I have lots of works in progress to show you today and a couple of finished objects which I am really pleased with. I also have quite a few lovely things to share and chat a little bit about a lovely trip to Fibre East. I forgot to mention our current Fondant Fibre giveaway, I will be announcing the winner in the next episode.
Are any of you going to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham this weekend. I will be there on Sunday.
I am on Periscope now as @mylittlebobbins - thank you to Julianna from Julianna's Fiber for introducing me to it. You can find Julianna @juliannapuccini
