Have you been to my giveaway post yet?

One of the great things about holidays and a New Year is that I have the time and the excuse to clean the sewing room. Not to mention needing space to sew and to find things.
I was given this huge amount of fabric before Christmas and it has slowly been oozing out of the bag, slinking all over the floor and tripping unsuspecting family members.
There's every sort of material that you could imagine, matt, shiny, stretchy, metallic, sequinned, lacy...and many of them in several different colour ways - they came via a friend of a friend...don't you just love those sort of friends?
They are now safely stored in a plastic box, catalogued in my mind(!), ready for when inspiration strikes. Some of them will very likely turn up as a bag, lining or pocketsWhat I've been making...
I've been working on the giveaway prize (from this post)
Catherine courtesy of her brilliant gift ceritficates (it also helps when Christmas and your birthday coincide - thanks loving family).
Quilts for Queensland.
Here's the finished product - I just love it and am really excited about how pretty it turned out. It has a scissor holder, needle book, pincushion and a biggish pouch for project materials.
I hope to make another one - and I know just where to find an interesting stash of material too....
thanks for taking a peek over the fence...
