See that pic? That says a LOT about Pip Lincolne & what she means to me.
We’ve been mates for a while now…we picked each other up on the internet!
Pip’s been a terrific mate to me. She’s nostalgic, she’s encouraging, she’s enthusiastic, she’s generous with her praise, she’s got a have a crack attitude & she doesn’t have unrealistic expectations. These are all very good reasons to love the girl & all extremely good reasons to love her book “Make Hey while the Sun Shines“.
The book is beautifully styled, relaxed and friendly. The projects are simple & easily achieved if you’re a beginner or tweaked & reworked into something more if you’re not. And do you know what? Pip encourages this…she wants you to use the projects as a springboard. She wants you to lose yourself in the making & become a life long maker.
The best project in the book is, in my opinion, the friendly blankets for cosy couples. The project itself is a simple patchwork lap quilt. BUT it’s designed for best friends/cousins/couples so that it’s joined when you’re together & separated when you part. I LOVE this idea (as I said last week…I’m a sap). My smallest is extremely close to her cousin Sylvia & I’m going to make this for them.
Do you like my fabric selection? Yes, it’s that sheet we all had in the 70′s & I have it in blue & yellow too so I’m just deciding whether to make them in the same same but different sheets or to keep it Pretty in Pink. I KNOW Pip will approve of my fabric choice.
