Beth and I have been making mosaic’s together. Mine is inspired by the Broad-margined Azure butterfly which is fairly common in the Mt Lofty Ranges region. Also featured in the mosaic are butterfly attracting flowers; Sweet Bursaria (white), Strawflower (yellow) and Pale Fan-flower (purple).
This YouTube video by Karen Silton gave great tips on how to grout a mosaic.
I had some left over heat proof wadding from the Christmas table runner so made these two simple coasters.
The second design is inspired by Fairy Face Designs mug rug.
I made this quilt for baby Ivy. I chose bright colours but had a lot of trouble with the design. Top tip; don’t choose the main fabric with a white background (the monkey fabric) if it’s against other bold colours. To compensate, I ended up only using a small amount of the monkey fabric. I enjoyed using colour-changing thread for the swirls though. Hope to meet Ivy soon.
I made this clutch bag to go with my dress for my cousin Kirsty’s wedding. The pleats are fiddly but worth it. The pattern is from ‘Bags, the Modern Classics: Clutches, Hobos, Satchels & More’ by Sue Kim.
Modern design adapted from Brave New Quilts by Kathreen Ricketson Sublime Triangle pattern.
I made these felt love heart Christmas decorations.
To get into the Christmas spirit I made this felt Santa decoration for our tree. Gran made one too!
The pattern is called Woodland Christmas from Ric Rac and can be downloaded for free when you sign up to Craftsy. The only major difference from the pattern is that I stitched the belt.
