Two Years Later…

Two years ago, on this very day, I found the guts to start writing a blog. I was nervous, unsure and a little bit scared at the thought of writing and publishing my own quilty work on the internet. But I was looking for a challenge, an expressive medium and a chance to reach out […]

Busily Quietly Quilting

Uh-Oh! It’s been so long since I last blogged! Well, just a little under two weeks to be exact but there’s like being a tad over dramatic about these things!. But I do promise that I’ve been working very hard over the last couple weeks. For starters, I’ve made another video! (Yay, go me and […]

University: Killer of Creative Dreams!

This is the reality of my life… When I much rather be doing this… Or this… Or even just this… Unfortunately, the on slaughter of mid semester essays and assessments have all but killed my creative dreams and mojo and instead have turned me into a Microsoft Word zombie! Last Tuesday night I was able […]

Quilty Textures & Giant Hexies!

Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted! Life just seems to pull you in all different directions and it’s usually in the opposite direction to where you want to go! I’ve been half procrastinating and half actively quilting the quilt I intend to enter the Sydney Quilt Show with. I’ve sent off my […]

Love Affairs

I love Hexies. There hasn’t been a day that’s gone by this year that I haven’t made one; I’ve either been tracing and cutting out cardboard templates, raiding my scrap fabric boxes for usable sized fabrics or scrupulously sewing a little hexie to another, creating yet another project to soothe my hand sewing lust. And […]

A Convenient Side Project

Hexies: they’re the most wonderful hand and head project to under take during the insanely hot summer days we’ve been experiencing here in Sydney! Over the past week or so I think I’ve churned out at least 150ish of these little six-edge beauties! This little robot hexie just has to be my favourite… This was […]

Whoa! Whatta Scorcha!

As I swelter in the hot days of an Australian Summer, my ever-continuous need to keep my hands (and head) busy with a sewing project hasn’t let up! With no ‘official’ quilt on the go at the moment, my interest was taken by a quilt that caught my eye in the latest issue of a […]

One Year Down…

Yes, that’s right! Today is 3and3quarters: A Quilters Blog 1st birthday! A whole year has past and so much has happened within those 52 weeks. This week I took a reflective look back at the posts I’ve written since day one, reminiscing on past quilts I’ve made and given away as well as the endless […]

A Perfectly Honest Blog….

Okay, I need to be perfectly honest. I haven’t done any real sewing (that by which I mean on my sewing machine) in almost – get ready for it – 3 weeks! *I feel a fainting spell coming on* As I sit and type, I can’t quite believe it’s been that long since I’ve sat down […]

About: Everything & Inbetween

So much has happened since my last blog date with you all – I left my job, started a new one, said goodbye to old friends and hello to the new, finished one quilt, started another AND lived the rest of my life in-between! I’ll admit it’s hard to find the guts to leave something […]
