September Swapping and Sewing

During the last couple of weeks – yeah I want to know where they went too – I’ve been getting my swap projects together.

For the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap,  I turned these scrappy blocks…

…into this pencil case with a “warm” colours side,
warm colours
and a “cool colours” side.

I love this interior, my swap partner will always know where it came from!

…and sent off these lovely scraps as part of the swap too!

Miss Bee had a 13th birthday to go to. We know this family love handmade and heartfelt, so we had fun making this “Whimsy Wallet” pattern that I picked up from the 
Mad Quilters Gathering a few weeks ago.

The DSDQ Swap isn't due till the end of September, but I just couldn’t wait after I found this tutorial
…here’s a look at the unfinished quilt top…would you be happy to get this? It will end up 14” square.

The last bit of this post is for Cas
Rand cushion
...but I think she’s going to win this little knit-a-thon! (and she hasn't mis-read the pattern rows like I have, but there was no way I was going to undo the rows, so the top part of the cushion will have the stripes deliberately "wrong" as well, so I don't run out of this beautiful yarn)

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...


  1. Had to come over and see what else you've been up to after I saw your swap quilt on Flickr, it's just gorgeous!!
    "Mad Quilters Gathering"? Sounds like you'd fit right in ;)

  2. I notice I'm not on your blog list :(

  3. Glad to see you have been busy with your craft while you have been AWOL from Blogland. Love all the things you have been doing especially that little quilt. x

  4. hahaha, loving the cushion :) i too wouldnt have undone the knitting. basically cos i would totally fail at picking up the stitches!! love the little scrappy bits :)will post my progress soon :)


Nice of you to take a peek over the fence. It's lovely to meet you. Do come in, have a cuppa and a chat. I will talk back...
