Still chopping up fabric....

My sister Helena and I are in heaven with all the lovely fabrics.  She's visiting from NY to help take care of Mum who is now living with me.  

So while she has been here, pretty well since Boxing Day, we've been surrounded by my boxes and bins of fabric.  And I have to say we've done the odd shopping trip for even more fabric, just so we have a wider choice!!  
This is Mah Jong, Helena's latest one.  These one-of-kind special packages of fabric all have a name. You may see four ladies in their kimonos, or you may not!  

"Hummingbird" 

This and "Hummingbird" both recently sold in my Etsy shop.

She's working on "The Shah" here.  It's always fascinating to see what she creates with a few pieces of fabric.
Special Note

This is my 500th post!  

I'm going to have a draw to celebrate.  The prize will be one of our special one-of-a-kind packages.  The winner will choose from a list of "names"  still being compiled.

Just leave a comment and your name will go into the random draw.  Deadline to enter is Sunday 7th April, 5pm Eastern Standard time.

Always such a pleasure to see what new eye candy you have produced. Enjoy your sisters visit. Hope your Mum is doing well. I took care of my parents for 7 & 8 years and am so happy I spend those final years with them.
