It’s been forever

Hello hello it has been forever. Life has happened. I’d almost forgotten my blog. I spent time the other week looking back through old posts and found quilts and things I’d forgotten that I had done. It’s a fantastic record. So here I go again.

Firstly I’ve gotten back into cross stitch in the last year. Like I need another craft activity lol. I’m currently participating in Stitch Maynia which is a Facebook group. Pretty much it is where you start 15 new things through May.

Day 1 – I started Mermaid Tales (also known as the Sea Whore SAL) from Peacock and Fig

Day 2 – I started A Ghostly Mandala by Ink Circles

Day 4 – I started Coffee and Friends by Hands on Designs. This is part of the Cool Beans series

Day 5 – I started Spring Garden Club from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

Well that’s it for today so far. I’ll be back

It’s been a long long time

Hi all, I know, I know it’s been four years since my last post.  Disgraceful I know.  It’s a long story that you don’t need to know but I’m back.

I can’t believe it’s 2016.  I’ve started a few new Block of the Month’s for this year.  The first one that I’m doing is the Happy Days Quilt with Sarah Fielke.

I’ve finished my first block which is a miracle as it is before the end of the month.IMG_0761

Just a quick post for my first one back.  Need to get into the swing of things again.

Talk soon

Precut Hexagons

Hi all, I have found the most amazing online shop that is doing something really great.  It is Possum Blossom Patchwork the brainchild of the wonderful Joanne.  I came accross this wonderful blog and shop a couple of weeks ago.  I contacted Joanne and immediately ordered the Multi Pack of Precut Hexagons in Good Fortune and Terrain (both by Kate Spain).  The special at the minute is that if you order these packs you get a free pack of paper piecing hexagons.  These hexagons are all perfectly precut and come in fantastic packaging by way of the most gorgeous little box with the name of the fabric line on them.  Joanne cuts these particular 1 inch finished hexagons from Layer Cakes.  I was sooo excited when these arrived I immediately contacted her to order more.  These are like little boxes of candy.  If you love paper piecing (which you know I do) just go on over to Joanne’s blog and shop and get buying.
