New Cottage Garden Threads have arrived January 22, 2019 17:36

If you want something different to stitch with I would recommend the CGT threads. They are stranded threads that have been pre-cut and are variegated colours. This means if you are travelling you can do a project with just one colour and get a great looking finish as the variety of colours will appear as you stitch. I have added 9 more colours to our range and when you buy the assorted packs they are only $7 each.

Collage Quilting Paintery technique June 30, 2018 08:06

Enjoying trying out the "paintery" technique making a picture with small strips of fabric. Using the "Making Fish" pattern by Laura Heine.

Enjoyed making this bag for a friend! April 6, 2018 11:24

I have used the "Melly & Me" Fat Quarter bag pattern for this bag. You just choose 4 fat quarters that you like and then decide which part of the bag you would like to use them. Darker fabrics are good for the handles and top of the bag. My friend likes designer Kath Kidson so I chose fabrics that were similar to her design style.
