A funny thing happened in the wee hours …

Last night was sleepover time for my grandson who will be 3 in July.  Since we downsized in 2015, my sewing room is also the laundry room which was converted from a bedroom before we bought this house.  It has great storage with two closets and a counter on top of the washer and dryer which was why I claimed this room before the ink was dry on the contract netflix filme die man downloaden kann!

New pattern release

Introducing my newest quilt pattern — Montenegro

This quilt was inspired by a Mediterranean cruise.  Our first port of call was Kotor, Montenegro.  I have always been a fan of Bougainvillea in its glorious magenta.  Its contrast against the stone buildings was beautiful and caught my eye.  The beautiful Mediterranean sea with its rich teal was the next colour to inspire me.

Hexie Journey

A few years ago in anticipation of hip surgery I decided to attempt my first hexie quilt project. I’m not sure how lucid my thinking was in choosing a project with over 17,000 half inch hexagons but I’m committed to it now (or maybe should be committed 😜) kostenlose software herunterladen.
