Suzy of Suzy’s Sitcom sent me a free copy of her new ebook, Suzy’s Majestic Peacock Pattern. I meant to review it over a month ago, but what with the limited internet in Texas and me injuring myself and all, I’m just now getting to it. (Sorry, Suzy!!) I’ll tell you what I really like… Read More Ebook Review: Suzy’s Majestic Peacock Pattern
Hi all! Just a quick note today to let you know I’m off to America tomorrow (so there’s lots of laundry and packing going on!) I’ll be blogging, but probably in a different way and not as often. I’ll probably blog a bit more about personal stuff, but I’ll also be blogging about the Sew… Read More Manic Monday Linky Party

…but I swear I totally deserve it. Well, maybe not totally, but I kind of deserved it. I’m nearly finished with my secret project for Sewing World Magazine (sneak peek soon!), and yesterday I took a ‘day off’ to go meet up with Fiona of The Sewing Directory. Poor Fiona didn’t really know what she… Read More So I Went A Tiny Bit Mad Yesterday…
Hello! I hope you all had wonderful weekends. Saturday was Savi’s Stagecoach play, and they did a sort of singing, dancing rendition of Young Frankenstein. Hubs took some great pics, and I’m hoping to be able to post some of them this week. Savi and Hubs spent the entire weekend miserable with colds, which I’m… Read More Manic Monday Linky Party!
Hi all. I hope you had a lovely weekend – I hit my messed-up elbow on Saturday night and it STILL freakin’ hurts. I suspect it’ll take a few days for it to heal up properly – I totally whacked it against a fan. And just so you know, big metal floor fans don’t have… Read More Manic Monday! 🙂
Ok, for those of you who tried & failed to get into the website in the past few days, because your browser said I was distributing malware, we’ve fixed the problem. That was a long, complicated sentence which reflects the long, complicated process we went through! But I learned a few things along the way,… Read More Manic Monday Linky Party!

But I bought 2 Summersville charm packs to use for huge Granny Square blocks, and the thought of throwing away all that background fabric waste was enough… Read More Mini-Tutorial: No Waste Granny Square Quilt Blocks
You know that saying, ‘When It Rains It Pours’? (WIRIP) I’m kinda starting to get familiar with it on a bodily level. BTW, this is a long(ish) personal post and I just wanted to warn you that I’m ill, so it may not even make much sense. My knees are really scooting right along and… Read More Insert *Frustrated* Swear Word Here?
So, I had yesterday’s post all set up to publish automatically. But it didn’t. First I did the predictable thing and freaked out, thinking I’d set it up incorrectly. But no, apparently other WordPress.org users are having trouble with scheduled postings with the newest edition of WP. Which is fine. Things can usually be fixed… Read More Manic…Tuesday Linky Party (?!)
