There I was, having a cup of tea whilst looking at my blog and reading posts from my reading list, when I came across juanitatortilla's post about the winner of her giveaway. I looked, rubbed my eyes, took a sip of tea, looked again, and it hadn't changed............. it still said lululiz in lalaland!!!! I had won her wonderful giveaway! OMG, I was so excited, just have a look here to see what the giveaway was. Gorgeous, or what?
Then I read Sarah's ( Red Gingham ) post and was delighted to see that my fabrics had made it safely to the other side of the world. And Sarah liked them, yay. I can't wait to see them in her quilt.
Another good thing - For the last few days, I had been halfheartedly looking for the bulk of my ribbons, which I had put somewhere in a safe place. You know, one of those places you think you are bound to remember, and never do, lol. I had some ribbons, mostly christmassy ones, in a drawer, but I knew I had a whole lot more, just couldn't remember where! And I really wanted to find them before I started making the lavender hearts and door hangers and pretty little lavender sachets etc etc. And lo and behold, this morning I finally found them. In a box which I had looked at at least two dozen times but not opened because it was in a cupboard with lots of photo albums, slide reels etc. Most of the ribbons are not really suitable for what I wanted, but I found some which could be useful, what do you think?
I also found a few bits of braid and bobble trim -
Oooh, and this really pretty cord trim to edge little pincushions with, or little sachets -
And how about this wide braid trim? It just screams 60s -
Sadly, the lavender I have been waiting for all week still hasn't turned up, so I can't make anything before the fair on Sunday. Ah well, I'll make some for the next one. Right now all I am going to make is a cup of tea!
