Paper Dolls…

Hey everyone, how has your week been? It’s back to work for us, the Christmas break being over all too soon.

First up, I’ve moved the donation links for the Aussie Fires to their own page. You can find the links by navigating the menu at the top of the page. The header is “Aussie Fires”. If you have a link you’d like me to add please message me. Links to craft/quilting groups are welcome.

I’ve been working hard to get our new Paper Dolls BoM ready. I’m hoping for a start date some time mid-late February. More details to come. Enjoy your week! toni xx

Neat as a button.

Remember yesterday how I suggested you fuse a strip of interfacing to the opening of your soft toys? This is how neat it stays when you do. No fraying!

Double tip – don’t fuse it too close to the edge of the opening, leave a hair’s breadth between the edge of the interfacing and the edge of the fabric so your needle will go through the fabric with ease. xx

Pink Piggy Farm

Hiya lovelies, the next instalment of our Thermoweb This Little Piggy BOM is ready for release tomorrow. Have you got your pink fabrics and HeatnBond ready?

Pink Piggy Farm is on it’s way too. I made this one up ages ago and haven’t got around to releasing it as a full pattern. It should be ready tomorrow too. xx

May the Fourth be With You.

May the Fourth be with you! Happy Star Wars Day everyone.

The Space Quest and Isaac the Robot patterns are on sale today to celebrate. 40% off the PDF’s and 20% off the printed patterns. You can find them in our Etsy store and our Webstore. xx

Hellooo!

Hello dear people, did you have a lovely Easter break? We used our time off to get a lot of small jobs done around the house.

After 20 years we finally have a fly screen on our laundry window – not to keep the flies out but to keep the snakes out!

We took some time off work and ate fish and chips at the beach and at the dam. I swear Australian seagulls can smell cholesterol from miles around. It was like a scene from ‘The Birds’… they were on the roof of the car and trying to get in the windows.

I had a play with a bunch of Therm-O-Web’s Deco Foil. I’m seriously impressed with this product. All it took was a $20 laminator to get started.

My fabric arrived for my Amish half-square triangle quilt and my 100 blocks quilt.

Our Therm-O-Web goodies arrived for our Little Piggy BOM giveaways. There are some seriously amazing products in this not-so-little bundle of goodness. Remember to enter our giveaway this month to partake in Therm-O-Web’s generosity!

Kate made some socks (not yet blocked) and I tried to remember how to do macrame.

It rained a lot and our succulents are finally starting to look healthy again (after struggling through a particularly dry but humid Summer).

I even managed to sneak in a nap or two.

I’ve uploaded the Harry & Miss Kitty soft toy pattern, the Harry and the Hound Dogs quilt pattern, and the My Family pattern to the website and Etsy. If you own the Happy Quilts book you won’t need the (2) Hound Dogs patterns.

Oh and guess what!? After 10 years of sewing at the dining room table I’m getting my own little sewing nook. No more sewing around people, their homework, food, coffee, cake, cats, and newspapers. Yippee!!!

Four Dollar Friday will be back next week as will I. Take care lovelies, toni xx
