This weekend

I’m having a few problems with downtime on my blog, so sorry if you’ve been affected since the start of the weekend, also Safari hasn’t been posting my comments to Blogspot blogs all last week, so I have honestly been visiting and writing you things, they’ve just vanished into oblivion and I really can’t face […]

Quarter 3 Finish Along Goals

I didn’t do that great last quarter but I’m not beating myself up about it because things that NEEDED to be done were done, Hank is getting more manageable every day and I got to relax too so I’d say that was a success. At the end of this quarter I get married, plus I […]

A finish: Washi Tape Quilt

Ooh that was quite a big pause in posts for me! I have been doing quite a bit, and have a finish to post up today, albeit not one from my finish along list…. Still got to finish the things that pay the bills first, right? So here is my Washi Tape quilt… I forgot […]

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 tonight […]

Sad times

Well not totally sad, good news first. I finished this top and got the tutorial commissioned! Bad news: My camera lens is broken around the 50mm mark. Apparently it thinks this is in focus… I know why it’s doing this- I dropped it earlier in the week. I’m sad because it’s quite an old camera, […]

More-Economical Blocks

I’ve been having a play with some scraps, and have a way of making blocks that look a bit like Economy blocks, but they have no waste whatsoever and they’re not paper pieced. The only downside is the corners get chopped off. So I decided to embrace this and add some appliqué to make it […]

A flimsy finish

I managed to do quite a lot of sewing this weekend, and that’s not including the guild meeting where I worked on Hello Chevron (duty bound). Despite the omnipotent puppy I finished piecing the lone star-esque quilt top this afternoon. I am still rubbish at Y seams, but it works and my points are mostly […]

Choices, choices

Tomorrow I’m heading up to the guild meeting in Grantham as I’m sure not missing another one! I tend to take a WIP with me, so there’s no excuses or temptation to start something new. I may or may not do it this time, here are my options for consideration… Continue Hello Chevron- I did two […]

Have you noticed…

…that I haven’t finished a quilt since February. It’s now May- this is worrying. I have started two more smaller quilts though this weekend, plus a secret project for another secret project (I hate secret projects, don’t you? This is why I show you quilts that I then go on to pitch to magazines, I […]

A liiiittle bit of progress

So in the last fortnight I have managed to do most of the turned edge applique prep for the postage stamp quilt, which is all just held together with glue right now (mostly whilst shouting, NO, GET DOWN, LEAVE IT)… And I’ve even managed to be on the machine long enough to make this block which will […]
