Instead of trying to match up and viagra online uk email people myself I’m going to try Elfster and let the site do it for me. Please head here if you’d like to join in our pincushion swap.

You will create a pincushion with your own hands and ship it away to someone who is sending you a new to you pin cushion as well. How fun!

You can scour Pinterest or Google for some ideas and tutorials.

Skinny pincushion

So made myself a scrappy quick little project the other day. I absolutely love things that use up scraps, the small the better. I remember the first time I made something with a ton of prints on it, one of my scrappy wallets, I was hesitant at first but once you just let go and put things together it all looks great once it’s finished.

It’s from a free pattern by Green Bee Designs, they have a free patterns section and it’s in there.

I added more sections to mine because I wanted it even more scrappy.  I rarely do things as dictated.

Happy, happy mail.

Not only did some great books arrive for me the other day, and my bff showed up with some fun stickers for me but I also got a surprise get well gift from my best yet to be met online friend Mollie.

Tinkertote madness!

I swear I am in complete and utter love of this technique and making more of these beautiful creations of Tara Rebman’s Quilt-As-You-Go: Patchwork Bags

I love using up my scraps, making them work together or just throwing whatever with whatever and seeing how it goes.

That’s how I’ve pieced the scrappy wallets I make and I love how they turn out with so many bright colours and patterns.

They look absolutely fantastic if you go the extra mile and make your own bias tape. It is time consuming and a bit finicky but the results are great.

Hand stitching the second side of the tape on is the best way to go. Keeps it really nice and tidy. But beware! Thimble recommended.

Michelle patterns sale!

I know I’ve gone on and on about Michelle Patterns but I just love her stuff so darn much (and she’s an affiliate sponsor on my blog). My iBooks shelf is over flowing with her stuff. I’ve made so many of her great patterns into fun stuff like the bracelet bag, the bucket bag, clutches,scrappy wallets, more scrappy wallets and yes, even more scrappy wallets. Still need to carve out time to finish this one, love the fabric covered button.

Sooooo she’s having a 6 year anniversary sale!

Go take a look!

Hexie addiction

Yeah I love these things.

Scraps and fun fabrics. Some of my favourite things.

Also, storing them in this fun container I found while thrifting.

Inspired by the dark side.

Well after I finished construction on this on Sunday I decided to make myself one. I used the techniques I learned in this patchwork bags course from this wonderful lady when I made this bag. Using scraps I pieced together my own fun cozy.

I even used the left over bias tape I made from the Tinkertote.

Keeps my tea pot super warm, oh and funkily cute.

Another WIP gets finished.

I finished this bag a little bit ago. It’s made with a Michelle Patterns pattern. My best friend started it when I started my own bag, we were working together. But then she left it here and so I went ahead and finished it.

It’s great fabric and the colour combination is really nice, yellow and grey, love it.

It was a fun quick project to finish and it was nice to put a smile on her face by pulling out her finished bag. Isn’t the blingy button great?

New Shop?

Ages ago I worked really hard to brainstorm a cool name for another Etsy shop.

My brainstorming, and pestering some friend, paid off and I came up with a great name for the shop. I signed up on Etsy and since it’s just been sitting there.

Waiting for me to fill it with the things I want to make for it.

And waiting.

I had planned to get to it this summer and so far, this is as far as I’ve gotten. Making the screens.

Perhaps this weekend, before school starts again, I can go insane with creativity and get it all done and launched?!

Cross your fingers form me and send some happy creative thoughts.
