I'm so excited to be the featured quilter over at Amy's Creative Side today. Amy asked me to send her all the information a few months ago and I had totally forgotten about it, so it was a lovely surprise this morning! Thank you to all my friends for leaving such sweet comments - you have almost had me in tears, dammit!
Another lovely thing was the arrival of a fab parcel from Empress Mills, courtesy of a giveaway held by Alison at Little Island Quilting. There was a whole load of gorgeous cotton thread, some bright red polyester thread (that has already been nicked by the 9-year-old for Very Important Sewing purposes), invisible thread and some lovely silky Egyptian cotton fabric. I can't wait to try out the cotton thread - it's 50 wt, like my favourite (but very expensive) Aurifil. It looks like it could be perfect for piecing. I'll make sure to let you know how it goes.
I've also finished my touch of yellow quilt, but that will have to wait for another day. It's proving very difficult to get decent pictures of the dark grey/black areas. I may have to break out the big guns (the SLR and photoshop). Eeeek!
