Thanks to everyone who made a charm square item for the March Challenge!
I gave all the entrants a number and Mr Random Generator was employed to choose the winning number - 6!
And number 6 was JOY from JoyPatch!!!
As soon as the Post Office opens after Easter I will have this lovely parcel on its way to you...
...some beautiful goodies from *that* shop!
Joy is a fellow Gum Tree Designer and made the prettiest Baseco Bag with her charms (from our fellow designer Dawn's pattern).
Dawn has raised $780 so far in her fundraising for the poor of Baseco, Manila, by selling patterns for this bag. If you haven't purchased a pattern yet, please consider it. Your $4 may be a cappuccino you forgo, but it will be so much more for the people of Baseco.
Purchase your pattern HERE from Dawn's blog for just $4 - there is a photo and link in her sidebar. :-)
"4 for 4 in April!"
I'm not going to have an actual Challenge in April, but I am going to ask you to spend April finishing some UFOs with me. I thought we might aim for one UFO finish per week...will you join me?
4 UFOs completed in 4 weeks - now won't that be great!!?
I know some people are verrrrry good and do not accumulate UFOs, so perhaps if you are one of those you might consider offering to finish a friend's UFO for her? Friendship, UFOs and fun...sounds good to me. :-)
I have a few UFOs, but Blossom has many, so I am going to finish mine and help her with her pile.
There won't be a giveaway for this because clearing a UFO pile means we all win.
Whilst I cannot show you any more sneaks of my new designs just yet, I can show you these lovely 10" squares of Tilda fabric that arrived from France yesterday. I am going to play with some Tilda things over the April school break as a reward for all my own design hours.
This is the first time I have seen Tilda fabrics up close and they are prettier than you can imagine!
I have tried to track down a store in the US that sells Tilda yardage but no success, and there is only one I know of in Australia. If you know of a US store where I can purchase Tilda fabrics would you let me know please?
Back to my secret sewing...
God bless you all!
