Give away

I came across a great give-away and immediately signed up! It's at http://www.abbeylanequilts.blogspot.com/ and the occasion is "national quilter's day" We declared that day international: C and I spent a whole evening chatting and quilting.

 Isn't this a cute threadcatcher/pincushion? Abbeylane is also giving away one of their great patterns.

I never ever won a give-away so I'll probably have to order at least the pincushion..:) But..you'never know; maybe I'm lucky!



Last sunday afternoon I spent sewing. I had to try the tutorial you can find at Janet's blog, designed for zipper fobics like me..

I'm not alltogether satisfied so I'll have to make another one :) No big deal since I went to the weekly market and came home with some flowerfabrics at bargainprice. (don't you love bargain-price-fabrics in ONE sentence??? I know I do!!) I found even cheaper polkadots so I'll definately visit the booth again. For now I have a new ZIPPERED makeup pouch!

  2. Toch wel een heel leuk make up tasje geworden. Ik ga snel een kijkje nemen bij de give away. Heb ook nog nooit iets gewonnen, dus ik bevind me in goed gezelschap. Gelukkig is het zo dat we altijd nog in staat zijn om zelf leuke dingen te maken!
