So, there has been quite an interlude on my blog this month - maybe I should have had a punchy video at the ready?
My lack of posting got to be a bit of a habit, it's not that my laptop was closed for business - I have indeed been keeping up with life on Flickr.
Our fledgling Bee, Brit Bee Stingy has just completed our first little challenge, to make each other a pincushion. I was making for Nicky, Mrs Sew and Sow, and had fun making her one of my mega block pinnies.
I also signed up for the ModPop sew a long with Leanne - I am not performing well at all, there always seems to be something else I have to do in the sewing room, but I will get to it, I promise.
As one, two, swaps finished I found myself jumping in to Scrappy Swap 2 - well I was in the first one so it was hard to say no. This one is run by Kat who lives in Perth, Australia - sign ups were to be last Friday, around 11am our time here in the UK, and numbers limited to 40. At 11am I was babysitting a rather fractious baby........I didn't remember the swap until a couple of hours later as I was en route for Glasgow - so my rather abrupt sign up was done for me by my daughter on her IPhone as we motored along, me dictating things like - "modern & bright".."not dull"........etc.
Looking back through my October folder (yes, sad, I know) I won a giveaway on Katy's blog, just before she rushed off to Seattle. It was generously given by Backstitch, so go on and have a look if you fancy a similar, yummy bundle.
Lovely, aren't they? This win inspired me to have a really good sort out of my fabric, oh that did make me feel better.Now I am back in the saddle, I have a few more things to show you, but I think that is enough for one post.
I have been a bit behind with my blog reading and commenting, my apologies, I am not ignoring anyone, someone seems to have pinched a couple of hours from each day!
