Friday Faves!

Hey lovely quilters, happy Friday to you all! How has your week been? Mine has flown by again, leaving me wishing everything would slow down a little. I’m dreaming of beach holidays, warm sunshine, sandy feet, and icy cold pina coladas!

To celebrate Summer in the Northern Hemisphere our Friday Favourites are the Fishy Fishy Fishy, Little Mermaids, Spring Fling, and Denim & Daisies patterns. We’ve also taken 20% off our Little Mermaid pins.

You can find the patterns and pins in our Etsy store and our independent web-store. The Denim & Daisies quilt pattern is a foundation pieced pattern.

I’m devastated to report that my brain still isn’t functioning as it should. Trauma’s a b*tch. The desire to work is there, I’m designing like crazy and have several dozen projects in the queue, but I can’t untangle my brain enough to convert them to fabric. The weirdest part is I have total clarity when it comes to writing the patterns and doing the math. Go figure.

Self-portrait!

I’m getting help for my brain tangle, I’ll be back to being me soon I hope. In the meantime a huge sincere thanks to everyone for your kindness.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic weekend, toni xx

Stuff.

Back before I had to make a living from this gig, I experimented a lot and made some interesting stuff. I never took a photo of this finished quilt but it was made entirely of jeans pockets and scrap quilting cotton. I wonder where it ended up. I must have given it away. I can remember it being heavy! I had an enormous amount of fun blanket stitching around the pockets.

I had a thing for recycling denim, I still do, and I made these guys from old jeans. I’ve decided to resurrect the pattern because they are just so darn cute. Ragnar the Reindeer and Maurice the Moose.

And while I was meandering down memory lane, I found these guys in my scrap bin. They are little desk pals (or pin cushions). I made dogs and cats too. I’ll update the pattern tomorrow with an added base for stability.

I hope you had a lovely Monday. It was sweltering hot here. Spring didn’t last long and we’ve leapt straight into Summer. Sleep tight lovelies, toni xx
