Christmas stockings

I made ‘his and her’ Christmas stockings for Angie and Matt. I hand stitched the cotton ribbon to the cuff. The pattern is from Diary of a Quilter. The picture is a bit dark because we were having a power blackout!



Scrappy fabric pouch


Pleased to say that my scrappy fabric pouch looks similar to the one by sew delicious.

I gave this one as a gift to Aurelie for being a wonderful friend and tour guide to us in Paris.

The pouch is a medium size perfect for keeping electronic chords or bits and pieces when packing a suitcase.

I used the pattern from It was a great way to ‘use up’ scraps of fabric. If you’re into sewing I recommend you join this blog.

Here are two more that I’ve made.

Olivia’s baby quilt


I made this cheerful square quilt for Rowan and Antonella’s baby girl. It took me a long time to come up with such a simple design. Initially it was going to be all squares and triangles but it looked too busy. It is quilted with loops.


This is actually the second quilt for baby Olivia. When I made the first quilt unfortunately the colours ran when doing the final wash 😦 To say I was disappointment is an understatement. I think it was because I used fabric made in different places and mixed bold patterned fabric with pale plain fabric.  The first one is now the cats blanket!

Mum’s quilt


For my mum’s significant birthday I wanted to make her something extra special. So together we picked Japanese fabrics in cream, pink, red and blue. I used a similar design to my own quilt; small squares, big squares and rectangles with two strips of maroon fabric to break it up.
