Sew Mama Sew Weighted Pinchusions

I spent my afternoon yesterday making these little beauties! Wonderful little project and easy to follow from Sew Mama Sew. If you would like to make it, find the PDF file here

They are so much fun and a great present for a fellow crafter. I made one for my mother in law and one for me. Luke made birds nests with left over fibre fill and fabric. Enjoy!

Flying Geese the easy way!!!

Had share this from one my favourite bloggers ‘Sharing my Stiches’. I had seen this before and shared in Facebook but I need to keep this one handy and thought all quilters who read my blog would appreciate this great method of making flying geese!!!! Enjoy

Sharing My Stitches


I was dumbstruck when I watched this.  Making the Flying Geese Block is probably the least favorite thing for most quilters.  This makes it so easy, and it actually makes the quilt block look  three dimensional.  I can’t wait to try it.

The picture to the right, is not part of the video.  I put it on here for those of you that might not know what Flying Geese are.

Tutorial: Seashell Chime Activity!

This weekend my little one and I went shell hunting on the beach. I told him to look for shells who had holes in them so we could make a shell wind chime. He was very excited looking for shells in between running around with other kids and making castles. We brought home a good collection and washed them and left them to dry outside. So today we decided to make it together, we really had fun with this one. It is a good quick activity that helps their motor skills and also looks very cute. You can hang it any were you like, my little one wanted his to hang in his room. So here is how to make these very cute shell wind chimes.
