We have been given the go-ahead to show our Sample Swap offerings at SIT in Canberra this weekend - this is where 6 people form a circle, do a little dance (yes, compulsory), and place a item that they have lovingly made for the other 5 participants joining in.
It is great fun - both to make (well, maybe a little nervewracking, cos, you know, it is a huge representation of the quality of your sewing (NO, not really!!!)
People make allsorts of really different things - exactly what SIT is all about - different people with different crafty loves and blogging styles, but we want to hang out together and learn about each other and catch up with each other's lives.
My winning collection (from Hawthorne Threads) of Washi Tape by Rashida Coleman-Hale (she even posted a comment on Flickr that she loves them - big hug to you Rashida!)
Thanks Louise for the suggestion of Granny Squares cushions
These are 3.5" (not the regular 2.5") with Quilter's Linen by Robert Kaufman for the 'background' solids.
Just realised I hadn't taken a full size photo of the magenta one - 2nd from the top!
Too lazy to do it now
Wacky photo but here are the backs - this was harder to choose than the fronts, that's for sure - I'm not a big user of solids, even a non-solid solid like this fabric, so it was a bit of a struggle.
Some recycled ribbon for the stays.
For this, I should be thanked. You really didn't want Me to sew that in!!
I hope others like them
Hubbie has put his order in; he likes the magenta one the best - who'd thought!
