It is that time of year when the lovely ladies at Ava & Neve host their Liberty Scrap Challenge. I really enjoyed it last year and knew when I heard they were hosting it again I had to make time to join in. When it comes to fabric I am a bit of a hoarder and scraps…… Continue reading Liberty Scrap Challenge Sew Along
Do you remember the Bluebirds on Roses Cushion I made a couple of weeks back? You know the one destined for Mabel’s room… well it is still sat in our lounge and I must admit to being rather fond of it! In my defense it is rather on the large size for a little girl’s…… Continue reading Once Upon a Rhyme Cushion
I read somewhere that it’s not healthy to apologise if you’ve not posted or blogged in a while, and I can see why they would say that, after all it’s not good to put unnecessary pressure on yourself and blogging should be a joy not a chore! However I am sorry, it’s not because I…… Continue reading Blogging block… So a little round-up instead!
You may remember a couple of weeks ago I shared with you some economy blocks I had been working on. It was one of those projects I started with no end product in mind, I was just having fun with it. I knew I wanted a quick project and so a quilt was out of…… Continue reading Bluebirds on Roses Economy Block Cushion
I’m sorry I’ve been absent from the blog recently. With the Easter holidays and Mabel being off the last 3 weeks from Pre-school it inevitably lead to me falling behind on things like the blog! It doesn’t mean that I haven’t been sewing though. So I thought I’d do a quick catch up post with…… Continue reading Lets Catch Up!

We’ve been enjoying some lovely weather and it really does make a difference to the mood when there is some sunshine to enjoy. Looking over all my makes from March…… Continue reading March Round-up
There are a couple of fun “Sew-Alongs” I am taking part in at the moment. The first one is the #sunnylogcabinsal. I haven’t made a log cabin log in so long and when I kept seeing pretty little blocks popping up in my feed I knew I had to stop everything and join in too!…… Continue reading Sewing along!
I have been having great fun testing Lou Orth’s new pattern the Square Love Quilt. This is a perfect pattern for some fussy cutting and highlighting your favourite fabrics. Unusually for me it didn’t actually take me that long to decide on my fabrics. I started by picking what fabric I wanted to feature and…… Continue reading Square Love Quilt
I have fallen in love hard with the new fabric line by Heather Ross called Trixie! I mean what is not to like? You have cute little mice, pretty florals and sweet little strawberries! Just perfect! I am normally quite hesitant to cut into fabric I love, I haven’t dared to cut into my Bluebirds…… Continue reading Trixie Fabric
I recently had the pleasure of testing Lou Orth’s new pattern the Flourish Sewing Set. This handy little set includes a needlebook, a thread catcher and a pincushion. The pattern comes with the option to make it with a mini patchwork block or without. The mini block is a great opportunity for some tiny fussy cutting…… Continue reading Flourish Sewing Set
