Tuesday really was my lucky day, I went out looking for some backing fabric for a quilt and came home with a wonderful hexagon flower garden unfinished quilt that I found in a charity shop for £10.
I will have to unpick a row from the top or bottom to complete one of the sides which is 3 flowers short and then hopefully finish it. The papers are still in it and although not newspapers there was one piece with the date on advertising a holiday, closing date 12/12/79 of course it might not have been made then but it is the only date to go on.
not much else to share, this is my crazy block for october
I also entered 2 pieces into the local show which had textiles, art, photography, other crafts, flowers veg etc and was held in out local park. The show has been running for 6 years now and I entered the first 3 and won each time, I did not enter for 2 years then at the last moment decided to take one of the Tula Pink throws and my crazy hanging down, I came away with a 1st and 2nd in the textiles and a 1st for the overall winner covering all the crafts, this was not a big deal as there were only a few entries. I now have a great big trophy which I have to own up and say is on the windowsill in the down stairs loo! The trophy gets returned in a years time. Needless to say I am feeling pretty pleased with myself!
