50th. POST

Today is my 50th post and to celebrate, I have a give-away! Leave a comment until next Sunday, the 18th of November, 24.00 o´clock and you will take part in the drawing.
I tried to put in the packet some local stuff: the ribbons are from here, the home-spun from there. The big piece of fabric (2 yards but only 28" wide is from France).




After 10 months of blogging, I can´t imagine life without it! I have met (if only virtually) so many nice women who show so beautiful work and who are always ready to answer a question. Through the 4 SQS and other rings, I have seen the generosity of still some more women and through the drawings on other blogs I was inspired to give back a bit of that generosity to you.
So please, do leave a comment!


The next picture is the result of the Christmas mystery my students achieved. I got the pattern from here and it was really fun to do. The pattern looks great in every combination.


The week-end was very busy (see last post) but full of quilts and other treats. The guild meeting was very nice with a long show and tell and many different quilts in all sizes and styles.The hand craft market was interesting too. That is what I brought back from the two: some fabrics, embroidery floss and some bone-china beads.
I only have to transform some of these into Christmas presents now!

I wish you a nice week and good luck with the drawing.

Just thought I would say hello and "How are my cushions?!!" please don't enter me in the competition as I wouldn't know what to do with these pieces of fabric!! They are two small for cushions you see!! Went to get some lovely fabric from Laura Ashley today and ribbons with diamonds to make new curtains for my bedroom. Good thing mum is coming with her sewing machine next week!! Love from rainy England,
Your DS Anne
