Fairytale Friday


Hey lovelies, due to tech issues there won’t be a Fairytale update today. Apologies to all, there will be a double issue next instalment day. It’s the perfect opportunity to catch up! Love to all, toni xx

Fun at the Brisbane Pole…


Howdy folks, gosh it’s cold, damp, and miserable here today. So much for the ‘Sunshine State’ LoL. It’s the perfect day for hot coffee, happy quilts, and more happy quilts. It’s been a busy week again, but this time a productive one thank goodness. Before I forget the ‘Fun at the North Pole’ PDF quilt […]

Fusible techniques.


Hey y’all, I’ve uploaded a quick and dirty fusible webbing tute to the files. My dragon is giving a few people grief because of all the small pieces. I thoroughly recommend using an applique sheet when putting more complex shapes together, seriously it will revolutionise your applique life. The tutorial was mostly written to show […]

Fairytale Friday #9


It’s been another hectic week here at the Red Boots house. My hubby got his first Covid vaxx and the rest of us got our second. So yippee, we’re 4/5ths fully vaccinated now. We had a few side effects from the vaxx again – mostly joint aches, stiff necks, and foggy, headachey heads. Funny story […]

Never Smile at a Crocodile.


Hello lovelies, how are y’all this sunny Winter’s Monday? We spent a very busy weekend carving out a space in our garden where we can sit and have a cup of coffee without being seen or shouted at by our neighbour. It wasn’t easy, he has a remarkable ability to find where we are, but […]

Wonderful Wednesday.


Hey y’all, how have you all been? A big Aussie hello to all our new followers, welcome to the chaos that is my creative and domestic life haha! I have a self-depreciating sense of humour and I’m overly honest and frank about all kinds of stuff so beware LoL. Jeez guys where did May go? […]

Playing Catch Ups.


Hey y’all, how are you this sunny Autumn Saturday? It’s a glorious day today, the sky is incredibly blue and the leaves on our deciduous trees are turning orange and red. It’s very much starting to feel like Autumn here in Brisi. This week has been a non-week for sewing, I had a minor surgical […]

FairyTale Friday #6


Our froggy Prince is going a-wooing this week. I’m so sorry for lack of photos, I simply forget to take them and by the time I remember it’s either lousy light or too late! I’ve been a little preoccupied with making snakes this week. I wanted to add one to the zoo quilt. It’s nearly […]

Rainy Daze.


Hello everyone! It’s a very rainy Saturday here in Brisbane, the plants are singing happy songs and the creek is up (thankfully washing away the mozzies from last month’s downfall). We’ve had another ridiculously busy week and are all a bit sleepy after a 4.30am start this morning – eeeeek! It was our wedding anniversary […]
