That’ll do, pig

I have a quicker-than-anticipated finish today! I need to make some class samples that I hadn’t accounted time for, plus even though I have the Easter weekend coming up in which I plan to sleep, sew and go to a comedy festival (and maybe do a bit of cleaning), I have designated it to finishing […]

Better to give than to receive?

Not if you’re me, I got the best mini in the #IGminiswap, suckerrrrs! I’m dead chuffed with this, it was genuinely my favourite in #flossysgroup, if not overall (though I do have a hypothetical ‘highly commended’ list). I went back and looked at my contribution to the WIP images posted and I was pretty rubbish […]

Tote bag swap

I wish I had realised how bad the photos were of this before I sent it off on Saturday! I made a bag for the secret tote bag swap- my partner liked dull colours with a bit of orange and duck egg blue which meant it was a bit of a challenge to move away […]


I’ve been yucky and ill the last few days, but then it appears so has EVERYONE in the UK, I’m sure there’s a secret pandemic. So whilst my brain decided to go doolally, making my body ache and me sleep a stupid amount (coinciding with a mild allergic reaction to a hypoallergenic hair dye and […]


Look! Tracy sent me these in the swap Sonia is hosting and they arrived yesterday. She also kindly included some Honky Tonk FQs (Cosmo Cricket is one of my favourite designers- especially love those guitars) knowing I’m on a fabric diet, which will help me keep going on the straight and narrow. Tracy is the […]

Pants! Or What Would Superman Do?

I’m taking part in Sonia’s knicker swap, but the deadline is Friday for receiving them, so this weekend I really needed to get a move on. I bought this pattern and set to work. I found attaching the gusset to the front a bit confusing, so I may have done that bit wrong. Also I […]

Anyone interested in a quick scrap swap?

Would anyone be interested in an informal UK scrap swap, say 200 grams of designer cotton scraps from 2 1/2″ square upwards in size (unless your partner is after string scraps, etc)? I’m thinking of a post out date in about 2 weeks’ time, and sign ups by the end of the weekend so prior […]

Received mini quilt!

I was very very lucky and I got Corri as my secret partner in the mini quilt swap- look at what she sent me, it’s a Triangle City! I am so lucky, I hope she gets a lovely package in return… Chocolate, a cup cosy AND a charm pack of Lush Uptown as extras- how […]

Low Volume Swap

Just a quick note to say slots are filling up fast for the Low Volume Charm Swap run by Rachael of The Floral Suitcase, so if you want in, go join this Flickr group and get in on sign up thread 2!


I’m taking part in Lucy and Laura’s Lost the Love/Fugly Fabric party and I have some things you might well be interested in! First up, anyone want any teeeeny tiny 1/2″ honeycomb paper pieces? Never used as I wasn’t expecting such weeny things! I also have a fabric tube turner/ cord inserter thingy, somehow I […]
