Aprils Furtle

Wow, well that went past in a flash didnt it! what a weird new world we are in now. And it is not going to change any day soon!
So April what were you up to? Well there were a lot of pouches! I made this pop open pouch by Aneela Hoey in my favourit batik from a lovely chum Sheena

The interior is fabric from a lovely chum Carol, I’m finding that I want to use fabrics that are special to me just now , fabrics which have a connection with special people or memories
Next up I made this clearly carry all pouch, pattern by minki Kim. The amazing fabric was bought at an indie birth craft crawl last year, again more happy memories.

I am so chuffed with the progress I am making on this cross stitch. It was a give away from a chum who didn’t want to do it any more. I adore Michael Miller designs, this is bigger than I normally make but the lockdown has given me more time to work on it.

Well the lovely host of this furtle, mini Archie was kind enough to pass on a Bali pop, so I am busy making two jelly roll quilts from it, great fun!

All members of the Glasgow modern quilt guild are making letters for a banner, I did a W

Oh Scoobs ..!!!honestly what am I going to do with him 😂😂 epic #husbandsholdingquilts action there. I finished my small world quilt, really loved making this, such a special quilt.

Hmmmmmm it seems a certain puppy has been raiding my credit card again! Oh budthepuppy, what am I going to do with you! But we were getting low on Liberty, down to our last eleventy billion meters of it 😂😂
Do you follow @auburnstitches ? She does a #coffeandquilts on a Sunday. It’s a great way to look at older quilts and pick out your favourite mug, but boy oh boy did I upset some folks when I put a cup of coffee on the silk quilt 😂😂😂 

And that’s a wrap folks, same time next month?


  1. Your Small World quilt is fantastic. So does the holder too - really going for the 70's look!
    I enjoyed seeing the coffee and quilts.

    1. Thank you so much! I am afraid the quilt holder wont need a wig to model the 70s look if this lockdown goes on much longer :-)

  2. What a busy month!! I love your new pouches and your Small World quilt is marvellous, almost as marvellous as Scoobs’ new look! Thanks for furtling xxx

    1. awwww cheers pet and thanks again for hosting the furtle! x
