We hope you won't be stumped by this month's theme:


Definitely not the most obvious theme but we are hoping you will really push your creativity with this one! There are many ways to incorporate the theme WOOD (my childish self is giggling) and to actually use wood as a material obviously.

For the full low down on le challenge please read these guidelines. Anyone can join in, using any medium and create a finished project based on 'wood'. The link will open 14th May and one person will be chosen by random to win a £25 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop!

not long now... {fabric inspiration}


Just popping in to remind you that the link for the 'tradition' challenge will open on Tuesday next week!
If you're new to le challenge this month we want you to link up anything based on the theme tradition - it can be interpreted however you like so long as you link to any finished crafty project made in the past month, see all the rules HERE.


You might want to use a traditional pattern mixed with reproduction fabrics as this Mint Jelly and Jam Quilt Kit does

or kick it old school like Hidden Vintage Farmhouse


maybe you like a little period drama with Downton Abbey?


or perhaps you are a Family Guy and have a way to create something based on family traditions?


Or even a holiday tradition? (don't hate me, I know it's only April but some people like to be prepared!! and The Very Hungry Caterpillar is so cute!)



Is saying 'Cheers' a tradition?



I know some of you are already finished and hope you're all excited about seeing all the makes inspired by TRADITION

Passion {fabric inspiration}



The time to share our finished projects is nearly upon us... so here's some quick inspiration of how you could interpret this theme.

*Thanks to those who pointed out my earlier error to me... let's try that again shall we?!


Passionate about glitter?

Spot On Metallic Jet Polka Dots Yardage SKU# 12872-190

A passionate memory? Perhaps a special holiday or trip?

Passport Black and White New York City Map Yardage <br/>SKU# 33010-20

Something you own that you have passion about?

Timeless Treasures Sneakers on Grey Yardage SKU# C9509-GREY

A person / animal in your life that you love?

Back Porch Prints Red Snow Babies Yardage <br/>SKU# 98531-331


Are these are glaringly obvious?! Have you thought of something more obscure? 

Whether it is a clear link or not, show us your finished make based on the theme 'passion' when the link opens this weekend :)
