~Celebrating The Chookshed~


Over the weekend my Blogging Buddy Chooky celebrated 2 years in her 'Chookshed'
She invited Bloggers to join in on the celebrations by virtually sewing solo or with friends
I jumped at the chance and thought I would work on my Diamonds at Large quilt
Details of this quilt are over here


A Layer Cake was used for this
The border is also cut up Layer Cake


as is the binding 
A lovely quilt to put together!


I also managed to finish off this little Sewing Wallet

This celebration also offered bubbly (make mine pink) and nibbles
How could I refuse????

Happy Birthday dear Chookyblue and here's to many more celebrations of The Chookshed!!!

Chooky has a poll on her blog if anyone would to check it out
It's about whether she should hold this celebration again!!!

I love the way the big bold diamonds show off your wonderful fabrics. It's great to hear you had fun celebrating in style.

Lovely way to use a layer cake, you got lots done. That little wallet is so cute, beautiful colour wool. I thought the virtual party was a huge success.......and no hangovers or cleaning up after!
