My name is Collette and I am a quilter from Scotland. I have been a patchworker and quilter for over a decade and love to share what I have been making here.

A productive morning!

What a horrible, miserable day it is here.  A day to be in the house!  I have been busy. At last found some energy to sew again.  So cut, ironed and attached the front of my binding to my table runner all with the wee one at nursery!   I am so pleased.

The back is by no means perfect but needs a little wash and quick tumble dry and should be fine I am hoping.

So tonight I hope to hand sew most of the back of that binding!

That is if I can stop myself from throwing myself into this ..............................

I knew what it was straight away of course!
Woohoo!  Arrived after only 2 days on super saver free delivery as well.  So I cannot wait to delve into this.  I will, of course, be reporting back on what I think of it.  Although I am sure I am going to love it.  I can feel it in my bones!

Does anyone else get a kind of nervous anticipation when they get a new craft book or the latest copy of British P & Q? Like I want to read it but can't bear to have read it and be done with it????? Or maybe I am just strange!


  1. Very productive! Well done you - now don't get too stuck into that book and forget the school run ;)

  2. Know what you mean exactly.

  3. Love the book reveal. But, I love the table runner even more!!! And yes, I just received a new sewing book and keep thinking "but once I open it...I will devour it and that will be it!" Ridiculous but true!
