Imagine my excitement yesterday when I went over to T!ms blog to see his September tag and found out that I had been chosen as a winner for my August tag - this one here:
Whoo hoo! I won a voucher to spend at Simon Says Stamp - which obviously I have gone and spent four times over before 7am this morning!
Yesterday I decided to have play and get on with my Sons request for a Darth Vader quilt - honestly children don't make things easy for you do they!
I have two yards of Star Wars patterned material that I bought in the States but my Son has decided that he would like a big Darth Vader in the middle! So not to be put off I went onto google images, found a picture of Darth that had outlines in white, printed it out on A3+ sized paper, pinned it directly onto a piece of black material and then just sewed straight over the top of the white lines with white thread and this is the result:
hasn't it come out brilliantly! I am really pleased with the results - just need to find the time to make it into a quilt now!
Well that's my eventful weekend so far, am now off to go and look at star quilting patterns to see what I can come up with for the rest of this Star Wars creation.
A big hello to both Janie and Ria - thank you both so much for following me!
Thanks for looking - Chuffed winner from Solihull
