Dear quilting friends,
I have actually been doing some mindless knitting of granny squares!
I have been waiting for inspiration for my “next big idea” and found that I just cannot sit and watch TV without doing something with my hands. I think that this is definitely a female thing! The males in my family don’t seem to have this problem and seem to mindlessly watch TV with abandon.
This month I have my bag kitset and pattern on special. I created this kitset as a bit of an experiment, but I found the work involved was just too much. I have a very limited quantity, seeing as it was a trial, so be quick.
Buying this kitset is definitely cheaper than buying everything to make it up.
Enjoy your cold weather quilting, or knitting :-), Carol
Kitset – Kiwi Tote, usually $79:
Until the stock runs out, $39. SOLD OUT
This kitset for the Kiwi tote bag includes everything, except thread. I have even included the kiwi template and a very detailed bag pattern. It is easy to make and I have very limited quantities.
And if you just want the pattern, which also includes the kiwi template, we have this on special, usually $25 now $15. Also until the stock runs out.

Friendships are sewn … one stitch at a time!
(Which is why we love to quilt!)
I have been playing with these again lately, trying out a mix of colours and patterns. Very easy to put together, I just blanket stitch over the heart shapes and the quilt top comes together very quickly. I haven’t yet tried them on the bag pattern, that would be spectacular.

These very clever set of circles allow you to add from 1/4″ to 1 1/2″ to a curved shape.
I use them when I have a hand applique pattern which notes “add a 1/4″ seam”, and also to easily extend the size of any of most template shapes. Click here to find out more, and watch the video.
I had a lot of fun playing with my botanicals with these, I got lots of interesting shapes, I then layered those shapes to make lovely 3D flowers.
