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.

Fabric – 2020 Sew-along

Hey lovelies, some of you have asked about fabric requirements for the new Paper Dolls sew-along. I don’t have a full requirements list as yet however you will need (35) pieces of fabric measuring at least 8in x 12in. You can use the photo below as a guide.

A full requirements list will be provided on release of the sew-along. This is a guide only for those of you who want to make a start collecting fabrics. You will also need an assortment of solid skin-toned fabrics.

You will notice that I haven’t gone with the original design. It was becoming too complex and bulky. I feel that this new version will not only be easier for the beginners who follow along but a more fun quilt in the long run.
