Finish a long finished- and button giveaway winner revealed…

I finished my footstool for the finish-a-long over on Rhonda’s blog that I mentioned quite some time ago now. The first quarter is up by the end of next week (how fast is this year going?!) and I had hardly done anything on it, so the last 3 days I’ve used a spool of thread and finished it just this evening!

Sorry for the rubbishy picture, I need to hoover so I didn’t want to show you any of the other rooms 😀 It’s made from two charm packs and a little bit of orange for the centres, The original Ikea cover is on the inside to cover the seams.

Oh and I also made half a cake today. I didn’t have a smaller tin to make two to stack, and I knew cutting it like a sandwich would fail so I cut it across the cake and made it a bit fat half cake with butter cream and the odd splodge of jam! Look I put little daisies on it 🙂

But of course you’re all waiting to see if you won my box of buttons. Well there were 411 in the box when I counted them, which means the closest person is Fiona who guessed 407! So close! I shall be e-mailing you Fiona 🙂


Patchwork in Progress

My next patchwork project is this footstool I bought from Ikea. It will take two charm square packs to completely cover it with pinwheels and then sew it to the existing cover to save backing fabric. I’m hoping it will be as awesome as I imagine!

Also, I am really looking forward to tomorrow- I’m going to join the Leicester Fabric Guild, and I’ve always wanted to join a guild 😉 Maybe I will have something to share with you from there then!

I am taking part in the button swap over on Crafteroo and have made my swap items, however I won’t be posting til at least tomorrow, maybe after the weekend if I can’t find appropriate wrapping material. I’m really excited because I’ve made something for the first time for this, but can’t reveal yet until my swap partner Amiee receives it!
