I got this great pattern from Pink Penguin and tried it out, it's so little and cute and i got to use some of the fabric i got in my swap from Heather, without using too much so i can make something proper out of it! I haven't made quilt squares before, i can see how people get addicted to cutting out shapes and sewing them together, though i am far from good at getting all the seams to line up. It is deceptively small to, but that just makes it cute! I am making another one for a swap i am doing over at Sunshine and Lemonade. I love this swap stuff.
I also used my first attempt at printing on fabric. I bought "Matilda's Own" Inkjet Printable Fabric. I just printed it, let it dry and soaked it in water to remove any excess ink and dried it, then made a little square (the one with WKD on it, if you can see it) and made a litttle seam tag, just as a try, i am still working on a good dsesign for my tags and whatknots. I bought the Printable paper at my favourite fabric shop, Bayside Quilts. There are some amazing fabrics there and some lovely ladies too. I bet they are just nice to me coz everytime i go in there i spend too much money!
I have a few projects on the go, a tutorial for my Nintendo Case, a Tutorial for a new bag design i am working on and a few other secrets.. I haven't had much time to blog as i am busy creating (or slowly turning into Rainman, if you ask my husband. I am a little worried though as my parcel i sent to America to Heather as part of our swap hasn't got her parcel yet, does any one know how long it should take for a parcel to get from Australian to Ohio? God i hope it hasn't gotten lost, i would be devasted :-(
