No Secrets.........

Sometimes when we do secret sewing it is easy to forget to mention it later. I have a couple of projects that I have made this month, both birthday gifts and one has now been received so I can share.

I made this embroidery pouch for a good online friend, Salley, in Sydney. Sadly we have yet to meet but our online friendship has blossomed with much in common and I know she enjoyed a special birthday last week.

I have made similar pouches now a few times and you will find the instructions in the lovely Ayumi's Patchwork Please book. Although aimed at the embroiderer I know Salley appliques and thought it would suit well for travelling projects.

Happy birthday Sal, I really enjoyed making this for you.

Recently, I taught a two day Intro to Patchwork course where the students learned the basics and used them to make a fully quilted cushion. I am still working on my second sample but decided to offer the original for sale. I have added it to my Etsy shop.

I hope all the FQ retreaters are recovering nicely after a wonderful weekend.


  1. what a lovely gift the sewing pouch is beautiful x

  2. Love your friend's birthday pouch! Can't believe that's another FQR over! Jxo

  3. Just to let you all know . . I think Sheila and I were sisters, separated at birth! Thankyou to Helen (AKA Archie The Wonder Dog) for our intro's!

    Sheila...what an amazing friend you are. I was humbled by your generosity with a gift so lovingly and beautifully crafted. Its perfection is mind-boggling, and with your equally frantic life, I am very touched with this gorgeous sewing pouch. x

  4. I love that pouch almost as much as I love Salley!

  5. Haha loving Helen's comment and thinking lucky Salley! She might just have to have another special birthday next year too!
