Meet Harriet and her sister.

"Pocket full of Posies"

I have had the absolute honour of Pattern testing for Natalie over at "Sewing Room Secrets"

This is her new pattern 'Pocket full of Posies' and this is Harriet.

I have used some of my much loved Tasha Noel stash for this one.

Being I fell in love with this pattern so much that I made two.
Meet my blonde version of Harriet.

For this version I have used "Woodland Spring" by Riley Blake Designs.

I love the mix of florals and bolder prints.

If you would like to make your own Harriet the pattern can be found HERE by following the links to Natalie's Easy store.

Until next time, hugs Sharon

For my Miss 6

"Dream and a Wish"

When these pretty fabrics arrived in the studio my Miss 6 was instantly drawn to the dress print.
Immediately asked for her machine as she informed me that her dollies needed a new quilt!
I think I am creating a monster :)

(Don't those Aurifil thread look delicious)

After convincing her that mummy should have a play first she let me be but believe me she was watching closely and became even more excited when the Pom Poms came out to play.

Ta - da
2 new cushions for my Miss 6 and her reading corner in her room.
She loves them but was just a little more interested in now getting her machine out.

Giant Ric Rac and Pom Poms = Win

Out came her machine and away she went.

Carefully selecting her fabrics.
Sorting her own placement.
Ever so carefully sewing and pinning.

Oh my, those seams join up perfectly.
A girl after my own heart and if I am not careful my stash!!!!!!

Until next time, hugs Sharon and Lily xx

New Venture

Today I have dipped my Toes in a new venture and have released my first pattern.

"Christmas Spin Table Runner"

The pattern includes instructions for two Table Runners / Toppers

The rectangle one finishes at approx 30.5" x 15.5"
and is great for a rectangle Table, a Buffet or Coffee table.

The Square one finishes at approx 20.5"

The pattern is Scrap / LC and F8 friendly for the Pinwheel blocks.
The centre and binding for the Square one can be cut from a FQ 

I personally love the texture that the pinwheels add to the runners.

The fabric that I have used is Little Joys from Penny Rose Fabrics.

If you would like support me and buy my very first pattern 
it can be found in my new Etsy store

I've also added the link to the side bar.

Hugs Sharon xx


I have made my first few blocks
for my Farmer Wife 1930's Quilt.

I am using my stash of Tasha Noel fabrics and I am also having a play with some Fussy Cutting.

And all together so far.

Hugs Sharon

My New Friend

This gorgeous bundle of "Chatsworth" fabric arrived in the studio and I thought it was destined to be a quilt but then an old pattern fell on the ground and, well one thing lead to another and now I have a new friend in the studio.

I think he is just a little bit cute.

And the only type of mouse I want to see!

I called defeat not he fabric flowers that the pattern called for and just used some crochet ones instead and added some buttons.

The pattern is called "Pipkin's Pincushion" from Petals and Patches.
Fabric is "Chatsworth" by Emily Taylor Designs for Riley Blake Fabrics.

Perfect match.

Until next time,
hugs Sharon
