Itsy bitsy

I’ve been transforming this happy bundle of Cotton and Steel prints in to something rather special.


With my deadline rapidly approaching I thought I’d share a sneaky peek at some of the itsy bitsy piecing that I’ve been doing with it.


I really can’t wait to be able to share the finished quilt but that will be some months away yet. I think it will be worth the wait though.

Catch you soon x

Black and white

Thank goodness for hand-sewing! My machine sewing time is still limited due to my cronky back but I have been able to do a little hand-sewing to keep me sane. A little while ago I signed up to the Black and white quilt swap over on Instagram (I’m playing mama too this round) so I thought I’d limber up my black and white game with a mini-mini.

We’re off to buy some colour for our garden borders now. Catch you soon x
