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 […]

One last destash

My sewing machine has gone on eBay today so I needed to take a final sweep of my sewing room and decide if I want to sell anything else. You may get some freebie scraps or threads or whatever sewing paraphernalia I have too! Let me know in a comment if you’re interested in anything here […]

British Patchwork and Quilting

The current issue of British Patchwork and Quilting features my Dahlia Cushion pattern. I made it a while ago but it makes sense to show it now. It features a pillowcase style closure with binding and circle applique. And it will double up nicely as a Christmas present too.

Hello Chevron … And A Giveaway Winner

Well it’s quilted, bound and finally photographed. Here is Hello Chevron in completed glory! Three charm packs and a couple of years later, it’s all made up but I haven’t decided what to do with it yet, whether it will be a gift, if I’ll submit it to a magazine or put the pattern up […]

Long arming

On Sunday, I travelled across the country to Telford to rent a long arm machine for a few hours at Penny’s house (see Ginger Patch Crafts website). This was my first go on a long arm machine ever and I was surprised at how easy it was. I really loved stitch regulation, that is so […]

The Quilty Math Workbook

Carrie of Carrie Actually asked for reviewers for her Quilty Math Workbook much earlier in the month, and I’m only just getting round to doing so because I am a rubbish person! This book has lots of useful tools within its 25 pages. It might not seem like a lot, but they are mostly sheets […]

The quilts I am taking

I have made a fair few quilts in my time, I probably make around seven or eight decent size ones a year, I think. I haven’t counted. With moving, I’ve attempted to streamline my collection a bit, but there are some quilts that I can’t sell or giveaway. They are my sofa quilts and they are staying […]

Giveaway! Flower Mill Quilt Pattern by BasicGrey

I have a giveaway for you! Whilst I’ve yet to actually get my hands on Mon Ami fabric myself, the pattern I designed with this line is out in shops as mentioned in my last blog post. I received a handful of copies yesterday from Allison at BasicGrey and so I’m hosting three giveaways! This […]

I’m writing a bag pattern! And some other stuff

I’m working on a bag pattern at the moment which will have two zips the front and one at the back (oh and one inside, lots of zips!), it will look a little bit like this… But for now it looks like this, ahem, yeah. No words written or stitches made, but if you’d like […]
