New Front Page (351)

Hi Everyone, as I sit here in the sun and work on my website - I've added a few things and more monthly projects, keep me in mind the next time you'd like to proceed with a monthly block of the month...What do you think about my new front page?


Crazy Christmas BOM (317)

So, Christmas is in the air these days over at Pastimes Online because people have been hot after my Crazy Christmas block of the month kit by Lynette Anderson. This was one of our featured block of the month clubs last year - it's was a huge success then and now it seems to be hot once again.

Why? Because it's stunning of course ;)

As you saw from my most recent posts by Shannon and Robyn - who've completed theirs it's just so pretty, people are wanting to sign up again...

Well are you interested? Here's what you get in your Kit if you choose to purchase it all at once or if you'd like to do it on a monthly basis I'm opening it up again as it's just got such a renewed interest how can one resist?

What's included in this kit:

- almost 10 meters of cotton for FRONT and BACK in the Georgette Christmas line

- 3 Dupioni Silk quarters (19.5 x 27) in White, Cappuccino (beige) and Sunshine Yellow with interfacing

- all the Silk floss you will need - in 7 colours

(this floss is a dream to stitch with, it's non-separating,

twisted like a fine cord and just glides though your fabric)

- silk pins

- embroidery needles - in all sizes

- 60/8 sewing machine needles - specific for silk

- Reds, Blues, Oranges, Greens, Purples, Blacks, Whites, Browns, in hand-dyed Weeks Dye Works wool for all of the super cute appliques

- 12 Block of the Month patterns

- access to our private step by step blog posting show all of the construction steps to each block including videos to help you with the quilt as you go method.

Want one of these? It's $347 plus shipping to you -

for the ENTIRE quilt front and back all you have to supply is batting.

YEP totally complete all in one kit!

Any questions? Email me!


Butterfly Garden (305)

Okay so I'm in LOVE with this new block of the month - thanks Lori for the suggestion and thanks to all of you for voting it as one of your MOST favourites.

It's so super cute to sew together, the patchwork is pretty basic but the results are so great! I've decided to use dupioni silks for the appliques, raw edge with a basic blanket stitch...


Vintage Sewing Machines is set to start in 2012 (298)

Hi All, well it's official, here's the first bom that's been decided...

Vintage Miniature Sewing Machines ...super cute and I'm already stitching away (in between feedings which is more fun). I'm in love with these little beauties. Finishing at 8.5" square plus our super cute borders. I decided to play off of the "vintage" feel and use the wash-out feel of the serenity line of fabrics along with the hand dyed Weeks floss...sign up today here. This bom starts in January of 2012. Make this for your own Sewing Room of that of your friends:)


Block of the Month Decisions (281)


To all of you who took the time to vote based on this flyer - we are THAT much closer to making a decision...

We know for sure it will be this one:

Vintage Sewing Machines - one of my favourite for a long time - thanks Kathy B for helping me find the pattern...we will be creating this one in muted tones - washed out if you will to replicate the old and antique feel of this pattern.

The other two (I'm hoping two more) are just being stay tuned!

If you haven't voted yet please do, just download the flyer then send and email  with your choice(s) and this will help solidfy out choices.

Thanks everyone!
