Finished this very special needlebook, which has a lot more happening inside! 😃 Very inspired by Mary's @sunnydaysupply beautiful work and all her lovely hand quilting...

An itsy bitsy needlebook is a fun size for just a few needles. It's just 2.5" x 2". The next one I have in the works is much more heavy duty, as I think it's useful to have a few different versions for different projects. Horses for courses 😜

This week I've been making a pinch pleat valance for my mum's new kitchen window. Fully lined in block out fabric, it makes the quilting fabric much more substantial. She picked these colours and the cockatoos as she loves these birds. Lots of pattern matching 😐Not my favourite job too do, but it's good to know I still know how to make them! #pinchpleat #curtains

Tildas new collection Birdpond has me crushing on a whole new colour range! I'm loving the retro themes of olive green, orange, purple and light brown. And lots and lots of tiny florals! The dots basics range has expanded as well so lots of fun coordinates to play with. I have lots of plans for these! Available from September 😍😍

This little sewing mouse needle book was a Christmas pressie for my mum in law, and I get to see it when I visit! Does anyone else see something they made ages ago and wonder how they did it? I rarely take notes when I design something, and I always wish I did later on! For a beautiful finish, always use high quality wool felt, and rotary cut it for accuracy. My ocd can't stand wonki cutting🙈😂

The first week of the #libertyscrapchallenge has already seen some amazing creations on the hashtag! So why not grab your scraps and put them to good use, and win some prizes to boot! Here's the pincushion I was working on this week... It's a hefty one meaning you can stick it full of pins with one hand and it stays put!

Scrappy hexie quilt progress! I'm joining slabs of about 40 hexies together and then sewing together. Planning on making making it twice this long, too make a decent lap sized quilt, around 60 in.

I've had a fun week pattern testing... This time for @lilmaisiedaisy. This is her #rainbowdresdenpincushion pattern, and is the cutest little addition to my sewing room. Its a quick and easy sew, and perfect if you're just starting out with dresdens. Some fabrics from the up and coming #tildabirdpond might have found their way into the rainbow too! Thankyou for letting me test Jen!
