Gettin Giddy....

I said I might get a bit giddy...
I did but not only with the Jubilee stuff with the blog too. Three posts in one month that's got to be a record for me!

So to the Jubileee (which my daughter is calling Jubilympics, others maybe too but I'm out of touch!) giddiness... I made mini bunting using Benartex's 'Cool Britannia' fabric for the shop. The bunting is now up in the window and unfortunately I forgot to take pictures. Then I adapted the free pattern from Makower to make this pillowcase using yet more of the 'Cool Britannia'.

For the back I used another co-ordinating 'Cool Britannia' print.

Apologies for the picture quality, they were taken last night in bad light, sorry.

Jubilee Cushion

Here is my latest project a cushion for the Jubilee, using Makower's patriotic 'I love London' Fabrics.

I used the pattern designed by Hilary Gooding, which is provided by Makower for free here.

I love this pattern and may get a little giddy and make more.....

My Sad and Sorry Abandoned Blog!

Oh my poor abandoned blog! I do mean to keep updating but life just gets in the way. My latest excuse, and I do like a good excuse, is we've just moved house. So we are now living out of boxes, oh what fun! I tell myself that one day it will all be unloaded and packed away neatly!

Quilting-wise, my most recent activity has been to make The Sweet Shop Quilt, using the gorgeous Sweet Shoppe panel by Michele D' Amore for Benartex. 

These days I rarely get to make a quilt from scratch but spend much of my sewing time making samples for the shop. Not that I am complaining, I love any sewing project especially when I get to use a sewing machine. I'm now working on Jubilee bunting and cushions, pix coming soon.
