getaway and catching up

I have been a busy bee these past few weeks. Juggling a move with a broken shoulder has been a little bit of a nightmare but we're getting there... slowly but surely we're getting there.

I was lucky enough to be treated by one of my Daughters, Abby. She took me away to Daylesford. I think it was an attempt to cheer me up as it was very soon after my fall. We had a lovely night away where we ate beautiful food, drank some lovely wine and got pampered.

Can you tell the desserts were a real favourite of mine?

The weeks since my getaway have been a bit of a whirlwind. I do remember to take photos of things around me but I have been struggling to find the time to blog about them.

 Clare from my Thursday class has finished her Parterre and doesn't it look great?

Lucy's girlfriend Kath came along to Jodie's Donkey class and was the only person to finish hers in the day.

Jodie will be back October 1st to teach another class. This time it's her gorgeous Elephant pattern. Please call the shop if you'd like to come along. Places are limited!

This lovely Liberty project appeared in the shop and I couldn't resist a photo.

I could keep going with photos I've snapped around the shop but I might save them for another day.
Hope this post finds you all well!

Don't forget to visit us in our new shop next week. Details are online at

Hi, I have been to your website to look for the elephant class with Jodie, but it wasn't there? Will it be the same price as the Donkey one? What does the cost include? Will there be other costs involved? Thanks.

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 3

Hello friends,
Half way into this quilt and with every stitch I fall more and more in love. With each block completed, I drag all my blocks out again and lay them out. I posted this image recently on Instagram (@lucycarsonkingwell) of my 'Design Floor' to gauge where it's all heading and it's looking okay!!

Delilah has been a test - I have learnt many new skills and it is definitely the most technical quilt I have taken on to date... but it's not hard! The templates are fantastic. I swear working with acrylic templates makes it quite challenging to go back to temp-plastic! These templates are ensuring my blocks come out correct, every time.
Month 5 brought us North Star. "Woo hoo. Straight lines!" I hear the masses cheer as they open their mail!
I knew it was time to start focusing on other colours other than pink and aqua. I tend to gravitate towards these two colours because they seem to go with everything to me... especially in the Liberty of London f…

A little eye candy

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!
