Lis from Online Quilting, is currently on an extended holiday in New Zealand, and recently did a giveaway for some crafting goodies from there and, out of loads of entries, I was the lucky winner. But Lis didn't wait to come back to the UK to send the parcel, no, she incurred the extra expense of sending the parcel all the way across the world so I received it much sooner than expected.
And look at what she bought/sent!!!! Beautiful fabrics with aboriginal/tribal-inspired designs, a very useful back-pack style bag, a cute little pattern to make a chicken cushion and a lovely personal message on a New Zealand postcard. Then just when I thought I couldn't be any luckier, I found a pack of easy-thread sewing needles in the bottom of the bag. What a generous prize!! Lis is interested to see what I make from the fabric so I'll have to get my thinking cap on, but I've already warned her not to expect anything too soon!! Well.. you know what I'm like! The 'Time for Stitching' in my blog title is more of a dream than anything most of the time. My OH has been away skiing in France since last Saturday and I was so looking forward to the time I would have to devote to sewing. But all I've managed is just 2 hours of hand quilting in total!
Take a closer look at the fabrics - aren't they lovely and unusual. What would you make with them?
Bye for now
