Cute Little Giveaway

I recently sorted through the last few boxes of remaining stock from my closed down quilting shop House of Patchwork. Ahhhhh fond memories! There really isn’t very much exciting left now but I did come across these Brooch Kits by Whiskers & Wings.

Geraldine Brooch Kit

They are little kits that contain everything to make Geraldine.

Geraldine is a cute little cow brooch measuring 3½″ (9cms). The kits contain all the fabrics, wooden legs, buttons, bell etc. Geraldine is very easy to sew and would make a great gift for a friend either sewn ready or maybe just the kit.

And the good news is I have five of them to Giveaway.


If you would like to be in for a chance to win one of these kits then please leave a comment. Now what could you tell me in your comment? I know, how about telling me what generally tempts you to follow a quilting blog when you surf around the quilting sites. I think that would be interesting to know.

You have until Tuesday 25th February to leave your comment and I will draw the winners on Wednesday. And then I will tell you what draws me to follow a quilting blog. I wonder if we are tempted by the same things??? Interesting eh! (Giveaway now closed)

Good luck.


Bed Runner Finally Finished

Do you remember that I posted a Wonky Wavy Seams Tutorial on my blog and used the technique to make a bed runner? Well, I just checked and it was back in February 2010. I also re-read the post and I see that it says that I made it for our new bed in the bedroom. Which is true. At that stage the bed runner wasn’t quilted and the post also says that I would post a photo of it on the blog when it was finished and on the bed. Well, I am embarrassed to say that last week (some three years later) I have finally sewn on the binding and put it on the bed.

I am very pleased with it and luckily have not changed the colour scheme in the room that I had planned it for. It is of course now quilted too. I used a multi coloured Jeans Thread by YLI and it is randomly quilted with continuous straight crossing over lines.

I feel quite sure that I suffer from ADHD (attention deficit disorder) because this is a typical example of how I work. Whenever I am sewing a project my mind is already working on designing the next one. And I flit from project to project. This is why so many of my quilts are not entirely finished very quickly. I am a bad, bad girl!

So, the moral of the story is go take a look at your UFO’s (unfinished objects). You may be surprised with what you find. And like me, you may decide it is about time you finished them off. You could be as pleased with the final result as I was.

As for me, I am off to take a look in my UFO basket to see what I should finish off next. I wonder what I will find.
