Hi everyone, I hope you are you all snuggled up by the fire on this cold, dark, rainy evening.
Here is our newest creation ready for Kirstie Allsopp’s Christmas Handmade Fair at Manchester Central this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, ‘Linda’s shopping Bag’ designed to help you avoid having to buy plastic bags. I couldn’t decide which colourway I liked the best so I’ve pictured two. Thank you Vicky Black for your suggestions for the acorns, the vibrant colours work really well. If you want to buy the pattern or kit you can by visiting my website www.quiltingantics.co.uk
I added this pattern and kit to the website today. Which made me think about all the ones that I haven’t shared lately, we have been very busy creating new designs throughout the autumn show season and I haven’t shown off our goodies for a while so this is a purely bragging post.
The pattern for these scrumptious pumpkins has been a free give away to people who join our mailing list or buy things from us online. (Newsletter going out any day now if you’ve been waiting for your pattern.)
Michaela Smith came up with this brilliant design for a sewing case. I have plenty of kits available in a variety of colours; if you need an idea for Christmas prezzies for your sewing buddies these are brilliant
Bunny in the Brambles was an idea born whilst my daughter and I were at Sandown quilt show. The leaves were inspired by the ones that Michaela Smith
used on her awesome Holly and the Ivy wreath and the bunny is modelled on our very own French Lop Bruce. Bunny in the Brambles arrived as a fully completed project but when I came home and described it to Sue she got to work and tweaked it into what we have today. The blackberries were made using advice from Michaela on simple stumpwork so the whole thing is a real team collaboration. Each person who contributed has added a little bit of magic to this wall hanging including my mother in law who disposed of the tatty old sticks I left by my back door thinking they were rubbish as it meant I had to source a new stick and I love the new one I found.
Do you remember that I shared my lovely kingfisher a while back? Well since then I’ve created the heron; they are made to go as a pair, which is your favourite?
Last but not least here are my Doorstop Diva’s. A great bit of fun that can be jazzed up with handbag jewellery, beads and bells.
If you want to purchase any of the designs that I have bragged about tonight go to www.quiltingantics.co.uk and you will find these plus loads more other things as well.
