Another milestone reached. All 10 rows sewn, now to sew them together into the final top! And for a little “snack” break, I bought a couple of really cute kits from Hatched and Patched.
72 nine inch blocks completed! I got a notification from my photo app that i started printing the shapes on fabric FOUR YEARS AGO. It’s fine. We're here now and I’ve already begun sewing the first row together.
I’ve stalled a bit on this quilt, so decided I needed to see what the final top would look like. I laid out most of the completed blocks on the spare bed to get an idea. Laying it out helped a lot. I like the way it’s looking. For a while there, I wasn’t sure… Continue reading Storm at Sea progress
I covered my camera strap years ago and being the kind of thing that you don't normally wash, it has gotten really, really manky. To the point where hubby refused to put it around his neck when I needed him to hold it for me. He was right, it was disgusting. I found some really… Continue reading Camera strap cover
I'm planning two quilts for my boy. A clamshell and a compass star quilt. I've made a start on the clamshell because it will be a smaller "baby" quilt even though he is more kid than toddler these days. I started off with this print that I bought last year and added some homespun colours.… Continue reading Clamshell quilt

I'm working on several different projects, but here's an update on the Advent Calendar. I have 16 ornaments decorated with sequins and beads. Eight to… Continue reading Time in a bottle
I decided to order some 4mm flat sequins, so when they finally arrive from China (hopefully within a month), I'll start embellishing!
As I sit here on the train, I realised it has really been a long time since my last post. So I thought I would a least post a couple of my recent finishes. Some time after the first season of Outlander aired and the internet was abuzz over the show, Lion Brand released some… Continue reading Crochet again!
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
So last year, there was a sale on some DIY kits at Alabama Chanin and I just couldn't resist ordering the swing skirt. I chose peacock fabric and slate thread. I've sewn the first panel (out of four), and have just started to cut out the centers. Three more to go and a mystery quilt… Continue reading Alabama Chanin Swing Skirt
