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 […]

An acquisition…

Yeah I have new fabric… The jelly roll is my winnings from Lily Pad Quilting, donated by Green Fairy Quilts and it’s a line by American Jane called Ducks in a Row. Having made quilts from her Pezzy Print and Punctuation lines already, this is a good fit for me. No idea what I will […]

Temptation

My fabric must-haves can be summed up into two (well, three if you count any grizzly bear prints) categories. First is 60s and 70s style patterns and second is painterly fabrics. You wouldn’t know this because I tend to hoard these sorts of things (P.S. anyone got any half moon modern ovals fabric they no […]

January Destash!

I did a bit of a destash on Instagram last weekend, but not everyone has Instagram so I thought I would do a blog version too. The price for postage is £3 in the UK regardless of the amount that you buy, and all you need to do is leave me a comment with the […]

Fabric Fursday

Quick post to go through my latest deliveries…! This bundle is from Bobbie Lou’s… And I got a FQ of the foxes from Pin It and Stitch after seeing it on Instagram I won a £30 voucher for Dragonfly Fabrics from Very Berry Handmade last week and my Westfallensoffe goodies (plus some Joel Dewberry) arrived […]

Anyone interested in a quick scrap swap?

Would anyone be interested in an informal UK scrap swap, say 200 grams of designer cotton scraps from 2 1/2″ square upwards in size (unless your partner is after string scraps, etc)? I’m thinking of a post out date in about 2 weeks’ time, and sign ups by the end of the weekend so prior […]

I don’t want more fabric…

… I want more time to use it! My stash is growing faster than I can sew it and I’m now expanding to fill my vintage suitcases!

Do you like this fabric design, huh?

  Well if you do I’d love it so much if you could vote for it in the Connecting Threads contest which opens for votes today. And there’s some corkers in there! The prize is to design a real fabric collection starting from your focus print, plus up to 100 yards of the range and […]

Fantastic Day

Imagine I’m singing that Haircut 100 song… Anyway today, despite being at work, was really really good! First off, I got some flowers in the post. It was from a company I’d been dealing with and hadn’t done anything special other than sending a chunk of money their way but it was still nice. There […]

Squishy post

Other than my quilt top, I’ve received quite a bit of fun post lately. First up I got my neon yellow Michael Miller solid. It was stiff and pretty potent so I pre-washed it (something I never do). It’s taken some of the brightness and crunchiness out but I’m a bit concerned that it’s a […]
