A Finish – the yellow dress

I find it difficult to be completely satisfied with garment making but I refuse to make a muslin because of the extra time and money; maybe I need to decide which is most important! So this dress is finished, not without issue, though I finally understood how vents work and I learned to make a […]

The Finish Along is back – Q1 2017

I’m not expecting to get many WIPs finished this quarter, but as usual, I’m going to give it a go, and suggest three things that could possibly get done, or at least develop a bit further! This dress still hasn’t got any further since last quarter, it’s time I got that done. Another no-changer – […]

Submitting to Quiltcon

At the very last minute I submitted some quilts for Quiltcon 2017. I was a recipient of a Michael Miller challenge bundle, so I was obliged to get my act together and send it in. I finished it on the weekend and then forgot the bit where you take photos…. When I got to the […]

Finish Along 2016 Q4

It’s a cliche, but this year has flown by. It’s the last quarter of the Finish Along already! I’ve booked to do a craft fair and thinking about booking another, so my list is largely so I have stuff to display and sell, and I need to finish these fast. I have things I want […]

Finished! My Lizzy House Meadow Quilt

So it only took three weeks after finishing this quilt to actually photograph it and post about it…. This is my Q3 Finish Along finish, the pattern is Lizzy House’s exclusive Meadow quilt pattern that she only teaches in class (because the pattern is open to some interpretation and personal influence which in turn can […]

Finish Along Quarter 3

The end of this quarter ties in exactly with when I need to finish my book projects by, but I thought I would try and make a bit of an effort with the Finish Along still, despite knowing I will be busy busy! This is the project I’ve chosen to aim to finish, my Meadow […]

Fancy & Fabulous Skirt

I’ve got a second finish amidst the chaos that is writing book and magazine stuff. Each time I make this skirt pattern I get a bit better at it; this time I am happier with the finish on the zip at the back. As with all the skirts I make, it has pockets- an essential […]

I finished a thing!

My Hank-esque hanger on the stairway now has something hanging on it! I think the block is called Grandma’s Star and it uses just a few charm squares, I used Doe by Carolyn Friendlander and added the rest to my scrap drawers. The triangle at the bottom is a bit wonky but I’m trying to […]

Finish Along – Quarter 2

It’s Finish Along time again and I’m sort of taking part this quarter. As I work on my book I plan to do a bit of other stuff in between projects, so finish a book thing, work on another project, finish a book thing, work on another project, you get the idea. My other projects […]

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 […]
