Funny Sunday

Howdy folks, how are you all this funny, sunny Sunday? The news isn’t good is it. Life is getting a little scary for us all.

This morning I’ve been cleaning up the mess in the storage room. Ughhh, it’s disgustingly dusty from the dust storms and fires at the beginning of the year. There are also far too many cobwebs under there. We know there is a giant Huntsman spider living in there and I keep expecting it to jump (they jump!) out at me.

I’ve been trying to avoid doing it (cleaning) but I’ve lost a quilt top. I can’t find it anywhere and I’m starting to think it may have been binned by mistake. It got packed away when we had the house on the market and it’s not where it should be. Damn and blast! as my Grandma used to say.


I’ve also been playing with some scrappy cats. I don’t know where this will lead, I’m not sure I like it anymore. It may end up in my scrap bin, who knows. Maybe it’s the colours that are turning me off – I think if I make all the cats ‘real’ colours it might come together. Who am I to argue with the way my brain works LoL.


The next instalment of the Paper Dolls Sew-Along will be released this coming Friday. This week will also be a giveaway week thanks to the lovely people at Thermoweb. I’ll have some HeatnBond, patterns, earrings (made just for you) etc. to giveaway. More details to come!


My grumbling tummy is telling me that lunchtime was an hour ago so I’d better go and eat. Take care everyone, wash those hands, stay safe, much love to all, toni xx

Reminder! there are only a few weeks left to download the free This Little Piggy BOM from last year. It will revert to being a paid pattern from the 30th April.


Back on Deck

Hello lovely quilters, how has your week been?

We’re back on deck, off the couch, and almost ready to get back to work. Hubby’s surgery went well and the virus I picked up from the hospital is finally on the wane.

In between it all I managed to get my fabric bins sorted. They were in a horrendous mess. Remember my thread box? Well the fabric wasn’t much better. Twisted and tangled and quite the dog’s breakfast. It feels wonderful to have it sorted into colours and projects – ready to slice, dice, and sew.

The paper dolls BOM is taking shape. I have a bit of catching up to do, but it will be ready to go late February. I’ll set up a page for it shortly.

Later this week we will be releasing the second quilt in the Speedy Racers series. If you have the Happy Quilts book you will be able to adapt the pattern (in the book) to look similar to this.

Remember to download the “This Little Piggy” (free BOM) pattern before the end of April. It will revert to being a paid pattern on the 1st Maya girl’s got to make fabric money :o)

Well that’s it from me today, take care lovelies and be kind to each other. Happy quilting, toni xx

The gnome quilt is almost done. A few more tweaks and it will be ready for photographing etc. Ughhh, photographs are the worst part of the whole pattern writing job description. It makes me sooo frustrated and cranky LoL.

I hope you have a lovely weekend everyone. We’re hoping for some rain tonight and tomorrow. It will be a great relief to fill the water tanks and have the gardens and surrounding bushland watered. It’s been so very dry (drought) this year (or two). Take care, toni xx
