In the Mail - More Sandi Henderson fabric!

I recently bought some beautiful (and nice and cheap) fabric from this fantastic etsy store: Sewlovefabrics. It arrived quickly and with some bonus charm squares thrown in :)

I'm going to use the dots for the binding on the Ginger Blossom baby quilt, and the cherries and the apples on a quilt I'm still thinking up for myself. I just can't resist that Farmers Market fabric :)

Giveaway at Retromummy!

I don't usually blog about giveaways, but I couldn't go past this one at Retromummy - such lovely fabric and such a generous prize by Corrie :)

Working on... a baby quilt

Ok, so I suddenly found myself with some free time tonight, and it occurred to me that it would be a good idea to post on my blog before the new year! So here is the first post in a new series: Working on. That way I can post snippets of my WIPs without feeling that I have to actually finish something before I can reveal it :)

And my first WIP is a baby quilt that I'm working on for a friend's baby girl. I am using Ginger Blossom by Sandi Henderson - how I love her fabric *sigh*. It is going to be yet another Disappearing 9 Patch, simple but pretty, which is perfect for a quick baby quilt.
