It’s that time again…

… A Lovely Year of Finishes. Really.. how can it be February already??!

A Lovely Year of Finishes

I’m loving minis at the moment but I also have a few things I need to finish.


This being one of them. *Aim* a cute concealed zipper tote bag which is going to be a secret gift for a friend.

I also have a couple more bags to finish so if I get this one done.. it might spur me on to the others!

What is everyone else working on?



I actually finished something….

And quick too! Started mid afternoon Thursday and stitched last bit of the binding early Friday morning.

P1100238Isn’t it great? A mini quilt present for a friend. The cat block pattern is from 500 quilt blocks (more info on this book over at VeryKerryBerry’s blog here)

What’s everyone up to this weekend?


Fabric.. Quilt Festival and Craft Club

Finally a new post…

Work, study and a nasty virus has taken me up the past month or so but today had some time out to go to the Exeter Quilt Festival. More photos on that to come once I figure out how to get the photos out of my phone.. Meanwhile there’s a cutesy one on my instagram page here.

I was quite good and restrained myself.. trying to save for a) Sissix Big Shot and b) another sewing machine. These are what I picked up today…


The owl is actually a large panel full of owls and sweet little birdies- am thinking quilt or for a child sized bed 🙂 The ones on the left are for meeee and hopefully be bags or something soon… I had to go back for the others so cute and perfect for little boys.

Came home to a parcel and it’s the new Craft Club from Seamstar- am really pleased with it. Go check it out here if you fancy trying it.
