Sewvivor – PennyDog Patchwork – Kerry Wilkinson

You warned me not to, you told me I had enough on with work, a crazy puppy, going to get married at the end of September, my block of the month schedule and various other writing commitments, but I’m stubborn, and that kind of made me want to do it more. I’ve been yes, no, […]

This weekend

I’m having a few problems with downtime on my blog, so sorry if you’ve been affected since the start of the weekend, also Safari hasn’t been posting my comments to Blogspot blogs all last week, so I have honestly been visiting and writing you things, they’ve just vanished into oblivion and I really can’t face […]

Quarter 3 Finish Along Goals

I didn’t do that great last quarter but I’m not beating myself up about it because things that NEEDED to be done were done, Hank is getting more manageable every day and I got to relax too so I’d say that was a success. At the end of this quarter I get married, plus I […]

Sunday Stash (my first)

Today is the first link up I’ve done for Sunday Stash- I thought I’d use it to chastise myself for the amount of fabric I’ve bought these last few months when I was supposed to be abstaining. There were some other bits purchased too- a FQ or a few yards here and there that have […]

Ziggy / Bowie – another sneaky finish

I’m not sure I like this quilt still but it has been improved since the top finish. I think the face looks wonky? I took off some excess in the end and pieced a back with a rainbow effect. Cindy suggested if I didn’t like it maybe I should add some colour to define the lightning […]

Random Thursday – why my OH is better than Ryan Gosling

Two things he has said to me this week that affirms I’m marrying the right person…. “Is it OK to use fabric scissors on this foam?” – thanks for checking and knowing that they’re not ‘just scissors’! Last night – “You’ve had a really productive day on that quilt.” – I didn’t do anything at […]

Christmas in July fabric giveaway

As it’s a beautiful day today, what could be more oddly timed than a giveaway of Christmas fabrics? I’m working on a secret Christmas quilt- and I don’t really do Christmas quilts, but I have these three fat quarters left over from the 25th and Pine range by Basic Grey that I’m sure someone can […]

Husqvarna Viking Sapphire 875Q Review

I think it’s fair to say this machine has had a thorough testing since I have now had it for 6 months, so I thought I’d summarise good points and bad, then go into a bit more detail. PROS Great price for the harp space size and features Can wind the bobbin from the needle […]

Dress Done

I finally got round to making the final adjustments on my Bike Path dress, and then we took some stupid pictures I actually finished something from this quarter’s list! *jumps for joy*
