Sew It Together 2012 is only a week and a bit away so there's no time to S.I.T. still.
Our amazing organiser, Sheridan, has kindly allowed me to have a little market stall to showcase my products, so I have been die-cutting like crazy. There are stacks of packs of fabric hexagons all over the place, and I'm working on some other ideas too. (Sshh, top secret for now.)
I have to admit I'm not just looking forward to the workshops and stitching sessions - I'm looking forward to the loot as well. There will be prizes and goody bags and too-tempting market stalls. Can you imagine what it's going to be like with sponsors like Saffron Craig, The Red Thread, Suzy Hausfrau and others (including me!) - way way better than the Cadbury easter showbag.
We'll also be swapping stuff with other SITters. I was too late to join in on the Name Badge Swap so I made one for myself from half-inch hexies.
Which reminds me ... check out an amazing work-in-progress on Grit's blog. The neatest half-inch hexies you'll ever see.
I've just finished making my 5 items for the Sample Swap. I don't want to spoil the surprise so you don't get to see inside the boxes, sorry!
I couldn't wait to get started so here's the block I made last weekend.
I'm using the Flora range by Lauren and Jessie Jung for Moda and I already know that I am going to love love love it. I'm planning to use a very sunny yellow for the background and a strawberry red for the centres, but I'll wait until I've done a few more blocks before deciding.
It's going to be such a cheery quilt and a cheery weekend. Only 10 sleeps to go ... starting now! Nighty-night.
