Sailor quilt from Zarkadia

I have decided to enrich my Etsy shop with more baby quilts, and stop producing pouches and other accessories. So for a fresh start a pulled out one of my favorite fabric lines!

Sailor quilt

Meet the Sailor quilt!

I designed this panel quilt using paper and pencil...simple and easy. I have been thinking of writing a pattern for it but for now, I will keep on making more baby quilts for the shop.

A really fun quilt for a newborn baby boy, to be used as a crib quilt, a playmat or even on the wall as nursery decor.

This ...

Black Friday Sale at Fluffy Sheep Quilting from Fluffy Sheep Quilting

Happy Black Friday!  Today officially kicks off the shopping mania (in the US at least...) that leads up to Christmas.  What is Black Friday to me?  It's overstuffed newspaper with adverts tumbling out the sides, traffic that will make you wonder if the sale inside is worth the parking torture and lines at the checkout that will make your head spin.  But the deals are irresistible   


**How happy are we to stay at home and shop for pretty fabrics online?  Sheer bliss.**



What better way to celebrate Black Friday than with a Fluffy Sheep Quilting sale?  This Friday, Saturday ...

Improv Wedge Quilt from Selvage Blog


This quilt was just added to my Etsy shop. See the pattern here.
It measures 58" wide x 65" long. All Kona cotton solids. This quilt is fun to make. 
It's a little short to use on a bed, but it looks awesome on the wall, especially with a spotlight on it.
(The narrow outer stripe is the binding. It was photographed on a white wall.)

Christmas Makes from Creating Chaos

Such a long gap between posts!  I am very ashamed.

However, I have been very busy making ready for Christmas and now various items have been delivered to different outlets, I finally have time  for blogging.

Started off with gift tags in three designs:

   


I particularly like the button ones and will be using this idea for my Christmas cards this year.

Felt decorations came next:

   

   

As Mug Rugs/Mats seem popular at the moment I made some of those too.   I also made some special Christmas ones to use when leaving a drink and snack for Santa!

NYC! from Ellyn's Place

In the spring, my oldest daughter Leigh Anne moved to New York City. It's been her dream since she was a little girl, to be a journalist in the Big Apple, and this year she made her dream come true. I couldn't wait to visit her there, to see her awesome apartment in Brooklyn (which is bigger and more beautiful than I ever expected!) to share some good food and meet her new friends. So, last Thursday, my buddy Joellen and I hopped on a plane and went to New York to see Leigh Anne!

yes indeed, we ...

Aprons for my Helpers from Fluffy Sheep Quilting

When I brought my shop to the Clarinbridge market last weekend it was a true neighborhood affair.  Not only did the community join in to support local vendors, but the two lovely girls from next door volunteered to help me mind the shop.  They are 10 and 12 years old.  The 10 year old loves pink and purple, loves to perform/sing and can tell a super story playing each roll herself.  The 12 year old is a jokester, an athlete and animal lover.  They are hilarious together.  We visit nearly every day to let our dogs play and hear ...

Clarinbridge Market Stall {2014} from Fluffy Sheep Quilting

Last weekend I took the shop to the next town over, Clarinbridge, for their annual market.  Every Saturday in September they ask the local vendors to come to the town's square and set up a market stall.  It's quite traditional in that there are farmers vending veg, people spinning yard from fleece and livestock for sale.  You wouldn't believe how hard it was to resist the donkey foal on sale for 40 euro!   If only we had a field.

We arrived bright and early to set up in our assigned spot.  There was a small issue in ...

What am I up to at the moment? from Creating Chaos

I've been busy recently creating lovely little things to sell at a craft fair I have booked in August.  Sadly that hasn't left me much time for creating my textile art.

However, I am very pleased with the things I have made which include several items using cover buttons using vintage and vintage-style fabrics.   There are buttons, hair clips and bookmarks.



 

There are also some brooches, some made from felt - both needle made and wet made - and some from fabric.




I've also made some heart hangings which incorporate a lightly stuffed heart mounted on a decopatch covered ...

Popping in, popping up from Kitty Kitty Crafts


Hello! Long time no....anything, really*. My hands have been too busy behind the scenes, making making making, for me to do some necessary typing!

I must be feeling Patriotic from Bake and Sew

Do you feel you are surrounded by red white and blue at the moment? Well I suppose it depends where you live. In the UK currently, the shops are full to the brim with patriotic goodies. Not only are we hosting the Olympic games this summer but the Queen is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee; so union jacks at the ready folks.

I have been surrounded in my sewing room too and have been filling up my etsy shop. Take a look if you have a moment. thanks, Anita x

Christmas shop update from Bake and Sew

I have been at a couple of fairs over the past few months selling my creations. It has been great fun to meet customers and realise that there are people out there with the same style and tastes as my own! I make things I love and hope others do too.

I have just updated my shop with some new items if anyone is looking for christmas stockings.

Or somethings to fill those stockings.

Or there are little gifts to give to teachers or as a gift for a hostess.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for all your ...

Another generation begins…. from SewIt

002Well tonight i’m helping Karina (my youngest) cut out a dress pattern and then hopefully she will want to take on the challenge of sewing it herself since the dress is for her. it’s a very simple pattern and i made the exact same dress last night for my oldest daughter. just a simple sun dress for around the house or beach. Karina’s doing hers in the red material and Carmen (oldest) picked the brown paisley. It’s been awhile since i made clothes so getting back into the swing.

I’ve also started a quilt for ...
