Hi.

Hi folks, I thought I’d pop in and say hello. After a supremely busy few weeks there’s been a sudden lull and I don’t know what to do with myself.

Tidying up my workspace is on the top of my to-do list and I made a start tonight. After a year of non-stop activity it’s become a chaotic mess and I can’t find a thing. Look at those tidy threads and buttons! They will stay tidy for 0.3 seconds but look… TIDY!

I have a box of drawings and templates to sort out, and there’s ‘that’ thread box to tackle. I think I should just add tinsel, don’t you think it looks like a thread Christmas tree? ;O>

THAT thread

It’s also time to find the boxes of Christmas decorations and get into the spirit of all things tinselly.

Did you see the photo on Facebook of my visitor today? A tiny snake in my drink bottle. He was so small but very aggressive. He was swaying like a cobra about to strike LOL. At least he wasn’t as big as this guy (who was on our verandah a little while ago).

While I was looking for the photo of the python I found this photo of the projects from the Happy Quilts book. It was taken the day that everything was returned from the publisher. It was such a relief to be done LOL.

happy quiltsNext week I’m going to do a survey to see what you’d like me to tackle next year as well as size preferences etc. Have a bit of a think about it in the meantime, I always appreciate your input. Have a lovely weekend everyone, I’m determined to get to bed before midnight tonight so I’d better log off and finish up for the night. Take care, toni xx


Do you need a quick Christmas project to make? These little reindeer are so easy to put together and look really sweet. The pattern is free (click the “Free Stuff” menu tab at the top of the page).

  1. I have downloaded your beautiful flower fairies pattern but I cannot find the pattern piece that goes under the flowers, it seems to be like a bow. I hope I haven’t missed it???

    Thank you for your help

  2. I think you you should add tiny twinkle lights to your thread tree. Love the reindeer quilt. Some people like snowmen or Santa’s. I like the nativity and Reindeer. BTW you must live in either Florida or Texas to see snakes as close as you are (speaking from experience). Thanks for your designs 🙂

  3. I love all the projects you make Toni and it’s nice to see my craft room looks like yours! I went to a quilt retreat this weekend, so I did tidy up a lot of stuff as I found the projects I wanted to take away to work on. I don’t know if I could handle the snakes, big or small, I find them all very scary! I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas and I will think about the projects I’d like you to make (really anything you make I love), haha … Deb xx

  4. Love the reindeer ! My sewing room needs a little “attention” but at the moment occupied by two of my five grandchildren who are all here along with their parents for Thanksgiving -has been wonderful but Christmas sewing awaits next week. Maybe a neat and organized sewing room in the new year.
