This is ending up being a bit of a lost week, I am under the weather so not much is happening here, sewing progress is slow and most of the time is spent unpicking mistakes- let's draw a veil over that and instead I would like to share the work of a couple of friends.
Looking for a quick scrappy project?  After a gentle nudge from Penny, Leila has her first pattern for sale

Scrappy Leaf Key Fob Pattern
You can buy it here .  
And, if you are feeling  like a little more paper piecing, Amy has made her stunning Vintage Skier block into a pattern on sale here
Vintage Skier Pattern Cover
Amy has great attention to detail in this pattern with notes on suitable fabrics and the most wonderful shaping that makes the skier jump out at you!
And Julianna kicked off the Sew Out Loud Quilt a long with this stunning graphic block
Block 1 - zipper {Sew Out Loud QAL) 
Details and free pattern are found here. You can join this quilt a long at any time, dip in, dip out whatever you fancy- Flickr group here
Proud of my talented friends!  Back when normal service resumes here x


  1. Hope it wasn't too serious and you are feeling better.
    Nothing worse than being ill and trying to stitch, its like being tired you invariably have to spend twice as long unpicking, and in your mind you knew you shouldn't have started it in the first place.

  2. I hope you feel better soon. I have seen a lot of people have been getting sick lately...maybe it has to do with the weather. My cousin lives in London and she has mentioned how cold it has been recently.

    Thank you for all the great links. I will have to check them out. I've already look at Amy's's fabulous..she is so amazing with the details in her works. :)

  3. Thanks Kerry!
    I hate those days when my seam ripper wants to be the center of attention and gets in the way of all my sewing! Feel better soon x
