Now that I've got my tutorial done (good thing for everyone concerned - I was not an attentive or patient mother:-) I've been finishing off the top of stack of coins. In the end I decided, having consulted my wise readers, not to sash in linen between the stacks but made a couple of extras, joined them all and added a border in the linen instead.
It's proving impossible to get a decent sunny picture of the whole top, but here's a close-up:
To give you an idea what it's like here I have watered this hanging basked twice in two months.
Thank you very much to everyone from the hop who dropped in and left a comment. I try to reply to all comments, but sometimes the commenter is a "no-reply" blogger. If you don't hear back, this may be why. Find out about what it means and what to do about it here (or google "no-reply blogger").
Sometimes, too, I can't pay a return visit to a blog because the address isn't visible when I click on a commenter's profile picture. Amanda at Fabric Engineer has just posted a little tutorial on how to make sure your blog shows up - here.
And......another handy link. Some bloggers like to use word verification to avoid spammers, but I thought I'd turned it off on my own blog. I found I hadn't when Chrissie D posted this tutorial!
Final link - for anyone who's read to the bottom of this post - Lynne at Lily's Quilts has an amazing giveaway. She's offering an Oakshott Cottons colourbox. A mere 1236 entrants so far:-) I'm off to get my entry in with fingers and toes crossed. Please let it be me.
