A ‘love from mum’ day…

My daughter got a new outfit today, thanks to it being a stormy day outside and her mum being in the mood to sew! And she is quite happy about it! Look!… I don’t make as many clothes for my children as I should. My daughter particularly should have far more ‘lovefrommum’ originals in her […]

Starting the summer wardobe…

I have been trying out a few free clothing patterns online recently and am pleased to say have had some success stories! This one isn’t my first, I was making skirts the last couple of weeks, but haven’t photographed them yet! This is the Sorbetto tank top. If you search for it, LOADs of people […]

A baby trip up North…

This little baby quilt is one of those ‘better late than never’ ones! I just finished it for a friends 2nd daughter Kaya. Unfortunately it is a year later than planned and made just in time for her 1st birthday! I have a ‘deal’ on baby quilts made for friends where I get to pick […]


Just wanted to say my Victory quilt is now available as an instant download in my Etsy shop here. I have fallen in love with it all over again as I have been working on the pattern today! I forgot how much quilting I had done on it. No wonder I had no quilting needles […]

My first workshop – Yikes!

I held my first workshop on Saturday 8th March at Folly fabrics and it was great fun!! I can’t say if it was a great success or not. I will have to leave that up to those who attended to decide but I certainly had a good time! It was fantastic seeing see other people […]

FREE PATTERN- Arrow drops baby quilt

I first made this little Arrow drops baby quilt when I was working with my Henna fabrics and the concept has since evolved. It uses a method I dreamed up to piece the triangles completely randomly and without cutting lots of pieces out. Its quite clever if I do say so myself – and I […]

Lanterns cushion for new magazine

The lanterns quilt I made using my henna collection proved quite popular and I got a few requests for alternative projects using the design. This is a sneak peak of a cushion pattern that is to feature in a new magazine coming out soon. It will be a monthly publication launching this April. I am […]

Another quilt in my collection

I finished this one last week and have finally named her ‘Poppy fields’. Its a bit girly but there are poppies in there and its made using my meadow collection so I thought it fit. I have been surprised how much I like her because she is quite a simple quilt. I spent ages fiddling […]
