Wouldn't it be fab to go? Toby says, sure, no problem, as long as he can go climbing in the Dolomites. Maybe if we win the lottery... Continue reading

Yesterday was work, work, work. Tomorrow will be work, work, work. So I thought it was fair enough to squeeze in a sewing day today. I think this may be my quickest ever quilt top. I started the piecing last... Continue reading

Well, it's taken some time, but we are finally into our new place and feeling reasonably settled. I managed very little sewing in the 6 weeks we were staying with relatives. Unsurprising really, considering that all fabric was packed in... Continue reading

Moving takes ages doesn't it? I feel like I've spent weeks either packing or unpacking boxes, in between numerous visits to the tip. We are currently between houses, so the packing and unpacking hasn't finished yet, but things have calmed... Continue reading

How nice was the weekend? It was here at least, hope everyone else had some sunshine too. We got out and about and enjoyed the sun but I also put aside plenty of time to catch up with sewing. I... Continue reading

Time is flying by these days. Changes are afoot at work and we've just thrown a house move into the mix, so it's a bit busy round here. Last weekend I had the house to myself. I should probably have... Continue reading

I am still around, just buried under work. I have lovely stuff like this and this calling to me. Unfortunately, before I can get to them, I have to get past this. More news when I have conquered the paperwork... Continue reading

It's been a weekend of glorious weather here. Walking the dog was a pleasure rather than the chore it can sometimes be during the long, grey months of winter. There was still a chill in the air, but the sunshine... Continue reading

Things have definitely taken a wintry turn around here. We had one snow day last Friday and by yesterday morning most of that snow had gone. Then, by this morning it had all come back again, with a vengeance -... Continue reading

Brrrr! No snow here, but it's still pretty chilly. I thought I'd better do a round up of my Christmas sewing before we get to Easter. Round up is probably a bit of a grand term, as I only actually... Continue reading

It's all about the cushions around here at the moment. I finished up one. Then I made another. Then I tried out a different colour combo. I love them all and it makes me very happy to see them on... Continue reading

We're back from a few days in London. After all the hustle and bustle of shopping, eating and drinking, I fancied a relaxing day today. I started off cutting a few squares, which made me think, I should really add... Continue reading

I know I'm a day late for Fresh Sewing Day, but I thought I'd upload my finishes for my own information as much as anything else. I think I may have double counted my BQS3 quilt, I'm too lazy to... Continue reading
