Second attempt at an ITH quilt for a dolls house. This time I've stitched thin wire into the edges so it looks "draped". I've also included pictures of the bedroom curtains , some 12th scale knitting and a rag rug.
I was challenged to make a dolls house quilt with hexagons "in the hoop" of an embroidery machine. This is my first. It measures 10cm by 12cm and the hexagons are coloured with Inktense pencils. The major problem with dolls house quilts is that they
I'm supposed to be reorganising my sewing room but I just couldn't not sew! These are my attempts at colouring in with Inktense pencils. Rose is the current free design at UT and the scissors were from EL. I have no idea what I will do with them!

This is what has been keeping me busy for the last few days. I began with a Tilda charm pack which I had had for ages and some Bomull from Ikea. I made up a piece of patchwork with alternate squares, big enough to go round me with a bit extra . I layer
Quilting with rulers. I'm hopeless at free motion quilting so I thought I'd try rulers. They came with instructions to make a case to keep them in which was a sampler of the templates. I'm not sure if I'll ever be happy with my efforts! For my next
My sister has asked me for some applique sheep designs to use with tweed. These are my first attempt. I didn't have any tweed for the faces so I needle felted some real fleece to some felt and used that. It does give it a 3D look which I like. I used twi
