Eek! How did we get to the last FAL list of the year and I've still got so much stuff left!?! Having only completed a pitiful two projects from my Q3 list I only have myself to blame. With the addition of a couple of Christmas-related projects that need adding for this quarter my list … Continue reading 2019 Finish-a-long – Q4 – The Final Furlong
I can't believe we're on the downward slope to Christmas already. During Q2 I completed five projects, which just happened to be the five that I added to my list at the start of the second quarter. Rather disappointingly, that does mean that from my original list of 21 outstanding projects I have still only … Continue reading 2019 Finish-a-long – Q3 – 6 months down, 6 months to go!
Those first three months have flown by and from my original list of 21 outstanding projects I have completed seven...and added three (edit) five new ones. It could be worse, at least my overall numbers are heading in the right direction!

Let's … Continue reading March Round-up
I'm back in the blogosphere and shamed to report a woeful finish-along output of only one project for February...really must try harder. It is a good one though and a project that I've wanted to complete for a long time, I just wasn't confident in doing it. This rainbow of ombre pineapple blocks has been … Continue reading February Round-up
Imagine my utter delight back in August 2018 when this parcel of gorgeous Alison Glass fabric arrived on my doorstep. The richness of the colour and the interplay of the individual fabrics with one another was so inspiring that I was itching to start a project with it straight away. Road Trip - Alison Glass … Continue reading Luminaries – a quilty road trip
I've spent the last couple of weeks trawling through my various sewing storage spots and hidey-holes looking for the unloved and the forgotten. I've uncovered projects that had gone awry, shelved in frustration; pieces I did to try out a new technique, then moved on from before they became a finished article; old friends who … Continue reading 2019 Finish-a-long – Runners and Riders
