Lizzy House and the Meadow Quilt

Today was fun! I got to spend the day at the Wonderfil Threaducation Centre in Calgary with nineĀ other MQG ladies and Lizzy House on what will be one of the final dates ever on the Meadow quilt tour, as Lizzy is getting married soon and plans to travel less and be more home-based from now […]

Bag Boot Camp!

Do you want to give your bag making skills a kick up the gusset? Can you get to the south of the Peak District from the 18th to the 22nd March for a lovely countryside retreat away from work, demanding offspring and spouses, housework, the general mundanity of everyday life (day tickets also available)? Honestly […]

Come pixel with me?

This week I finished up a class sample… And on Saturday 6th June I will be teaching pixel quilting using this block as the example project which finishes at a nice size to make into a cushion or a mini quilt. Even though there are 361 squares, there are only 71 seams to sew. Intrigued? […]

Stuff’s still going on

I have completed an article, and one of the two class samples, so I’m still on stuff, even if I’ve been reasonably quiet about it. Also Hank’s big face has been basted and I’m going to start quilting it this week. The class sample I have finished is for the glue stick applique class on […]

Dog Baths and Workshops

WARNING: Image heavy post with lots of dogs! After ages of meaning to try out the Wash and Wags soap from Just Soaps, we finally got round to it yesterday. Jane from Just Soaps sent me one as a little something for Fletcher after my post about the failed dog show a while back. He […]

The start of something wonderful…

I got the keys to this place on Friday! Yes, all of it (except the Lexus 4×4)! All of the rooms are huge, including the kitchen… The breakfast room (which will be the pie room as OH is going into business with a local chef)… The man room (where OH will go to think upon […]

Make 50: Week 13 – Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve and Rothley Contemporary Crafts!

Something came to my head whilst walking the dog this morning so I knocked up a quick prototype. I was basically thinking about bracelets with heart on with photos in for a “Wear your heart on your sleeve” range and promotion, and I was thinking about a cufflink range for men with a similar idea. […]

Getting better

The backlog is steadily clearing. I mainly have a shop order (25 items in total) to fulfill and the craft fair to get over at the weekend, so now my mind has wandered over to bigger things… Someone I work with has told me about a unit to let at a tourist attraction craft centre, […]
