Saturday Check-In.


Hello lovely people, I wanted to check in and see how you were all coping with the news today. Are you okay? Please reach out and let’s talk to each other and get through this.

I’m struggling a little with my anxiety, which is in hyperdrive right now. In between panic attacks I’m dumpster diving into my scrap bins. The plan is to hunker down as best I can and sew myself through this thing. Take care okay, we’ve got this. Much love, toni xx

Bears, Daisies & Nine-Patch Blocks

I’m having a late night sewing session. Warm colours, fun shapes, and a toddy for the body – perfect!

My sweet Janome has sat idle for so long, she spluttered a little before she found her groove. To be honest I spluttered a little too.

I’ll need a quick trip to Peppermint Stitches tomorrow to buy some fabric. Why is it that the fabric you decide will anchor your project is the piece you have least of?

I hope Stacy and the crew have the fabric I’m looking for otherwise I’m going to have to do a LOT of unpicking! Wish me luck and have a great weekend, toni xx

On the homeward stretch.

Today I forgot everything I ever learned about math and sewing. I really don’t know where I left my brain this morning but it wasn’t in my head. I sewed things upside down, wrong way up, and nothing, nothing measured what it should LOL. I finally got my act into gear at 11.30pm tonight! That last border fit perfectly *yippee*.
