WIP Wednesday: Nothing to see here...

First of all, thanks to all of you who entered my giveaway, and welcome to my new followers :o)


Second of all, after much mucking around with html code, and trying various gadgets to get my comments to be numbered (there may also have been a lot of swearing involved...) I have discovered I am an epic technology failure. I cannot get my comments to be numbered. I suck. I also managed to make the giveaway post disappear when closing the comments. So I doubly suck. Sigh. 


Anyhow the winner of the fabric is comment number 4:

I follow your blog via google reader.
Congratulations Heather, I'll email you soon :o)

On the quilty front, I have finished my Sushi quilt and will be taking photos tomorrow - and I'll put up the finished photos once I get the okay from Sonja. So no pics sorry!

Apart from that it's been a weird week sewing wise. I've been a bit unwell (tonsillitis which has mutated into a snotty cold) and have had a few set backs with my intended next projects. I was all set today to start a few curves with my new Curve Master foot, in readiness to start my Retro Flowers quilt. I got it out of its packet and then read the fine print on the back - apparently for Berninas (which I have) you need a special foot to attach the curve master to (which I don't have). I have ordered the foot and I'm hoping it gets here quickly - I'm busting to give it a try - the youtube videos make it look SO easy to sew curves. Sigh again. 

On a more positive note (that first part of this post was a bit negative really!), I got an iPad last weekend (which has been heaps of fun to play with) and am planning a case using these fabrics (apologies for the horrible night time photo - they look much nicer in real life!):


It's still very much in planning stages - I want it to be quite different from the many tutorials out there. If my grand plans actually work (without too much swearing!) I'll do some sort of tutorial for it...


I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly pieced - so check out the other peeps who are sure to have more exciting things to show :o)

Oooh, I'm excited that I won! Thanks so much. I forget what the prize was though!

Sorry about your blog. Technology is so frustrating! I am not savvy in that way either so I feel your pain. I've bumbled my way through blog stuff before, and my word of advice is to back up your blog before doing anything, then you can totally mess it up and still get back to where you were.

Congrats on the ipad! The fabrics are SO FUN and will make an awesome cover.

I have an iPad and I'm not sure how I lived without it! Love the fabric and looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Get better! Deb. :o)

Heidi Staples said...

You have some good stuff coming along here! I love the fabrics you picked out!

I don't know if it will make you feel better NOW... but Blogger disabled numbered comments when they added the "reply" feature. It's not you being dumb. It's Blogger's fault.

Rosa said...

Can´t wait to see your sushi quilt and the ipad case!

Katy Cameron said...

That damn tonsillitis is going round the world! I hope yours feels better soon, mine kinda peaked Friday/Saturday, but still got a cough and snotty nose too

Jessica said...

Blogger disabled the comment numbering a few months ago when the new 'Reply' feature was introduced.

It's a pain. Especially as it was so easy for giveaways.

I'm looking forward to seeing your sushi quilt. Happy Sewing!!
