It started with a very nice email from Heather, proposing to buy the APQ2008 calendar in the US, and then send it to me. I was thrilled ! After some research, Heather realized that the calendar was only available for the magazine subscribers, which explains why we can't find a Web link where to get it. So Heather has now ordered the calendar for me, and I'll soon get it in my mailbox. Thanks, Heather, I'll have a thought for you the whole year through , thanks also to the numerous friends who tried to help me...
Then came May Britt, talking about msn, and I finally decided to jump into it as well. Ooooh, what fun ! It was like being together in a sewing room. We talked about our Christmas home made gifts, and she showed me a very nice pattern of a small tea bags purse. I wanted to have a try and, of course she challenged me : not only did she give an msn appointment at 6pm, but she added she wanted a picture. That's the May Britt's method to boost you : no excuse ! LOL
And it works ! Hereunder is a picture of my first - still incomplete - tea bags purse. I still have to make the lining, and a cute tea-bag tag, to be attached to the zipper.Isn't it cute to place in your bag, filled with your favourite tea-bags, when going to a quilt meeting ? It still needs some improvements, but practice will help my progress (I intend to make a bunch of them ! HeeHee....)
November Challenge with Hanne : (Little Sweethearts stitchery quilt)
I stitched 4 additional ones, this week. I'm planning to finish the last ones this coming week, so that I can work on the sashings and cornerstones by next weekend.
