Flatfold, fob & winning the challenge..!!

Whew!!! Finally can upload the pictures as i've been trying for an hour now but got an error. I've give up and shut down my computer hoping it will work after logging back and it did!

But first, i've read from the Monthly Finishing Challenge that i've won a gift certificate for the Pinkeep Challenge. I can't beleive it at first as i was in a rush viewing updates and have to read it a couple of times before i realise it's my name that was picked out for the draw.
Becky, thank you so much. I've join the group to get more motivated in finishing items and off course would love to see what everyone's working out and winning the draw is a real treat!




I've started working this unto a flatfold last weekend but wasn't able to finish it off until today. It did takes more time and patience than i had expected but i am happy with the outcome. This is one of my


favorites for finishing projects. I just wish the fabrics here aren't too expensive or maybe it's the same everywhere. There's one small quilt shop here on the island and that's where i buy the fabrics, with the one i use for the backing for this has cost $6.00(measured 50cm x 55cm). I don't know how much does cost with the same piece in the U.S.


Received a package from Dawn.
I know you did mentioned something is coming my way but don't know what, so it is still a surprise and what a very nice surprise indeed. It's just soooo cute and really like the fabric you have used and what a nice smell too. I LOVE it!! Thank you so much for making this for me.


Before turning off, thought to add a couple of pictures from the match last weekend. Chris group had won the game with the score of 7, and the other group had 3. It was not an easy match especially as the field was very wet. Actually, most of the football match that saturday morning was cancelled because the field was too wet.



Thanks so much for stopping by and all the nice comments.

Here in Gouda the fabrics are horribly expensive, too. They are MUCH cheaper in the US. :(

Lovely finish on your flatfold! Congrats on winning that is wonderful!! What a lovely fob from Dawn. Do you know what color families you might be looking for fabric is usually (good stuff)7.99 to 6.99 per yard or 2.50 per fat quarter which is usually less than a stitcher's fat quarter. Let me know I will see what I can come up with. Hugs
