Tilda Treats!


Are you a Tilda fan? Have you fallen in love with the sweet shabby chic colours and patterns of Tone Finnanger's iconic fabric ranges? Do you love the simply delightful combination of soft colours with warm linen tones? Or are you like me and spend hours drooling over the GORGEOUS photos in her range of books but don't quite get around to making very many of the projects?! :0) Actually ... I think that I can tick the boxes beside all of the above questions! :0) I like nothing better than to while away an hour or two like this ...



A Tilda book ... or two or three!! ... and a  cup of tea ... and you won't here a peep from me except the occasional SIGH that my rooms never look that pretty and NEAT! :0) HOWEVER ... this week I managed to spend a little bit of quality (if not quantity!!) time in my sewing room and actually FINISHED one of the Tilda projects that I have been wanting to make for a while ... YAY!! :0)

This sweet bunny is one of the projects in the "Crafting Springtime Gifts" book and I have had it earmarked (get it ... bunnies ... ears ... oh never mind!!!) for quite some time. I had a little bit of a nudge from the lovely Marion to finally dive in to choose and make up one of my favourite Tilda projects for a special night coming up in the next little while.

Isn't she a cutie?! :0) Marion and Steph have a large range of Tilda fabrics, embellishments, scrapbooking papers, brads and giftwares in stock at The Quilters Angel and since they know that a LOT of people share a passion for all things Tilda, they've been running a Tilda club ...


If you sign up, not only do you get to play with the pretty Tilda fabrics, you get to add to your gift stash ... of course ... some of the projects are so darn CUTE that you might decide to 'gift' them to YOURSELF! Tee! Hee! Hee! This has proven to be a VERY popular program and since numbers are limited, you'd better sign up quick if you want to join the fun.

As another part of all things Tilda at Quilters Angel, Marion and Steph are going to be hosting a series of Tilda-themed "Sit N Stitch" sessions ... each session will be held to make a specific project from one of Tone Finnanger's books ... including my cute bunny! :0) A choice of a couple of different kits in different colourways will be available for participants when they sign up and everyone will gather in the QA workroom to make the project together ... with someone who has already made the project on hand to give help, tips and guidance ... just in case you're like me and sometimes have trouble interpreting someone else's written instructions! :0) So ... make sure you stay tuned to the Quilters Angel blog to hear when these fun sessions get under way ... and I promise to let you know when I'll be helping with the session to make the pretty bunny. The more who come and play the merrier ... and the more cute bunnies there will be to make us smile! :0)

OK ... I'm off to rustle up some lunch ... running on weekend time today and my tummy is starting to complain about it. :0) Hope your week has been productive and that you're enjoying switching to "Weekend Time" too ... including some 'relax and stitch' time ... or maybe just some 'kick back and relax' time! :0) Til next time ...

BEAR BUNNY HUGS!

CHEERS!

Hi Kris!
I love your Tilda bunny! Great job sweetie, and yes I'm a huge fan of Tilda and wish more than anything that I could have a shabby white home that would actually stay more white than shabby!!! Ne'er mind! Big hugs! Vikki xoxo
