I'm working hard to get my landscape applique in place. With heading down south at the end of the week, I'd really like all the applique done and pressed down - there is no way I'll get it stitched as well, but I will have my older Bernina with me for the second part of my trip so intend doing some stitching while away.

Can you guess what I'm up to now?

Posted by on 19 April 2021 | 0 Comments

I can't believe how busy I've been this past week, and here we are around to Tuesday again. Today I thought we'd play a guessing game of "what am I up to now?". I'm going to add a few pictures below and you can see if you can guess what this might end up as. Be as descriptive as you can!

New Animal Block - giraffe

Posted by on 12 April 2021 | 0 Comments

I've been busy creating new animal blocks for Autism Awareness. My autistic son helps me by doing the initial drawing and then I line draw it into applique pieces and create the actual pattern and block. Previously we've worked on mostly sea or water critters but this year we have moved to land animals and the first up is a giraffe. Here is it cut out and ready to stitch.

Last week I started designing a new quilt. I manipulated a photo to make a better composition, then printed it out and pinned it to my design wall to think about and consider changes.

Inspiration to Quilt

Posted by on 15 March 2021 | 0 Comments

Last week I went for a 30 minute walk and snapped photos for inspiration (read it here if you missed it) and this week I'm going to use one of the photos I took to start working on a new quilt. There is a little ground work to do first before I can get to the sewing machine or even the cutting board but all these things will make for a better result.

Ideas for Quilt Making On the Spur of the Moment

Today, Tuesday, is always the day I publish my blog post. I've been doing this for years now.... and usually, before Tuesday I have an idea of what I want to blog about. Often I have some ground work done as well, however, this morning I come up with a blank. No prep work, no ideas. I have heaps of notes, journals and ideas that I could use so spent an hour or more, sifting through these, but nothing sparked my interest..... and anything that did, actually would have taken more than a day to prepare, create, photograph, and write about.
