WIP Wednesday – dressmaking

When I went to Ottawa last month (almost to the day) I bought another yard of the Lizzy House red dinosaur print from Natural History at Mad About Patchwork. I already had maybe a yard and a half but it wasn’t enough for my shirt pattern and all its yoke-age. I pre-washed it as soon […]

WIP Wednesday: Frankly, Hank Progress

Flying in the face of quilt show norms seems to be very attractive to me…. or maybe it’s because I can play with my best pal, the Sewline Glue Pen, that’s firing me up? Either way, I’m making quick progress on the Frankly, Hank quilt and steaming through glue pen refills. At Festival this year […]

Some slightly different quilting

I took the big quilt off the machine momentarily- I’ve decided I need to quilt a dress panel a day to stay focused and on target for making my dress by the end of the month so this is what I’ve got so far- the front bodice! And the back makes it easier to see… […]

Mysterious close-ups

I’m in danger of not blogging over the next week or so while I finish a last minute project and it would be unsporting of me to reveal it just yet. So here’s some mysterious close ups of the fabrics and shapes in the top I’ve been working on this past week and a bit…. It’s […]

WIP Wednesday – the handsewing edition

My machine went into the shop for a little fine tuning this weekend, nothing serious, just a couple of niggles I wanted looking at before my warranty is over. I hope to have it back this weekend but I’ve not heard anything yet. Fingers crossed…. Anyway, this has limited what I can work on, and […]

Diospyros quilt top

I’ve been working with a Basic Grey Persimmon jelly roll lately and have finally finished the top, ready for basting on my favourite extra large floor this weekend (once I have sorted the backing of course). I’ve not yet decided on a quilt pattern, but I’m thinking something nature-y, like maybe some vines and leaves, and […]

WIP Wednesday

You know how I have a BOM design to do, an appliqué bear quilt, a pixel quilt and a magazine project (not to mention an untouched Finish Along list) I’m working on, or SHOULD be working on? I’ve also got a 100-180 page manual I’m working on on the side for holiday spending money (one […]

WIP Wednesday

I’m still here, I’m still reading blogs daily and I’m still sewing 🙂 I’m currently working on something secret. I totally hate that as I’m rubbish with secrets. It’s using the new Rustique collection that isn’t even out yet, how lucky am I? Hopefully I will get a bit of time doing more on it […]

WIP Wednesday: Heading into Quarter 2

Three Finishes in quarter 1 out of six possibles ain’t bad eh? I did work on the other three though, I was a good girl, I just didn’t actually finish them. So here’s what I want to have done by the end of June (starting with the new stuff)… My current obsession, the postage stamp […]

WIP Wednesday – Scrappy Special

My finish along list included a plan to make a scrappy log cabin quilt big enough for a bed. I’m now aiming for a 7 blocks x 7 blocks layout so I’ve made a bit of progress and now two blocks have become this… I’m finding it a little bit dull again so I’m going […]
