Morning blossoms! My favourite Bergenia ‘Baby Doll’s are cheering up the courtyard this morning...

Having a lovely cuppa and watching Jo Carter rustle up a Dragon as I wait to go on! Actually had the presence of mind to take some behind the scenes snaps this morning, which I’ll share on the blog tomorrow...

PS: thanks for loaning me your quilt @lydjch 😘

Fancy a bit of house building this Saturday morning? I’ll be back at the @sewingquarter showing you how to make your own Croft house at 9 am and rustling up an an Arts & Crafts dream home at 11 am. Much easier to build than the real thing, promise...

What a lovely day it’s been after nearly constant rain yesterday ⛅️ We even sat outside for a while...

Just a little heads up, lovelies: the template for the #hearthandhomequilt in Today’s Quilter isn’t quite right, so please head over to my blog to download a replacement. Happy sewing on this rainy April weekend...

One tote bag, perfect for squirrelling things away 🌰🐿🥜
I slimmed down my squirrel’s hind quarters with an extra strip of fabric (if only you could do that in real life!!) and I’d definitely add some pockets to the bag...but a fun first draft!

Happy Easter ✨ it’s a beautiful spring day here - although it may snow tonight! - but it’s time to enjoy some moments of sunshine while we have them...

Squirrelly enough? ((Not entirely sure about the arm/leg embroidery...sort of wish I’d done it in cream 🤔)

Not exactly seasonally appropriate - but then neither is the weather 😳 - but one of the lovely @sewingquarter viewers casually mentioned me making a Squirrel block last weekend sooo...this appears to be happening. I’m thinking a tote bag, you know, to squirrel things away in...

Today we have had all kinds of weather, including a shower of hailstones so loud I jumped out of my chair thinking something had gone catastrophically wrong with the heating!! But we did have some blue skies and there’s a smattering of blossom...

I think we’re all ready for some spring weather and a trip to the seaside this Easter 🐣
If you’re not heading to the beach, I’ll be on @sewingquarter showing you how to make some seaside-inspired projects this Sunday morning: at 9.00 am I’ll be sharing tips for the #seagullblock and at 11.00 I’ll be making the #makesailquilt 🐣
Given that the clocks go forward that morning I may be in my pyjamas 😬 you won’t mind will you?... #cakestandquilts #sewingquarter

Those of you opening your subscription copies of @todaysquilter this morning will see my latest quilt - well, it was last November 😂 I’ve made a few more since then! - it’s called Hearth & Home and it’s made with a gorgeous new collection of Morris & Co. fabric by @freespiritfabric called Merton. 🏡
I was utterly smitten with everything Arts & Crafts as a young architectural student, so making it was quite the trip down memory lane. A huge thank you to @sewcraftyfox and her team for letting me play with such lovely fabric. And I’ll be showing you how to make it on the @sewingquarter next month...
