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 […]

A Finish: Antique Shop Floor

Sometimes I can be forgetful. In my hurry to get my quilt finished and in my suitcase when we flew back to the UK at the start of June, I neglected to photograph it! It’s going to be at least a year before I get it back because I don’t have another flight planned just […]

PennyDog Vlog #8 – July 30th 2017

I made two videos this weekend, one on interfacing and what the differences are between different types (and there was some filming I did around the shop, but the video was corrupted) which is here: And I also did my weekly vlog. I’ve been working on a few things, mostly for classes so it’s a […]

Feedback

I got notes back from the Stampede show, I’m pretty pleased with them and will enter again next year for sure. Next year too, I will wash the quilt before taking it along if it’s been to another show as I noticed dirt in the corner from when it was at the Heritage Park Festival […]

PennyDog Vlog #7 – July 22nd 2017

I’ve finished all the blocks on the Bear in the Log Cabin quilt, and I give you an honest look at sewing the sashing, why I decided I needed to use pins for this top, my choices for backing and batting and thread. Hank makes a guest appearance and a reminder… If you subscribe to […]

Satisfying

Isn’t shopping your stash great? I’m making this Nora bag by Swoon Patterns with supplies I already had – minus the interfacing and stabiliser that I had to buy. And the boning I bought a few weeks back. The bird fabric I bought at least 2 years ago, probably more than 3 years ago. It […]

PennyDog Vlog #6 – July 16th 2017

I thought this would be a good time to talk about bag making. I’m a bit scared because the week after this one I have to teach Blanche to a full class! Scary! I also talk about a couple of bag patterns I have, one of them is free! Other things I talk about with […]

Growing my Tutorials and Patterns

In addition to my weekly vlogs, I’ve been recording tutorial videos for my YouTube Channel (I’m getting better at filming, please subscribe). So far I have one on chain piecing and also I put one online today to demonstrate making flying geese. Apologies- I only just found widescreen on my new (to me, sadly not […]

PennyDog Vlog #5 – July 10th 2017

I missed this weekend’s vlog because I was at work for part of Saturday, then at a work do that I spent way too long at, then Sunday I wasn’t well as a result and we also went to the Stampede for a bit. Check out my Instagram @pennydog if you want to see some […]

Finish Along Q3

Ooh I almost forgot about the finish along for what would have been almost the entire year, but sneaking in under the deadline to share the WIPs I have that are most realistically going to be finished this quarter. There are more, but I think four is enough. This is Bear in the Log Cabin […]
