Watching Netfix and a Lily Pad Quilting Giveaway.

A lot of us who stitch like to watch a bit of TV while working on our latest creations.  I'm a big fan of pay TV as there is nothing I enjoy more than binge watching.  And if there are some gorgeous clothes and textiles in the show even better.  So when I read The Vintage Sewing Nerds Guide to Netflix at The Vintage Sewing Nerd I thought you might enjoy it too.

I'd not watched The Bletchley Circle but after reading the article I did and thoroughly enjoyed it.
and I often watch Hercule Poirot as much for the clothes (and the locations and sets) as for the plots
My lovely friend Jan put me onto Michele Carragher and if you are a fan of Game of Thrones or exquisite embroidery or costume design you must visit.  I was totally blown away.
There is a wonderful giveaway happening over at one of my favourite blogs, delightful Lily Pad Quilting.  Just look what sponsor The Fat Quarter Shop has given Snoodles as the giveaway prize.  The most fabulous Aqua Solutions Cabinet from ArtBin.  There are also two bundles of Christmas fabrics as prizes too.
So please pop on over and enter.
I thought this was the perfect project to share with you when much of the post was about exquisite sewing.  Please follow this LINK on how to make embellished hexies .
It is at lovely I Quilt Sew What.  I am new to this blog but I will certainly be back as it is wonderful. Sorry I couldn't find the bloggers name, but I would like to thank her very much for what she shares with us.

Back to a bit of TV watching for me
Have a wonderful day


  1. I love my Foxtel or any show / sport on in the background while I am stitching. Thanks for the links Mel. x

  2. Thanks Mel will have to put The Bletchley Circle on my list of things to watch.

  3. Lovely stuff. I agree with you when it comes to watching period stuff, I forget the plots and concentrate on the wonderful costumes.

  4. I LOVE Bletchley Circle! Hope there is a third season as the first two were brilliant.
    My Blossom is embellishing hexies (1/2 inch and 3/4 inch can you believe?) with her tiny embroideries at the moment. So sweet.

  5. Thanks for the shoutout for our giveaway! Hugs to you!

  6. I'm a binge-watcher of Netflix too, lol - and I love watching Poirot! I was so sad when they took Miss Marple away.
