First year of blogging… and loving it!

When I first started my blog I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out – I didn’t know if I would have enough to write about and didn’t really have a plan! But I started writing and just kept going. In my mind I thought I’d write one blog post a week… but as we near the end of the year, I’m amazed at myself for having written 60..!

Although I have written mainly about my adventures in sewing and quilting, I have also written about my ups and downs and my thoughts on life. It’s been like a little diary, but one that I’m sharing!

So to summarise the year, I have listed below the posts I have published according to quilt or activity. I hope you’ve enjoyed following my journey.

Here’s hoping 2019 will be full of more creative fun!!

Quilt project: Golden Glow

Golden Glow by Melanie Vincent

Golden Glow
And my quilt is off (in the post, that is!)
My quilt is on the cover (yay!)

Quilt project: Through my Window

Through my Window by Melanie Vincent

Blue leaves (and a bit of sewing therapy)
A sewing room with a view
Quilt top finished – now for the border
And my quilt is off (in the post, that is!)
And the quilting begins… if a little slowly
It’s been a slow snow day
My quilt is on the cover (yay!)
And another quilt is off!

Quilt project: Home and Garden

Home & Garden by Melanie Vincent

Having fun exploring new ideas
In it for the long haul
My fabric stash will never be depleted
Singing while quilting… and for my wellbeing

Quilt project: Blue applique flowers

Blue Flowers by Melanie Vincent

Quilting and design… it’s all about trial and error
Feeling happy and carefree whilst singing and quilting
Flower quilt blooming slowly

Quilt project: Child’s pirate quilt

A perfect day for (hand) quilting
Pirates ahoy! Thy quilt is done!

Quilt project: O’ Little Town

‘O Little Town’ by Melanie Vincent

Another Christmas quilt coming along nicely
A star is born… in my new Christmas quilt
The heart of little town is complete
Sneaking in some hand-quilting over Christmas… will you?

Wellbeing and creative therapy

In awe and wonder
Working on a Friday? That’s foreign to me
Blue leaves (and a bit of sewing therapy)
In it for the long haul
Singing while quilting.. and for my wellbeing
Finding wellbeing and peace in the forest
Rips, tears and patching things up
Small changes, big difference

The Festival of Quilts 2018

General life & sewing

Welcome to my blog
Cozy quilts on a cold winters day
2017 Almost over
Is fabric ever wasted in patchwork and quilting?
Patience in quilting, patience in life
My fabric stash will never be depleted
Getting ahead of myself with new ideas quilting 
Why I will always need more fabric
Back from hols all refreshed… and raring to go with new quilting projects 
Quilting and design… it’s all about trial and error
Handmade thank you gifts
Rips, tears and patching things up
Having sew much fun with fabric
Small changes, big difference
A little note of Thanksgiving
Heavenly day… ahead of the chaos!
