Sunburnt Quilts

Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery

A Quick March.

Everything seems to be moving along very quickly – including the month of March. I know we are trying to catch up on all we have missed during lock downs and so there are a lot of requests for social activities. But also I think we became very comfortable with the slow pace of lock […]

Too Much Cuteness.

I just had to finish off that koala I was knitting. But it didn’t stop with one. A bit like eating potato chips. So I ended up with three. They are lovely to make – a little bit fiddly, but worth it. The hardest part was the faces and I am sure that they will […]

Keeping Busy.

Welcome Spring. It has been lovely to get outside in the sunshine over the last week. But there has still been plenty of time to fit in some stitching, too. Three of these little friends have been put together. I tuck these away for gifts. They are an easy project to have on hand. I […]

A Prickly Handful.

As usual, I have found a distraction in between finishing quilts. Here it is in a small bowl. I went to a class at Bear Essence in Tooradin with a group of friends to take a class for this little baby hedgehog. I think the prickly fur is quite delightful. The hedgehog is made to […]

Bears, Possums And Flowers.

This really is gong to be an all sorts post for today.  It has been an enjoyably busy time time with several workshops and  little travel  squeezed in as well. We spent a few days in the Bendigo and Maldon region last week. We managed to dodge the windy days and had several delightful sunny […]

Chocolate bears.

I am again joining in with  Melody’s Teddy Bear’s Picnic today.  I am going to sit down, put my feet up and enjoy a cuppa and a biscuit while I look through the posts. I am also linking with Marcia’s Minutes For Me – because that’s exactly what I am doing.  I am having some […]

Tin Teddies.

Today has to be the most perfect day for the Teddy Bear’s picnic. It is  a mild Spring day and the sun is shining. Can’t ask for more that that! I am linking up with Melody at The House On The Side Of The Hill and joining all the teddies and their friends for the […]

A Spring Bear.

Now that Spring has arrived we are having a chance to enjoy a little sunshine. It’s a perfect day to join Melody at The House On The Side Of  The Hill for her Teddy Bear’s Picnic. We have to take the opportunity to enjoy the sun before the weather turns. I made this bear when […]

Bears In Boxes.

Another picnic day has arrived. Time to visit Melody at The House On The Side Of The Hill to join in the picnic. I was searching for a particular fabric the other day when I found this piece covered in gorgeous bears. I have used it on several occasions but still have a good metre […]

Warm And Cuddly.

Another day for a Teddy Bear’s picnic with Melody at The House On The Side Of The Hill. These two bears are made from plush felt. It’s the only way to be if you are outside today. At least the cyclamen is flowering! Keep your skis handy – the forecast is for snow quite low […]
