Booking has opened for SkipNorth
15-17 March 2013 will find me and 30 odd other knitters whooping it up in Haworth. Want to join us?

I'm looking forward to it already...

Pay It Forward!

I love a bit of Pay It Forward. I recently saw this on Nati's Blog *and* I was one of the first to comment so I will be receiving something from her within the next year. Yay! Love postal surprises. So...

Here are the "rules" (as taken from Nati's blog):

1. I will create a crafty gift for each of the first three people who comment to this post. This is a surprise, and will arrive to you anytime within the next 365 days.

2. In signing up for Pay it Forward, you are committing yourself to the project...someone pays it forward to you, so you pay it forward to others! Just post this, or something similar so others can get involved. Basically you will create your own post where you create gifts for 3 people as well.

3. You need to have an active blog of your own...(or some way to post up your Pay it Forward info like a flickr, pinterest, or Facebook account). Basically you'll need a place to announce your own Pay it Forward and to post some pics of the process.

4. Aft…

International Rainbow Charm Square Swap

This is a heads up about a swap I'll be running in December and the New Year.

Sign-ups don't start until the beginning of December but you can leave me your email address so I can remind you when that comes around.
Loading... Questions? They should all be answered on the swap page but leave me a comment if not.

Surprisingly easy to do really. And then a rotary cutter and a ruler later...
At Festival of Quilts I got some glue to use with applique instead of double sided fusable stuff and it works really well. The fabric is a little translucent but considering how cheap they are to make I'm not really bothered by that.
Here are all the combinations. This one is for me and actually had an outing last night as a little change purse. The fabric is called "Dysfunctional Family" and I only bought it for this panel, which is one of many.
This one is for a swap.
Then these three are for xmas presents:
In fact...some of these are already finished...

Bet you can't guess what kind of swap it is. And then look how those labels turned out.
Pretty cute huh? I really like making these and …
