False pretences

I'm sorry.

I've brought you here under false pretences because I'm not here today, I'm here instead with Adrianne.

Apparently I'm 'quite forthright' ;-)

I wouldn't want to waste your time though, so below is what I am slightly obsessed about at the moment. Clearly I'm late to the party on the first one which has had over 13 million views...although a fair few have been me in the last few days.







Creative passion at its very best...in my opinion of course :-)

  1. I'm commenting here, although I visited over at Adrianne's. I'm still chuckling at 'forthright' and the book review blog hop comments. I'm the first to comment here, do I get to ask a question??

  4. I've come over from your interview at Adrianne's too. I really enjoyed your interview, and very much appreciated your views. There are so many quilting blogs out there, I find it's easy to get a bit of overkill, so it takes more than just lovely quilts to get me 'following' these days. And the quilts I like to make don't necessarily have much in common with the quilts you like to make (although I love your use of so many colours/fabrics) but your 'voice' in your interview was plenty enough to make me want to 'follow' you. Hope that's come across the way I wanted it to, not easy to put into words! And I would love to make some blocks for you, but might not manage it for a monthish. I tend to use quite a lot of recycled fabric in my quilting, including old wool blankets for the batting, would that be a problem for the blocks? Do I need to get some proper batting instead?

  7. Loved the cello piece! It took me a bit too long before I realised that was the same bloke eight times…:)

  8. What a delightful interview! Thank you Adrianne and Alison!

    As an American quilter who has plunged joyfully into creating blocks for Alison's Soy Amado project, I can honestly say that it is very gratifying, and for me, addictive.

    It IS expensive to mail a block or three, but if you can get a group of friends to make a LOT of blocks, the shipping price goes way down. (I spent $75 to send 81 blocks - a virtual bargain.) Some of my tiny local guild's members donated some batting to my efforts. I am currently working on a batch of about 30 more.

    And every time I see Alison post another finished quilt, I get a really warm fuzzy feeling inside. This is social media at its best.. when someone like Alison can see a need far from home, figure out a way to help and then invite others to join her. It's been a pure delight! Bravo Alison!!!!

  9. Haha, I’m often told my middle name is fortright! Love your honesty about blog hops etc. I agree with Wonky Patchwork that it takes more these days than to show another lovely quilt we are working on. My blog is a journal of my quilting, sewing and little personal bits. No more, no less.

  12. Loved your interview and am always in awe of your soy amado project dedication. I would love you to share a pic of yourself (as others have asked) but there is also something very intriguing about your air of mystery and incognito status that somehow sharing a pic now would spoil!
