I love the start of a New Year.  Possibilities are endless! (Except….when you try to sew in a zipper, or do a fancy seam and realize, uh oh.  This might be a little more challenging than I thought.) So I am going to pick one skill a month or so and totally work through it, as much as I can. Starting with small projects and setting goals for big projects, incorporating the skills learned as we go! Who wants to join in?     Let’s share what we learn & make!…

Planning the Year

I’m an Aries. So, I almost always bite off more than I can chew. Usually, anyway. I start out with grandiose plans and then have to scale back somewhat. I like to make lists to help me keep focused, and I usually put easy stuff on there that I’m always going to accomplish…like………… “Pet Cats” …”Make Coffee”….you get the picture. So, this year is going to be the year that I slow down and focus a little more. Focus on friends, in person, not always online. Focus on building skills,…

Knitted Infinity Scarves

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….infinity scarves are a HOT item right now.  In fact I’m surprised it took us all so long to catch on; living through a Canadian winter you practically wrap a sleeping bag around your head to keep warm…(not really) but a circular scarf with no end that you wrap and wrap…with no ends flapping around…genius!! I have an Etsy Shop WonderbunnieDesigns, and I have had a heck of a time keeping it stocked with scarves. They are all knitted by me, with…

I love to read.One series I have loved loved LOVED for years is Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” series.  When I was a kid, I spent my summers at the library, scouring the aisles for new stories and characters to take me away…. and as an adult I *still* love to read; however when I’m sewing, it’s easier to listen to audiobooks. And one series I have loved loved LOVED for years is Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” series. Ahhh Scotsmen. Kilts. Bodice Ripping. Time Travel. Romance. Intrigue. History. A great mix. And now,…

Update & Happy Mardi Gras!!!!

Lots going on here at The Quilt Cave. Christmas was lovely, gifts exchanged and everyone enjoyed the Big Turkey Dinner. (That I nearly dropped on the floor, but that’s another story a la Mr. Bean). I haven’t had much time for sewing, we are in the process of selling the house and so, must keep everything contained and neat and orderly. *Snort* I do have a few WIPS (of course) and plenty of UFOS…. A new favourite full sized WIP ! I did finish a whole bunch of Bloomers however…
