Sunny Saturdays.


Hello lovelies, I hope today sees you all happy and well. I’ve been getting ready for the launch of our new Fairy Tale Sew-Along (which should go live late February). I’ve also consolidated last year’s Paper Doll Sew-Along instructions and templates into one downloadable pattern which you can find on the Free Projects page. You […]

A Paper Doll New Year


Hello lovely quilters and welcome to the start of a new week! I have a couple of quick announcements then I will disappear back into lockdown (winky face). First up, the Paper Dolls Sew-Along digital pattern will remain free for at least the first half of 2021. Everyone is doing it tough and I thought […]

Hello lovelies!


Hello lovelies, how have you all been? 2021 has been a wild ride so far hasn’t it! We’re back in an unexpected hard lockdown as of tonight. Everyone seemed to go a little crazy today; the supermarkets are empty of toilet paper again, there were accidents everywhere, and I’ve already been shouted at by the […]

Happy New Year!


Welcome 2021! It’s been a very difficult and challenging time for us all this year so let’s raise a glass in toast to 2021. May we enter the new year with hope and kindness in our hearts. I’ve promised myself that I will take the new year one day at a time and always turn […]

Aussie Pins


Edit: I’ve uploaded the pins to Etsy, they are ACRYLIC not enamel. I’m not sure whether I’ll get them made up in enamel in the future. There are only 20 of each because they are a trial product. They are nice and light and are perfect for kids to pin to their pencil cases and […]

Friday Stuff.


Hi lovelies, how has your week been? It’s been a fairly unproductive week for Red Boots, but I’ve had some much needed personal down time and I’m starting to feel a whole lot better. Our new business cards arrived this week and they look great. I’ve decided to also use them as backing cards for […]

Going Grizzly.


Happy Monday lovelies! I made great progress on the pugs this weekend, I should be finished the top by the end of the week. Then I’m planning on tackling the giraffe quilt. We are still without an internet connection and I’m desperately saving what little is left of our data allowance on my cell phone. […]

Scrappy Bunnies.


I love how you can take a small handful of scraps, add a little time and love, and end up with this. How cute is she!? This is the old Scrappy Bunnies pattern that I’m updating. The pattern is the same, I’m just updating the fabrics and photos. I added a pair of glasses to […]

Space Giraffe


Hi guys, another week has flown by and I’m still trying to get motivated. I’m working, but it’s coming in fits and starts. Everything is fine and I’ll be back on track soon; all of those 2am finishes in December took their toll and I’m not quite back on top of things yet. I have […]

Soft Kitty.


Why is it that when I say I’m taking time off, and I’m really feeling like death today, do I suddenly have the urge to get stuff done? It’s a mystery to me. I thought I’d do some more re-binding today. Easy hand-work while my butt is expanding on the couch. Spud thought otherwise; I […]
