I’ve uploaded a heap of Christmas pattern bundles to Etsy , Craftsy and to my website. They’re great value and there’s still time to make the projects for Christmas! I will reformat the Santa Sacks pattern this week and make it a stand alone pattern.
I’ve got a bad case of the blues this week, and staring at half-finished quilts isn’t helping at all :o> I made a colossal newbie mistake this week too, which ended in an almost finished quilt top being binned. I didn’t check the colour-fastness of a piece of check fabric and the teeniest squares of red dyed fabric ran all over the quilt and completely ruined it. I was so peeved with myself, I’ve been sewing for more than 30 years and should’ve known better! In my own defence I tested the solid reds and the batiks, but thought I’d be okay with the check, it hardly had any red in it. Big. Mistake. I tried a number of things to remove the red dye, but they didn’t work, and the bin was the last option.
I hope you all have a lovely week. I’m off to kick myself up the backside and cheer up, I hate it when I feel like this, curse stupid cyclic depression! Pandas and Teddy Bears are on the agenda this week. toni xx
