A Lizzy House Charmer

I have a confession to make – last month, I decided it was time for another charm swap, but I was incredibly time and effort poor, so I didn’t advertise it widely.   In fact, I only threw it open to members of my charm swap FB group.  Sometimes, you just gotta do what you gotta do – and this was the easiest and most time efficient way for me to go.  So – with that – I’ll apologise to those of you … Continue Reading »

Tula Grande

It’s taken a little time to get this baby finished, but she was a grande old dame, who deserved some grand treatment!  There was never any doubt that someone else had to quilt her, because her stature was a little more than mine could handle!  So, a week ago, I picked her up and endeavoured to get her finished.  And here she is…….in all her glory…… Isn’t she lovely?  Photographing her proved a little difficult also, but I took the small window of … Continue Reading »

Tula Pink Charm-Along – WINNERS!

WOW!  That’s basically all I can say!  I’m so impressed by ALL of the projects our charm-alongers have made with their Tula Pink goodies!  Each and every one of them is so totally different and unique, and it makes me want to start a million new quilts!

Sunday Stash – A Charm Square Invasion!

This week’s Sunday Stash is brought to you by an abundance of 5″ squares!  They’ve taken over my house, but I’m not complaining….

LOOK!!!!!  So very special.  And I have no idea what they will be used for, but I kind of feel silly for not cutting an extra … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash – Fabric Appreciation

I seemingly achieved quite a lot on my few days off work last week.  And amongst the sewing, I also managed a little fabric appreciation whilst I was at it! Andi from my MQG is running a little Liberty charm swap.  So in the spirit of joining in, I pulled out my considerably small stash of Liberty, and got to cutting.  I do have 14 prints, but three of them are fat 1/8’s already partially used, so I only cut charms from 11 … Continue Reading »
