In my 2018 goals post, I talked about how I really wanted to finish my first quilt this year. I'm moving in summer and, as I mentioned then, I'm not sure my sewing machine will get set up where we move to so I'm attempting, however vainly, to get it done by then. Last year… Continue reading Quilting Progress – Finally!
I'm a little late with this new years goals post but it took me a little while to think about exactly what I wanted to write. I also spent the start of the year really sick but I'm over that now and ready to get down to business. Last year the goals I set were… Continue reading 2018 Goals
At the start of the year I wrote a post about my goals for the year. All of them. From my craft goals, to blogging, to reading, to Spanish, to my etsy shop. All of the things I planned to do this year. You can check it out here if you want to but I'm… Continue reading 2017 Goals – How did I do?
I hinted a couple times that most of my time was being spent working on a super secret present. First of all, i finished it in time! Woo! And sent it at the beginning of October. (it takes 3 weeks to get to systems from here which is ridiculous but true) and it arrived in… Continue reading Super Secret Project – Reveal!
Cross stich update time. Last time I showed you how far is gotten on my last pin cushion and said is have it finished to show you this time. Well, ta Da! Hufflepuff done. That all four houses (incidentally I've got all four patterns in a pack on offer right now). And here they all… Continue reading Cross Stitch Update
I've made some progress on my Christmas cross stitch. Unfortunately I managed to add two stitches into the middle somehow so its now two stitches wider than my pattern.... I'm honestly not sure how I did that. And it hasn't ruined anything it just means I have to be very aware every time I start… Continue reading Cross Stitch Update
I finally managed to unpick all of the backstitching on my Peter pan quote and can show you a proper picture of the finish. Here it is framed and hooped. I'm pretty proud of the fact I designed that and as always for any patterns I make it's available in my etsy shop as a… Continue reading Cross Stitch Progress (SAL)
It's July! Where is the year going? It seems like only a couple weeks ago that I made my new years goals for the year but here we are six months later. I thought it would be good time check in with them (no point making goals if you forget all about them). Writing… Continue reading Mid Year Goals – How am I doing?
I made another bag....I'm nothing if not predictable. When I ordered my quilt fabric at christmas the store had some charm packs on offer, one of them was prefect for my mum so I bought that. I think I mentioned that before but now I've finally gotten around to making the bag she requested out… Continue reading Birthday Bags Part 3: Mum’s Turn
I have another small finish to show you all! I'm really quite enjoying having small projects on the go whilst I'm doing a large project, it's great to have some finished along the way. The Ravenclaw pin cushion that I had started for the last update is now done. Here it is fully stitched: I'm… Continue reading Another mini finish
