I seem to be making good progress on my Into the Jungle SAL. April is now all finished and I’ve been gradually working on the header. I love stitching this so much and is probably the reason why I’m able to keep up with it. It’s so nice after a busy, stressful day to curl…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – April
I hope you’re having a lovely Easter! We’ve been busy this weekend celebrating my mum’s 70th birthday that was yesterday (blog post for that coming soon). So today as it’s cold and wet we’re snuggled up indoors watching Disney films and eating chocolates and birthday cake! I had this little bunny bag on my to…… Continue reading Happy Easter!
I’ve made a couple of these little pouches now and when I got my hands on the fabric range Autumn Rain by Dashwood Studio I instantly thought that it would make a lovely little Dresden pouch, the fussy cutting opportunities for this fabric makes it just perfect! I also think it’s a very appropriate theme…… Continue reading Sweet Autumn Rain Dresden Pouch

In a previous post I mentioned that I had signed up to two BOM clubs, today I’d like to talk about the second, the Mandolin Quilt. I tried really hard to avoid this one mainly because I had already signed up to the Blooming Blossoms Quilt and the Into the Jungle SAL but in the end resistance was futile,…… Continue reading Mandolin Quilt BOM
A few months back now I entered a sew along competition on Instagram and I thought I’d share all about it with you now (better late than never right!?) The competition was run by Dolly Henry and was to celebrate the 1st birthday of her pattern Miss Hazel Deer. It was run like a beauty…… Continue reading Miss Hazel Deer Doll aka Miss Audrey
At the start of 2018 I made the resolution to go on a “Fabric diet”, it didn’t necessarily mean I couldn’t buy any fabric but I definitely had to rein in my spending and use up my over-growing stash. I wasn’t completely unrealistic I knew there would be certain fabrics I would need to help…… Continue reading Fabric diet fail..
How cute is this little tree frog from this month’s Into the Jungle block!? I really enjoyed stitching this one so much so I pretty much did it in one day. I couldn’t pull myself away, just saying to myself 5 more minutes! It took me back to our honeymoon in Cuba, where one evening…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – March
Following on from the super cute sloth of last month’s block are 3 bright and colourful Toucans who are apparently the national birds of Belize. I’m not really a fan of green but I’m actually really liking stitching all the different leaves and trees. Just as well really considering it is jungle themed! 😆 I’m…… Continue reading Into the Jungle SAL – February
Way back in August I started making this unicorn quilt. I saw the pattern in the magazine Love Patchwork and Quilting by Sarah Ashford and as soon as I spotted it I knew I had to make it! One of the great things about having Mabel is I now have the perfect excuse to make all the…… Continue reading Pixelated Unicorn Quilt
