Bit of a challenge

My new BOM arrived today,been really looking forward to this one.Its called Pumpkinville,from The Fat Quarter Shop.The colours first caught my attention,all those bright Autumn colours.
Now I have the pattern book and the first 2 blocks ,oh dear it's going to be a bit of a challenge for me.




I will read everything first(I never do that,very much a dive straight in sort of girl) make sure I have it in my head .....I am a bit worried already .....I wanted to do needle turn appliqué ,but not sure now,because I am very new to it,will decide later.so here it is ,Pumpkinville ,don't you think it's just gorgeous,Well girls ,lets hope I havnt bitten of more than I can chew.Lovely Sharon from Lilibellelane lane,I may be writing to to soon and commissioning you to finish it for meLOL.....
Wish me luck.
My first bit of needle turn,Anni Downs Some kind of wondeful,the fist panel has thes jeans,so thouhgt I woul have a go at these because they were not too fiddley.Not very straight, but happy with my first serious attempt.

I put flowers on the legs of mine,bacause during the 70s when I wore bell bottom jeans,thats what I put on them.Was always into flowers.
When I went to festival of quilts,I was looking for a small ironing board ,I found one but they were very expensive so I diddnt bother.This week I decided to make my own,so off to B& Q for a small bit of MDF,I found an off cut and it cost me £1.
Here is my ironing board.lots off left over batting and a bit of fabris left over from the quilt I made Nicky,and a very old cutting mat...


The old cutting mat on the back,so if I need to trim just whip it over.

It works great,very happy and it only cost me £1.and a few scraps.


Another one on the light box,from Anni Ds book.
Block 6 mystery BOM from FQS,and block 8 from cotton patch.

We have been promised lots of storms next week,so I will be very happy in my little craft room(with the door firmly shut to keep Lilly out).
But please spare a thought for the many people in the UK that have their homes flooded for the 3rd in some cases 4th time this year.

Had lunch with my girlfriends today ,a nice little Italian place,plenty of pasta and a good catch up with everyone.

until next time,have a great weekend.
