Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Halfway Mark For 2021.

Surprising to think that we are already half way through 2021. Maybe I have been busier than I thought. Although not sure my stitching shows that. We are having some lovely sunny Winter days. Still very cold but great to see the sun shining. After having little opportunity to sew for a month or more, […]

December, 2020.

2020. Certainly a year that will not be forgotten in a hurry. Here in Victoria, Australia we are having a lovely December. After our total lock down we have experienced 60 days without community transmission. That has been a wonderful achievement and well worth all those stay at home days. With our new found freedom […]

Early Stockings?

Maybe early, maybe late – depending on which Christmas you are aiming for. These stockings had no deadline, so I am saying early. This is a set of four stockings made from a panel, from a long time ago. I can’t remember the manufacturer. The design was lovely and only needed some outline stitching. My […]

A Lovely Long Weekend.

Australia Day. It is a lovely time to have a long weekend and celebrate our nation. January always ends up being a very busy time in the garden. I love seeing these happy sunflowers. We have been keeping up with berry picking. And jam making. Fresh corn is being picked also. Apricots have been harvested. […]

Happy 2020.

Time to get back into sewing and blogging for 2020. Decorations are packed away for another year. And I have scared the daylights out of myself by collecting together all the projects needing a finish. I have returned to working on Dancing Chickens and Flying Pigs. I looked back at my posts and realised I […]
