Odd socks for giants

Last weekend I found myself with spare sewing time because I had to put my book step-outs on hold. But that aside for a moment, it meant I made these ugly sweater blocks (pattern by Kid Giddy) with some silly dog-themed Christmas fabric I knew they had at My Sewing Room. And they became two stockings […]

Check!

Two things checked off the really long to do list. Firstly, today I submitted my first draft of my book! By submitted, I mean that I am currently 16% of the way into the uploading process. It’s almost 3gb of stuff so it’s taking a while. Secondly, I finally got super patient Simone’s bee block […]

Book Review: Blanket Stitch Quilts

Firstly thank you for the emails of support for the magazine I’ve been getting. I’ve made a contender for the worlds biggest spreadsheet working out the schedule and costs and I’m hoping to launch the Kickstarter campaign in just a couple of weeks after I’ve had a meeting with the distributor and finished writing up […]

Book Review: Material World by Perri Lewis

First off, sorry for the bad photos, it’s that time of year again Britain is only light during work hours and it will only get worse! If you don’t already follow Perri’s blog you should. She puts snippets of latest craft news and trends and events up several times a week, here’s the link. I’ve been […]

Book Review: Quilt a Gift for Christmas by Barri Sue Gaudet

This review is brought to you by Gina who is kindly guest blogging today. Since we’re in the last 12 weeks of the year it’s time for the C word! This book covers a wide range of projects for the festive season, though a lot of them could be used for other celebrations with a little […]

Book Review: Antique to Heirloom Jelly Roll Quilts

This book is a bit different to the usual Pam and Nicky Lintott brilliance that you already know I love. This book was only released a week ago so you may not have seen it yet, it’s shiny new! The theme of the book is Pam’s antique quilt collection, showing these off and then making […]

Giveaway: Carefree Quilts book by Joy-Lily

Another book sent to me by the publishers- and this one appeals to the lazy and maths-shy side of me! The book is ideal for those of us that like to just get stuck in and make, without having to do a huge amount of prep work or worry about perfect seam allowances. This book […]

Book Review – Quilter’s Desk Diary 2013

Since the Christmas in July season is upon us, it seemed apt to look at a diary for next year as my next book review. I don’t particularly enjoy talking about the C word until at least October, and even then only in the context of making some homebrew or spreading the cost of presents. […]

Book Review – Jelly Roll Dreams compiled by Pam and Nicky Lintott

I don’t think I’ve said this before, but I love everything that Pam and Nicky Lintott of The Quilt Room do. They are the precut queens and I bow down to them for that as I’m always a bit flummoxed by them without their books to guide me. Quilts I have made from their books […]

Writing another book

I’m working on a plan for my second book and hoping to get a publisher deal this time so I don’t have to worry about printing costs and I can put my feet up a little. I’ve pretty much put my proposal together but I thought it would be nice to ask for your opinion […]
