A trip to London wouldn't be complete without a visit to the fabric department of Liberty, and thanks to Needles and Lemons guide to fabric shops in London I was also able to sigh over the fabrics in the many fabric shops on Berwick Street nearby.
How about these to brighten up your day?
Or this for inspiration?
Speaking of inspiration, the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day at the end of last year was so inspiring that I resolved when I started blogging that I would take part in the next Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day, if I could. I am, therefore, delighted to be hosting my first ever Giveaway as part of this year's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day. Prior to starting this blog and being introduced to the joys of quilting I was an obsessive bag maker. I started off making bags for the bridesmaids at my son's wedding and never really stopped. So, in an effort to introduce a fellow blogger to the delights of bag making I have put together the following Giveaway Bag Pack for my first ever Giveaway.
The Giveaway Bag pack includes;
1 Party Purse pattern from Nicole Mallelieu Designs (website)
1 FQ Cream/Blue swirl fabric
2/3yd Blue/Red Flower Zippity doo dah fabric by Sandy Gervais
1 Invisible Sew-in Magnetic Snap
1 Magnetic Snap set
1pr Snap Hooks
1 Loop Handle Purse Frame
2 1" D rings
4 1.5" Gunmetal D rings
There are certainly enough supplies there to get anyone started on their first bag, but I must warn you you may well end up hooked!
To win the Giveaway Bag Pack all you need do is tell me which cakes you would like to have on your Afternoon Tea plate.
International entries are, of course, most welcome! The Giveaway will close at 12.00 GMT on Saturday May 26th, when the winning entry will be randomly drawn. If you are a no-reply blogger please remember to leave your email address in the comment otherwise I will be unable to contact you if you win!
For new visitors to my blog I hope you enjoy your visit and I shall look forward to seeing you again some time soon!
P.S. Don't forget that Beth at Plum & June is hosting the Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop , which is for bloggers who have started blogging in 2011/12. It kicks off tomorrow, Tuesday 22nd May with Kelsey Sews & Billy Button Designs! I shall look forward to meeting you there.
