Light At The End Of The Tunnel

Ive had a very busy week finishing up the last of my small projects for my new venture for 2014.  Its been a massive task and Im finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  Lots of different projects but they will all tie in together :)

I had lots of fun working on this little 2" heart border. A little bit of work but very effective.
And this fun and simple owl applique.  Just a few finishing touches to this one and all my projects are complete.  Lots of pattern writing, photo taking etc before I can finally say that this venture is complete.  Cant wait to share all the projects with you in early January :)

A Challenge

As soon as Maddi saw these gorgeous "My Sunshine" fabrics by Zoe Pearn, she fell in love with them. Apparently (according to her) its time I made her a new quilt :) and as always she set me a challenge.
Her brief was a fully pieced quilt, no flowers, no stars, something pretty, something different and could it possibly have some relevance to Dr Who (shes a huge fan)..........yeh right, no worries lol
But I love being challenged so I worked on a few ideas before designing a pattern that she really loves and it pretty much fits her brief :) and I will be releasing this pattern to my range :)
Now just to find the time to get much going on here, a massive deadline looming, a quilt top screaming for attention, patterns that need to be written and ideas that need to come to life quickly!! It was beginning to overwhelm me so I spent the day writing lists and action plans and taking to time to breathe and look at how much I have actually achieved in the last few months, which Im excited to share!
Hopefully it wont be too long till I can attack that stack of yummy fabrics and begin :)

Fairground- Half Way Point

I have finally reached the half way point with my upcoming design, "Fairground". Im so pleased with how its looking and Im hoping that the last half goes a little quicker. Heres a look:
 Im trying to focus all my attention on it but I also have other little projects that really need to be finished:
 Loved working on this little Valentines Day project, simple, quick and very very pretty.
And a little hand stitching at night, or pattern writing all these small projects. Enjoying where this new venture is taking me :)
