(The above photos show one of my very first sewn projects. A little flag trivet. It’s completely hand stitched. And those apples are called Jonamacs. Quite tasty.)

New Shop!

Vintage Pink Floral Weekender
Well, it’s official. I’ve opened up my new shop at BigCartel. I’m pretty excited. Without Etsy’s help, I have a lot of work ahead of me in the promotional department. I’m currently waiting for the domain forwarding to go through, so that when you type in you’ll show up at my new shop instead of my Etsy one. (In the meantime, you’re welcome to visit at

There is a little nagging voice in my head that says this was a bad move, to leave Etsy. But it’s something I’ve wanted to try for quite a while. Besides, if it doesn’t work out, I can always return to Etsy.

Anyway, I’m slowly but surely going to get things listed in the shop. I don’t have as much stock as I’d like, but I’ve been busy working on other things (like the Series.)

Stripey Lonestar Quilt Block Tutorial

Good morning. Here is the latest block for the Series. I’m quite smitten with this one. Click the above photo to be taken to the tutorial document. I think it fits in with the quilt really well–I’m still on the fence about the Dresden Plate Block. I wonder if I should redo it more like this one, to make it mesh better with the “scrappy” feel of the quilt?
Sampler Quilt.
Here is the progress so far. What do you think?


Scrappy Bunting.
I’ve spent a lot of time rooting around my scrap boxes for this Mini Patchwork Sampler Quilt I’m working on. Before I go and use them all up (ha! Yeah right!), I figured I should grab a few to complete the bunting I’ve been wanting to make for ages.

There isn’t a single stitch in this project. I cheated and used glue instead. The fabric scrap edges are raw. I figure it hangs on the wall and doesn’t get wear and tear so nothing fancy needed.
I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to design. A photo wire and a small calendar are the only other things on my wall. Someday I might like to put a ledge shelf above my bed but in the meantime, this’ll do nicely.

Sneak Peek.
