A Finish: Bear in the Log Cabin (for Bloggers Quilt Festival)

It’s Blogger’s Quilt Festival time again, and I love how Amy has simplified it. Previously you had to choose a category for a quilt that you entered, and then people would nominate and vote for a People’s Choice, which didn’t always seem like the fairest way of doing it- though I was surprised to be nominated […]

A Quick Tutorial: How to put your Instagram pics on a blog post

I’m back today with a quick tutorial to show you how I get my Instagram posts onto my blog. It’s WordPress hosted, and won’t allow me to use the embed code, I just get a grey box, besides, you may not want it to look like you just pulled it off Instagram, with the frame […]

Vlog #13 – September 17th 2017 – Finishing Stuff

I got a couple of smaller projects finished which I’m very pleased about! A Venti tote bag and another Blanche from my classes, plus I talk about events next weekend and the one after that. I’m now making my Banana Candy quilt finally too, using the Scan N Cut shapes I cut out. More on […]

Kerry vs Chalk Paint

I’ve got to say it, I was nearly defeated! To elaborate on the chairs posted in my vlog a little bit more, I posted this picture on Instagram last weekend, (the seat reupholstered, but not yet back on the legs) and asked people what I should do about the state of the wood. These chairs […]

Vlog #12 – September 10th 2017 – Chairs and my new sewing room

This week I show you around my new sewing room and my upholstery project! Don’t forget, when you subscribe to my YouTube channel, you are entered in a draw to win your choice of precut! We are a quarter of the way there, yey! Tell your sewing friends! I can’t remember if I showed the […]

Tutorial: Make your own design wall

Hi, I moved house and I’m back! I have so much more wall space in my new sewing room in the basement (to be known as the sewing bunker), so I finally for the first time in my sewing life got a design wall that I can fit a whole quilt onto! And the good […]

PennyDog Vlog #10 – August 14th 2017 – Where’d I go this weekend?

Here is my vlog, again, I’m late, getting good at that, but I have a really good excuse, I promise.   On Saturday we bought a house! My day was taken up with viewings and realtor stuff, I managed a bit of cutting out for my first project from Windy City Bags by Sara Lawson […]

Something a bit silly… this is Tabbytha

I made this – for a reason – and it was deemed, well I guess a bit crazy without using that word! I think it’s kind of cool still though! This is Tabbytha… I am aware that she needs a bigger cushion sham inside, I will have to go out and buy one since I […]

PennyDog Vlog #9 – August 7th 2017

I was making videos for my class this weekend, so this is one of FOUR I made. It was a bank holiday yesterday too so it meant I delayed this one a day while I sorted the class ones out. I finished making two bags and they’re pretty! Come and see! The foxy Blanche Barrel […]
