January has been a busy one!

So crochet, baking and cake eating has been called for! 
Fell off the Primal wagon with cake but boy it was good! 

This is 'Bella protesting, if I have a hook in my hands she isn't getting her daily quota of fussing and as her chief minion I should be fussing not hooking! 

I've also joined back up to the 3x6 Sampler Bee I'm in one of the star hives so thought I could do with some inspiration mosaics

These photo's aren't mine, I just really like them! If one belongs to you and you would like me to remove it please do let me know and I'll do it straight away!

and how about this one for colours :D

So I'm playing with star patterns and trying to work out which one I'll go with. I'm thinking start simple and work from there! 

I do enjoy sewing up trial runs as any blocks that I like can be used in the quilt Win - Win! 

I finally added the binding onto my giant star quilt, if you follow my flickr stream you will already know this is taken on my kitchen floor - turns out the quilt is larger than my available floor space! UK daylight is non-existent at the moment so this is the best I can do until we get a little sunshine. 
If anyone knows the person that thought to blow up this block into a quilt sized monster could you please let me know so I can credit them.

My other WIP is another Bloom, this time all in yellows

At some point today I'm thinking I'll get it basted to it's top...if i'm really lucky I might even get the quilt basted. As this one is going to be a king size quilt I added another round of petals, I didn't want it looking lost in all of that space.


  1. All of your WIPs look fabulous! I am completely in love with your crochet. Those colorful ripples are gorgeous!

  2. Gorgeous projects - I can't wait to see more of your stars!

  3. Gorgeous WiPs! After quilting in England over the holidays I now understand how difficult it is with the gloomy days and lack of daylight. You're doing well!

  4. That yellow is stunning - I can't wait to see more.
    And cake is a good enough reason to fall off the wagon - life is short, eat the cake first.


Chat away - I enjoy reading comments and will respond here or by email :)
