So about a decade ago, I ordered this kit from Alabama Chanin. It is still unfinished and to distract myself from starting new projects, I'm looking at it again. The original design was allover Le Moyne stars, but I've departed from that idea before. I reopened my EQ file and I've settled on this design.… Continue reading Indigo Star Quilt Revisited
Yeah. Because it's not enough to make the blanket according to the original instructions. And actually, because I opted to use Inklingo to create the shapes, it's already different and adding a few more of my own choices make the blanket truly my own. Right? Right!So I recreated the original pattern in EQ7 so I… Continue reading Indigo Star Variations
That's right! I've managed to start and complete a project! Remember the crochet from the last post? Well, it's done and has been done for a while. I've just been so busy with work, baby and moving house. The main reason I've made progress on any of my projects is my commute to work. Which… Continue reading A finish and progress on two other projects
This skirt has been washed in my front loader many times now, and dried on a clothesline. I know I was curious as to what it would look like after several washings, so I thought others would be, too.
So it seems that I'm getting married very soon. Even though it has been booked for months now, I still feel like it's snuck up on me. I've been frantically working on this and I'm really feeling the panic now as the day looms in front of me. Dress details: I ordered a custom DIY… Continue reading Alabama Chanin Wedding Dress Progress

And here it is, full of stuffing. I think more stuffing might have been good, but I didn't want it to be… Continue reading Some more Alabama Chanin projects
I decided to make this cute little bunny toy as a quick baby present for my friend because it's looking likely that the baby quilt I'm planning won't be finished before she is born. So I downloaded the pattern from the Alabama Chanin site and printed it up, cut out the pieces. But they didn't make… Continue reading The importance of scale
My projects keep multiplying but my free time seems to be halving. Gah! So this skirt is finally done! It basically took a year from receiving it. The facets pattern is great, but there are a lot of shapes to sew around and cut out. My next Alabama project will be to attempt airbrushing and… Continue reading One project down, two to start!
Still quilting but making decent progress.
But it's late and I want to take a decent picture of it. In the meantime, I'm still busily quilting away on the red and white quilt. I really love this part and I find it hard to stop for the night and go to bed. Unless my fingers are sore like this: It might… Continue reading Alabama Chanin DIY Swing Skirt is finished!
