Look what else made me smile! Jo's package arrived from my win on her blog, these "bling for your pins". I just love spots and dots, 1950's polkadot Dianaware is my very favorite collectable, so how could I resist picking a spotted cup, and a sweet cupcake. Thanks again Jo!
Maree emailed me to see how I was going on our challenge to make Crazy Mom Quilts star quiltalong. I've got the white fabric out, I found and dragged out some very crumpled "faded memories" fabric I had stashed way and bought the white thread. I'm not going to start sewing it until I have finished Ruth's Quilt (with the cream thread). 4 rows to go!
I also remembered another quilt I have on the go in Hannah Bella fabric that I forgot to mention... that needs white thread too so I'll work on that at the same time. Maya was nearly called Bella, we changed our mind on the way to hospital to be induced, so I had stockpiled a heap of this pretty fabric to make her a quilt. Since she is 3 in September I had better get onto it... x Rachel
