Okay so I haven't ....

... cleared up my sewing room yet but I will tomorrow.  I know I've said that before but this time I really will because I'm desperate to get sewing again and I can't whilst my room is in it's current state.

But I wanted to share this with you, if I have any readers left after a two month hiatus. Well I know I have one at least.

I saw a SAL advertised via following Craft Buds Blog which is Lindsay Connor's blog that it starting in January 2014.  I love blogs, don't you???  Not just mine but other peoples too so that I can see what I really want to make.

And some of these quilts, if not all of them, are totally gorgeous malorgeous.  Go on and have a look you know you want to.


I have a list of what I am going to do after my sewing room is in a fit state and here it is:
  1. Catch up with my bees 
  2. I really want to start sewing this the Marcelle Quilt and I have bought the book, albeit the eBook so I have to download the patterns - no big deal and it was way way cheaper than the printed book too
  3. I want to start this bee and make at least 2 quilts from the Modern Bee book
  4. I want to start the Farmers Wife quilt
  5. I want to start the Tula Pink quilt too
  6. I almost forgot I want to do The Feather QAL as well.  Boy I will be up to my neck in quilting but I LOVE it!!!  It's such a cool quilt and what's more it's paper pieced which I love doing.
You can see my favorite books here where the above quilts come from and you can look inside each book (I hope):

It isn't very often that you will hear me say I love and adore a quilt book once I actually get it and look through it properly.  But these books are in a league of their own and are the ones that I truly love and adore and nobody is paying me to say this.  

In fact when I clear out my sewing room tomorrow there are going to be quite a few that bite the dust because I don't love them and if I don't love them I'm not keeping them - so away they shall go.  I won't be selling them because it's too expensive to mail and my name isn't Amazon!

I forgot to put that I'm going to be using my stash for this coming year.  I did order some fabric today (it as 1/2 price) but I'm not buying any more - NO MORE FABRIC.  I have enough for England, Ireland and all surrounding countries.  I NEED NO MORE FABRIC!!!  And some is heading for eBay or somewhere else to sell it me thinks.  

Well that's all from me until tomorrow after I have cleared up my sewing room.  

See you soon

  1. Sounds like a plan....I did my 12 month plan on my blog today and gonna scrap bust while doing it and NOT buy more fabric!

  2. Patti, Do you have a senior center in your town? If you do you could donate your quilt books to them. Quilt guilds are often very pleased to receive quilt books and magazines as well. Just a thought. Merry Christmas!

  3. I havent sewn since my daughter moved to Texas this past May. I have changed my blog name 3 times. Now we are moving and everything is such a mess but I dont care. Next year may be better, I dont know. I will take one day at a time. You do the same and enjoy your holiday.


I absolutely LOVE it when you leave a comment and I read each and every comment and try to reply to you all.
