I love this Vintage sheet quilt and so wanted to make my own... But i want more variety in the squares or course... And the universe has been loving me recently and up on Meika's Little Treasures i found a Vintage Sheet Fat Quarter swap she has organised. Very Pleased and Plus it's only in Tasmania so no sending overseas (another country i mean). Makes it a little bit cheaper on the post side of things.
Get in quick as the deadline ends today... and the more swappers... the more variety for me!!!

After looking at Hokey's Etsy store i feel in love with her wallets and all the cute fabric she uses to make them...
So guess how thrilled i was when she put up a "Pay It Forward" scheme up on her blog. I would love to get something hand made off her.
Thanks to Warner Bros
This is how it works...
The first three people who comment on this post will get a little handmade gift from me sometime in the next 365 days. All you need to do is "Pay-it-Forward" to 3 people on your blog in exchange.
Make sure when you leave a comment you let me know your email and blog address so I can contact you.
For more info about paying it forward check this out.

This fabric was screaming at me to be made into something. So i used it to make my very first pin cushion. A mouse i found here. Very easy. My couch just couldn't take me sticking pins in it again. It just loves snuggling up to Rupert. Be careful of the pins buddy.

Another Quilt top finished.... I was about to post photos last night before i realised i hadn't put the stars on. There's always something to take the wind out of my sails. I couldn't wait to get home from work today so i could finish it. I'm going to try and machine quilt it myself... with a little help from my fairy quilt mother... ie Bernadette...
I love the mailman.... I adore the Flutterby fabrics. They are so me... and i love the ladybugs through it. I also got some fabrics for the backings of other finished quilt tops... and some cupcake fabric for a Cupcake and tea swap... Which reminds me i should enquire about sending tea overseas..
This is Rupert wearing his PJ's that i got from Hobart. In my defense... he's short haired and sleeps in the laundry...
