Friday Faves on the Farm

Happy Friday lovelies and Happy (belated) Fourth of July to our lovely friends in the US.

A quick question – do your children or grandchildren watch Bluey? I’ve been thinking…

This week’s Friday Faves are the Windy Hill Farm quilt, the Little Bears quilt, the Snuggle Bears soft toys, the Jingle Bells Snack Mats, and the Merry Christmas Snack mats.

Please don’t purchase the Windy Hill Farm pattern if you own the Happy Quilts book. A similar pattern is available in the book.

All patterns have a printed version and they are on special this week too – except the Windy Hill Farm pattern. The printed pattern is $16.50. This is a huge pattern and I need to increase the price to make even a small profit. There may be some further price increases on a small amount of patterns over the next few weeks. Sorry guys. xx

Little Bears Quilt

The Winner of our Thermoweb June giveaway – for sharing your project photos with me – is Gay T. I’ll be in contact shortly Gay. Congratulations!


Terri and I have been updating the ‘mug rug’ patterns. The internet has decided that ‘mug rug’ is a granny term and has updated it to ‘snack mat’. Therefore… these are our Christmas snack mats LoL. They are now available in printed format.

The Snuggle Bears pattern includes the Grumpy Grizzly templates. If you already own the Happy Quilts book or the Grumpy Grizzly pattern you don’t need to purchase this pattern.

Please message me if you are unsure whether you already have these patterns. Occasionally I will change the name of a pattern to try and rank better in the search algorithms. Gone are the days when you purchased most patterns through your local quilt store, now we’re competing with a billion other entries on Google and have to stay as relevant as possible.

Terri has been helping me pull everything together and we’re hoping to be done updating everything by the end of this year – sooner I hope! Once done, the patterns will remain as they are and won’t be changed in the future.

Have a lovely weekend everyone, take care, toni xx

Windy Hill Farm

Hey lovelies, the Windy Hill Farm quilt pattern will be available in our Etsy and web-stores at the end of this week. If you own the Happy Quilts book you won’t need to purchase the pattern.

The Santa and Mrs Claus plus reindeer mug rug/placemat pattern will be available as a printed pattern this week. Previously it was only available as a PDF. Have a lovely week, toni xx

Christmas in July with Turkey Dressing.

Happy End of Christmas in July!

In between painting the lounge room walls, again, I finished the patterns for the “Santa’s House 2” and “Reindeer Games” quilt patterns. They’ve been uploaded to our Etsy store for the special introductory price of $5.00 (plus whatever taxes your State, County, or Country is charging at the moment).

How was your weekend? The local tribe of scrub turkeys (wild native turkeys) got into our Winter bulbs, annuals, and succulents and we’ve had to re-plant twice this weekend. Everything has been netted, wired, and generally turkey-proofed I hope – fingers crossed – otherwise they may end up trussed, stuffed, and cooked!

They are making nest mounds and even though the babies are the cutest things you will ever see running about the yard, they are super destructive when it comes to gardens. Bless their destructive little hearts. Have a fun week, t. xx

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. We are expecting more gorgeous Winter weather with cool snuggly mornings and warm sunny days. I’ll be making the hard decision of what quilt to make next LOL and stripping my daughter’s room to it’s bare bones, looking for the source of the mouldy smell. I think and hope it’s confined to the backing board of an old chest of drawers and bookcase. Fingers crossed. toni xx

I’ve had a lot of emails today asking if I’m okay. I am mostly, thanks heaps for asking. I’ve been under an enormous amount of stress over the past couple of years due to an extreme domestic violence problem with our neighbours. I won’t go into details, but their problems intrude into our lives on a daily basis. My immune system has reacted to the constant stress by attacking my body in varied and interesting ways, the latest being chronic hives. We’re being looked after well, but in the end we need to move house to escape this nightmare. xx
