August and a giveaway

Well I can’t believe August is over half way gone! In the post-Olympic period I’ve got very little done but here are a few things that I’ve been meaning to share for a while. I was lucky enough to take part in a Fat Quarterly design challenge this month using fabrics from the British Designer, Nel Whatmore. My project is on the Fat Quarterly blog today! Feel free to pop over and leave a comment over there so the Fat Quarterly guys and gals know you’ve been, make sure to come back though to find out about the giveaway 😉

August is the first month that the HipBees have been sewing blocks and luckily they’re for me!! I sent out packages of Summersville with co-ordinating solids and asked for house blocks in return.

 I’ve already received quite few of house the blocks. You’ll have to check out the HipBee group on flickr to see them as I won’t be showing them here until I’ve got them all 🙂 I also received this super cute Summersville ring pincushion from Tanya which was such a lovely surprise!!

Talking of surprises, I received this gorgeous package from Sarah as a ‘hello’ to the HipBees. A Zakka pencil case and check out the cute bee charm made by the very talented Shannon, Jude‘s daughter. What a great bee to be in!

 So now to get to the nitty gritty of the giveaway that I mentioned a while ago. This little old blog has been in existence for 2 years now! Wow, where does time go? As a thank you for all your support we’re giving away this awesome mini quilt that was hand-pieced by Yvonne using Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille. Check out the photos in Yvonne’s flickrstream for more close-up detail. It is beautiful!!

    Congratulations! Love that FQ design btw – great colours. I haven't got a favourite crafty blog at the moment because I just love reading everyone's. Not helpful for you finding new inspiration sorry!

    Ps. Can't believe you're giving away this lovely mini quilt!!!


  3. Zuzan says: is one of my fave blogs.

    Love the Vintage Modern hexies. I need more Amy Butler for a quilt I am making and though I love Tula Pink who I haven't bought because I love so much want to buy it all. Especially after featuring in Modern Quilting 2 and being called the Queen of Quilting.

    Thqnk you for the giveaway.
