I love a Block of the Month – I mean, I REALLY love them. I will confess to having several on the go at the moment, and one of them is Girl’s Day Out. I saw this advertised on the Villavin Crafts Facebook page, and I knew at once that I wanted to do it.…

Hello All! I know I say this every time I write a blog, but where does the time go??   (……having fun completing a mystery BOM perhaps?)  It’s just about March already, hopefully we’re all still safe after germs & storms?  Quite possibly owners of more fabulous pieces of patchwork & quilting items? 10 months ago…

Sunflowers!!! This mystery is all about happy, cheerful, warmth and creativity…..I hope!! That’s certainly how I see it anyway. Sunflowers are my happiest flower (freesias my best smelliest!). Yellow is my favorite colour, it personifies ‘happy’ for me, (a warm yellow mind, I’m not into acid yellows, they jar the nerves a bit) so I…

Jo Hendy has a treat (or several) in store for quilters once again. I have tried hard to limit my Block of the Month (BOM) subscriptions, and I am a little ashamed to admit that I have some still waiting for me to start them (exactly how many is too many?) – and others that…
