Hello Friday.


Gosh what a week it’s been. It is Friday isn’t it? I’ve been caught out once already this week, thinking Thursday was Wednesday LOL. First up I wanted to say thank you again for your empathy and kindness. I was blown away by your emails of support. I haven’t caught up with everybody yet, but […]

I’ve also put the Reindeer Games quilt on special.Tutti Fruity pandas are on my work table, amongst other things this week. I found […]

Dog vs. Dog


Hey guys, I’ve had an awful lot of requests for templates for different dogs breeds. How would it be if I made a template pack to go with the Pug’s Life / Kennel Club quilt patterns? You could insert your preferred dog breed without me having to make a new quilt each time. xx

Unpick that border!

However it meant that my measurements were now completely out of whack. I spent last night with a calculator, a pen, and a ream of paper trying […]

A Pug’s Life
