Small but Satisfying (TGIFF)

Welcome to Port Hope Ontario today for Thank Goodness it’s Finished Friday. It’s also Good Friday, a day of reflection. It’s a day to be thankful for family, friends, clean drinking water, and safety. The streets are quiet, with many walkers enjoying the spring sunshine. The upheaval of schedules due to Covid 19 has given […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Gift for Lisa (TGIFF)

I tried to resist jumping in with another swap, but I rationalized that it wouldn’t take too much time. On Instagram #saturdaynightcraftalong is a fun group around the globe (starting in Australia) who share their crafty endeavours. This is the second year for a little gift swap at the end of the calendar year. My […]

TGIFF for June 15

Go to Quilting Hugs and Kisses for the TGIFF linkup (oops, I published it a bit early).

Modern Butterfly quilt – TGIFF

Welcome to TGIFF for May 12, 2017! Today I am sharing what is my oldest work-in-progress no longer. Thanks so much to the Carmine group, Simply Solids bee. This was an all-Canadian hive, organized by Erin at Sew at Home Mummy. The mandate was modern design, using all solids fabrics. Blocks made in 2013, handquilted […]

Starlight,  Stardark quilt TGIFF

This quilt is notable for a couple of reasons   First, it’s the first time I did such a variety of quilting on a full size quilt.  Second, it’s the first quilt finish where I don’t have a recipient in mind.  That’s right,  I am now an official quilt stasher. These pictures were taken at […]

Pink Pillow for TGIFF

Welcome friends to celebrate our finishes! And what better way to keep warm in our cold Canadian winter than with a quilt? But never fear, we welcome all finishes here, be them tote bags, pillows, garments, hats, socks…you get the picture I think. Today I have a fun finish to share, from my latest swap […]

A Pouch Finish to Give Away

Four days to Glamp Stitchalot!! But also four days until I give away this charming little train case. I bought the Crimson & Clover pattern from Sew Sweetness (Sara Lawson) a year ago, and I decided to use this swap (glampstitchaswap) to get it out and give it a try. It was difficult to find […]

A Frozen Finish

Here it is, the fastest quilt I have ever made! I love playing with the pretty fabrics, but this happy kid is totally worth the simplicity of a fabric panel. I had stopped into my local fabric shop, The Stitch Witch, the weekend before Christmas for a quick browse. And my daughter went straight to […]
