PICKLEBALL LOVER from Made By Marney

As summer approaches, I am anticipating playing my newest passion in the park, Pickleball. All winter I have beaten the blues by socializing with 8 friends at indoor pickleball, while wearing masks.

I even sewed matching “pickle masks” for our teams. But I can’t wait to get back outside and play at some of the local courts in our city parks.

So when my son Brady suggested I create a Pickleball Gnome, I knew he was absolutely right. How had I forgotten to make a gnome doing my favorite sport?

Pickleball Gnome Potholders

You can get both patterns as ...

Easter Gnome from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

Easter weekend is just around the corner. March has just flown by. It's hard to believe that a year ago we went into Covid lockdown and hubby started working from home. We have developed a nice work routine over the last year. I lost my office to hubby but I have enjoyed working from the kitchen table and watching the birds and walkers as they go by. I have also enjoyed having lunch with hubby everyday. He went into work yesterday and the house was too quite. So lockdown has been a blessing in disguise. Oh, enough of me ...

A Lucky Gnome from Quilt Doodle Doodles


 I just realized that St. Patty's day is tomorrow and I have no decorations except for a tinsel shamrock that I have on my front door. So I spent the afternoon in my sewing room creating a sweet gnome that's a little bit Irish. It's a fun fusible applique design and I really enjoyed making it. I bet if you dig thru your fabric you can find some green.... leprechaun green fabric. I made my leprechaun with a white beard, but a red/orange beard would be very cute too! I used fabrics from my Marcus Fabrics ...

Be My Valentine Gnome from Quilt Doodle Doodles

 

When I put away all of the Christmas decorations this year, I decided to leave my gnomes out to decorate the house for the rest of the winter. I love gnomes and actually leave a couple up all year round. Gnomes remind me of my dad, he had a set of gnomes that stood in the front of the family home for years. Dad was also 100% Norwegian. So when ever I see a gnome, I think of dad. Well, I just had to make up another gnome design for Valentine's Day. I'm thinking of putting this one ...

Gnome in Love from Quilt Doodle Doodles

 

~ Gnome in Love ~

Since I've cleaned up my sewing area, I have been having fun messing it all up again! I had purchased some brightly colored polka dot towels just recently and the red towels just screamed to have a gnome put on them. So I drew up this adorable gnome for Valentine's Day. It's just around the corner! This is a larger design, it measures 8" x 10" when done. With the larger size it would be a great design for a beginner to applique. This gnome design is an easy one to make in an ...

12 Days of Christmas, Day 1 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

 


Day 1

Welcome to the first day of Christmas! I would love to share with you my fabric gnomes. These are fast and fun to do! I made 10 of them this year to give as gifts to family and friends. I am particularly fond of gnomes because they remind me of my dad. He had a beard and mustache and a mischievous glint in his eye. He loved to garden and was 100% Norwegian. My dad had a set of garden gnomes that adorned the front of their home for years. I smile every time I see a gnome ...

Gnome for the Holidays: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Gnome colour board at Clever Chameleon

Quilt, quilt as fast as you can!

A surprise package of quilting-friendly weather arrived here at Arkaroola yesterday. You’d never know it now, but the week started out with days of 37C (99F), with severe wind and dust storms. Some poor school holiday campers in the caravan park even had to down their tents and book emergency accomodation in the main village; it was simply that YUCK. But then yesterday a cold front rolled in and now it’s raining. Today’s predicted maximum is 14C (57F)! I know, crazy, right?! Spring!
