Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet - no more!

After a few years of doing the Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet feature on the blog, I have decided to retire the idea.  I'm going to have a think about replacing it with something but for the time being, I think it needs to be left to simmer.  So for all of you who are enjoying the heat today, happy 1st of July and here's a quilt I made this week for the Oakshott stand at Festival of Quilts this year.  Please pop by their stand if you're visiting and say hello to the quilt.  It's called Fifty Shades + Grey because it's made of 50 shades of Colourshott and two shades of grey - kits will be available at FoQ.

  2. Thanks for running the blog meets for so long. All good things must come to an end, and it was good to see all sorts of projects from many people. I shall still be reading your blog, even without the Fresh Sewing Day link up.

I shall be forever grateful to you and your blog for providing such a great place for fledgling bloggers to meet :) Look forward to seeing what you do next!
