.... you may remember me saying that is was to be the Sandbach quilt group meeting last night ... and that the FIRST challenge would be announced to the ladies xx WELL 24 turned up for the meeting ... AND ... 24 took the challenge xx I am SO happy x (must have sold it right!!! lol x)
NOW some folks had asked about it .. and maybe joining in x
SO ... here goes..
This is a challenge in 2 parts .FIRST..each of the ladies was given this ..
it is thick interfacing .. I think maybe used for pelmets or bag stiffening .. aprox 9.5 x 4 ins in size. It can be sew through, stuck to ,ironed on and is generally sturdy but pliable .The ladies have a month before the next meeting to make ... A BOOK MARK. They can keep the original size .. they can cut it up .. they can use any method they want .. to make a book mark.
A friend and I have been making them as fund raisers and so I had LOTS of examples to show them ..
SECOND part of the challenge is that it is ... A friendship challenge/swap.. so they each got to draw a name out of a hat .. and they make for that person. THEY decided to keep the names a secrete so that next month they will each have a lovely surprise xx
NOW if you want to join in and make your selves a book mark... go for it x If you want to swap and make me a book mark .. let me know in the comments box .. and I will swap addresses and send you one back xx Giving me a clue as to colour and theme would be helpful xx ... off to make one for my partner based on the colour of the jumper she was wearing last night xx
Have a fun day
