Meanwhile, I have found the time to sign up for a new swap. A charm swap being run by the inimitable Sarah at Narcoleptic in a Cupboard. If you love Japanese farbics, like to do paper piecing and/or fussy cutting, or have an urge to do those cool Polaroid blocks then you really need to be in this swap. (But you also need to live in the UK or Ireland - sorry.) Places are filling up fast.
Here's a quilt Sarah made with the charms she got in a swap last year.
How good is that?! If you are interested in the swap then please sign up with Sarah here. If that is not incentive enough to hop on over there and check it out then how about the fact that she is having a fabulous giveaway too.
Finally, if you haven't checked out who is on the blog hop with Plum and June this week then all the links are here. Yesterday Sarah had a great tutorial for a mug rug and January one for a pouch designed to carry quilt blocks. Wonder what awaits us tomorrow from Alison and Cathy?

Super! Embroidered Summersville is always a hit. The brightness of the yellow just lifts everything.ReplyDelete
That polaroid quilt is cool - what a fun idea for a swap! Your embroidery looks great - I've seen some amazing things done with that Summersville fabric. Very clever!ReplyDelete
Maybe I will make a Polaroid quilt with my Japanese swap blocks from last year. I still have most of them.ReplyDelete
Your Summerville embroidery is so pretty. I might try it after I finish the Hexie MF!
