Look what arrived in the mail - for ME - all the way from the other side of the world! How lucky am I to WIN all of these wonderful goodies.
And what you might ask did I do to win this wonderful prize? Four lucky participants in this year's Skirting the Issue won prizes, and I was fortunate enough to be one of them - a package from Elizabeth and liZ, from Simple Simon and Co...
- When Skies Are Grey Fat Quarter Bundle (Pink)
- The Playhouse Teepee Pattern - there's a PDF version
- Simple Maxi Skirt Pattern
- The Simple Simon Guide to Patchwork Quilting
- Kaffee Fassett Hexagons
I am blown over by the generosity of Elizabeth and liZ. You should have heard me as I opened the parcel. Mr TMW can attest to how happy I was / am. To top it off, the girls had to pay overseas postage; not a small amount.
So far I've made several items, in my head, with the gorgeous When Skies Are Grey fabric...
- patchwork skirts
- zippered pouches
- baby quilt
- fabric baskets
Not sure yet what I'll make, but I'm going to have fun working it out. Maybe it'll be one of the projects in The Simple Simon Guide to Patchwork Quilting. As well as eight quilt patterns, there are numerous smaller projects, too...
- baby bib
- kitchen accessories
- fabric basket
- zippered pouch
- sewing machine cover
- .... and more
759 items (skirts, quilts) were made for Skirting the Issue this year. Of that huge number, I made five skirts. Congratulations, liZ and Elizabeth, on co-ordinating such a successful sew-a-long - so much work and time involved in running such an event. I know I'll be joining in again next year. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for sending your most generous prize. I still can't believe it!!!
