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. We can top up, but it’s hellishly expensive to do so.


Eeek! I just did some math. We pay $80 for 1000GB on our home plan, but it costs $10 for 1GB on the mobile phone. It would cost $10,000 to have the same amount of access on our mobile. Dear God, surely I’m mistaken!

Time to go all Camp Grizzly on their butts!

Don’t forget that our weekend specials end today. ‘Space Quest‘ is up for $5 and ‘Our House‘ is $4 (PDF only). You have a few hours to grab a copy at these cheap-as-chips prices!

Have a fun day everyone! toni xx

The Twilight Zone.

Hi y’all, we’re still without an internet service, however $4 Friday will be on tomorrow. We’ll be doing our February Therm O Web giveaway draw in a few days time too. I’m using my mobile to log in, but it’s not great, so please be patient. If you need to contact me for something, please send an email to redbootquilts@bigpond.com It’s easier to access messages that way and it doesn’t use too much of our meagre mobile data allowance.

Our service provider can’t tell us when we’ll be reconnected, they are being quite shifty about the whole thing grrr! If anyone knows a Telstra executive who I can kick up the butt about it, let me know LOL.

Take care, I’ll log in tomorrow and upload the $4 Friday deals. toni xx


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 this bunny as an experiment and I love how she turned out. I’ll let you know when the updated pattern is ready – probs tomorrow.

IMG_1647I’ve also been working on simplifying the admin. side of the business (which takes up a good 70% of my time) so I can spend more time sewing and creating. One of the things decided on is $4 Friday. In 2018 “Four Dollar Friday” will be held every second week to coincide with our newsletter release.

Have a lovely week everyone, I’m determined to finish a quilt this week! toni xx

January + New Monthly Giveaway

Hello lovelies, can you believe it’s the end of January already? I had so much planned for this month and then the January blahs took over.

I’ve been (slowly) working on a space quilt, a pug quilt, a giraffe quilt, an update to the Honeybee Bears quilt, and a new ABC quilt. I’m hoping that I have all five finished before the end of February.

As you might remember, last year we closed our Birthday Club due to internet (ro)bots. This year we have decided to give our monthly giveaways another chance and do them differently. There are two ways you can enter the prize draw.

Firstly you can become a member of The Red Boots Gang which is our Facebook Group. This is a closed group where you can chat, ask questions, and generally have a bit of fun.
Please pop on over, join up, and say hi!

As a member you will be automatically entered in our monthly giveaways. I’ll draw a winner from the member’s list on the last day of every month and notify them via messaging.

The second way to win is to subscribe to our newsletter. We are planning on sending (2) newsletters a month in 2018 so your inbox won’t be spammed. I’ll draw a winner from the subscriber’s list on the last day of every month and notify them via email.

This month’s prize pack consists of (1) 1.25 yard pack of HeatnBond Lite plus (1) pack of Pressing Sheets. One pack will be given away to each group. Good Luck!

Thermoweb Giveaway

I know that some of you must be wondering why I’ve haven’t included our standard Facebook page, blog, and Instagram accounts in the giveaway draws. The answer is very simple, it’s extremely time consuming and confusing to run the giveaways across so many platforms and I can’t afford a prize (or the postage) for each platform. By consolidating the entry points to two platforms so much of my time is freed for sewing and you receive a better quality prize pack.

Why do I have so many social media accounts? Well it’s not by choice LOL, it’s a requirement of working in this business. Did you know that I have to report my social media numbers to the businesses/publishers I work with. It’s a vital and compulsory part of my work. It does however mean I can’t please everybody despite wanting to, I hope you all understand.

I hope your January hasn’t been too hot, too cold, or too full of the blahs. toni xx
