A pig in mud.

Well hey everyone, how has your week been? Mine has been one great big jumble of weird work schedules, uni (college) exams, end of semester parties, visitors from the US, and the horrors of the house being re-wired. Add nutty neighbours to the list and you get the gist. I sat down to have lunch today and woke up two hours later with my sandwich stuck to my shirt LoL. I worked like crazy today to get the final instalment of the This Little Piggy quilt done only to realise… Read more A pig in mud.

It’s November!

Hello lovelies, it’s the 1st of November and I am, as ever, stunned at how fast the year is flying by. I thought I’d pop in and let you know where I’m at right now. I’m almost finished the pattern for the gnome quilt. I was hoping it get it listed this weekend but it depends on photos (and it’s raining). I’ll let you know as soon as I’m done. I’ve spent most of this year working with Terri, an editor, who is helping me upgrade the patterns with the… Read more It’s November!

Scrapelicious failure?

The feeling you get when the scrappy, happy border you’ve been planning looks great in real life but absolutely garbage in the photos. I want this quilt to be so happy it makes your face hurt from smiling. I’ll add the third row/border and see what happens but I think I may have a date with a unpicker! In the words of my Grandmother… damn and blast! xx

Hey y’all, guess what? it’s Friday and it’s time for the next instalment in our This Little Piggy block-of-the-month! You can find all of the blocks, including Block #9 here. Can you believe that we only have one month to go and then we’re finished our little piggy adventure? I hope you’ve enjoyed stitching along with me.

To celebrate my birthday all PDF patterns are… Read more This Little Piggy Block #9

The Gnomes in My Garden

Hello happy quilters, how has your week been? We’ve had some lovely Spring weather here in Brisbane and we even had our first storm of the season; it was absolutely fantastic to hear the rain on the roof. The warm weather has brought the wildlife out of hibernation. There are loads of butterflies, native bees, and lizards. Our nutty neighbour has been chasing snakes all week, so I suppose they are awake too LoL. Dave the scrub turkey is still tending to, and increasing the size of his nest; we… Read more The Gnomes in My Garden

Monster Mash

Fairies in my Garden.

Hi lovely people, there are fairy princesses on my worktable tonight. I’ve been talked into making a new quilt, based on the original Flower Fairies pattern. The new one will be easier to fuse, as there won’t be so many overlapping pieces. I’ve doubled up the face fabric so the wings and hair don’t show through when it’s fused – when using this method always use featherlite or lite fusible webbing otherwise you’ll end up with a stiff applique shape. Okay, back to work. I’ve got five quilts on the… Read more Fairies in my Garden.
