S is for Sunday Stash!
Not too much to share as I have been very good on my no fabric buying (it doesn’t count til the fabric’s actually in my hands does it? So I don’t need to mention the parcel on its way…). But I have been fortunate to receive some fabulous scraps from a gorgeous bloggy friend!
Gina from Party of Eight: Our Story (Gina has 6 kids and finds time to sew – amazing! Definitely check out her blog – some gorgeous stuff happening there) is an honourary Aussie in the Say Cheese Polaroid Block swap I’m hosting. In addition to her blocks, she sent me some fabulous scraps – some charm square size – including… some Nursery Versery! Bit of excitement! Thank you Gina!
S is for Scraps!
Next up isn’t quite a fabric addition to the stash, but it will help with the stash. I’ve mentioned it before, but let’s make it official and include it in Sunday Stash.
S is for Sewing book! (Okay that’s a stretch but I’m sticking with my “S” theme!)
This is the book I have been rabbiting on about of late. I bought it for the Spanish Tiles pattern which I adore. But it has some other really gorgeous patterns in it too.
That’s the Spanish Tiles on the left that I love, and I am thinking the Simple Gifts may be my next project? I love that this book focuses on showcasing large print fabrics in the patterns. The patterns are designed by Heather Mulder Peterson (she blogs at Anka’s Treasures) and are really gorgeous.
This is my take on the Spanish Tiles (just because I want to show it off again hehe). I’m using a FQ bundle of Seaside Cottage which is also designed by Heather Mulder Peterson.
The Spanish Tiles pattern was listed as Advanced so I started that with some trepidation but honestly, I didn’t have too much trouble! The pattern was so great, my points nearly always lined up! Miracle! Oh and I’m not associated with Anka’s Treasures in any way (I wish!), I’m just a bit of a newly converted fangirl!
Sunday Stash is over at Gemma’s place today – so pop over to Pretty Bobbins to link up!
S is for... Super new pattern release?
Yeah I know - that was pathetic. But I wanted to tell you that my owl pattern is now in my Craftsy shop - thank you to the lovely testers who tried this one out for me!
And lastly on my “S” theme…
S is for Sew Seasonal!
A new blog hop starting right here and right there (Blossom Heart Quilts) on the 1st November. Over 13 days, we have 25 bloggers sharing projects made with some Christmas themed patterns Alyce and I designed. Not only that, there will be prizes and a chance for you to make something with our patterns too! So watch out for that – more will be revealed soon!
And that’s about it. S is for Sunday which means quilt group today! Can’t wait to catch up with my quilty gals this afternoon! Hope you manage some sewing too!
