Check!

Two things checked off the really long to do list. Firstly, today I submitted my first draft of my book! By submitted, I mean that I am currently 16% of the way into the uploading process. It’s almost 3gb of stuff so it’s taking a while. Secondly, I finally got super patient Simone’s bee block […]

Back on it

I’m thinking of doing some craft fairs just before Christmas. Just one or two, selling purses and bags and maybe some of the other stuff like resin jewellery I’ve been meaning to get rid of for ages. I might take some quilts too, not that I expect them to sell. I’ve sent off for a […]

A Finish – S is for Snake

I don’t think I could really show this before, but now it is in print, this is my S is for Snake quilt! It’s just baby quilt size and it’s in the current issue (27) of Quilt Now. It’s another quilt I put together using the Scan N Cut to cut out my Drunkard’s Path […]

Finished! My Lizzy House Meadow Quilt

So it only took three weeks after finishing this quilt to actually photograph it and post about it…. This is my Q3 Finish Along finish, the pattern is Lizzy House’s exclusive Meadow quilt pattern that she only teaches in class (because the pattern is open to some interpretation and personal influence which in turn can […]

Modern Quilt Guild stuff

I’m still buried in book stuff. I feel like I’m making good progress but I have two more quilts to make (well, three minis and a full one) and more writing to do and five weeks to finish it in. Quiltcon is the next thing. I’m doing the Michael Miller challenge for next year’s show […]

Puppy bandanas

Because it’s Stampede season (Yahoo not Yeehaa/Yeehaw apparently), I decided to turn a couple of fat quarters into doggy bandanas for Hank when I got home from work on Saturday. I folded them diagonally right sides together and trimmed off the excess, stitched around the edge leaving a turning gap, turned through and top stitched […]

Finish Along Quarter 3

The end of this quarter ties in exactly with when I need to finish my book projects by, but I thought I would try and make a bit of an effort with the Finish Along still, despite knowing I will be busy busy! This is the project I’ve chosen to aim to finish, my Meadow […]

This month’s update

Well it appears I am currently a monthly blogger. I have just finished up another project for my book and have written about 15% so I’m still quietly working away on that over the summer. Here’s some of the back of the latest project, I’m very pleased with how my free motion quilting is developing… […]

Fancy & Fabulous Skirt

I’ve got a second finish amidst the chaos that is writing book and magazine stuff. Each time I make this skirt pattern I get a bit better at it; this time I am happier with the finish on the zip at the back. As with all the skirts I make, it has pockets- an essential […]

Festival of Quilts, Calgary

I didn’t have a whole lot of time at the Festival of Quilts to see absolutely everything, but I got a fair number of breaks to wander around considering I was at work! Heritage Park is a historical village reconstruction of what the West used to look like, It has a steam train (and paddleboat); […]
