Here I am sipping martinis - because I'm a winner!
(Of course, you do realise that it's not really me, don't you?)
Just a photo in a crochet mag I happened to be reading whilst sipping coffee in my local.
So, why am I metaphorically sipping martinis?
Because, I won this!!!!
The lovely Clare over at Selfsewn Blog, had a giveaway to celebrate her newly relocated home on the web, (she used to be summerfete), and out of 102 entries, she picked me.
Clare is a VERY talented young lady (actually, not sure how old she is, but she sure looks young in her photo) and is championing the side for the English paper piecing method of patchwork.
I have been intending for ages to make one of thse blocks myself - huh, we all now how long those 'Im going to one day' lists get - and now I will be the proud owner of one of hers.
She has tutorials on her blog for hand-piecing, and a really great one on 'fussy cutting'.
Don't know what that is, then, check it out.
OOOhhhhh, I should be so lucky,
lucky, lucky, lucky.
