It's the last day of the month so time to reveal my birthday makes and linking up with Wendy at
Sugarlane Quilts for this. Thank you Wendy. Although, as we have been away for most of the month I only have one item to show you. It's an Origami Bag.
It's the first one of these that I have made and I shall definitely be making more. I am afraid I did not make a note of whose blog I found this on (sorry if it was you!) but here is the link for the tutorial on how to make it.
My Winter Crazy block now has a spider!
So now the block is finished and I have put it away safely to await the other blocks.
In the process of looking for the two black beads for the body I gave my bead collection a complete re-organisation and discovered that I do have rather a lot!
Now that they are all organised into clear containers at least I shall be able to see what I am looking for.
Yesterday I received an email about a hexagon project for the International Festival of Extra ordinary Textiles. As I had never heard of this festival I wrote back asking how they had got my email address and got an immediate reply saying from my blog! So maybe some of you will have had the same email? I would be interested to know.
The Festival is to be held in Clermont-Ferrand, France, September 20-28th. The idea is for people to send 7 patch hexie flowers from around the world to be joined together and then quilted at the Festival.
Here is the link to the instructions for the hexies and where to send them. I shall be sending a few.
And finally, we just had a very sudden and heavy hail storm which was over in less than a minute!
I hope you have a great weekend with lots of time to sew.
