Progress this weekend

On Friday morning I made this little guy for a package I put together for a little girl that’s just become a big sister. The pattern is from the current issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting. Whilst I rarely make things from magazines (I just tend to read the articles), this was very tempting as […]


I’ve been yucky and ill the last few days, but then it appears so has EVERYONE in the UK, I’m sure there’s a secret pandemic. So whilst my brain decided to go doolally, making my body ache and me sleep a stupid amount (coinciding with a mild allergic reaction to a hypoallergenic hair dye and […]

Hoots Mon!

Before any of you point out that “the moose loose aboot this hoose” is referring to a mouse, I don’t care, alright? This is the finished Hoots Mon quilt and it has been suggested that this is the most worthwhile achievement of my life so far. STATS Size – 52″ x 41″ Number of blocks […]

Pants! Or What Would Superman Do?

I’m taking part in Sonia’s knicker swap, but the deadline is Friday for receiving them, so this weekend I really needed to get a move on. I bought this pattern and set to work. I found attaching the gusset to the front a bit confusing, so I may have done that bit wrong. Also I […]

iPhone Inspired Cushion

I managed another finish from my Q1 list this weekend, my cushion… Inspired by this icon on my phone… It’s made with EPP, I clipped and glued the curves like I would with applique pieces but to the paper on the underside and then pulled the paper out after sewing it to the background, by […]

Christmas, finished. End of.

That’s it I’m doing no more Christmas sewing. I have a Macbook sleeve to sew for Alex to be able to transport it safely when we go visiting (his last laptop one doesn’t fit this computer), but that’s not a gift so it doesn’t count, besides, it’s almost finished. So I’ve finished the oven gloves… […]

Park West

I’ve finished the Park West pattern by Sew Sweetness just in time to enter the Sew Mama Sew competition (it’s all about SMS this week). It does use quite a lot of fabric and I was ill prepared, so it’s made with a mixture of fabrics, a dalmatian print (thanks Ange for the extra bit […]

Picnic Path Quilt – finished

This quilt is flying off to America very very soon so I’m not going to have any daylight hours to photograph it in, so these pics will have to do, folks! STATS Size – 48″ x 60″ Number of blocks – 15 rows (rather than blocks) Time to piece – About 3 hours Time to […]

Punctuation quilt finished

And that’s two out of four finish along goals! Two quilts done for Christmas now, just a cushion to make and it’s only December 1st. Pretty pleased with that. This is the first quilt I ever started. I made 6 blocks out of the Snowball Sampler Quilt in this book from a jelly roll in 2011 […]

Parquetry – complete!

I know how much you all love the colour brown, so earlier in the year at the Uttoxeter show when Ange, Susan, Reene and Katy were making rude remarks about the largely brown traditional quilts, I decided to be subversive and declared I would make a contemporary brown quilt (sorry I still disagree with the […]
