What do you want? Also, let’s collaborate!

I’m worried I’m getting into a bit of a rut where I’m not expanding my audience and network. I have some questions if you have a couple of minutes to answer one or two of them and leave a comment, I think it could pull me out! How are you finding new patterns, designers, etc […]

Frustration!

I think I’m missing something- possibly quite obvious- here and I need your help if you can! You know how I’ve been battling with half rectangle triangles? Well I reattempted them again, prepared to trim them down and make them bigger from the start. This is how my first Wallander block (of 100 I might […]

A Quilt vs Credit Card update plus Free Motion Quilting

Advice and opinions please!

As part of my Thursday Night Project (a weekly thing over at Crafteroo) I had a play about trying to create a new technique to imitate dew and verdigris using copper cut outs. I’m not convinced that it has worked particularly successfully. I think I like the leaf, which has got a textured amber finish, […]
