enough pandas????

OK you cant not know that i love pandas right?? so here is no 1 on my Q3 2018 FAL list the Oslo craft bag by sew sweetness. I have wanted to make one of these for ages, just never got round to it. but then i got the hidden panda canvas and i knew it had to be in this bag. I may have used up some more of my panda stash, but hey one can never have enough pandas 😁

Classic meets modern! another finish!

Number 2 on my FAL 2018 Q3 list, blimey im motoring on here! this was supposed to be a BOM by Myquiltinfatuation but im a bit rubbish at those and just went and finished it way ahead of time. Love the layout, used up a lot of dashwood in this. a fun bright quilt, destined for siblings together.

 Fabulous quilt holding from the fabulous Scoobs!

Booklet pouches

Liberty Gertie and Wooly Bob started some planning over a glass of bubbly .... Gertie loves Liberty but Bob is more muted. So what to make some Aneela Hooey booklet pouches from???
The answer is both!!!
Look, liberty dodos ...
it all got a bit much for Bob ....
Few days later and we have two finished booklet pouches. Great pattern and they are huge!!! liberty one is for sewing retreats etc, the other is for work, its made with lovely Australian fabric sent by a lovely chum.

Leaving do part one

When i announced i was leaving my job there were many different reactions. Lots of sadness I have made a lot of chums in the past 11 years. These two lovely folks, Shona and Philippa wanted to take me out for ice cream and sprinkles! How fab was that! There is a famous ice cream parlour in Musselburgh called Luccas, we went there and left on a total sugar high! So much love for these Ladies.

A leaving present

Oh my goodness where to begin?? well the beginning is a good place. Before i go any further lets just mention that this is me ticking off no 3 on my FAL Q3 list
I was in the process of leaving the jobi  had been in for 11 years a long time. My boss who has been a good boss and friend loves Japanese fabric and also loves the swans we have on campus, so it really was a no brainer to make her the Tartan Kiwi swan pattern in japanese fabrics. i knew exactly what i wanted to do, just needed to make sure i had enough fabrics.
The putting together was relatively straight forward, thanks to Juliets brilliant patterns this came together quite quickly.
Of course I had to get a picture of it on the campus
 And my favourite floofy pal had to photo bomb!
