But the trouble is that it is only a bargain of you actually use it! It had been sitting in my stash for probably two years. And yet it is so pretty.
So I decided that some of it should become Easter cards. I found some suitable blank cards again from my shameful stash and hey ho! Voila! I don't think you can see on the photograph but I have quilted round the flower with a metallic thread.
And I have decided to try English paper piecing some of the rest of the fabric to make some cushion covers. I'll explain what English paper piecing is when I get started but for the moment let it suffice to say that it is the sort of patchwork I remember my mother doing when I was a little girl. It is portable so I will be able to take it with me on days out.
But for the moment my joy is that two ladies in America have already received these cards and the rest (for UK recipients) are in the post tonight.
