Yes it has been ages since I've updated this blog! But this does not mean I haven't been sewing! I try to fit in what I can in between my scrapbooking.
I thought it was about time I showed you my sewing area which I promised ages ago. Its what I call my 'Sewing Room' but really its just a space...lol, a small corner of the hall area down in our basement.
It is great though because its warm and cosy, I have a great computer set up (just brought myself a new 22" monitor), I can surf the internet when looking for something or most of the time I just play a movie for company.
I have a Brother sewing machine and a fabulous Babylock, here it is:
I found this great little shelf in a boutique which I store some of my jelly rolls, still need to hang a few things though.
In the last year I have actually worked on a few quilt tops. I have four finished ready to press and get quilted and five others that I have yet to complete but are not far away.
Here is a pic of two that are ready to put together and send off to quilt. Sorry, really bad shots plus they need pressing!
This first one was a basic pattern from the book Material Obsession (first edition) really simple but showcases the prints from Amy Butler & Joel Dewberry.
This next one is using all Amy Butler's fabrics from her Midwest Modern range, just love this quilt, fresh and summery looking. Will be great once finished.
I will show you the end results once they have their binding.
I have just finished a kids quilt. I am making one each for Emily and Briana using a free download pattern from Valori Wells. I am using her Urban Flannels and I discovered that you can cut two quilts from the fabric requirements the pattern says for one.
Really gorgeous warm fluffy flannels that the kids are going to love. Here is the quilt pattern I am making, the top I have finished is at work so I can't show you.
Its actually a lot brighter and colourful in real life.
Other excitement for the week is I received my copy of the NEW Material Obsession Two book! yay, just love these books from Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. Will definitely be sourcing this to stock in the shop.
Other fabrics I have ordered and are on the way some of Valori's new Del Hi fabric. We have ordered all the fabrics in one of the colour palettes - featured in the main quilt below:

Well, thats about it for now, will try to update more often I promise! :)
