Sunday was Upmarket day and silly me forgot my camera so I don't have any photos to show you from the day but it all went well. It was wonderful to see lots of familiar faces from all my different paths. I was most especially touched by one lady and her daughter. They came up to me and said that they had purchased on of my Notebook Keeper Patterns and Kits from the June Upmarket. She wanted to let me know that they had a great time making it together and found the instructions easy to read and they have since made some more. That really made my day. Lots of people wanted to know which felt character was next in the works for a kit so I will put them on the "To Do List."
This is the next stage in my secret sewing project. All the squares have now been cut and re-arranged and sewn back together. I was amazed at how quickly it all came together. This is called a "Disappearing 9 Patch". If you google disappearing 9 patch tutorial there are a whole heap of tutorials around.
This big pile of Ribbon arrived earlier this week and just in case you didn't know, I just love ribbon. I am not sure it is possible to have to much of it. Mine is all stored on a hanging system called "Ribbon Ring". While it takes a while to sort them all out I just love how all the colours are organised (mine by colour) and don't tangle because they are hanging up.
