So here are a few photos of the quilting done so far. Do you think I should add another inner circle of quilting? Technically, I think this enough quilting for the batting, but I do feel that it could use more from an aesthetic point of view.
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
My sister and I went to the Stitches and Craft Show here in Melbourne a month ago. I hadn't been to this one before, but enjoyed it immensely. Though smaller, it had plenty of vendors and stalls and free parking! I found it to be more intimate overall, and while it was quite crowded in… Continue reading A little crochetÂ
And, oh, so many things have happened! But mostly, this little guy has been taking all my project time and then some! But that's not all! I've been trying to tidy up my project closet, and found some treasures. My very first quilt was the quilt I started in my first quilting class twenty-something years… Continue reading It’s been a while
I signed up for the Curves class by Rachel through her Stitched in Color blogÂ and the Clamshell Pillow is one of the many projects in the class. I haven't had time to do anywhere near all of them, but I was determined to do at least this pillow! And definitely the Scallop Quilt. Anyway, I… Continue reading Clamshell Pillow
And it's done! I sewed the sides with French seams and bound the opening, quilt-style.
I like to use a little pillow for lumbar support in the car. I don't need it, but boy does my back feel better when i use it! But my current pillow is getting old, so I thought I would take the opportunity to replace it. I couldn't find a pillow form of the same… Continue reading Spool Block travel pillow
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
I had thought to discard the 7th row and column making the quilt 6x6 blocks instead. When I thought this, I assumed that this would make the quilt much smaller, so proposed to add a 3" pieced border to compensate, but after throwing up the blocks on the design wall, I decided that the quilt… Continue reading Winding Ways progress report
Jillian of Dakota Essence started another Mug Rug Swap way back in January this year, but something must have happened as there haven't been any updates from her since February. I hope she is okay! I signed up for this immediately, even though I already had several projects on the boil, because these are fun… Continue reading Inklingo Mug Rug Swap 2014
