Howdy folks, how has your week been? Mine has been spent catching up on household chores and getting that all important annual breast check. Have you had your breasts checked lately? Pick up the phone and make that appointment lovelies.
I’ve a couple of things to share with you this week. First up, June’s Red Boots/Thermoweb giveaway. This month’s prize includes (1) pack of HeatnBond Ez-Print Lite, (1) pack of HeatnBond Iron-on Lightweight Fusible Interfacing, a selection of Red Boots patterns, and (1) Ecosilk shopping bag. You can find how to enter here.
I use my stash of HeatnBond Interfacing for all sorts of things. I fuse it to background blocks where the fabric is a little too see-through, I cut it in strips to stabilise the fraying edges of applique and pieced blocks, and it’s great for fusing to the back of stitchery blocks.
I can also highly recommend the EcoSilk shopping bags. Hubby and I have used them for about seven years now and they are the perfect replacement for single-use plastic shopping bags. No affiliations or sponsorship, just a great local product.
The lovely Joan from Moosestash Quilting wrote a wonderful blog post about her “Pachyderms in my Petunia Patch” quilt this week. Joan’s quilt is gorgeous don’t you think and her quilt-name is much better than my lame ‘Patchwork Elephants’ ha ha! Pop on over to her blog to say Hi.
Kerry also shared a piccy of her (almost finished) ‘Mr Fox’s Garden‘ quilt with me. Kerry added an extra row of foxes and flowers to make the quilt longer. It’s going to look amazing when it’s finished.
Thanks for letting me share your photos guys. Your photos always make my day. xx
In some not-so-good news, Etsy is increasing their fees by 40% in mid-July. I won’t be increasing my standard prices and will suck up the extra fees, however it will affect $4 Fridays. I’ll have more info about that when I do the math.
In other news I am removing the bonus templates from ‘The Land Down Under‘ quilt for all future pattern sales.
Well that’s it for tonight, I’m heading off to make a coffee and then I’m going to clean up my work space. Time to get ready for another happy quilt. Cows anyone?
Enjoy your weekend, toni xx
