Today is the day – the auction closes at 9pm Paris time tonight.
In breaking news, Carli has come in with a late bid and now has the lead! With six hours to go, anything could happen. Phew, I’m a bit excited by it all.
I’ll tell you what else has me excited – finally getting myself a design wall.
I’d been reading around the traps that flannel sheets are the way to go – their fuzziness holds your quilting blocks in place and then you can move them around to your heart’s content.
I hung my sheet with picture hooks along the top (sorry landlord). Then I used some nails to pull the sides tight (toight like a toiger, as Goldmember would say).
I was very tempted to just get the sheet up as quickly as possible, but instead I sewed in button holes for all the hanging points to strengthen them.
Hopefully it will last a bit longer now.
First trial – a quilt for the little girl of the house, who is a huge fan of pink and yellow if you hadn’t guessed.
It’s supposed to be morphing from pink to yellow across the diagonal.
I’m a few blocks short though, so more sewing required.
The next post will announce the auction winner.
Thanks so much to all those who’ve been digging deep across the internet for the disaster victims.
