Sew together bags

I finally finished my sew together bags! My friend Gina kindly (and calmly) fixed my dress for me last night as I had a bit of a disaster involving an iron and then realising it was possibly too big for me now too. While she did that, I sat and hand stitched the binding down […]

I caved

I have been trying to stick to 200 pieces of fabric at any one time for so long but it clearly wasn’t working. I have been doing this by only owning 200 comic cards, which I used to store anything from a FQ upwards on two bookcase shelves. Thing is, for well over a year […]

Finally, a summer finish reveal

I made two things this summer that I thought would be inconsiderate of me to show when I had actually finished them, but since this magazine is now arriving with subscribers (and in shops Tuesday)… I can show you my Kantha tote bag I used some of the Rustique range by Emily Herrick and obnoxiously […]

Not much time left!

As some of you will know, I’m working on quite a large project on the computer than needs completing this week (no it’s nothing exciting or quilty in any way) so I can order my holiday spending money, so this is taking priority, BUT… There’s always a little time for sewing isn’t there? I’ve started […]

Not your usual WIP plus Hug Hearts

I haven’t actually been sewing at all the last few days, which makes blogging a bit harder. The usual times have been filled with taking Hank to puppy day care, getting shin splints, boring appointments, going out for a carvery and that kind of thing, but I have kind of been working. I’ll have more […]

Having a doodle

I’ve decided to move onto quilting my neglected Lone Star quilt (btw any suggestions for names?) – it’s been sat on top of my shelves for a couple of months now since I basted it. I printed off a photo of the finished top and had a doodle… Other than the bubbles (I hate doing […]

Diospyros quilt top

I’ve been working with a Basic Grey Persimmon jelly roll lately and have finally finished the top, ready for basting on my favourite extra large floor this weekend (once I have sorted the backing of course). I’ve not yet decided on a quilt pattern, but I’m thinking something nature-y, like maybe some vines and leaves, and […]

English Country Garden BOM – Block 6 – Dahlia

This one will be up for an extra week folks as I’m going on holiday to get married and won’t be back the first monday of October. Luckily I made this one a good one! Here’s your next pattern for the BOM, the Dahlia. The next one is out on the 13th October so this pattern is […]

WIP Wednesday

You know how I have a BOM design to do, an appliqué bear quilt, a pixel quilt and a magazine project (not to mention an untouched Finish Along list) I’m working on, or SHOULD be working on? I’ve also got a 100-180 page manual I’m working on on the side for holiday spending money (one […]

What do you think?

OK so I have three projects on the go right now, only one of which you have actually seen. And then I want to make OH the bear quilt. I’ve been thinking though, I would kinda like to make another pixel quilt. OH says I should go for smaller pixels so I am thinking 3/4″ […]
