One, two, miss a few (four to be precise, but who’s counting?) and here we are on the 187th edition of this jolly blog hop.
I bought the Summersville charm pack a few months ago, because I liked the cute houses, with no clear idea in mind what I would do with it. I browsed around the net looking for a pattern, but most needed at least two charm packs. I kept it safe until I happened across this design, which uses a charm pack and a jelly roll (with the addition of some extra fabric) to make a pair of twin size quilts. Perfect.
As luck would have it Lu Summers had half metres on sale in her Etsy shop and I snapped up a few designs. A jelly roll consists of 2.5” strips and amounts to about 2.5 metres of fabric. I should have enough to cut up. I’ll be adapting the design and adding some Kona solids into the mix. If you are more of a papercrafter and bored of all this sewing talk, don’t despair, there’s something here for you too. Paper tape.
How cute is that? It’s similar to washi tape, only a bit thicker, and you get a whole 50 metres on a roll for £5.95. Bargain! Not that I’m trying to tempt anyone to break their stash diet so early in the year, but it is rather lovely and you could always share with a crafty friend.
I’m heading over to Julia’s place to link up with the rest of the desk hoppers and then it’s into the kitchen to turn all the leftover veg into soup. I seem to have ended up with an abundance of carrots, which I’ll be turning into this family favourite.
Thanks for stopping by.
