New Quilt


How the time fly’s! Been busy with Instagram and having a good time with posting pictures. Touch of a button and it’s all done in seconds.

Apart from that I’ve been working on a new quilt for a block of the month. I put together some paper pieces and found a good place for them.

On this quilt. No name yet.

Good day to sew as it’s pouring with rain here in Auckland.

Until next time,

Linda :)


Bird Walk Cushion


I enjoyed making this cushion but had forgotten about it until it arrived back in the post. Homespun always take photographs in lovely settings. The photos were taken at a place called The Whalers Cottage, Hyams Beach NSW. A lovely place to sit and sew!





I did a smaller version on a linen background.

There are lots of lovely projects in this issue of Australian Homespun. I love this pattern Japanese Ice Cream by Chris Jurd.  A lovely scrappy quilt.

Until next time,

Linda :)


Echino Linen Cushion


Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. Been sewing in between cooking and eating Christmas cakes. A bright blue sky here today so I expect a lot of us will be heading to the beach for a long walk!

Love this linen fabric, it’s lovely to sew with. Although it’s a great weight for cushions I still put some iron-on batting on the top and quilted it a little. Mainly because I like the look.


I cut open a feather pillow for this cushion and made an insert…probably best to do it outside in the garden. A real messy job but well worth it.SANY0816

Sewing Project


Merry Christmas to everyone who reads this blog and to everyone else as well! I’ve started a new block of the month for next year, for All Things Patchwork. It has all sorts of techniques in it so it’s fun to do. A couple of sneak peaks.
