Bits and Pieces...

In March I took part in the Typography Challenge, with Rikka and Keren, from Ricochet and Away and Sew la Vie! It was a lot of fun!!! Those who are awarded a star, have bragging rights. Well.... I've been awarded the Bronze Star you can see below, so I'm allowed to brag... LOL!!!

Third Place Typography Challenge!

This month, I'm taking part in the next challenge...

Garment Sewing Challenge: May 2012

A very small component of the challenge is the competition at the end. But don't let that turn you off. The competitive bit is really only for fun and bragging rights. The month of the challenge is about:
  • meeting new people 
  • interacting and sharing with the other entrants
  • learning new skills
  • having fun
You can read my first post here. I think I'm going to make myself a blouse. More on that later in the week.

If you'd like to join in, head on over to the Challenge home page and sign up.

Another win...
I forgot to tell you, last month, over at Tales of a Trophy Wife, I won three Lily Bird Studio patterns. Yay!!! Thanks Tara and Cecilia. I'm looking forward to using my new patterns. These are the ones I've chosen:

Onging Themed Link Parties...
Have you read this post about our ongoing themed link parties? There's a link party to suit everyone. Our last two linkys are:
I know I said I'm doing away with To Do lists, but, making a quilt is something I really want to do this year. Kelli, from Seriously I Think It Needs Stitches, has linked up a fabulous I Spy quilt. I'm thinking I'd either like to attempt an I Spy quilt, or a quilt made from the kids' clothes. I know I'm not in Kelli's league when it comes to quilting and I almost certainly won't be hand quilting, but it's great to get ideas and inspiration from others. Hmmm... I only have 8 months till the end of the year. 

I'm linking up with Thursday Think Tank over at Making Rebecca Lynne.

... Pam


  1. Pam, you can definitely do an "I Spy" quilt, you are an amazing seamstress. Elizabeth Hartman's book The Practical Guide to Patchwork has a pattern called "Small Plates" that would work as an I Spy quilt, and her instructions for the whole process of creating a quilt are excellent. Definitely worth having a look at.

  2. Sorry, forgot to say congratulations on the Bronze star too!
