Introducing the Marielle bag pattern – Craftsy store now open for business

So I’ve decided to reopen my Craftsy pattern store now that I’m settled this side of the Atlantic, and I’m launching with a new bag pattern as well as uploading the three quilting patterns I had previously listed, including the complete English Country Garden BOM. This is Marielle…. The pattern is just $6 USD and […]

Lizzy House and the Meadow Quilt

Today was fun! I got to spend the day at the Wonderfil Threaducation Centre in Calgary with nine other MQG ladies and Lizzy House on what will be one of the final dates ever on the Meadow quilt tour, as Lizzy is getting married soon and plans to travel less and be more home-based from now […]

Fun times ahead!

I’m going to be working on a big project that I can’t share for the next few months so things are likely to be quieter on here than they already are. I won’t be making very much else on the side, but I’ll try to pop by occasionally, even if it’s with a Hank or […]

My new sewing room and a round up

I’ve moved into a new house and a few days ago our stuff all arrived! So after a few days of hard work, my sewing room now looks like this… I’ve done another design for a magazine which I need to sew up soon, but at the moment my project on the wall is Lotus by Jaybird […]

I’m still alive

I’m here! We’re all emigrated and stuff, the house is sold, we have ID and bank accounts and healthcare and a new sewing machine…. No house yet but I am working full time at My Sewing Room in Calgary so I get to be around and be inspired by lovely fabrics every Tuesday to Saturday. […]

A few other loose ends

I’ve shown you my latest quilts, but I’ve got a few extra loose ends to tie up. Firstly my machine is gone now (oh and also my house) so I am onto handsewing for the foreseeable future. I think it might be one of my very first purchases when we land. I’ve also got some […]

A gift

Earlier in the week I went to Ange’s house and there was a surprise there! The members of East Midlands Modern Quilt Group had secretly worked on a quilt for me as a leaving present- and of course it was brown, cheeky gits! The maple leaf design was just perfect, and the design was put […]

Shine Bright – My final finish for 2015, plus Project 48

It’s quilted and bound (and has been for about a week but I haven’t had the opportunity for photos until today)! Here is Shine Bright in all its glory! Now I guess I need to finish the pattern writing and get my first Quilt Workout pattern out there. While I was taking photos, this guy […]

Giveaway winner!

The winner for the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day/week has been drawn! Congrats to Shauna! Hopefully be back soon with a finished quilt- moving out in three days!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

It’s Giveaway Day and I nearly completely missed it! I’m behind on my blog reading, that’s my excuse. This week is my last week at work. I’m emigrating to Canada from here in the UK in a few weeks and moving out of my house in less than two. My sewing machine has sold (I […]
