Meadow quilt one, done…

This one was pieced in a day but I managed to drag out the quilting somewhat but changing my mind and unpicking about 50 times! Well, about 3 times anyway. I planned from the start to quilt lots just in the white areas and make the triangles stand out but nothing I tried looked nice […]

New year, New collection…

I have barely woken up from my Christmas break and yet it seems to be all go for a new and exciting year already. I had a knock on the door from the UBS man last night with a big box full of fabric. I am still sewing projects with Henna and have patterns to […]

Recycling for Christmas….

I am quite proud of this initiative on a rainy Saturday morning. Its Christmas soon and I’m feeling proactive!

Meanwhile… somewhere in Henley…

I spent most of yesterday quilting my victory quilt (working title). This was designed by me and beautifully pieced by my lovely mum! Thanks Mum! As my step dad pointed out, I am already taking on staff! And meanwhile, somewhere in Henley, my first collection is getting ready to go to shops! Which is, perhaps, […]

Hello Dolly!

This was one of those projects that was no where one minute and then suddenly it’s there and finished. I love them! At the moment I have 2 quilts layered up ready to quilt, 2 bags half made and 3 patterns that need to be written up but on Monday I made this instead. I […]
