A Bag From Numbers – Tutorial (of sorts!)

Whilst I was in Queensland last month, I had to pleasure of catching up with my Tokyo BFF, and her lovely family.  Lucky for me, her gorgeous little girl also just happens to be my God Daughter!  Anyway, at the end of our weekend, after she had handed over the MOTHER LOAD of fabric, she got out her notepad and pen and wrote a little list of things her little boy required for Kindergarten. It’s been living in my handbag pocket, and survived … Continue Reading »

A Chicken Pox Survival Guide – According to Me

Easter Saturday Experiment – Fat 1/4 Rag Quilt!

Good afternoon!  I have had a pile of half yards sitting in my shelf for quite some time now – all in blacks.  And have wondered what I would do with them?  Well, one of my besties is turning the big 40 tomorrow (we share a birthday) and her big bash is in a few weeks up in the country.  And black is her colour.  Literally.  She has amazing style – both in clothing and home, so I wanted to make her something … Continue Reading »
