downs of my day; I hope you had more ups than downs to start your week xxx
