Today I ironed my Citrus triangle quilt and am working up the courage to baste it so I can quilt it.... I wonder if this quilt top will join the other five flimsy tops I have waiting for me to tackle?
And guess what? I am now on Instagram. My name is @amyscraftyshenanigans. I have no clue what I am doing and since I have no phone to do it on it makes it rather hard to actually 'instagram' stuff! So far I have used Mr Crafty Shenanigans' phone to take and post two pictures and the rest has been done using the computer. I may be trading my Blackberry in for a Samsung sooooooooon :)
I've been pattern testing an alligator too! So far so good. However, I wish I had picked a darker 'dark' and a different 'light' but hey - you learn as you go right? A full reveal will happen soon. Here is a sneak peek:
And one last thing to show you - I completed the name badge for my (not secret) partner for the #NYlon 2014 Meet on 17th May. I tried to stalk her the best I could.... this is what I came up with:
This name badge was SO MUCH FUN to make. I just HAD to make a tiny swinging handbag to go with the lady in red. Hope Joanne will like wearing it!
Just one more day to sew my heart out then it is back to work. I have a couple of things I really want to work on tomorrow (bake a carrot cake and plant sweetcorn and beans in the garden) so fingers crossed I can cross a few things off the list.
