As promised, I have a back to blogging (well almost) belated 300 followers pre-birthday giveaway but first, let me tell you what I`ve been up to or just scroll straight to the bottom and look at the pictures!
Before we left Morocco, I dragged the machine out of its summer hibernation and fulfilled a couple of bee obligations.
First up was a stargazing block for Nicole in the We Bee Modern Too - a bee using blocks from Modern Blocks. Nicole sent us all fabric from Kate Spain`s Joy collection. The block is made up of 3 different sized wonky stars and Nicole asked us to alternate the points of the stars in red and green.
It was a little strange making a Christmas block in Morocco in August but here it is - ready to be mailed off to Nicole.
Next up were blocks for Dolores who is queen bee for August in the Care Circle of do.Good Stitches. Dolores asked for granny squares in hot pink, orange and yellow. I love grannies as the effect outweighs the effort involved but this was a challenge as I had very little yellow and most of my orange had been used in my hexies. I did however have pink. I then remembered the Silent Cinema FQs I had bought back in May and I`m hoping that the yellow prints will be okay for Dolores.
My aqua, orange and grey hexie flowers continue to grow - I`m loving the slow relaxed progress. Here are some of the latest to join grannies flower garden...
...and here is a close up of the variagated versions using up the fabric which I love but don`t have enough of to make a whole flower.
...and lastly, here are some gorgeous fabrics which the lovely Susan generously donated to my hexie quilt and which came all the way from Australia in a record breaking 3 days!! So I won`t hear a bad word against Aussie post anymore. Thank you Susan - I love them!
Now you`ve been patient enough. Let`s get down to the giveaway. I was looking around the UK fabric shops for something to give away and then I saw this fabulous bundle of loveliness in Cindy`s gorgeous shop. A fat quarter stack of eight Kona solids - Kona Basil, Teal, Turquoise, Peacock, Azure, Bahama blue, Lime and Jade..
