Satisfying

Isn’t shopping your stash great? I’m making this Nora bag by Swoon Patterns with supplies I already had – minus the interfacing and stabiliser that I had to buy. And the boning I bought a few weeks back. The bird fabric I bought at least 2 years ago, probably more than 3 years ago. It […]

Finish Along Q3

Ooh I almost forgot about the finish along for what would have been almost the entire year, but sneaking in under the deadline to share the WIPs I have that are most realistically going to be finished this quarter. There are more, but I think four is enough. This is Bear in the Log Cabin […]

PennyDog Vlog #4 – July 1st 2017

I missed last week due to work, outdoor activities and general sickness, but I’m back to briefly share what I’ve been up to this week. I think it might be a little bit out of focus- well I am, the fabric, etc not so much – so I plan to invest in an actual video […]

This weekend I will be mostly…

This quilt needs finishing in the next 5 days and getting in the post with the Thumbtacks quilt for magazine deadlines. Every weekday I do a little bit more, so maybe it will be a flimsy by the weekend and I can quilt it. I’m thinking of calling it “Connecting Four” – it’s four rows […]

It’s a Scraptastic Tuesday!

I made progress on an old WIP I’ve not touched in a year- YEAH! My scrappy log cabin quilt needed 64 blocks to be completed and I had made 46 of them and stopped, packed up and moved country. So I’ve been making the remaining 18 in the evenings when Alex has been working. I […]

Oh yeah remember this?

So I had this list at the start of the year… And things have taken a longer time, with different order and approach, so it looks like this now: I have however nearly finished a quilt for a magazine (not yet written up) and I don’t think I will make another Hank quilt now, I […]

Sewing every spare second

Over the weekend I continued where I left off on the last post. I decided to put my yellow dress together first. I got quite far… And then got angry, frustrated and sweary. I tore the zip out at least three times trying to get it to sit right. I find sewing pattern instructions are […]

Loving it

I shipped off the last requirements for my book today, and emailed over all of the images and second draft copy yesterday. Whilst I have enjoyed the process and would do it all over again, its so liberating to be working on a completely different style again. I treated myself to start a new project […]

Selvedge Salvage

Today I learned that what I call a selvedge is the British spelling of selvage. I wondered why I had seen it written in two different forms. I’ve collected selvedges for a while now, maybe a couple of years. When I was in the UK I’d pass them to Di in our EMMQG meetings, but […]

Plans

It’s so frustrating that I can’t share pretty much all the projects I’ve worked on over the last six months or more! I only have six quilts to show for 2016 on the Finished page, and that’s entirely untrue. There’s four more (if you include a three piece quilt) I’ve not been able to show. […]
