The ramblings from a small quilt shop on the South Islands West Coast of New Zealand

Head Down, Tail Up


I’ve been plodding along lately trying to catch up on UFO’s and treating myself to a couple of new projects too.  After getting into the cushion making mode following the order the other week back I made another using the Cathedral Window variation. 

004This time a I used a fabric with a Maori design on it – it seemed to suit the design, but  this time I placed the blocks on point and chose to reverse the colour on just one.  Sorry about the glare on the photo – I have the cushion in the shop for sale and have it wrapped in cellophane.


Another cushion I made was designed by the gorgeous Fee of ‘Designs By Fee’ fame.  I had collected one of the far too many stitching magazines that I buy and was taken with the cushion on the cover – it turned out to be one of Fee’s.  With a little bit of stitchery and a few lengths of Robin Pandolph  leftovers – taa daa – another finish.


Then today, with the weather becoming so awful and not feeling like doing something like housework (well, why would you?) I raided the shop and acquired a couple of bits of new (to the shop) fabric.  From the cute fabrics I stitched and stuffed a little Elephant named Elmore.


Now I’m starting to get back into the groove and with DH going to be away for the next week I hope to be able to share a whole lot more.

Have a great week ahead
