I've decided to be a bit brave and enter a competition! It's called Texting While Sewing and the idea is to use a text fabric in a creative way. This will be my first attempt at designing and making a 'picture block' and so far it's gone pretty well :) I messed up one part, but that was during a practice, using some what-was-I-thinking fabric (I'm sure we all have some of that in our collections!).
Here are the fabrics I'll be using, with the all-important text fabric on top:
I'm looking forward to giving this a go. Focusing more on meeting people, making friends and having a block to make a cute cushion with rather than trying to win against far more experienced and talented people! If you're popping by cos you're entering too then I'd love it if you said hi :) Maybe tell me about your what-was-I-thinking fabric. Mine is a muddy, variagated-background green leaf-patterned fabric. Bought when I was in a hurry (shop was about to close) and I needed some backing fabric for my table-runner. Very glad I didn't use it in the end!
