Just a couple of items to clear the decks before I embark on Eleanor's Quilt!
I have neglected to thank Donna for sending me some cat fabric scraps - she's made such a lovely quilt to make you smile with these, and offered to send me the rest though the post! How lovely was that! She asked for a postcard in return 'of something English'.
I live in a suburb of the second city, Birmingham, so sent her one from there - it's not very touristy, so the postcard showed some of our finest Victorian civic buildings, and our modern Symphony Hall which is very well thought of and is host to many fine acts.
I think I know who got the better end of the deal in that particular exchange! Thank you again, Donna!
Oh - talking of posting things, the Secret Garden fabric went off to Reenie in NY state after she won the July QAL draw, so I hope that's winging it's way to her safely.
Now although I have a shiny new project to work on, I didn't feel that I could have fun with my new fabrics without having finished off the camera case for the Next-Doors, which I started this just ages ago.
Blooming funny shape, cameras!
The only thing I had to do was attach a Velcro strip to, yet this one thing took me longer than the entire rest of the project - no idea why I kept putting it off, it was only a half hour job, and it's now out the way!
Hurrah! Now where's that cutter...
