Small Blog Meet 2

Hello all, happy Yorkshire Day!  I don't really know what it's all about as I've only lived here 10 years and no one has seen fit to give me the Yorkshire FAQ.  

This is just a short post to show what I've been up to so I can take part in the Small Blog Meet and Fresh sewing day over at Lily's Quilts.  

What HAVE I been up to?  Ummmm, not too much actually.  I've gone back to work after a long time without a job and it has seriously cut into my leisure time.  I've managed to make some progress on the mini quilt I'm making for the Brit Quilt Swap 3 over on Flickr.  The pic I'm posting is just before I finished sewing on the binding.  

I think it's turned out reeeeeeealy well!  As they say up north here, I'm chuffed to bits!  Getting the binding on was a bit of a struggle due to my little helper...

Maggie doesn't want this to go to my swap partner.  

The other thing I worked on was a graphic for issue 10 of Fat Quarterly, "Sew Britannia!".  It's my take on the classic war time poster using the FQ colours.

Feel free to download it from my Flickr photostream and print out a copy.  If you want it in some custom colours ask me nicely and I may just oblige!
