The pattern and kits to make these cute shopping list/notepad holders were. given to Dayspring Quilters in Norfolk for IQD 2011. The pattern is copyright of Village Fabrics Ltd in Oxfordshire. Please reward their generosity by taking a look at their website: www.villagefabrics.co.uk I made the pink and green one for my DD and the blue and cream one below for myself.
I'm not very happy with these butterflies but they are done and dusted and I've learned from them. I made them for a fabric postcard swap and thought cutting them out would be interesting. That's one word for it. The theme was "my favourite film" and I chose "The Butterfly Effect" - a great film, much, much better than my postcards!
This next project is coming along nicely. As you can see it is a New Zealand themed wall hanging and I've got it quilted and ready for squaring up and binding. A wet afternoon should see it finished and hanging on the wall in our bach in Norfolk.
I'm also planning to get fabric to go with "our" panel Michelle, can you believe it? While I was having my little retreat I worked out the design for the Essence of Clair table runner so I hope that will work out well and I think (!!) I know what I'm doing with our lovely Spring panel so watch this space closely! I'm really enjoying working on all these NZ projects, they remind me of a great holiday and all the lovely people I met.
