A blog post...


Yes, its been a while, i have been busy though!  Painting my house upstairs has kept me out of mischief for a bit, but i have been keeping a little bit crafty.  I made my first etsy sale! Yay, a custom quilt for a lovely lady. Ive also completed another row on my daisy chain sampler.  Not real mad on the colour M but we'll see how it looks all finished.


I had a play with some cute fabrics and made this little quilt top.  I really love those Denyse Schmidt prints with the baby pink!


I also had a lovely parcel of yummy fabrics arrive, Ive been waiting very impatiently for these but so worth it.  This is some of the Children at play fabric by Sarah Jane.  She has an etsy shop with her gorgeous illustrations and she has now branched out into fabric. Im so glad!


Little boy fabrics are hard to find unless your into garish dinosaurs - i just LOVE these prints!
I can see a little boys bunting quilt in these.


...and little girls dont miss out either!

Hope you are having a fabulous Thursday!

Yay, congratulations on your first Etsy sale.
I still love the daisy chain sampler. When I decide I need to do something other than quilting I'm going to try that.
The baby pink looks so pretty with the triangles, yum.
I love the Children at Play fabric, I kept on drooling over it, but have decided I didn't need it as I have enough children's fabric in my stash, I'll probably regret it one day.

Congrats on your Etsy sale. Your work is just so beautiful. I live the sampler. It's going to be stunning when it's done. I've never had to think about fabric for boys but it dies seem the only options are not very nice. Having said that I just love those prints you show - they're perfect for a boy :)

Happy first Etsy sale!!! How exciting!! I say it every time but I love your sampler! The Children at Play fabric is very cute!! I've got the prints with bicycles, and so far resisted the others. Bunting is such a sweet idea!!

Congrats on your sale, your work is beautiful. I had been wondering what you were up to, good to know I am not the only one painting her house. That new fabric is so lovely, I can see why you snaffled a whole pile up.

That's a quite a pile of new fabric you have there and I agree the boy type fabric is very nice (and so not like garish dinosaurs)

Whooooooooo Hoooooooooo on your first etsy sale.

I love the sampler.....

Painting is the pits.

Boys are easy. Get fabrics of dinosaurs or sports and your good to go. Girls are hard to please. Not every girl is into princesses and fairy's.
