spring has sprung

I am really enjoying the lovely weather we are having at the moment, it still feels like a real novelty to be able to go out for a walk!

Another springy thing (boing) that is happening is that I have participated in my first Flickr swap - the 6-12" mini quilt group's Spring Fling. I received my quilt this morning, all the way from Virginia,

I just sent mine off today so I will only post a teaser pic of it in case my lovely swap partner Dena happens to look ;)

My laptop project is now out in Sew Hip, I am pretty pleased with it although, annoyingly they have got my website address wrong again, not sure why that has happened twice now. I also managed to get hold of a copy of Selvedge today with a small feature on us and another small feature in Popular Patchwork.

My current project is working on my new ranges, this, I have to say, is the most fun part!

I am also running 3 workshops over the next few months along with the aforementioned super talented Cerys!

We are doing Reversible Nesting Baskets on the 28th March, Covered Books on the 17th April and Appliqued Woodland Panels on the 15th May. The workshops are £30 each and run from 10-4 at the Old School House in Ashley Green, Buckinghamshire.

Here's an example of the nesting baskets for the first workshop


  1. I love those baskets. I tried to make a basket/box but forgot the interling so it has a bad case of the droops!

  2. thanks, I think they are very cute and very useful + they are addictive once you start making them, you should come along to the workshop!
