Georgetown on my Mind…

Nicky, Reene and I were all looking at the Jen Kingwell Georgetown on my Mind pattern shortly after the Fat Quarterly Retreat this year. They won the pattern each this year as part of the pub quiz, and I won it the year before and still hadn’t started it. Now I need a new project […]

Scrappy Day (and a bonus mini giveaway)

There’s a new linky going on down Leanne and Nicky’s way, so I thought I would get in on the action. I’m working on a long term project to use up my scraps. To be fair I use scraps in almost anything, whether pockets for sew together bags, or as part of appliqué designs, I […]

Finish Along – The Final Quarter

Wow, not long to go til the big C, which is a blessing really as I will be desperate for another break from work by then! Because it is the start of October, I now need to get my Finish Along list out there for the coming months, and since I didn’t finish anything at […]

Not much time left!

As some of you will know, I’m working on quite a large project on the computer than needs completing this week (no it’s nothing exciting or quilty in any way) so I can order my holiday spending money, so this is taking priority, BUT… There’s always a little time for sewing isn’t there? I’ve started […]

Having a doodle

I’ve decided to move onto quilting my neglected Lone Star quilt (btw any suggestions for names?) – it’s been sat on top of my shelves for a couple of months now since I basted it. I printed off a photo of the finished top and had a doodle… Other than the bubbles (I hate doing […]

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 […]

Serious progress

Friday night I finished quilting and on Saturday, I put the last stitch in the binding of the Christmas project I’ve been working on. This gave me time to play with these for that rainbow quilt on a white background I promised a couple of posts back. I have almost got the top together for this (no […]

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 […]
