I love the weekend. Work is finished for the week and we can go about our crafty pursuits for a couple of days. Today I’m going to meet some new people at a quilt guild meeting so that should be exciting.
Now to what’s I’ve worked on this week.
I finished the second room in the Haunted Mansion SAL from Tiny Modernist.
I also finished the September Guardian in the Guardians of Notre Dame SAL.
I received a happy bundle of fabrics from Polka Dot Tea Fabrics. This is a Fat Quarter bundle of Road Trip by Alison Glass.
Lastly my lunchtime stitching project has been the third block in the Cornelian Quilt from Hugs and Kisses. I’ll be taking it to the guild meeting today to finish it.
A couple of years ago I bought a Husqvarna Viking Mega Quilter on a Grace frame. Now the frame came with an extension but where the machine is it won’t be staying. If I was to put the extension on we would never get it out of the room. So I took the machine off the frame and I moved it on to a table. This left the frame unused so I took the rollers off the frame and my wonderful husband cut me a piece of timber to inlay within the frame. So I now have a long table that can use to baste a quilt or to hold current blocks.
The blocks on the table at the moment are Quilts as you go blocks from the Happiness quilt designed by Monica Poole for the Homespun magazine in 2014. Here are a few of the blocks.
I also had some fabric arrive this week. It was Tula Pink’s new line called De La Luna. I bought this from Polka Dot Tea Fabrics on Etsy here in Australia.
See you next time
The last week I’ve been trying to catch up on a few cross stitching projects.
First was the first room in the Haunted Mansion Sal from Tiny Modernist.
I finished part three of the Adventure Awaits SAL from Caterpillar Cross Stitch.
Did a little bit on a StitchMaynia start which was A Ghostly Mandala from Ink Circles
My lunchtime stitching project was Enjoy the Ride SAL from Caterpillar Cross Stitch
I also finished the August Creatures of the Legendary Creatures Alphabet from Clouds Factory.
See you next week
I was very excited a couple of weeks ago that a Craft Show came back to my city. We haven’t had a craft show here since 2014. Craft Alive who has been holding shows in regional areas of Australia finally came to North Queensland. They’ve also put out their dates for next year and they’re coming back. Hopefully bigger and better.
Well I attended the whole three days. I went to classes and talks every day and learnt some new techniques to try.
This was a class with Pauline’s Quilters World.
This is my pattern haul from the first day. There are some patterns from Sew Quirky and some African Animal silhouettes that can be made into a quilt.
It was a great three days and I can’t wait for next year
Hi all back again, I am a bit rubbish at the blogging thing but I’m trying to get better. I thought I’d come back today and let you know what I’ve been working on.
Firstly I finished the August block in the Guardians of Notre Dame SAL from Ingleside Imaginarium.
Worked a little on Spooky Halloween from Lakeside Needlecraft. This was a SAL offered in 2017.
I made some vinyl covered project bags
Not much I know but at least an update.
Day 6 I started the National Parks Birthday Club designed by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. They are one of my favourite designers.
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
I’ve finally finished the Block 5 of the Arcadia Avenue Quilt called Blooming. I started this as a BOM in 2015 and hope to get it finished in 2016.
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.
Just a quick post for my first one back. Need to get into the swing of things again.
Hey guys long time I know I know. I’ve just bought this fantastic little book called Simply Charming Mini’s that arrived yesterday. This book is written by the wonderful Konda of Moose on the Porch Quilts.
To celebrate the release of this book, Konda is having a It’s a Mini Quilt Along. There’s still enough time to sign up.
