Well, I have finished the piglet / pigs / bed runner, I am very pleased. I will be posting photos as soon as I can. I used iron on fusible interfacing/lining, successfully, as the fabric was thinner than I thought (that's the trouble with ebay, you can't really see how thick the fabric is) It was easier than I imagined and the effect was great.
What next? Well, watch this space lol =)
