Here's yesterday's progress on Clifford. Isn't he lovely? I've just got 17 leaves to cut out (one is done) but I had to stop because my fingers were getting sore from holding scissors and cutting so carefully!
Thanks Sue for the quilting advice (hope the flooding has gone down and you're all OK in your bit of the country). I'm going to hand quilt because I'm really not that great with a sewing machine and for fiddly stuff like this I think it'll be much wiser. As for weight of wadding - I have no idea! I don't have any local craft shops so I guess I'll ring one up and ask. Or I'll wait until October - I'm planning on going to the Knitting and Stitching Show with (hopefully) a friend, so I'll find a friendly patchwork stand and bug them!
For anyone wondering where I got the fabric - I found a fantastic ebay shop. She put the fabric kit together specially for me and was so helpful.
We're out for a pub lunch later and a day out in Ely tomorrow, but I may be back this evening with another update. It's nice to have time to stitch and blog about it too!
