More Evandale pics

I was SO excited to have a go at fabric painting! I have loved these painted and stitched Teddy blocks for SO long but always thought it would be too difficult to do....... But, with Libby there to teach us I found it SO inspiring! And, I must say it was SO easy! I am pretty pleased with my effort, I know that I will be doing this again........... Don't mind that black spot, I think it is a little bit of fluff lol


Here is my sewing efforts for the day.... Minus the flower petals, I did them when I came home!



Having *loved* the Teddy painting, I went over to Libby's display to find myself something to do at home (when I find my paints....... I knew where they were before we moved lol), and came across this BEAUTIFUL pattern, bag and pearls included!! So sweet!!


I also fell in love with Marg Low's 'Aunt Ivy's' pattern, so that found it's way in my bag!


So, I bet you all are thinking...... What did I win?! This:


'Remember When' by Libby Richardson Block Of The Month pattern set!! WOW!!! See what I mean, gobsmacked, totally, TOTALLY gobsmacked! Funny thing was, when we were seated they handed out the tickets..... I was given number 3 which is Dennis's lucky number and I said to Roseanne, I am going to win something today....... Mind you, I got a shock when my number was called out! Thankyou to Libby for donating such a wonderful prize, I will have so much fun making it - sometime soon!
