Yesterday was the start of the Oakshott Lipari blog hop that has been organised by Lynne from Lily’s Quilts. I feel truly honoured to be part of this blog hop as I love Oakshott fabrics and have quite a few in my stash. You’ll see what I’m making with my gorgeous bundle at the end of the month as Swiss customs decided they liked the Liparis so much they held onto them for 10 whole days! I was actually supposed to start the blog hop on the 3rd but as I didn’t get my fabric until the 5th that wasn’t possible.
You might be wondering why I didn’t tell you about the blog hop earlier but I have been really ill with a bad cough and a fever. I would like to ask you to go and check out Allison’s beautiful dress which she made with her bundle of Liparis and some yardage. I love it so much I want to make something similar.
I mean, just look at those gorgeous colours! They are even more beautiful in real life.
Right, here’s the schedule for the rest of the blog hop:
