The competition involves designing and making a craft item from a 100 x 100 cm piece of fabric chosen from one of four fabulous Country Retreat fabrics.
I chose the Wild Poppies Vermillion design which arrived at the weekend so I have been very busy since it arrived thinking about what to make. It has been such fun !
It is very pretty fabric which I would like to see as blinds in the guest bedroom I think - pity there was not enough fabric to make a blind as my competition entry!
I will blog about my finished item(s) before the end of March, but for now here is a taste of what I have been up to.
Lots of ideas and experimenting happening at the sitting room table!
A small purse is all I have finished so far
Oh and while I was thinking about my competition entry I also made a needle felted broach. It needs a bit more work to finish it off yet but I am pleased with it so far.
I also had to go to the Optician today and have had to order new glasses - but hopefully I will be able to see better to do close up work ( like sewing and crochet) as I have been struggling a lot lately with my current prescription.
