One hundred :-)

Yep, one hundredth blog post! How about some pillow talk before we get to the giveaway? May is a busy month of birthdays here, resulting in numerous cushions and fabric notebooks to be gifted to friends. Tonight, though, has been pure fabric therapy, just for the love of it...


I saw this pattern a while ago on the fabulous Cluck Cluck Sew blog. Alison has wonderful ideas, is extremely generous with what she shares freely, and has a great looking book coming out soon!


 Her pattern was so easy to follow, and I managed it from start to finish in one evening...


I went with fabrics that I like, but fully expecting it not to turn out so well... Really wish I'd used purples now so it could join my other favourites on the sofa! Best of all, I finally used up my entire stash of wadding offcuts by chopping them all into roughly one inch squares and using them as stuffing. While this one stays at home, these others have been given away recently -





All to good homes! It's easy to give to good friends, and nice when something creative makes them happy. Since this is my hundredth post, which is a significant milestone for a blog started on the spur of the moment, let's do a giveaway here. The item is likely to be a cushion, a bag - 


Or a fabric journal - 



But I will wait and surprise the winner with exactly what! I'd really like it to be something nice for the winner, so the only question you need to answer is: What's your favourite colour? After entering the Fluffy Sheep Rainbow Charm Swap recently, I am anticipating a delivery soon of charm squares designed to suit all tastes, which should enable me to whip something up! Go ahead and enter - yes, even you lurkers! - and I'll pick a winner in a couple of weeks. As a bonus, anyone who follows the blog will be given an extra chance - I'll automatically include those who follow on Bloglovin, but if you follow differently and want a second chance, please comment twice.
Thank you to everyone who makes blogging great fun and full of crafty inspiration!

  1. Hola Fran, estás muy trabajadora, te han quedado muy bonitos los cojines, aunque ya no los conserves, seguro que sus nuevos dueños están muy contentos. Le hice a mi hija uno como el redondo hace tiempo, me gusta mucho ese diseño y las telas que has utilizado. Mi color favorito el azul para la ropa y para el patch cualquiera, me encanta la gama que tu utilizas y me gusta mucho la mezcla con lino.
    Bss.

  6. Happy 1 Hundred! Sorry I don't get to comment that much - funny how a small person can take up so much of your time!!! Thought I was an old hand at kids, but the 3rd one has sent me over the edge lol.
    I love red and purple and most colours except yellow, but you probably already know that ;)

  12. Congratulations on your 100th post!:-) Lovely idea for a giveaway - my favourite colour varies depending on what I admired last! It's usually blue, but in fabric I also love cranberry red.
