It is jam hot. I keep saying it to myself, in my head. Jaaaamm HOT! Then suddenly rain. WET. I thought summer in Portland meant sun all the time guaranteed but it doesn’t, it means rain sometimes too. I’ve been travelling about the city a lot lately. Mostly looking for a place to live, but sometimes… Read More DIY | How to Sew a Modern Quilted Laptop Sleeve
Are these little guys not the cutest little things you ever did see? I love them so much. I bought 24 of them. I am so ready for Easter. To find a way of justifying the swarm of little Easter Chicks in my house at the moment, I decided to try and find a way… Read More DIY Easter Chicks Garland
This is a bag I have recently learnt about from my mother who asked me to make her one. She doesn’t often ask me to make her something. Usually, it’s ‘you can make it for me if you want’. Like I’m desperate for things to make. When in fact I usually, no, always have too… Read More Stop with the Sac a tarte.

That’s a whole issue I can’t figure out how to deal with, so I’ll just sweep that under the carpet for now. Done and dusted! I’d make a… Read More A Darling Quilted Pot Holder
I have been dropping little hints to you lately about starting an etsy store. I wanted to get it all shiny and ready for you, but I can’t hold it in anymore! It’s not well stocked, so think of it as humble. I have a modest selection of quilts and potholders. Which will grow, in… Read More One of those scrap quilts, please.
Okay, so I had one thing to do this morning on this quilt. One thing, and I screwed it up. argh. I have been trying to get myself into a regular morning running routine this past week and a bit. Usually, I am a night runner, but since the days are getting shorter with the… Read More running + coffee + quilting = yes! oh wait, no.
Here we go, my first sock along post in a long while. It is technically not week 8 for me, but for the sake of simplicity let’s pretend it is. Plus it makes me feel less slow, because I am sure socks shouldn’t take this long to knit. I’m a bit rusty at this blogging… Read More knitting socks | week eight
This quilt had been haunting me from “The Pile of Dread”; the corner of my room where all the WIPs sit waiting for me to follow through. I swear these quilts conspire in the night to go out collecting dust for themselves because there isn’t dust on anything else. They must get so fed up… Read More God Bless This Quilt + the maniac who made it. | Finished Object Friday
