YOU GOTTA HAVE FRIENDS.....
It has been a week of highs and lows...
The high was most definitely seeing Shaz and Doug Silverwolf at the Crop with all the lovely peeps who attended...
What a lovely day it was, full of fun and laughter. See the previous post for all the pics and carry-ons!
The lows may involve dynamite to try and unblock my ears and cure my vertigo (BPPV). All suggestions welcome, I'm bored by it now....
Anyway, I did do some crafting as friends had their second baby boy and I was casting around for a prezzy. I knew that I'd do some personalised bunting but needed something extra.
And what did I find tucked away in a R.U.B, but a few squares of quilt-as-you-go patchwork that I featured months ago. Aha!! Halfway to a present.....I do love it when there's a happy accident :-)
I had been using a Moda charm pack, which makes co-ordinating the fabrics a piece of cake..
I didn't even bind the edges, just sewed the backing on, turned it out the right way and then zigzagged the perimeter to reinforce the quilt. Lazy but effective :-D
There...quick and easy and perfect for a baby to roll around on!
And the bunting got done too...woohoo. I love getting my buttons out - if ya know what I mean, lol :-D
Better make this a short post today as the Crop one was a mammoth epistle...but I must finish with a pic of the gorgeous tags, ATC and card given to me on Saturday:
Great Halloween colours from Dolores, Debbie and Lizzie plus a fab ATC and card from Marcie Lee. Both Lizzie and Marcie have been avid followers of WOYWW and read all our blogs but can't comment. Well girls, your support is very much appreciated. Thank you Cardarian for bringing Lizzie to the Crop, it was great to meet her and she'll be joining us on the desks today. Yay!! Hope you'll all go pay her a visit, she's a lovely lady who fitted in brilliantly.
Have a good week xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
