A Birthday Keepsake

Cushions seem to be my “thing” in recent times!  And that’s ok!  I adore making quilted cushions, and love that my customers want me to make them!  One such customer messaged me Thursday night and put in a request for TWO!  This is the first….. The only specifications I had were: Girly fabric and personalised with name and birth date.  Easy!  I have had this Sarah Jane fabric sitting on my shelf awaiting the perfect project.  I’ve cut out 6.5″ squares, and knew … Continue Reading »

T.G.I.F.F. – Wonky Star Cot Quilt

The Purple, Silver and Green quilt has been finished!  I shared with you on Wednesday that I had a few concerns about this one, but all concerns were squashed as this beauty came together.  I saw the intended recipient yesterday – who is due to give birth any day now – so it gave me a push (pardon the pun!) to finish it up.  I completed the quilt top yesterday, and managed to baste, quilt and bind it today!  Finishing up at 5pm…….right … Continue Reading »

W.I.P. Wednesday – Green, Purple and Silver

This W.I.P. Wednesday is brought to you by the colours Green, Purple and Silver!  It’s also accompanied by some Doubt, Anxiety and a sprinkling of Trust.  I’ve thrown in some hope and Faith for good measure! Doubt that the three colours would go together well.  Anxiety over my choice of design.  Trusting my instincts would be correct.  Hoping that when I’ve finished all the blocks it will look amazing, and faith that the recipient will love it! So far……so good! I’m linking up … Continue Reading »

Fresh Sewing Day – July Round Up!

It would be fair to say that I’ve had a pretty big month!  In fact, it’s the biggest July I have EVER had in my life!  Apart from all the interesting side stories happening, I managed to sew up an absolute storm hurricane.  It truly is amazing how much you can get done when you put your mind to it AND desperately use sewing as therapy!  Here’s a little old round up for you…… Clockwise from top left: My first Fat Quarter Shop … Continue Reading »

W.I.P. Wednesday – A Little Circa Fun

It’s not often that I buy fabric because I think it will be popular – rather than me really loving it.  But that’s exactly what I did when I chose to add some Circa to my last fabric order.  I must say – I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw it!  It is probably the girliest fabric I’ve ever had!  And yes – NOW I love it! Anyway, after it started speaking to me, I thought I best listen and got to … Continue Reading »

A 9 Patch Mash Up!

Yesterday after work, I got cracking on a cushion cover that is being gifted to a good friend of mine.  She’s a shabby chic kind of gal, and has ordered quite a few dresses for her nieces from me, so I knew that she loved the Flora range of fabrics.  I whipped out the range and chose nine prints.  I had planned to make a disappearing nine patch, (You can see my first attempts at these HERE) but not long in to sewing, … Continue Reading »
