Have A Great Week!


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Yesterday and today we actually saw the sun for a little while and it has felt the tiniest bit like Spring.  Of course this is before the four days of rain and colder temperatures and snow in parts of the Country!!!

Saturday I managed to get a day of sewing in and I tackled the second block of the BOM “It’s a Wild Life”! It was applique and this is not really one of my strengths but I had a go and I think it turned out okay.  My only comment is this quilt is going to be huge as the blocks are really big!


These are the maple leaf blocks for February.

Marchs Its a Wild Life BOM

Here is the applique block for March from Sew Incredibly Crazy.


Here is my effort!  I don’t think it looks bad at all really.  I decided to use the HeatnBond that you don’t have to sew afterwards as doing the pieces were enough for me and it looks okay but it reminds of a toy when I was little and I don’t know if you all remember it.


It’s called Fun Felt now but it used to be called Fuzzy Felt and I loved it!!  Creating pictures by placing fluffy pieces on a fuzzy background and then taking them off and doing something completely different.  Well placing the applique pieces on my background felt just the same, tee hee!!!!

Yesterday we went to see Owen as it was his First Birthday on Saturday.


The Boys have been wanting to buy him Thomas The Tank Engine things since he was born so this was ideal.  Youngest gave him his First Thomas Train and Owen loved it.

DSC_0464Eldest and Girlfriend gave him a book of the Thomas Stories and Evalyn was also very interested!


DH and I got him this musical ball with animals on which was quite appropriate as they all went to Chester Zoo for the day on Saturday!  We also got him some more clothes which his Mummy had requested!


Here they both are on Owen’s quilt with Thomas.


Evalyn also finally got her big girl quilt for her bed!!!  She loved it.

It is going to be a busy old week and shortened as we have Friday off and Monday of next week.  Youngest finishes tomorrow for two weeks holiday and Eldest has some time off too and he and Girlfriend are coming for dinner on Easter Sunday.  With the weather being predicted to be not good the attic tidying looks on the cards and I will be supervising with the help of Girlfriend whilst DH and Eldest are doing the heavy lifting.  However I know what one problem will be; Eldest will get distracted by everything coming out and start sorting things and looking at things and we will probably get nothing finished!!!!!

Have a Great Week Everyone.

Hugs, Susie xx

    The weather is interesting this year, to say the least! Yesterday afternoon it started snowing…but the sun was still shining too! We are supposed to hit close to 70 by the weekend!! You are doing well on the BOM blocks. You do know that fusible is not forever. The only applique I will do is fusible and it must be sewn down to stay…either blanket stitch by hand (not my favorite) or by machine with either a blanket stitch or straight stitch. I actually had to put a finished quilt back on my longarm frame and quilt some more on fusible where the edge lifted up because I didn’t nail it down well enough when I quilted it – the round wolf quilt on my avatar. It is a wall hanging, never washed and this was after it came home from its first quilt show, so it was new and not roughly handled. You could always pop it in the mail to me and I’ll sew those pieces down by machine and send it back to you! Have fun with the attic cleanup and good luck keeping eldest on task!!

    Happy Birthday to Owen! He is just adorable and appears to have made out quite well for his birthday! Love Evalyn’s quilt! It’s beautiful and we love your applique block too, Miss Susie! You did an outstanding job!
