PennyDog Vlog #1 – May 27th 2017

A new thing I’m trying out, sometimes it’s easier and more honest on a one take iPhone video, than an edited, curated blog post…. Maybe I’ll do it once a week if people don’t think this is too weird! Oh and maybe I’ll brush my hair next time…

A finish: A Horse With No Name

Hello…. it’s me…. (read Adele-style) I’ve had some big things going on that I’ll probably talk about when I have found a solution, but it’s put me off sewing a bit. I’ve been designing a few Spoonflower fabrics since I’ve been selling some designs (!) so I want to build up my library, and I’ve […]

Gently getting into WIPs

I have just a few WIPs, one of which is the Quilt Workout applique special, but I’m not sure if I’m quite ready for that size project yet. For the time being, I decided to work on the Blanche barrel bags (larger size) by Swoon Patterns that I cut out for Christmas fairs and didn’t […]

Patterns Patterns Patterns

I’ve been cleaning up my pattern shop with new photos over the weekend and reopened the one on Etsy too! Because I plan to start as I mean to go on, I should be releasing more patterns over the coming months, and each one will be discounted on Craftsy for the first week of release. […]

A Finish: Connecting 4

Sigh. I missed the Finish Along link up again because I’ve been busy at work (this is a good thing but it means I’ve been going to bed earlier), have been teaching and trying to get on top of housework and stuff at home. I also decided today after an incident on Friday where I […]

This weekend I will be mostly…

This quilt needs finishing in the next 5 days and getting in the post with the Thumbtacks quilt for magazine deadlines. Every weekday I do a little bit more, so maybe it will be a flimsy by the weekend and I can quilt it. I’m thinking of calling it “Connecting Four” – it’s four rows […]

A Finish : Thumbtacks

… Because the British term “Drawing Pins” doesn’t really work as a title I don’t think! Here it is… I made it using a semi-stack and whack technique, because I realised that triangles really need the extra seam allowance to piece back together again! This will be for Popular Patchwork in the summer. I’m working […]

New pattern available!

I’ve recently published the Pancakes pattern over on Craftsy. If you’re interested, it is $6USD. This marks the start of me trying to put myself out there more! 🙂

Hank also shares the space

Remember this post where I gave my husband a painting nook in my sewing room? Well now the dog has got involved. He had been digging in the other cupboard to find a cosy corner to lay in (when it’s not sunny and he’s sprawled in the rays on the floor) so instead of letting […]

It’s a Scraptastic Tuesday!

I made progress on an old WIP I’ve not touched in a year- YEAH! My scrappy log cabin quilt needed 64 blocks to be completed and I had made 46 of them and stopped, packed up and moved country. So I’ve been making the remaining 18 in the evenings when Alex has been working. I […]
