Top drawer

Have I mentioned my thing for drawers? I’m a bit batty about them and my ebay search is set at all times for vintage haberdashery styles, apprentice pieces and shop displays – want to see my little collection?   The tall Sylko drawers are my pride and joy, a bargain from birmingham. Anyway, why am…

Fair enough

To the vintage fair… Not as a member of the paying public no, but as a fine upstanding member of the stall holding community. I say upstanding, of course, that’s only my version… I spent most of the day bobbing up and down sitting on my chair because my foot was hurting so badly. However, peeping…

You know I like change. Well, I’ve got quite a lot to share…change is somewhat of an understatement for what’s been going on chez Stitch. Ready? Well, I’ve this far done my creative work as a hobby really, taking second place to everything else. I had a pressured job in a technical financial area and…

Who will buy?

So I finally got round to photographing and posting some more quilts on to etsy. Here is a sneak preview. Click on the link to the right for further information if you’re interested. One has already gone!

Take my breath away

I know that I am slightly weird about quilts. I feel so attached to them when they come to my door. However, this recent shipment has quite literally taken my breath away. Here are a a few initial pictures. I really don’t think I can sell the Schoolhouse one, it is absolutely gorgeous.

ocean blue

Just in today. A beautiful handstitched handquilted ocean waves quilts in baby blues. It is absolutely gorgeous.

The ice house

Stasherella’s first quilty item is up on etsy…a really unusually coloured schoolhouse block quilt. Probably late 1800’s early 1900’s, it’d be lovely in a white or pastel painted room. If you are interested please contact me with any questions. I’ve also put my basket top up. Both hard to relinquish. I hope they are loved.

All change

Did I mention I was busy? I’ve been feeling guilty about not posting on my blog. Sorry. But I’ve got to the point where every single evening I now have in my diary what I’m going to do. Is that mad? I don’t care. It works. Tonight I had a night off because the weather…

Round to it

A pictorial summary – there’s quite a lot going on but I’ve had root canal work today so in not at my most vivacious. Photos will speak for me today. Here we have: An embryonic crochet snail Some cakes for Elders French class (red, white and blue icing) A prototype simple shift dress based on…

Home sweet home

As promised, here’s the second part of my quilty purchasing odyssey. This time from the wonderful Etsy. All my quilting life i have harboured a deep love of this block, the School House block. Isnt it lovely? I’ve always wanted to either have or make a quilt with it. I made a nursery school banner…
