Sunday Stash, A Winner and A Cushion!

Obviously the important stuff first. The second half of my fabric order that I blogged last week arrived on Friday from Pink Castle Fabrics. I got a couple of FQ bundles on their 30% off discount code they were running and added all of these to my stash… Then the EMMQG meeting yesterday was at […]

My first finish along finish of the quarter

Snappy blog post name, huh? I’ve finished the unidentified present on my finish along list for my friend, which I will be gifting on Sunday. she does read my blog but I don’t know if she will over the next few days so I’m risking it and sticking this out there. Yep, my third sew together bag […]

Georgetown on my Mind…

Nicky, Reene and I were all looking at the Jen Kingwell Georgetown on my Mind pattern shortly after the Fat Quarterly Retreat this year. They won the pattern each this year as part of the pub quiz, and I won it the year before and still hadn’t started it. Now I need a new project […]

Scrappy Day (and a bonus mini giveaway)

There’s a new linky going on down Leanne and Nicky’s way, so I thought I would get in on the action. I’m working on a long term project to use up my scraps. To be fair I use scraps in almost anything, whether pockets for sew together bags, or as part of appliqué designs, I […]

English Country Garden BOM – Block 7 – Rose

Sorry for the delay folks, here’s the brand new Rose block. The next one is out on the 3rd November so this pattern is free to download until a week after then (since this one wouldn’t be up for free for long enough with me being away). Previous templates are $1.50 in my Craftsy shop if you missed […]

Sunday Stash

I decided to treat myself to two purchases this week and the first arrived on Friday! I ordered this little lot from Jo at My Bearpaw… I’d like more of the Hadley prints but they seem quite scarce here at the moment. Lucky me though, I spoke to OH about really wanting Best Day Ever […]

Finish Along – The Final Quarter

Wow, not long to go til the big C, which is a blessing really as I will be desperate for another break from work by then! Because it is the start of October, I now need to get my Finish Along list out there for the coming months, and since I didn’t finish anything at […]

I’m back

Lots of blogs to read (847 posts according to Bloglovin) and lots of photos to trawl through, but I’m back And I went shopping too of course. The Sugar Pine Company in Canmore… And Along Came Quilting in Calgary…

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 […]
