Cozy

As the temperature drops, I’ve squeaked in with another finish for the Q3 finish-a-long (original list here). Socks for me are a long term project for otherwise idle moments, and these ones turned out great. The pattern is from Eclectic Sole, a book from my local library, and the first time I have tried two-colour […]

Warm weather skirt finish

“Mom, since when do you wear a skirt?” “Why can’t you just say, gee, that’s a nice skirt, you look pretty.” This is the size XL of the Oliver + S Everyday Skirt, really easy to make. I’m not sure I like the 1/2″ elastic (two rows), I had to gather it a lot before […]

Quick shorts

I rediscovered these shorts — or at least the pieces — a few weeks ago. My daughter is 9 and after wearing her last pair into holes, I knew I should get these made up. The cutting was a bit crooked but at the end of the day, the $3/metre remnant fabric from 5 years […]

Finally a finish (TGIFF)

Hello, and welcome to TGIFF for July 26. It seems like forever since I’ve had a finish–at least of such a long time UFO (unfinished object). I confess, playing with pretty fabric is my favourite activity meaning more quilts seem to get started than finished. This was a bee quilt from 2014 (yikes) . I […]

Goals for 2019-Q3

Wow, here it is July! Since I didn’t get anything finished in Q2, the list doesn’t look too different. I did make some progress so how about a couple of new pictures 🙂 1. Summer sampler for my sister, add final border and quilt. 2. Glamp Stitchalot 2015 which is for me – add final […]

Goals for 2019-Q2

For 2019, I have set a goal to finish as many WIP as possible. And I’m using various motivations, including the APQ UFO challenge and the Finish a Long.1. Summer Sampler 2017 meant for my sister – finish filler blocks, add border, and quilt 2. Glamp Stitchalot 2015 which is for me – add final […]

Q1 accomplishments (finish-a-long)

Three! Yes indeed, three sparkling finishes! Well, better than one, but certainly not as I might have hoped. My original list is at this post, but here is a quick summary: 1. Summer Sampler — I worked on some of the joiner blocks and started the border 2. Glamp stitchalot – no progress 3. On […]

Clothing Trials

I really wanted to make this tunic (Late Lunch Tunic by Oliver +S), despite the fact that I know that my short and curvy shape is not generally good with tunics. I finally got this cut out on a hot day last July when i didn’t feel like sewing, and decided to focus on it […]

On Ringo Lake (TGIFF)

Welcome friends old and new to TGIFF this week! This quilt has taken me longer than it should because I have jumped into some other projects in the middle. With the small pieces of the Bonnie Hunter design, I knew an all over stitching pattern would work best, and I am happy with the dahlia […]
