Loose Threads

There are lots of loose ends that need tidying up


If I had just tidied up as I went things wouldn't look so bad.

So first off.  About the recent giveaway.  Thanks to everyone who entered.  In particular, to those who became followers, and especially to those who blogged about the giveaway in their posts.

I wish I could send a copy of the book to everyone who wanted it.

I got so much out of the giveaway, so I feel like a winner.  All those fantastic design tips were brilliant.  For every comment I got the opportunity to go and visit blogs  and see profiles of so many amazing quilters.  I saw lots of fantastic sites.  It was a HUGE and unexpected bonus for me.

Of course, when the sewing room is complete I will post some pictures.  Think early 2012 here.

The book was won by Janet from Canada and is on its way as I write.  Check out her blog.  From where I sit, her lifestyle is extremely exotic.

"Hexagonia" has not progressed much.


Kate and I were both wildly excited about the idea that she had a fat quarter of the required fabric in her stash.  Right fabric...wrong colourway.  But at least we could put a name to the fabric since I had so carelessly cut off the selvedge.  It is from Harriet Hargraves 1840s Birds and Basics range from 2004.

Now I am just waiting to see if Melinda can find any in her stash.

Glad your giveaway left you feeling like a winner. And great that you have at least discovered the name of your background fabric for Hexagonia. It increases the probability that you will find the extra that you need. I love the top hexie in the photo.

The hexagons are awesome. I don't know if I have the patience to get mine all lined up like that. I am happy to just get them made. LOL Great job!
