Gigglish Allsorts

This post has absolutely nothing to do with the kids TV programme from the 90s. A bit of housekeeping. There’s three projects on the list to complete before Christmas and as of last night, that list is now two. I finished off this Sew Together bag so now I have two for gifting. My remaining […]

I get to start something new!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this picture a few weekends ago… Well the design has been commissioned and the plan is a quilt that is 84″ square from 16 of these “Card Trick Reloaded” blocks. It’s going to be largely solids, but I have a nice new blade and I’ve […]

The macaroni effect

I’ve started on the bear quilt and I’m very glad I have… There’s something very enjoyable about the cut, stick, repeat way these quilts come together. There’s no sewing and I can be more sociable- I can do batches in front of the TV rather than out in my sewing room all night. It’s exactly […]

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 […]

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 appliquĂ© 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 […]
