A small flannel quilt

I have being away for a a couple of days and enjoying the sporadic weather in Ireland - when I was packing I threw one of our smallie packs of flannel with a half yard of great spotty flannel  into the case ... thinking ... I might be able to knock up a small little cozy quilt for a gift when I am away.

 Having a usual no plan I started cutting ... aware of the fact that the pieces are small - 26 by 23cm - I wanted to make the most of them with the pattern  and mix in the spots also ...
The backing was made with a cozy blanket that I got last year to back a  quilt .. and this is the fourth quilt that I have got out of this good value blankie.

This is the smallie pack that I used and also pictured is the spot flannel.

Oh yes - nearly forgot - we will be drawing for our giveaway when we get back.. so I shall keep you posted ... many thanks for staying tuned....

GIveaway for a wet day

The weather has seriously let us down recently .. with the days of rain, rain and more rain .. I think that we had our Summer in May ... and to be honest we have just got to face the fact..

 I really figured that all of you lot out there needed a little bit of a cheer up - so we are having a little giveaway. 

We have had a lovely delivery of Scandinavian inspired cottons .. So I figured they would be a nice prize.

The question that I would like you to answer out there in order to enter is ...

If the sun came out tomorrow .. for a whole day ( yes proper sun that would last at least 10 hours) .. how would you spend your day?

-The prize is this great little fabric stack 16 fat quarters - worth approx £50.00 

-The competition is open to the UK and Europe and I will post to the winner

-The competition will run until Monday the 16th of  July

- Please leave your comment on this blog

-I will notify the winner via this blog and Facebook .. so keep and eye on us  

Silly answers will be looked upon fondly .. I would probably fill up the paddling pool and go for a soak .... 

Lots of Luck to everyone- gwen 

Can't wait until next week to try and get your hands on these goodies - you can always have a goo in our shop for a sneaky peek...
