I’ve gone and done it.
First I joined the Brit Quilt Swap Round 3. I’m very excited about it as I love swaps. Not that I’ve joined that many before, this is only my third. However, I’ve loved everything I’ve received so far. You might remember the goodies I got at the Fat Quarterly Retreat. They are all in use on a daily basis and remind me of a fabulous weekend and some really nice people.
Then there’s the gorgeous knitted cushion I received from Christina. It sits on my bed and makes me happy whenever I look at it.
I got my partner’s details and as this is a secret swap I can’t tell you much but I’ll make sure to post a few sneak peeks as soon as I know in which direction the quilt is going. One thing I can tell you is that I will have to buy some fabric as I don’t have much in my partner’s favourite colour palette. It’s very exciting to be making something out of my comfort zone.
Second, I joined a bee and am so excited about it. I’ve met most of the members that have signed up so far at the FQ Retreat which makes it a little less daunting for me. I hope they’ll be honest and tell me if I mess up. I already know what fabric I’m going to send out when it’s my turn.
I won this fat quarter bundle of Tanya Wheelan’s Sugar Hill at the FQ Retreat and think it’s perfect for this.
PS Come back tomorrow as I will be having a giveaway.
