It’s the end of April and spring still doesn’t seem to want to make much of an appearance. Even though it’s a bit dis-heartening, I have been insanely busy sewing because I’ve decided to start selling a few of my little quilts! I won’t be taking orders, but I’ll be posting finished quilts that if you like the look of, could be yours!! Or someone you know I’ve had lots of people ask if this was possible and while most of the quilts I make I love and want to keep/hoard- it’s just not totally practical to have 10 lap quilts for snuggling on the couch, one should do. Plus as soon as I send one to someone and they send me pictures like these back… I feel happier than ever!
I’ll be posting a separate post in the next week or so with all the for sale quilts!! 4 or 5 I think. For now I’ll just share them on here and my fb and instagram, but if you know of anyone who might like one please share! (Thanks you awesome friends!) Here’s a sneak peak until then.
Also I had to get a new iron, ugh, turns out my last one was a bit crap even when it did work because my new one is waaaay better! (And purple)
And I found some imported baked beans, phew, just in time for Anzac day. Energy for the week!
I have been nice and busy both at work and on my weekends! I always say better busy than bored! Although I can’t even remember the last time I was bored! So I’ve made a couple new baby quilts. Some for friends and some for soon to be sale! I’m just using all my favorite fabrics, which seems like an obvious thing to do, but I tend to hoard them, only taking them out of the drawer to stroke and admire them, until now. I’m just going to use them all up so I can get more later! And because of this, each new little quilt I make becomes a new fav. Forgive me if you follow me on Instagram, I often feel blogging is slightly redundant, but you’re in control! Scroll down/click away if need be! The autumn weather really makes for good crafting, I usually find an hour or so to bake too, so my weekends really do end up being cozy and productive. Hope you’re enjoying your days, spring or fall!

It’s my lovely Poppys birthday today. Happy birthday Dad!
It was my sweet Goddaughters birthday yesterday too! She asked for sparkly cupcakes, so I obliged (pretty much – it’s hard to find food that sparkles!) That with some real sparklers and a helium balloon and life is good!
Did you make tons of arts and crafts as a kid? Well I sure did. Then I went to art school and became overly critical, so I stuffed all my old things in a closet. Recently my parents have reclaimed their house, ha and rightly so. Repainting and tossing out years of junk from 4 kids. Rediscovering little lost treasures along the way. Like this cute little appliqué quilt I made when I was 16. What a nerd I was, but I had skills! Need to get those back asap : )
