Parade of Scrappy Star Blocks - Rainbow Bee

My first Scrappy Star Block for 2021!

January 2020, I started the year choosing the Scrappy Star Block (click here for Jennie's tutorial) for my bee mates to sew for me as it was my turn as Queen Bee. I sewed two sample blocks to guide the ladies, as I wanted the stars in one colour (with each star to be a different colour) and the background fabrics to be a low volume mix of whimsical prints.

Home Sweet Home Sewing


Imagine my delight when I was contacted this past summer to take part in a virtual book tour to promote a beautiful new sewing book, written by the lovely,  Helen Philipps.  I have long been a fan of Helen's sewing and her gorgeous books, so you know I said, "Yes, please!", to her kind invite.  Home Sweet Home Sewing, published this past autumn, by @tuvapublishing is bursting with a charming array of patchwork projects, ranging from an adorable pincushion to a beautiful quilt and all enticingly presented.

Simple Strappy Pencil Case

A pretty and practical solution for corralling pens and pencils!

Maybe you're like me and have a collection of notebooks and writing/drawing paraphernalia that you like to tote around? Do you find yourself searching for a way to keep things organized and ready to use?

Tote Worthy

The concealed zipper pocket on the front of the tote offers secure storage for any valuables I'm carrying, while being easily accessible. 

 Yesterday, I spent a satisfying afternoon sewing a lovely new tote bag for myself, from a design by Svetlana Sotak, from her book: That Handmade Touch.
