On the sewing front, I've released my latest FREE quilt pattern - Just One Block. I created the block earlier this year for the Benartex Bali Blog Hop and have now turned it into a full quilt pattern and resized the blocks to make the pattern fat quarter friendly. My pattern release coincides with the First Blush Blog Hop for Windham Fabrics and there's a First Blush FQ bundle & Aurifil giveaway on my blog through to Friday, 28 October.
I'm also involved in the Benartex Mug Rug Blog Hop that's taking place this week - there's a free tute for my Sewing Room Mug Rug and a Sewing Room FQ bundle giveaway that ends on Saturday, 22 October.
At some point this week I need to pack - I'm flying to Barcelona on Sunday and won't be back until 1 November. I'll be catching up with a friend, Adelaida, from my days working at The City Quilter who I haven't seen for about 3 years since she went home to Spain. I'm also super excited because all my kids are flying in to join me for a long weekend and my grandson, Oliver, will be there too and I haven't seen him since he was 3 weeks old, exactly 2 years ago.
If you're happy to stick around, thanks for subscribing and let's do this together :D
