Birthday Giveaway - Win a plushie !!!

Hello all,

I think it's time for a Giveaway, it's been ages since I had one and it's my Birthday week so why not share with all you lovely people. I am turning 36 this week, yes will be on the wrong side of 35 and not happy about it. But we have a few nice things planned to get me over that horrible day of getting older.

I have decided to give away 3 of my plushies which means there will be not only 1 but 3 WINNERS, yay. I wanted to give all of you a choice though and decided to use 9 plushies (am turning 36 so 3 + 6 = 9, clever ha?).

So you get 3 chances to win.

1. Leave me a comment on this blog post telling me which of the plushies you'd like to win.
    (just count from top left 1, 2, 3 and then the next row 4, 5, 6 and the last 7, 8, 9)

2. Become a blog follower (you can see I need some love on here) and tell me in another comment that you are a follower.

3. Become a Facebook fan and tell me in another comment you have liked my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/This-Creative-Bliss/204707436234824

I will draw all 3 winners on Sunday, 9 September.

Good luck everyone.
Lots of love,

Festival of Quilts goodies

Hello all,

I know the FoQ is still on so I won't tell you everythign about it or show you pictures of the amazing quilts on display. But what i can do is show you the gorgeous fabrics I bought. I know, I didn't want to buy much at all, I was hoping to get some Tula Pink "Birds and th bees" fabrics but there weren't any. But I just couldn't resist these lovelies.

2 layer cakes, Tula Pink's "Prince Charming" and Valori Well's "Cocoon"

and check out these gorgeous fabrics depicting movie and rock stars (home dec)

What do you think? I love these and will now have to find a new home for them.

For those of you still going to the FoQ have a great time and try to keep your money tight, it's so easy to start spending and realise you're broke at the end of the day. :)

Lots of love,

Finally. The Plushies are certified!

Hurrah, I have finally finished the certification and have all my files and test results in order. This now means my plushies carry the CE mark to show they comply with toy safety regulations. I have relisted some Odd Owls, Peculiar Penguins and Merry Matryoshkas in the shop and it looks so much better.

Here are a few new penguins and matryoshkas. I hope you like them.

And go chekc out the shop and let me know if you like the way I ordered it: http://www.etsy.com/shop/QuiltedBlissByNadine

Let me know what you think.
Lots of love,

New solids quilt

I have been determined to make more solids quilts rather than just using solids mixed in with patterned fabrics. I have made 3 solids quilts so far and rally love this one. Originally sort of inspired by the Amy Butler solids quilt you can find here, but I tried to make a bit different and really like the result. It almost looks quite retro, sort of 60s 70s style. I wish I could afford the Kona Bounty of Basics box with lots of solids FQ but it's just a bit out of my price range, especially since I will need to buy a new machine soon. Oh well, my current stash will just have to do.

As usual I used orange fleece on the back and quilted in large wavy lines.

I love this one, what do you think?
