Klosjes Gift & Postal Delivery

Posted by Picasa

Klosjes this week 2 but they are not for me , Shame as I love the colour combination of these two that I have framed.
The ingredients were - Take one pine box frame from Hobby Craft-Paint in Farrow & Balls Off White No 3- back with linen, make two klosjes in Rouenneries fabric - sew on buttons and what do you have - One gift for a friend who I am off to visit in a couple of weeks.

I have also completed my Goose in the Pond that is now ready to go off to Rosemary at Frome Valley Quilting.

Then look what Mr Postie delivered. OMG it is just so easy to shop until you drop on the Internet.
I fell in love with this range of fabrics called Vanity Fair from Nancy Gere. I got them from Autumn Rose Quilting I have got to say the service was so efficient , they arrived in 4 working days. They also came straight through without being held up in customs which is a miracle. They are gorgeous and I have them on the table and keep walking past stroking them.
You may well ask what I am going to do with them - Well I have a few ideas up my sleeve but nothing concrete yet! You may just have to wait a while before you see a quilt emerging.

Lastly I spoke to Jo at Cowslip Workshops she mentioned that British Patchwork and Quilting magazine had written an article about her. What a good article it is too and richly deserved.
I also noted that in the section Wandering the Web they have picked Lori's blog as Blog of the Month. Well done to Lori-you are famous in the UK and you didn't even know about it.
Have a great weekend.
