12 little packages of some very treasured fabric. Those 12 little packages will hopefully be heading out into the big wide world tomorrow, once I've bought some ziplock bags and a tasty little surprise to pop in with each one. Oh, and yes I said 12 packages, in case there are any eagle-eyed Bees out there that are good at counting ;)
Today is the first day of our school holidays. As anybody in the UK could probably predict, it is pouring rain. I have 2 children in the living room doing some kind of wrestling involving cushions and armchairs, and my oldest boy is upstairs sulking. Sigh.....
I have shut the living room door and am about to dive into this delicious pile of fabric. I woke up this morning and read this post by Cluck Cluck Sew and had an overwhelming urge to pull out my bundle of Freshcut by Heather Bailey. I have been admiring it for over 2 years, but have been waiting for the perfect pattern. I've pulled some co-ordinating extras (on the left - Thankyou Jo!) I'm going to chop it all up, and ignore the children and cushions that I can see rolling around the living room floor!
Right, I'm off to start cutting :)
