Classes Coming up at My Sewing Room

Apologies, I didn’t get round to filming at the open house, or when I was back in the UK. I do have some photos, a couple of videos from Instagram, plus all the prices and dates for my upcoming classes though! I’m running EPP and QAYG Venti Tote again, plus two new classes, the Blanche […]

PennyDog Vlog #2 – June 3rd 2017

Working away on the Antique Shop Floor quilt, and some fabrics I bought but I hope some of you can help me decide what to do with the swatches, and share any walking foot tips with me since mine is looking wonky! The sound isn’t as good as when I used the iPhone, maybe I’ll […]

Festival of Quilts Calgary 2017

So today I have to go and collect my horse quilt from the show because it finished yesterday. I didn’t take a whole bunch of pictures, but I thought you might like to see these ones. It was HOT there and we didn’t hang around for too long, and I didn’t even buy anything- really! […]

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 […]
