More entries Ladies...they are looking good...keep up the great work.
that is a great looking basket Amanda, very festive.
Diana yours is very Christmassy, it looks hard to do.
Carolyn made this table topper and decorated the basket, The Crazy Christmas trees are stitched with gold metallic thread using decorative stitches giving it a little sparkle.
We only have a couple of days to go ladies get those entries in.
|My New Book Fresh from the UK|
I am so excited because my new book has arrived 9 days after I placed the order on the Book Depository
It has arrived in good timing just before the beginning of the challenge for September, which of course is a Doll...
This book has many doll patterns in it for Christmas so you could see why I am excited about getting it right now.
I have just placed another order with them today so look forward to the next delivery...did I mention there is no charge for postage to Australia (not sure about other countries) so I managed to get the book for a steal really.
In case you could not tell from the picture the book is a Tilda book by Tone Finnanger.
I really love her work. I have to say thanks to the ladies in My online Craft group for telling me about The Book Depository...I am sure it was one of the US gals that let us know about it. That is how we share good information about different places to buy our crafting supplies.
Take a look at the challenge entries for August in earlier posts...they are coming along just fine.
Well I best be off to read this lovely treasure...I was thinking of gardening tomorrow but have decided to get a head start on my September challenge item instead...
keep stitching Happily
|4 Fat Quarters of Christmas Fabric|
Here is the promised "Extra" prize for August...isn't it lovely.
We have 3 entries so far so the odds are high to win a prize...I hope you are all having a wonderful time sewing away preparing your entry for this month.
Just to clarify...the challenge called for a table decoration/ centrepiece...this means either a table decoration such as we have seen with Rita's entry of napkin rings or a centrepiece that we have seen with Karen's tree.
Sorry if this has caused anyone confusion...I hope this makes it a bit easier for you all.
well keep an eye on the countdown timer for the end of the challenge...make sure you get your entry in by the last day of the month (Aussie time). as long as the timer has 1 hour left on it you can put your entries in. this is over the end time but just to be a bit fairer for those living on the west coast of America it should get you past midnight into the first of the month.
so enough jibber jabber from me...I am going to have another go at the string squares I am trying out...wish me luck.
