Bitty Block #12

Today we have another of our 
Bitty Blocks.

This time it's a Candy Cane
The #12 block measures 4" (10cm) and is on the Intermediate Level.

I actually made my 4" Bitty block around January when I was still thinking about the whole Bitty block collection....

I hope you all enjoy putting your little Candy Cane block together...

The free pattern can be downloaded from the Bitty Block Page.
Thank you to everyone who always pops in and leaves a positive and encouraging comment.
I really appreciate you all.

Winner from our Link Up Party:  Link #10
Yaay! Let me know which pattern you would like and I will send the PDF.

Thursday, 1 October 2015



Can you believe it? It's already October...
I really feel as if this year has flown by and all I can do is hang on..

All our Block of the Month projects have finished
All our Quilt a Long's have finished
So what now?

Halloween Haunt 2015

This month is the Halloween Blog Hop - so that's exciting!

My day is the 23rd of October! Yaay!

I need to start sewing the amazing pattern I've made for you all... Should be done by then.....

The magazine - 
Paper Piecing 1/4" Digital has been posted - so that's also exciting! There are loads of Mini Quilts for you to get stuck into and turn into great gifts.

There were also a load of patterns that I didn't add to the magazine - so those will be added to my growing list of "Hurry up and finish these" and you will all see them added to my shop...

A few ladies asked if I could make a few more blocks that have the same idea as the Oceans BOM so that they could extend the size of their quilts - so I dug out a block that didn't make it into the original 9 blocks.

This is the Scuba Diver block. It also measures 14" and is on the Intermediate level.

This block will be in my Craftsy shop for a small fee.

See you all tomorrow for another great Paper Piecing Link Up!

Hope you all have a great day!

Monday - already!

Hello there everyone!

Wow, this weekend really flew by. Everything I planned to do didn't realize and then ended up running about trying to find my Cr card. I looked everywhere.... nope just gone....

Looked up the last transaction which would have been the previous Tuesday at a shop, went back there to ask if I had forgotten it there, and was met with - cold indifference. The lady at the counter at least looked to her left and to her right, a little on the floor and then back at me, shrugged and said "I don't see it" - although the correct response should have been WTF! all I can say is BWaHahahahaha
Never seen anything like it in my life... I wish my eyes were cameras sometimes...

Did go to the bank and cancel it - now just waiting for the replacement card. Oh and the lady at the bank asked if I had written the pin code onto the card..... WTF!! Who does that? Again - BWahaahahaha! Has the world gone mad?


Thanks to everyone for the positive encouragement! Thanks so much. 
No looking back now. We push on forward and do our own thing!!

Also, thanks for all the link ups - you guys are doing such amazing work. I feel a little left out on the sewing front, but the dictator won't allow me to sew too much at this time... I still have 1 little cat block to finish and then my 16 cats will be done. Yaaaay!

I've decided that I'm just going to give everyone a free pattern today! 'Cause I love the feeling that sharing brings... So I hope you will all enjoy this one as much as all the rest.

Now I need to strap myself to a chair and finish the magazine for Thursday... for realz!


Hope you all have a great day!

Friday's Fun Link Up Party

Hello and Welcome!

Its Friday and that means...
Its time for our Link Up Party

 Today is also our Last day for the 'Lil Catz QaL Mini Quilt.

Unfortunately the quilting world is a lot like High School - which is really sad. There are sooo many amazing quilters and designers out there who have such amazing ideas and can do the job just as good as and sometimes a lot better than the imagined 'elite' among us....

I have been so PUT OFF this past week - by the ATTITUDES and the STUCK UP women who feel they run this show and the rest of us shall always only be clapping hands at their work while we sit on the fringes watching them show us how ....
Really makes me MAD!

You know what I say - To hell with all of it - I do my own thing and march to my own drum!!

You are ALL welcome to join me, create with me, play, be silly, have fun, ask questions, do your own thing, and generally have the time of our lives.....
Here we don't do criticism, snobishness, gossip, back stabbing....


Right, that behind us, Lets get on with Whatever you have to show us!!!

 Here are a few of my designs that either didn't make it into the new magazine issue or were just floating around until I finished them...
As soon as their instructions are done, they will be available in my Craftsy shop...

Show us what you've been up to with all your scraps, ideas, designs, etc -  
it's welcome here!!

Hope you all have a great Friday!

 The Mystery blocks has a new #1 Giraffe block

you can download it HERE

I'll also add the block to the Mystery block info page


 Finish Up for BOM's, QAL's, etc

I asked around at some of the big names for a voucher or two for our Forest and Lake QAL finish and also for our Catz qal quilts, BUT not even a reply to say no sorry can't help....
Quite frankly I'm not surprised ....

I think I'm just going to say Sorry Ladies, but the big finish finale on all things accomplished this year is not going to happen.  Never mind! Lesson learned...

Thanks to everyone who helped, sewed the blocks for me, went ahead and made the quilt before everyone else, took photos for me - I love you all!
Thank you very much for all your help.
