Winning ways


A huge Thank You to every one who entered my giveaway. In fact Thank You to everyone who has ever left me a comment, and even those who just visit but are too shy to comment, Thank You to you too!

The winner of the give-away was Penelope who makes the most amazing sock monkeys!! See them on her blog, Highland Monkeys. They'll make you smile! She's just finished her first patchwork quilt. Maybe Friendship Circle will be her next one.


Our class at The Vintage Patch is making Dahlia quilts. I'd spent the couple of weeks since our last class umming and ahhing over what colour combo to use, then yesterday morning half an hour before I was to leave for the class I grabbed this combo... starting with a few gorgeous Sis Boom fabrics, then added some Anna Marie Horner from her Good Folks range and a bit of Kaffe.

I guess sometimes choosing colours is about how you feel on the day. It's been a grey rainy day outside today so playing with these jewel tones has been just the thing brighten up my day. Along with some fun, up tempo Afro Beat music.

I haven't sewn all the pieces together yet but promised my friend Lorraine from the class I would post a photo. Hi Lorraine!! What do you thnk?

One more thank you before I sign off today... A super big Thank-You to GBF for doing all the cooking, grocery shopping, making me cups of tea all day so I could do my sewing. I know I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have a special guy like you in my life.

What a fabulous dahlia - and those fabrics - mmmmmm - that Kaffe is just to die for - I could have a whole quilt just of that. I can't even contemplate how you piece that pattern - it's amazing.

Oh my!!!! This Dahlia is gorgeous! You've chosen some great designer fabrics--Sis Boom with Kaffe and Anna Maria. Love these together in this way. And you are absolutely right about color on gray days. Isn't it great we have fabric, and men who let us play with it all day, to brighten up our days?

Well done Rachael - it looks fantastic. Just glows from the centre and look at all that fussy-cutting.
