But I did take the time to check out the website and ...well Tina was spot on when she said I might like what they do.
Ark is a not for profit movement encouraging Acts of Random Kindness through their clothing range. The idea is that you perform on Act of random Kindness every time you wear their brand. Simple ! Straightforward ! and fun ! I love it !
So this giveaway is open to everyone BUT (you knew there was a but coming didn't you).
have shared, the schools initiative, the launch of donations for Haiti- good stuff people !!!
Isn't it a great idea. The bunting and the instructions are all printed on one panel. You can either use the panel to make double sided bunting with Nic's patterns on both sides, or add your own fabric for the back.....thereby getting more flags.
This has to be one of those "why didn't I think of it?" kind of ideas.....Brilliant.
Apart from a great idea, Nic designs her own fabric and tea-towels, is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and was a joy to hang out with when we met at Stitches and Craft all those months ago.
(and no, this is not advertising. I really truly bought these off my own bat and just love them)
However, if you would like to see some real life advertising , come back tomorrow .......

Sew completely around the circle directly on the line. Trim your lining fabric
Put your third piece of fabric behind the window you have created (This would be good for fussy placement of little pictures)
So guys this is by no means a definitive way to do this, its just the way that works for me and gives the effect I want.

and then I like the wonky 3 layered idea
Not so bad with coloured fabric but IF this was to become a quilt, all this red would make my eyes bleed...
A white on white print is better..........but do you remember when I made a white quilt before?

You see, sometime ages ago, the Very wonderful Megan asked me if I would like to be included in the 2011 sewing calendar (silly question).Of course I was happy to oblige.
Last week I received two copies in the mail, one for me and one for you, actually mine will probably go to my mum......... (Does that weird Mum-collecting-every word-ever-said-about-you-thing-ever-stop ?)

You may be forgiven for thinking I am over at The Drapers of Mt. Macedon, swanning about a-la-trunk-show
