Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

Merry December.

It has been a hectic time, but I am determined to do at least one December post! Lots of shopping has happened, including these gorgeous biscuit tins. Love the way the bauble has been incorporated into the tin. And, yes, it spins! The colour and the design on the tin could have easily fitted into […]

Stitching For Christmas.

It seems to be so far away, but I know from past experience that Christmas creeps up really quickly. I am trying to get ahead, but I know it will still be a mad rush in the end. I started with one of these decorations from a Bareroots pattern, Everything Nice Christmas Ornaments. And then […]

August In Felt.

A few little bits and pieces have been finished. And all have been worked in felt. I made a box/cube using four Sue Spargo designs. Each of the designs was stitched onto a felt square. At first I was a bit stumped as to how to use the pieces. I think they were originally in […]

Little Things Grow.

I am still working on lots of little things and achieving some finishes. My Party Penguin is complete and now in its hoop ready to hang. This is a design from Bustle And Sew. Next in line were a few felt decorations from The Wooly Thread Co. I think I purchased one of the patterns […]

Easter, Yay!

We are having a gorgeous Easter long weekend with beautiful sunny days. Even the resident magpie family agree and have been out and about checking out the Autumn foliage. Easter decorating has been happening and there are a couple of new additions. A little crochet bunny. And a new hoop embroidery. This is a Kathy […]

Happy January 2022.

January is such a great time to be outdoors, but it does mean I forget to blog. Our weather has been mild so far with only a few really hot days, so the garden often calls. But, I have been caught up at times watching the cricket, and now the Australia Open, so some stitching […]

Bringing 2021 To A Close.

The last day of the year crept up a lot quicker than I had expected. But here it is. So before the New Year starts I managed to finish a couple of Christmas projects. These are part of a series of wool stockings designed by Michelle L Palmer. Michelle kindly shares these designs freely each […]

A Week To Go.

One week until Christmas day. And another year nearly behind us. Wow! Lots of Christmas sewing has been happening, but I have also managed to finish my quilt top for Over The Hill by Wendy Williams. This was the last block. When it was joined to the others in the row, there were a few […]

Nearly Missed November!

November has been a very busy time here. The weather has made sure we are very busy in the garden. The plants are enjoying the Spring rain and sunshine, and the weeds are flourishing!!! Lots of strawberries have been picked and turned into jam. And I think the grass grows behind us as soon as […]

A Bit Of A Yarn.

Plenty of yarn being used in these projects. It’s a bit of a mixed bag. I have been making a few bits and pieces for gifts and have accumulated a little collection. Most will be baby gifts. I am sure most of you have seen the octopus toy with the curly tentacles that bubs love […]
