Christmas Gift Sewing.

Just trying to make a few extra gifts for Christmas. This is the start of a table runner or two from a pattern by Disa Designs. Still a lot of work to be done. I have also tried to make a Bon Bon from a Hatched and Patched pattern. I think I still need to […]

Silver Service.

That would be lovely. Silver service in an up-market restaurant! Colourful Friday this week is silver. The hardest part of this post was choosing what to include and making a limit. Join the fun by visiting Bev at Kainga Happenings to see what everyone is up to. A big thank you to Bev for being […]

There Can Never Be Too Many Santas!

It’s a month out from Christmas and I am struggling to make myself wait to put up decorations. I will have to make do with getting a few quilts out in preparation. This wall hanging was a Debbie Mumm panel. I did a small amount of piecing, but the main work was  embellishing the blocks. […]

Christmas Ornament.

I do love Marg Low‘s designs and have quite a few of her patterns. I especially like the ones she combines with the cut outs and buttons from Barb ( Theodora Cleave Designs). This particular one is named Simple Pleasures. They are so easy to make and have good instructions.  I have changed this one […]

A Little Star.

Time to get started on making a few decorations and gifts. This little star is so simple.  Two pieces of fabric cut as pentagons, sewn RST and then turned right sides out. A quick top stitch around the outside and then corners folded in and held in place with a few invisible stitches. I need […]

How Now Brown Cow?

Where on earth did that saying come from? This week’s colour for Colourful Friday is brown. Visit Bev at Kainga Happenings to check out all the posts for this week. Hope there’s loads of chocolate!!! I found this week hard because I had too much brown to choose from – furniture, hard wood floors, toys, […]

Angels, Festivals and Thanks.

I have been sorting through a few quilts and getting things ready for Christmas decorating. I love it when you rediscover something. This often happens with Christmas items because they are packed away for most of the year. Here is my quilt, Angels in the Garden. It is from Meme’s Quilts. I really enjoyed the […]

I love all things Christmas so am really looking forward to seeing all the quilts. My quilt is from a design by Keryn […]

Colourful Lavender Friday.

Lovely lavender today. This week Bev at Kainga Happenings is hosting Colourful Fridays,  so check out her post for all the wonderful pictures. When Bev suggested lavender I instantly thought of the lavender sachets that our children always brought home from the Mothers’ Day stall at school. Always a good memory. Now there are lavender […]

A Star Mistake!

A while back I mentioned that I needed to make quite a few more red and white stars for an internal border on a quilt. I started working on a few last week and managed to make some progress with ten more.  After I had pressed them I went to put them with the other […]
