not your average quilt block…

This quilt camp gifty was one of my hardest ones to decide on. Having been to Kayscha’s place back in August for the brilliant weekend that was Camp Kayscha, you would think that would make it easier, when in fact, I found it made it harder! Miss Kayscha has a very clear vision and sense of style, and knowing how […]

A little bit of this and a little bit of that…

And shake your butt, na na na na… C’mon, don’t tell me you weren’t doing a chair boogie just then. So, moving on in the Quilt Camp gifty parade, this gifty belongs to the delightful Miss Carrose. You may recall in my previous stamp carving post, I referred to a completed stamp? Well, it was the chicken you see below, […]

the message.

┬áThe light flashed on his phone, blinking a welcome as he came through the door, and started flicking on lights. His mother, most likely. It had been three days after all, and there was bound to be something under her skin that she was just busting to tell him. Or maybe lecture him again about working too much. He set […]

I can sing a rainbow.

Remember a little sneak peek last week? Well, that little peeky belonged to this little birds nest necklace: A rainbow for the colourful Miss Bacoon. One of my quilt camp gifties, I was reluctant to reveal too much, especially the colour, as she is a rainbow girl. The quilts she creates using the whole spectrum of colour are stunning. I […]

indecisive.

I’m not sure if this counts as number ten, or number ten and eleven. With quilt camp coming up (this past weekend), I planned to make a cheesecake to take with us, which, of course, required a test run. I went shopping, collected my ingredients, then stood staring at the chocolate bars and I was hit with indecision. Did I […]

Bloggers Boogie :: Quilt Camp edition

My sides, they hurt. We sewn, we’ve crocheted, we had a vino or two, and we have laughed until we can’t breath as tears stream down our cheeks. The only think we haven’t done is get a decent amount of sleep. Quilt camp 2012 is rocking all kinds of awesome. Most of us are working on a crochet ripple blanket. […]

workin’ class gal…

Just a little boogie today, some sucker has to go working… And a new Train fave: Are you boogie-ing with more enthusiasm than me? Link up here: And feel grab to grab a button, or even a little link back would be greatly appreciated (though not mandatory if you a linking a previously published post) <div align=”center”><a href=”http://thedovenest.wordpress.com/category/music/” title=”Little White […]

shhh…

I have quite a few secret squirrel projects on the go at the minute, in the lead up to quilt camp. I just hope everyone likes them! I’ve worked hard to try and come up with something unique for each of the lovely ladies coming along, so I think they will all be appreciated at least! But it also means, […]

WIP Wednesday :: stamps

I may or may not have found a new addiction. Stamp carving. I have completed one, and am working on another at the minute. I promise I’ll show off the finished one as soon as I get a chance to stamp it up into something cute. This is my currently work in progress: I thought I was close to finished, […]

EQDQS2012 :: the reveal.

I have to say, this time, I’ve been quite impressed by Australia Post. I’ve been burnt BADLY by them in the past, but on Friday, I popped into my local, rural Northern NSW post office to entrust our national carrier of hard copy information with a little quilt that I’d been working on, and despite being told that even with […]
