It is always nice on Friday to have happy mail to open after the work week is over and today was a good day! The first package I open was the lovely giveaway from Sheri at Sunshine in the Attic. I had won a bundle of Dear Stella fabric (first Dear Stella in my stash!) in the giveaway, lucky me. The lovely package arrived today, thank you so much Sheri for a great blog hop and a generous giveaway.
The second package was the first issue of Love Quilting magazine, a new magazine full of gorgeous quilts. I flicked through it but I will need a lot more time to read it properly!
The third was my order from Alice at Backstitch. I order some Klona solids and also a skirt pattern from Anna Maria Horner to use the corduroy I bought last week. Now to dare cutting it...
And I couldn't wait to give it a try.... so after watching numerous videos on youtube, I have made a start on my amigurumi elephant. I am not sure I am doing the right thing but it seems to look like something! Nowhere near an elephant yet but at least I have understood how to make a double crochet stitch in a ring!
Linking to Whoop Whoop Friday for trying to acquire new skills!
