Fresh Sewing Day, Small Blog Meet and Competition Winners

This month's Fresh Sewing Day brings tea cosies, competition winners and other blogasphere news so don't miss a line here today.  Firstly some more tea cosies have been made this month.  This Liberty lawn print one will be given to Mandy today for her birthday:


And these two (front and back shown) were made just because:
Secondly, we need to announce the winners of the Sew Fresh Fabrics summer bundle contest.

After going round and round in circles because there were so many fabulous mosaics, I chose these  two because a mix of value, scale and type of print in each one together with some story telling elements would both make for really interesting quilts:

If you made either of these mosaics, get in touch with me via a comment on this post and we will arrange for your bundle to be sent to you.
