Fat Quarterly Retreat name badges
Wow, so much happening, so little blogging. For shame! But I couldn’t go without posting my Fat Quarterly Retreat name badge, which I am so very excited about!
My badge was made by Laura at Needles, Pins and Baking Tins. She saw that I like to knit and she crochets so she incorporated that into the design. I didn’t get a picture of the back but it has a pin so I can wear it either way. It also came wrapped in this lovely fabric!
The package came when Maddie was over and she thought it was so cool. Seriously she couldn’t stop looking at it or asking me questions about it. Finally I let her wear it for a little while. I have to agree it’s lovely – I am so pleased.
I, on the other hand, am a very bad swapper, and I’m 99% sure the recipient of my name badge thinks I’ve forgotten her. I didn’t realise these were supposed to be done at the beginning of May! But I AM working on it. Here is a peek, before the name goes on. If you haven’t received your badge yet, this might be yours so don’t be sad…
This is my first ever attempt at embroidery and I enjoyed it so much! This design is from the Embroidery Companion by Alicia Paulson which is such a great book!
Here’s the back – pretty tidy, eh? Get me!
I’m pleased, but Maddie says it’s not as nice as the one I received. Hopefully she’ll change her tune when it’s finished – and it WILL be finished!
