Charming......

A layer cake of Little Apples cut into 4 'charm packs'...

one pack made this little Disappearing 9 patch - it will do nicely for a 'doll' quilt for a little girl at some stage...


that was after I had made this pretty girls quilt



and whilst I am on the subject of Charms


Sharon over at Lilabelle Lane is taking names for a swap of charms
Have a read over HERE - I think it will be fun...  you can link to the join up HERE
first 56 members and we end up with loads of happy charms

Because of postage costs it is going to be for Au/NZ residents only - for the far away friends maybe someone can do another over by your place?

back to my Little Apples...... of course I still have 2 packs.... I think I will make girly bags with one....


and giveaway the other.....


let me know if you want in..... just remember it is not a 'professional' charm pack... but it is one of each of the colours... but I can't guarantee all of the lines are perfectly straight..... you know I drink too much coffee and sometimes the lines move....

Just leave a comment on this post and I'll chat to Mr Random in a couple of weeks.

hope you don't mind waiting whilst I take a break

.... you see I am going away to meet the owner of this new little baby boy quilt ....

Jack's quilt

.... see ya ......
