Quilt for Theodore

It's been snowing here in Boston so I thought it was time to do a photoshoot. This quilt for Theo has been finished for a while. The blue and red fabrics are from M&L and I paired them with a thick beige sashing and red binding. My son chose the back fabric which he was really excited about. I made it twin size so hopefully he can take it to college one day. xx

patchworkI've been using the summer break to finish some projects that I'd started. Last week I finished this patchwork quilt. So fun! This one is for a cousin of mine who is a talented artist. Aaron carves pieces in jade / pounamu and gave me a lovely jade necklace when I was visiting last year. I wanted to make him and his family something and this lap quilt is what I came up with. Have a great day!

Cobblestone scarf

Hey! Check out this scarf I've made. It's for an Aunty who lives in Windy Wellington, NZ. She told me that one time she got out of her car, her scarf blew off and she never got it back. Whew! Turns out I'll be travelling down there soon so I can give it to her in person. Have a great day!

Patchwork Quilt





Hi there. I recently finished this patchwork quilt for my youngest. He loves to cuddle up with a blanket so I had an excuse to make this. It took me a while to make because I've been making bags and knitting! Stay tuned...

Quilted Tote Bag


I made this bag! Pattern is the Madras tote from Noodlehead with an interior pocket added for fun. Instead of canvas, I quilted the lining and exterior pockets. I'm looking forward to making more quilted totes. Thanks for tuning in!

Painting and Verse Frames

Well, summer is over and I've been making things! This painting was something I whipped up a few weeks ago. It is paint on canvas fabric in blues and white with specks of gold framed it in a big IKEA frame. 
I've  also been working on verse frames after a friend taught me how to make them. This one was quick and easy ...
I really had to persevere with this one (haha!) It's still not perfect and I may redo it with a smaller font. The frame was solid wood that I painted cream and distressed a little. Thanks for popping in!
