spring dolls quilt

Oh man I am ever so late in blogging this! The lovely AJ organised a dolls quilt swap last year, with a random draw recipient after all quilts were received and and open theme of “spring” I pulled my inspiration from Pinterest, and using this pattern¬†(pinned here)¬†that I purchased as a starting point, I extended the outside and added in […]

to us a son is given {Christmas canvas swap}

One of my favourite things about belonging to online craft group is having swaps, and having a little piece of your friends nearby. For instance, as I sit here typing, immediately to my right is a mugrug Nic made me. I think of her every time I use it, which really, is pretty damn regularly. It’s a lovely way to […]

#birthdayswap

Oh man. This was super fun. It was Car’s birthday last month, and I knew early on I wanted to make a hashtag typography collage (inspired by these tshirts by Elise Blaha).

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, […]

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 […]
