The Great Canadian Fabric Destash, June 26th 2017

A little while ago- OK two years ago- Chelsie Rosner on Instagram prompted a hashtag for destashing fabrics just within Canada – #thegreatcanadianfabricdestash This was in response to the general #thegreatfabricdestash which tended to be people in the US shipping only to people in the US, and so Canadian’s couldn’t buy all the great fabrics […]

Back on it

I’m thinking of doing some craft fairs just before Christmas. Just one or two, selling purses and bags and maybe some of the other stuff like resin jewellery I’ve been meaning to get rid of for ages. I might take some quilts too, not that I expect them to sell. I’ve sent off for a […]

One last destash

My sewing machine has gone on eBay today so I needed to take a final sweep of my sewing room and decide if I want to sell anything else. You may get some freebie scraps or threads or whatever sewing paraphernalia I have too! Let me know in a comment if you’re interested in anything here […]

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 […]

Welcome back Smokey

Smokey the pyromaniac sewing machine is back and as far as I can tell after a few hours work on it yesterday, his counselling session at Husqvarna has cured him of his ways. In other news, today is the day that the Pfaff goes on eBay now I don’t need it, however I may just […]

January Destash!

I did a bit of a destash on Instagram last weekend, but not everyone has Instagram so I thought I would do a blog version too. The price for postage is £3 in the UK regardless of the amount that you buy, and all you need to do is leave me a comment with the […]

In progress

I’ve almost finished assembling my moose appliqué for the moose quilt and can’t go any further as I need it to demo turned edge machine appliqué at the next EMMQG meeting on Saturday. I have a funny feeling that there won’t be many people following along doing their own designs, and a lot of people […]

Some motivators for the New Year

Well, people seem to have wanted to see my wall chart so here it is. It’s not really as impressive as you were expecting, is it? 😉 At least it works for me, I have a few things listed beneath the month header which I can work on so I’m not restricting myself to one […]


I’ve been listing fabrics over on Crafteroo that I’m destashing- I have about 50 different bits from just short of a FQ to over a yard that must go, it’s taking up valuable shelf space. There’s some proper fuglies in there as well as some stuff I bought that was good for my resin jewellery […]

Sewing books destash

I’ve had a look through my bookshelf and I’ve got some books on there I’ve never read and some very lightly used that I’m not likely to use again. Looking at my Amazon wishlist, there’s quite a lot of “future” books on there, so it’s about time I had a bit of a clearout, and […]
