Welcome to hoppers from Blogathon Canada organized by Sew Sisters! I wanted to show you a little of what I’ve been working on and while, I was at it, I was musing about what style of quilter/sewer I am. Recently I have noted that I rarely follow a pattern exactly–it’s definitely much easier than making […]

(You need to say that with a posh English accent.) Yes, I’m bragging a bit here, because I was lucky enough to win some fabulous, brand new, fabrics! Introducing my stash additions of Priory Square by Katy Jones for Art Gallery Fabrics. Aren’t they scrumptious? My mom was born in England, but emigrated to Canada […]

This fabric is really soft--I think I need one in my size

I bet you’ve been eagerly waiting to hear how I did on my To-Do list from last week? Well, I know it’s only Monday, but with band rehearsal on Tuesday nights, I don’t tend to get much sewing–or blogging–done on Tuesdays. -finish up Abbey jacket (link to pattern) for my daughter Done, but someone is […]


Mid week already? Time sure flies when I’m having fun! Did you see all the yummy fabric being shown on instagram from this past weekend’s quilt market? Ah yes, but I have all those commitments to finish up… Fellow Modern Quilt Guild member Christine at Stitch All the Things (multi-talented, she is) has a To-Do […]

I have been trying to be more deliberate about fabric purchases, but here are some recent ones that are purely for the stashing enjoyment. I had a helper for my photo shoots, which I include for the purple fabric, since the individual […]

Welcome back folks!  Some successes last quarter, but I am feeling really bogged down by these WIP, so trying to get through them.  In Q3, I finished 2 quilts, both baby quilt gifts so they had specific deadlines, if you know what I mean.  So just to keep me honest, here is the new list. […]

Sherri from Thread Riding Hood emailed me a few weeks ago, would I like to join her and some friends for a sewcial night and test out her new purse pattern? Well, it didn’t take me long to say yes, despite the challenge of Friday night traffic across Toronto. And fortuitously I had just ordered […]


I actually accomplished more than I thought I would, considering my husband worked all weekend (extremely unusual). I mean, I love my daughter dearly, but she wants mom’s undivided attention all.the.time. D’you know? A start on my little quilts swap. I had my little helper lay out the pieces, that helped keep her busy. Some […]

So that I could lay the Millstone quilt top out on the floor to measure for borders. Not having a pattern, I guessed at the proportions I need. The kona Ash is cut 2.5 inches wide, the aqua at 6 inches wide (to finish at 5 inches after squaring it up after quilting. I like […]
