In just under 2 weeks I am going away on a sewing weekend with the girls to country Victoria. Seven of us are going to take part in “Girl’s Day Out” with Melly Hurlston, Rosalie Quinlan and Leanne Beasley. I am sure we are going to have a hoot, and I really can’t wait.
The patchwork shop that runs this event (Country Thyme) has asked that we all bring a block to be made up into quilts that will be raffled as part of the “Biggest Cuppa Tea” Charity event for the Cancer Council. The theme for the block is Pink, Yellow and White, and you can see above what I have made. It gave me a chance to try raw edge applique, and I am really pleased with it.
After I had finished and pressed the block I re-read the instructions and realised that I had missed reading one tiny word – flowers. It was written with the Pink, Yellow and White, where the theme was discussed. I am hoping that the floral fabric will be enought to tie it in because I don’t have more time to redo it.
Oooops – made any crafty mistakes lately?
