these rocks don’t lose their shape. . .Cushion Cut

Shame that such a pretty cut gets such a bum-rap in the naming department – this is also the easiest of the three blocks so far – no y-seams!  But really after the first two blocks, y-seams are a piece of cake now, eh?  :) I’m really enjoying the ability to audition the fabric placement […]

these rocks don’t lose their shape. . .Princess Cut

I’ve decided my diamonds will be decked out in Cherie by Frances Newcombe (click to check out her blog).  I love this line and I’ve stocked up on yardage with the intent to do our bedroom in this fabric, I really think it manages to be pretty without the fear of leaving my husband to feel like […]

all thanks to Kim Kardashian’s behind. . .

swiped from Craftsy. . .

How I have tortured my IG friends with photos of these placemats!  I shamelessly stole the idea from Craftsy – using the same Kaffe Fassett cool range millefiori fabric, the same pattern layout.  But rather than a QAYG, I actually built the quilt sandwich – I’m hoping to become more comfortable FMQ and this was an […]

these rocks don’t lose their shape. . .

Over the holidays I like to bring out all the old films; Bringing Up Baby, Arsenic & Old Lace, of course White Christmas and one of my favorites: How to Marry a Millionaire.  With Lauren Bacall passing last year it was a bit of a tribute to watch her and remember what a feisty lady she […]

C-c-c-cold in SOCal. . .

Most of North America is busy rolling their eyes at us, but it seems winter has reached glorious SOCal!  This jaded Canadian is shivering and wondering exactly who forgot to pay their sunshine tax this month? Just in time I managed to finish my final finish for 2014 – tah-dah! Oh I do love this […]

Secret slipper mods. . .

there were two things I wanted to try before making the secret slipper pair for my partner: 1. try Annie’s soft and stable for the sole – I’m hoping to make the slippers a little more cushy. . .I’ll try this soon and get back to you. . . 2. glue the bottom binding. . .without […]
