Scraping, The Colour Drain, & A Winner!
Has this been a week, or what!? Are you feelin’ me? Like, how about yesterday when the whole quilt blogging community rose up to squash a scraping website? First, thank you to the Bitchy Stitcher for alerting everyone! Sparkly thanks to all of you for your comments on yesterday’s post, your actions against the offending website, and for making our community a kick-ass force to be reckoned with. (Those million moms got nothin’ on us!) We have been triumphant, as that completely lacklustre website has since been pulled down. Now that’s how you werk!
Next, I was so honoured to guest post for Le Challenge, and the unbelievably kind words so many of you had to say about my little story. (Which, as some have asked, was completely true!) I had pulled an inspiration bundle, and then sometime at around 3am–does that happen to you, too?–realised I still had 145 HST units left over from my A Lot of Look quilt. Um, hello, they fit the bill perfectly. No need to holla for a dolla!
This 24″ square is just one small portion of this new quilt idea (thanks for the “lock it in” support on IG), so it will not be done in time for Le Challenge. However, I’ll endeavour to have the design drawn up to share for the Le Challenge linkup. Working title: The Colour Drain.
Oh, and we’ve got an Intrepid Thread $30 Gift Card giveaway winner to announce, don’t we? Thank you for all the “Likes” on my Facebook page! Now I can spread sparkles of glitter to you everywhere! There can only be one winner though… eeeek, and that is: GranChris from AbbeyLaneQuilts! Sparklelations! I’ll be in touch!
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday!
Quilters are awesome. But don’t mess with us.
