Sorry for the silence there girls, but I have some good excuses.
A. I have been madly piecing 528 flying geese, finishing, then deciding I need another 266.
B. I hurt my back pretty badly, and then, in an effort to not further hurt my back by stretching up to the top of the design wall, instead stood on a chair to reach and promptly fell off it, further hurting the aforementioned back and also my hip and knee. Sympathy please, amongst the smothered laughter.
C. We have been madly loading and loading and loading, all the exciting new things at SEWN this week.
There are really some exciting things. Not just new Favourites and a new article about binding by Linda Hungerford, or a link to the Down Under Quilts Pincushion Competition, but also:
A. Another great competition to win Moda Home goodies
B. A fantastic interview with Becky Goldsmith from Piece O' Cake Designs, and a review of their amazing new book (if you don't have this, get it now! You will not regret it)
And most exciting of all....
What do you mean what's Sew n' Sell?? It's out brand spanking new online marketplace that is expecially for all things sewn, and all things you need to sew things with. How exciting is that? My little Last Piece shop has the honour of being the very first shop in the Market, but if you hop on over there you can be next! In fact, the tenth shop to be created is going to win a fantabulous yet-to-be-revealed package of goodies from our prize stash in the office. If you want to check my shop out, click on the Sew n' Sell icon in my sidebar. And I have already had my first sale! Thanks to Lenore who was first in.
AND (can you believe there's an and?) I finally, FINALLY did the Dresden Plate tutorial! For instructions that I have been promising for over a month now, click HERE.
Sorry there's no pretty pictures, that would mean getting up off the couch with my gimpy knee and it just ain't happening. Tomorrow I promise prettiness and the lovely things I was sent from my Polka Dot Swap partner. See ya! Sarah Fielke, Material Obsession, Material Obsession 2
