November Round-up


I blinked and November disappeared!  I missed making a collage last month as I was too busy but here for your viewing pleasure (and so I can feel like I achieved something) is my November round-up ;)

Clockwise from top: side two of Bee Quilt, Butterfly quilt (2m square!!), side one of Bee Quilt, quilted table runner, Pirate quilt (over 2m square!!)

I did manage to make three large quilts, and in addition to the above there were a number of cushions and quilted minis that were made and distributed too quickly to photograph!  It was that kind of month…  I don’t think I’ve blogged any of the above yet *sigh*

I’m linking up to Fresh Sewing Day at Lily’s Quilts.

August round up


Not only is August over but it’s already the 4th of September here in Nouméa!  August was a big month for me which ended with a double birthday party for two of my children.  I know I probably shouldn’t reinforce gender stereotypes but I must say that I really enjoyed making a princess cake and seeing all the little girls dressed up as princesses.  I wouldn’t be lying if I said I put my own princess dress on LOL  Of course my biggest finish for August was my daughter’s princess quilt.  You can read more about it here :)

Princess Quilt

I can’t forget the Celebration Quilt that I made with my Wombat Stew bee blocks.  LOVE!!!  And it made the perfect backdrop at the party :)

Celebrate Quilt

As always there were lots of cushions completed in August.  I seriously have a thing for quilted cushion covers.  Fun!!

Clockwise from top left: Mr 5′s birthday cushion, two quilted cushions (not blogged yet), Curvy Quilted Cushion Cover, Victoire’s birthday cushion, Gaéton’s birthday cushion, sweet pouch swap (not yet blogged).

I am linking up rather late to Fresh Sewing Day at Lily’s Quilts.  Did you have a super productive August?  I’m hoping the productivity will continue in September despite packing up the house…  Wishful thinking LOL

July Wrap-up


July was a big month for me, biggest of all was the move from blogger to wordpress.  Now you can find me at still a work in progress but up and working :)  To get over going cross-eyed over html code I threw myself into some recovery sewing.  July was really productive!

I made quilts (or partial quilts).

Clockwise from top left: Flight of the Butterflies, Celebrate quilt basted, Colourplay flimsy, Single A Mini

I made lots of cushions


Having a (nearly) three year old girl in the house princesses were a feature in July :)

Easy Peasy Princess Dress, paper pieced Princess and the Pea block (not yet blogged), Prince crowns (not yet blogged).
