Posting old favourites...

Not much sewing getting done, but as it's the last day of winter....yay!.... I thought I'd repost some old favourites.

Lovely and fresh, ready for spring. This has been hand quilted, looks great on my table...
1930's reproduction  fabrics, perfect for spring..
A favourite cushion...I love cushions..❣️

Spring Harvest...my own design, working out from the centre ....loved designing this, challenging myself with each border.
Oh to have that same inspiration, motivation from back then...
Spring tomorrow, enjoy....🌹

Work in Process...

It's been a stormy weekend, so sewing was in order.   Loved working on a little quilt for my dear GGD, whose seven months old already and sitting up...so precious.

Had fun whipping together this little pretty with left over fabrics from other projects....feels so good to use up some stash. The pinwheels and Pooh Bear fabrics were left over from other baby quilts....


A few more of my Cross and Crown blocks pieced....love this, need to spend more time on it. I'm looking forward to hand quilt this lovely...


This is my evening paper piecing project, getting reacquainted with some old CW favourite fabrics, enjoying fussy cutting and seeing it grow. A scrappy cream background lets the other jewel CW fabrics shine....

Sorry if the photos are big, I'm having trouble sizing them on this app...

Happy stitching...🌹

Cross and Crown...a little progress..

A little more progress on this lovely. Just piecing a few at a time as the mood takes me..

Loving this, may have to keep this one for myself...



I'm just cutting and prepping a few at a time...ready to snatch a few moments here and there..


Working my way through this little stack of stash, and more..🤗

We're getting lots of rain, great for playing time in my sewing room..
Have a lovely weekend...🌹

Love this...Cross and Crown..



Love this... been a while since I've come across a quilt design that was love at first sight....and inspired to start on straight away.

Easy and a pleasure to piece.....These three blocks pieced just this morning.    

The blocks will be sashed with the background fabric, with red corner stones...It's a free pattern from McCalls called " Cross and Crown" by  Sandra Clemons.

Trying so hard to just use fabrics from my stash, but I only have a FQ of the beautiful red Fusion corner stone fabric...., so we'll see how big it ends up....


It's so cold here today, hope the sun shinning where you are...🌹

A Finish....

It's been so long since I've posted, I've almost forgotten how to use this app.
Here goes, hope this works! 



I haven't been doing a lot, but I do have a finish...
I think I started this in April, loved working on it. Here it's displayed on my old treadle sewing machine, with a few treasures.
I was going to hand quilt it, but poor Susie was needing a play. She was so sweet and played along beautifully.

I never know what to quilt, then go back to what works best for me!



This is what I'm working on now, love fussy cut paper piecing...

Have a lovely weekend..
Stay safe...🌹
