Handmade By Emily – #aussiekonaclub

When Emily from Handmade By Emily contacted me and asked if I would be interested in curating a bundle of Kona for her #aussiekonaclub, it didn’t take me long to answer.  It was a resounding YES!  The next part took a little longer though.  With a million  too many  LOTS of colours in the Robert Kaufman Kona range, I set up camp and began my search.  The five brilliant colours I decided on are literally my favourites in terms of what I am … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash – Tokyo Part Two

Now, where were we?  Oh, that’s right – the fabric!   In total, I returned to Melbourne with 14 kilos of fabric.  Which is quite considerable!  But what I can tell you is this – I was actually very picky about my purchases!  I really thought about the fabric I chose, basically because I knew I’d have to get it home and also be able to fit it in my house.  I’m pleased to say I am very happy with each and every … Continue Reading »

#f*cktober – A Cushion For Eden

**Potty Mouth Alert** A couple of weeks ago, Beth from Babymac wrote a beautiful blog post for her friend Eden.  Eden and Beth are REAL life friends – meeting through their blogging world, but becoming face to face friends instantly.  I don’t know either of them in real life, but feel like I’ve gotten to know them somewhat through years of reading their blogs.  Especially Eden’s.  Eden writes like there is no tomorrow.  Sometimes, literally.  I have commented on her blog hundreds of … Continue Reading »

Sunday Stash – The Magazine Edition

A few years back, a friend’s Mum de-stashed a huge amount of sewing goods.  Part of that stash was a big old pile of quilting magazines.  At the time, I was not a quilter, so had absolutely no use whatsoever for them!  A lady from an online sewing group came past and picked them all up happily.  Then, once she found out I was quilting, she dropped a bunch back in to me….. Where they have happily sat atop my shelves in my … Continue Reading »

Coloured Happy – Wavelength Finish

You know when you see a quilt somewhere on social media and you think “I have to make that”?  Well, that happened when I first saw Lee’s Wavelength quilt – her latest Freshly Pieced pattern.  I bought it on the spot and then pondered how I would make it mine?  The answer came a few days later when a new parcel of acquired fabrics arrived on my doorstep!  A divine little fat 1/8th’s bundle of V and Co’s Color Me Happy would do … Continue Reading »
