Flimsy Finishes

I've had two flimsy finishes this week.....

Yes, two tops now ready to be quilted!

The first one is made

from these blocks....

into this...

I'm intending to machine quilt this one myself,

I did iron it!
and give it to a friend who is retiring from teaching 


And Helen's Dresden is together too!

This one is a big one, 

measuring 88" by 74",

so it's not only difficult to photograph but beyond 

my quilting skills.

So we will get it professionally quilted!

Time to get some backings prepared!

Happy sewing!

Home Sweet Home

I recently had the pleasure of testing a pattern for 

Allison of Campbell Soup Diary!

There are four graphic designs to choose from in the 

"Stitches" set....

And I worked three of them into a new

sewing machine cover.

The needle is a little wonky because I made it from felt

I'm considering writing a tutorial, 

if anyone is interested....

I had this mauve fabric in my stash...

which was the perfect lining!

I figured my pretty "new" Singer 348 machine 

deserved a new cover.

Maybe it needs a new mat too? 

The pattern has just been released, so if you'd like to 
make your own, head HERE

Happy sewing!

Short and Sweet!

I've had a finish this week....

I lightly quilted my Tiger Tales quilt over the course 

of the last week,

adding some hand quilting too!

I am happy to be donating this one to a refuge for 

domestic violence victims.

The backing came from my stash, the name long forgotten 

I hope brings comfort, 

just as this cute little dog does.

Happy sewing!

Winter is for knitting!

I tend to focus my winter pastime on hand quilting 

and knitting.

I recently finished my Tangled Up jumper/sweater

in this wonderful purple colour called Imperial...


I knitted most of this while I was recovering from 

foot surgery last September.

I struggled a little working out the some of the    

seaming, but with the help of a friend, I got there.

Today it was cold enough to wear it....

with a scarf, I made a number of years ago!

I've now started a cardigan....

in this silvery grey yarn.

More details are on my Ravelry page here

Now to baste a quilt, ready for hand quilting!

Happy days!
