A lovely mail day

Hace unos días recibí una gran sorpresa de Paloma . Había ganado el patrón Wonky little houses de su sorteo, yipeeeeee!!!
Pero no sólo eso,  si no que además me envió unas telas preciosas de la colección Paris Apartment de Bari J. Podeis leer el post de Paloma sobre la colección  aquí.

Con las telas que me ha enviado aún no sé que proyecto voy a  hacer tengo varias ideas. 
Pero lo principal para mi ahora mismo es colaborar con Paloma y hacer un tutorial para colgar en los blogs.

Nuevamente muchas gracias Paloma, me ha encantado :).

Some days ago I received  a big surprise by Paloma. I won  the pattern Wonky Little Houses she was givingaway, yipeeee!!!

But not just this, she included a beautiful fabric bundle form Paris Apartment collection by Bari J.
Read the post about this collection here.

I'm not sure on what to make with these fabrics, I have some ideas but not decided yet.
But actually the main idea for me is to colaborate with Paloma to make a tutorial and post it on the blogs.

Again, Thank you so much Paloma. I really love it :)

Mucha suerte!!!

Head on Lynee's blog. She's hosting an amazing giveaway!! She's givingaway a bundle of 100 F8th by Oakshott. All solids, perfect to match with your print fabrics. I'm always short of solids.
Oakshott cottons are wellknown by UK quilters. Here in Spain I never  heared about them.
I've been following Lynee long time ago and I know she's an avid quilter so I trust her 100%. If she say, they're great cottons they have to be really good.

You have two weeks to enter the giveaway. Winner will be selected by Lynee February 24th.

Good luck!

The usual suspects

The usual suspects by lenarod8

My hubby asked me to made a new wallet for him.
He was wearing and old leather card holder, very functional but too boring and serious.
I'm a real fan of Harris tweed. Yeah, I know harris tweed can be a little bit expensive but If you had the oportunity to touch this handwoven cloth you know what I mean. And with leather is the perfect combo!

Here you have some info more about Harris Tweed history.

I take the pattern from his old wallet and added a department for notes (is this correct?).
I think is the perfect size for men. It has four card slots and one notes slot. I'm seriously thinking to add a coin pocket on the back, but maybe it will be too much.
I will be glad to hear your comments

You'll find a few wallets at my etsy store, just in case you want to get one for Valentine's day :)
