Rotary Cutters Illustrated (er… filmed?) – UPDATED*

I have about 8 Rotary cutters in my collection. From cutting circles, wave/pinking patterns, to using different sizes for different types of projects, etc. Through the 45mm family of cutters, I explain how each cutter is used and discuss the ease of replacing/changing the blades. Pardon the background ‘noise’ as my boy was playing with […]

Gone quilting

Been sewing more than blogging. Good thing, I say. And in a bid to clear out more space, I revisited my oldest quilting WIP – the beginner quilt that I started at Quilts and friends in late 2006. The quilting stitches vary across the quilt – the earlier quilting were longer and the most recent […]

A Quilt waiting to happen

I think the my ‘domestic instinct’ was super strong when I was pregnant with my son in 2006. After my ‘pre-natal’ holiday with my hubby in Dec, I signed up for a quilting class with Bridgette Lee from Quilts & Sew Forth. It was all very exciting and fun! By the time the class started […]
