Hadley made a stack of these to sell at the Fat Quarterly Retreat and I'd hoped to get one. Only one minute I was sat taking a picture of her being mobbed by keen fob wanting clients and the next minute she was empty handed. So I missed out. Being the lovely Hadley that she is she sent me one. Isn't it lovely?Completely the sort of colours I love. As well as a key fob I think this would make a great wrist strap for a pocket sized point and shoot camera as the wrist straps are rarely very substantial.
Post Retreat I may have been too exhausted to sew as much as I'd liked, but it didn't stop me plotting and when I saw an advert on facebook saying that Lush had been reprinted and The Fat Quarter Shop had some in, I toddled off to place an order. The Fat Quarter Shop had been a FQR sponsor and in our goody bags we had a 20% off voucher. It seemed like fate. I placed an order and thought I'd have to wait a few weeks for it to arrive. Whilst letters come pretty quickly from the US parcels seem to take a bit more time. So it was a BIG surprise to get home from work today and find my order had arrived. Including the weekend I think it took five days!?
Half Yards of Lush Reprint, Happy Go Lucky and some of the new Briar Rose by Heather Ross
Some Bonnie and Camille pre cuts, Winters Lane Charm Pack and a yard of HR fabric
Apart from the Lush which was a: Don't-want-to-miss-out-on-that-again purchase. I have plans for all the other fabrics.
In addition I ordered some wadding after reading this post and that arrived today. Despite feeling like I maybe getting a cold or lurgy I may just manage to get my vintage sheet quilt basted!
