I won a prize!! No I didn't really win a chicken dinner I won something much nicer than that. The 1st prize in last weeks FNSI! Can you believe it. I still can't.
If you'd like a sneak peek at my prize pop on over to Crafty Vegas Mum and check it out. If you haven't signed up for Friday Night Sew In before.... you are missing out on a good time. It's a lovely bonus that there are goodies to be won every month too.
Still on a giddy high from winning I joined this new group....
Not a lot but enough to get me going I think. I did make a false start last Christmas Day. I'd decided to begin my DJ on that day coz I thought it would be a date I wouldn't forget. I didn't forget the date.... just forgot to work on the quilt!
I did start one block......
This is as far as it got! I handpieced the seams because my tiny brain didn't have a clue that it might be easier to applique the white bits onto the red. I don't think I can stand the strain of hand stitching more curved seams so I figure I'll start the block again... this time with applique.
If you fancy having a go at your own DJ why don't you pop over to Janiac's Unite and request to join. Better get your skates on though. There are only 100 places up for grabs and almost 40 have already been taken.
I'm having a really good week. The Postman brought me.... PARLAN!
