I'm off to London a week on Thursday for the second Fat Quaterly Retreat and looking forward to it even more than the last one! I think this is because I am more relaxed this time and less nervous about meeting everyone and what to expect.
I am taking part in another Sample Swap, this is where everyone in a group of 4 makes 3 items all the same and then we swap them around at the retreat so you come back with 3 different items. Last year we did groups of 5 so we had to make 4 of something.
I decided to make these Liberty Skittle Dolls. Yes they do look like matryoshka but I've decided to re-name them!
I can see now, looking at the card and my dolls, that I have totally failed to recreate the shape, but I hope that some of the original spirit remains!
Very Berry Fabrics shop on Folksy.
The name tag badge that I made last week has reached it's recipient, so I can now reveal that it was for Amy, Crafty Shenanigans!
So that's me all ready to go (apart from sorting out my supplies which I have been a little too relaxed about so far!).
I am so excited to get back amongst all the lovely quilty peeps, meeting old and new friends alike!
