I am foundation piecing a set of birds, and although I bought the kits to make them, this one is short of the green batik fabric. The kit was bought in 2009 and although the person that sold the kit has tried to help I still do not have enough fabric to finish it..
All I need is about an 8 inch square or some scraps. I am more than happy to pay for it and postage.
Please email me if you can help. firstname.lastname@example.org

The branches were bamboo poles covered in green knitted dish cloths, and the array of bells, baubles, candles and chains was amazing. After the show I understand everything was to be dismantled and sold.
While I was enjoying the show Chris went to York to the Train exhibition, so we were both full of news when we met up later for dinner. Sunday was spent driving through the Yorkshire Dales, visiting Theakston Brewery and an outlet village.. lovely weekend, may have to do it again next year.
Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...

Is this taking de-cluttering too far? Everything is a bit 'chicken and egg'. The plasterer needs to see the wall behind the tiles...
