I am really sorry for the late posting, and also I apologise in advance for what is going to be a short and sweet What's New today. I have some virus thing that seems to be everywhere (it's all over the #scrappytripalong group on instagram) and I feel like death warmed up. So no sewing for me today - just resting up with plenty of jasmine tea and snuggled under a quilt or 3.
Justine has been getting the January Sew Solids Crew January bundles ready for mailing this week. Check out her blog for details of this month's colours and if you'd like to get a monthly bundle of solids (I signed up for the 3 FQ option, it works out at under £6 a month which is a perfect little bundle of joy to arrive once a month and completely affordable).
swoon quilt with mine, a block a month for the whole year. With the leftover FQs (because 12 blocks uses 24 FQs and the stash club will give me 36) I'll decide whether to add a border or use them for the back. We'll see. Either way, I'm excited about this slow burning quilt.
The Village Haberdashery always has good stuff when I'm on the hunt for these posts.
Juggling Summer is a line that I would normally just skip over because it's not really me but I spotted someone making a quilt using it on instagram the other day (and I can't remember who) and it looked so good. I did find this on flickr in Brigitte's photostream and you can see more inspiration on her blog too.
Because I feel poorly, I'm incredibly grumpy, so I'm going to shout at you...
go to M is For Make and Buy Handle With Care and Type right now. Buy it before it goes and you miss out and get all grumpy and whine.
It's the New Year, so I imagine some of you (more organised types) will be thinking about the Spring and Summer and plotting a new wardrobe (I envy you for your organisation skills)
Alice at Backstitch has this new Megan Nielsen pattern in for a T-shirt/Sweater with a whole heap of different options. It's beginner level and it looks really good.
You can also buy the washi dress pattern, the ever popular wiksten tova and tank and to pack your new wardrobe in for a trip away, the Amy Butler weekender pattern.
Eclectic Maker are back from the Christmas break with a shop full of goodies.
Cosmo Cricket is now designing for Moda as Julie Comstock, so anything you see that is Julie Comstock is basically Cosmo Cricket. Odds and Ends is really good. It seems they don't have my favourite print of that collection in the store, but these are all fab.
Ok, that's all from me today. Time for more jasmine tea and maybe a hot bath.
I'll be back on full form next week - promise!
