Hi. Wanna see what I’ve been up to in the last month and a half or so?
Okay. First off, I knit an Ishbel shawl. We’re getting married sometime, because I love it so much. (See the Rav specs.)


I did a super awesome crochet potholder swap where I made five potholders:

and got five beautiful potholders back in return. Good crochet practice for me, and even better mail in the end. I love them all.

I made some new patchwork pouches, eye pillows and journals. Some are in the shop right now, if you’re interested!

I got some work done on quilt tops. I finished this one that was sitting in my “fix” pile for about 5 years. Now it’s sitting in my “quilt pile.” No idea how long it’ll sit there.

This top was meant to be finished for my friend’s baby…over a year and a half ago. Now I’m working on the quilting and will hopefully have it finished up soon.

And then I started this one. It’s far from being done.

Then it was the 4th with all the picnic-y goodness and fireworks:

I made some progress with another new crochet project.

And finally, I came up with a new design last week. It’s in the shop, too.

Okay. All caught up. Lots of new things being made!

    Oh if only I was as cool, talented and as productive as you. I’m so jealous, I’ve given up pretending I’m not. I really enjoy your posts. The quality of your works looks awesome. Don’t mind me while I’m fan-girling from afar. Thank you for doing what you do so well and taking the time to share. :)

  6. You have been very busy, I love the colours you use in your crochet.

  7. Hey! You’re back! I admit, I took you off my blog list when you disappeared. I was sad. You’re funny and cute and I love your stuff. You’re blog title is the greatest ever. I even considered stealing it when I figured you’d gone away forever. But I’m glad I did my random “modern quilt” google image search just to look around and found you! Yay!

  8. such a lot of goodness!
    Beautiful stuff.

    I love your pouches, nice choice of fabrics !!
    Read from the older posts that you are using a Brother QC1000 sewing machine. I am eyeing one myself, and would appreciate your feedback on the machine. I sew mainly quilts and some bags / pouches.
