Website Shop Page and Round the World Quilt Making!

Well what a week! My site has been ‘down for maintenance’ since last Sunday whilst I uploaded my products to my website shop page and sorted out the legal text you have to have about Distance Selling Regulations! It’s not that onerous a task but it sort of takes over and it does become tiring and long drawn out as I can’t spend too long on the laptop without too much pain. Anyway it’s now up and running thanks to Jon at Brill Skills!

Whilst uploading images and text for the shop I have also been making things for my stock. I really miss making things if I leave it too long! I have been wanting to do a ‘trip around the world’ quilt for ages after seeing pictures of them on pinterest. So here is my first attempt – it’s not sewn up completely, this is just the 4 panels which form the ’round the world quilt’ pattern. It’s a very easy quilt top to do as long as you are very careful when sewing the strips together! unpicking half a block is no fun at all – how do I know that? 😉

And here are 4 panels with applique in the lovely red gingham and pink and cream roses fabric left over from my Abakhan project. Fabric was courtesy of Will Abakhan and hopefully you will soon see some of my project work on the Abakhan website!

So that’s about it – I did also start on a doorstop using a pattern from a craft magazine but that isn’t quite finished either! Maybe I should just actually complete one thing before starting the next? But where’s the fun in that eh? 🙂

Hope you are all enjoying the amazing mini summer! I’m afraid I’m a killjoy here – I have had enough of it and want to get my leggings, boots and winter dresses out! Anyway I’m off over to Handmade Harbour as usual now – see you over there?
