DUCJC2015 day 11 and SFS

Welcome to day 11! and my first SFS post!
Today I started something that I've been reeeeally excited about. Both because I love the pattern and also because it was Debbie that lead me to it. You'll understand in a minute.

It is 'Cut Thru Fairy Hill' by Bothy Threads! Yes I know that Debbie wasn't actually doing this one but I first found these kits through her blog and so I feel that this is my special project just for her.
You are probably wondering what is with the fabric. Yes, that is not the supplied Aida from the kit. I had this in my stash and felt that it matched the design to make it even more fairy-ish. It is called 'Fairy Floss' and it is a hand dye Evenweave from Sew it All. My picture doesn't do it any justice so feel free to follow the link to get a better look.

Now onto SFS! Yes I know it's not the end of the month but I just wanted to do a bit of an intro.
So I have decided to stick to $25 AUD. It's a little less than $25 USD but I'm not going to worry about that. I will be posting my progress on the 1st of each month (or a couple of days after if need be). My main goal is to spend as little as possible over the whole 6 months of the first half of SFS and just work with what I have(which is pretty much everything I need). Well that's all until February 1st, not too exciting. Haha.

Well that's all again folks.
Thank you for reading, commenting and following!
Until tomorrow,


  1. great start !!!

  2. Great new start! I've just finished the Cut Thru that Debbie's blog inspired me to start. I had mixed emotions finishing it but it will be a lovely reminder of her friendship and enthusiasm, as will yours.

  3. That's a great piece for this challenge. And a wonderful tribute to Debbie.
