and then.......

I picked up a jelly roll of modas new fabric, Etchings, thought about it for a week of what I really wanted to make, Im really into Union Jacks at the moment so I have made up these blocks this arvo, tonite Ill think about what Ill do between them to make them into a quilt for my lounge room. Once again I must sing the praises to the humble glue stick, so much better than pins when sewing something like these strips, holds them in place perfectly. Thankyou

A great weekend

what a great day, actually feel like I achieved something, that could be because I stayed off the comp til Finished off this table runner, the design is a One Day in May but I wasnt clever enough to trapunto it like Melissa Grant so I stitched it instead, but perfect for the coffee table

Peony Runner

One Day in May Creations, Peony Cushion was in a recent issue of Homespun magazine. Instead of making a cushion I thought it would make a nice runner for the blanket box in my bedroom. I love it!! Almost finished another Christmas runner too, backing and binding to go. (my least favourite

Finally have my Mojo back...

I actually sewed today, it has been a while I must admit. I made this Amy Butler skirt from French General fabric and I love how it turned out...and NO my waist is not that small, its an Aline skirt but Ive pegged the back for the photo. I also finished the crazy quilting on 6 quilt blocks from a BOM I started 2 years ago, the idea of a BOM is to make as you go...Not me, I let them sit them and then do them after a couple of Thats how the candlewick one was born. I also spent a nice day painting some stuffed dolls I had, been awhile since I made a doll - well I havent really made doll, dolls today, but alot of other things, including a couple of crows and a few chickens - Ill share some pics when Im done. Hope you all had a good weekend xx

Last One, another Sweet Meadows Farm Creation

This little Raggedy is a cutie, perfect for my bedroom

To Face or Not to Face

From a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern I just finished this little gal. None of my other prairie dolls have faces but with this one I have the option of pencilling one in. Think Ive decided I dont want to ruin it so faceless it is. I love Prairie Girls...

Finally made a doll (or 4)

Been awhile but I finally made some dolls. I love how these guys turned out. Probably the first and only time Ill make this pattern as they were alot of work but I love that they stand up, theyre over 28" high and have "real" shoes on. Theyre perfect for my loungeroom
