Bits & pieces & the dreaded lergy...

Well this week did not turn out how I expected. The weekend just gone was supposed to be a weekend to spend with Hubble. The first weekend we’ve had off together where we don’t have other things to do, in weeks. 387 more words

Being part of a community.

It is so easy to become a lone figure in your sewing room when you become engrossed in whatever you are working on. When you do something that you love, you tend to get lost in it and time just whizzes by. 595 more words

Great Harwood Loop #2

The second loop for Great Harwood is a 3.6 mile walk, mainly in the beautiful countryside surrounding the town.  I did this with my two boys (11 & 9 years old) and including stops for taking pictures, , climbing trees and messing around on the top of Bowley and it took just under 2 hours . 720 more words

A home for my threads.

I went to the Toodyay Fibre Festival a couple of weekends ago and I bought this book by Natalie Bird called “Cottage-Style Charm”. I bought it from The Quirky Stitch, an online store who had a stall at the festival. 363 more words

Great Harwood Loop #1

This walk is a simple 2.6 mile loop starting and finishing at the Mercer Memorial Clock, Town Gate, Great Harwood (Post Code BB6 7DD).  The first half features a steady uphill from the start, but the good news is it is all downhill on the second half!   526 more words

Anyone for tea?

Another UFP is done and dusted. A table runner with the most gorgeous tea cup fabric. The tea cups are perched precariously on top of one another and it reminded me a bit of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party so I wanted the border to be a bit quirky and slightly mismatched. 138 more words

Beautiful binding!

Well I’m nearly finished another UFP – a table runner I decided to make when I found a gorgeous piece of tea cup fabric. It has been sitting in my UFP for about 10 years (terrible I know). 67 more words
