Aren't they famous last words...
Some may even imagine that hell has frozen over......
why you ask? well because these have arrived at my doorstep today
Those that know me will attest to my shall we say, 'lack of love' for Kaffe fassett fabrics.
This week my boss announced that she would be leaving at the end of term, ie next week.
She is also a patchworker so I thought it would be a great idea to make her a signature quilt with all staff signing it for her. She also loves Kaffe Fassett fabrics! Oh no...
Now remember that deadline??
Thanks to the wonderful staff at L'uccello who made some fabric selections and sent them express post so that I would get them today making sure I can make an even start. I hope to have the blocks all ready for signing by monday.
I wish there was a patron saint of patchworkers as I would be lighting many candles in her honour!
wish me luck!
I had a lovely day out today to get me into the patchworking mood with Liz and her friend Kaaren.
We went on an adventure to The Patchwork teahouse where we had a lovely lunch and I picked up the quilters muslin for the signature blocks. On the way home, well sort of on the way home, we stopped into the new Somerset Patchwork shop that is now in Vermont. Lovely new light and roomy shop with lots of civil war temptations. I just picked up a few pieces of cream print fabric to put towards my stash for sweet william baskets. A project that has been giving me nightmares! I better make a start soon or I may never take the plunge. Josie where are you???
Thanks Liz for taking me on a Cook's tour it was wonderful.
Here's to the weekend, hope you all get some crafty time..
