Last week I blogged about the two bags I have planned to make.I ordered fabric on Oct 22nd and last night when the girls and I came home from school I had three slips in the mail telling me to come to the grocery store to fetch my packages that were too big to be… Continue reading Bags in the making – Fabric delivery

I saw a blog post a few weeks ago with awesome fabric organisation.She had used backing boards for comic books to wind up fabric on for storage. It looked neat and tidy and just what I needed.Unfortunately all the backing boards I could find were sold by people who (like me) wouldn't brave the entity… Continue reading Arranged
Back at work after a gloriously long holiday vacation. It feels really weird.I went to my local quilt shop on Monday with a frined who is starting her first quilt.

Fabric hanging to dry in anticipation of being cut and made into a baby quilt for our new little cousin.It's all in greens, yellows and lilac/purple so it can fit both a boy and a girl without being glaringly unisex.

I used this tutorial to make it and Michael Miller's cupcakes fabric that I bought from Bellepepper on Etsy.I used lilac felt for the back and a blueish button I had in my button collection.I kind of like how it turned out but if I make another I'll stuff it a lot more.
Pattern from "Allt Om Handarbete" and the fabric is bought on Etsy. It's Chocolate Lollipop by Anna Maria Horner in a green colourway.I bought a yard of it in pink as well and I cut out a dress for BigSister too. That's another wip though.This one is finished almost. It needs heming and a button… Continue reading [wip] Dress for BabySister
