A few other loose ends

I’ve shown you my latest quilts, but I’ve got a few extra loose ends to tie up. Firstly my machine is gone now (oh and also my house) so I am onto handsewing for the foreseeable future. I think it might be one of my very first purchases when we land. I’ve also got some […]

Housekeeping!

Still here, still sewing. The last few weeks I’ve been making something for Quilt Now, largely – but not exclusively – by hand… And also something for Popular Patchwork that has a bit that has something like this going on… And of course I’ve been working on my Schnitzel and Boo mini, the big reveal […]

Allowed purchases- my new favourite pattern

Still on the fabric diet, don’t worry, however I’ve had to buy a couple of spools of Aurifil. I also came across the February issue of American Patchwork & Quilting and had to buy the digital copy (not a fan of the Zinio interface as I want to print it or at least save to […]

And look, what’s this I see on the inside of Sewing World, what is going to be on the cover of January’s issue….? Oh yeah that’s mine too- cornering the sewing magazine market from 20th […]

Trade titles

There are loads of magazines out there, but sometimes it’s nice to get a different perspective and to read the more serious trade titles. For example whilst I worked on the magazine I used to get Craft Focus and Craft Business through the door. These magazines show you new products and have discussions on trends […]
