I hope you read that right & don't think I'm 300 !!
Firstly I'm celebrating my 300th blog post. When I started I never thought I would be any good at maintaining a blog but 2 years later I'm still sharing my creations, photos & life stuff with the world.
Secondly, I've had the most amazing weekend celebrating my birthday at the V Festival.
Attending a festival has been on my bucket list for a long time and can now be ticked off :) Our expiences over the past couple of years have taught me that if there is something you want to do or somewhere you want to go then you should go for it if you can.
Please leave a comment about whats on your Bucket List & I'll send a little gift to the lucky winner picked by the random generator on wednesday.
The red Angry Birds I made a couple of months ago have proved hugely popular with my children & their friends. So over the last couple of days I got cutting & sewing again ( using the patterns from obsessive stitching blog) & made the Yellow one from this addictive game.
He does look angry, doesn't he?! But the kids love him :) I can see me making a full set at this rate :)
Would you like to win a set of these cool September Kit Bespoke Design Cards - why of course you would! You simply need to leave a little comment here on the GoGo Blog or over on our FB page and we will select a random comment and that person will be sent a set FOC:D
On friday I got the chance to visit The Festival of Quilts at Birminghams NEC. Billed as the largest display of quilts in Europe & they weren't kidding. There were quilts from around the globe & covering over 200 years. Even a non quilter like myself could not help but be inspired by the designs & colours on show all filled with love, hardwork & heritage.
Some of my favourites.
this one is knitted.
Thousands of tiny hexagons!
The foundling quilt.
I had not realised that there was so many styles of quilting until we wandered for hours taking in their glory. These mini quilts caught my eye, they are all 12x12! I size I'm so used to in scrapbooking.
I would really recommend this show to everyone who appreciates handmade as a place for inspiration plus some fabric & crafts shopping too.
