YOU KNOW THIS PATTERN..PATCHWORK OF ANY DIRECTION
COBBLED TOGETHER IN ODD SHAPE AND SIZE.
Hello lovely deskers - I hope you've had a good week! Thanks for the fab comments about the pics of Julia and I last week. I would like you to know that there is still some gin left in Wales as I write :-D
This was the desk yesterday - a member of the Knit Stitch and B*tch group was asking if anyone had some small items that could be sold at a MacMillan Coffee Morning to be held soon. The offer of some tissue holders was readily accepted and after a quick furtle through the stash, I got some suitable fabrics. They only take a few minutes to make :-D
I made about 14 so hope they help raise a bit of cash!
This is actually my desk from last Thursday.
It wasn't the best of weather so a little light crafting was in order. I'd decided to enter the craft section of my local village show - nothing like a bit of forward planning eh? Lol Anyhow, I took some of the fabric masterboards made a couple of weeks back and some spotty lining from my stash...
I didn't have enough of the spot to make internal pockets so used another scrap - it sort of worked in a mish-mashy way!
Imagine my delight when we turned up at the show to find this:
2nd place - woohoo!! I was really pleased as there were (to my eyes anyway) far more complex pieces in the category...maybe mine was just a bit different as the patchwork itself was extremely basic.
Yay, happy dance!
The only quandary is what to spend my winnings on - yep, £2 *grin* All suggestions gratefully received :-D
My mate Helen is a seasoned competitor at many shows in the region and this time was no different - she had a slew of firsts, seconds and thirds in a variety of categories including a clean sweep in one class:
This knitted tea cosy of hers just made me smile - a gift from Wales :-)
I have a friend staying and am playing with the band this afternoon so replies and visits may be a little late......
