Sweet Log Scrappy Bits


I've had a couple of small finishes this week and I think it has boosted my sewjo esteem. I made a notebook cover for my 'To Do' book. This one was a kit from Sweetwater Designs.

Then using the same pattern, I made another for my 'Finances' book. This time I used pre-cut squares and fabric from my own stash. Some cute Heather Ross 'Far Far Away 2 & 3' included.
I am sewing another cover for a friend's birthday.


This is a dresser runner that I am in the middle of basting today. I am going to straight-line quilt this but I am not sure exactly how yet.

QCA Feb. Bee Blocks

I think that I have received nearly all of the blocks for this month. One of the ladies was nice enough to send me her leftover scraps and I was able to use them with my new scraps and make an extra 5 blocks! 

Here they are all laid out and I am trying to decide whether to sash it or not. Opinions from the group are leaning more towards 'no' sashing. 

This week's stats:
Completed projects - 2 notebook covers, 5 QCA Feb. Bee blocks
New projects - None
On Hold - 1 custom strip quilt - will start when I receive 50% deposit , 1 Feb  scrappy log cabin quilt - once all the blocks come in
Currently in progress - 1 notebook cover, scrappy coin table runner - basted and ready to quilt, 3 dolly quilts to back (still! Am thinking of using vintage sheet fabric for these).

How did you go this week? I am linking up.


  1. Love your notebook covers, especially the Sweetwater one!

    1. Just saw where you live too - I am in Lismore:)

    2. nice to find a local quilter..and I love exploring your blog. My new many delicious quilts that I just had to pin (especially your Denyse Schmidt creations).

  2. Love the notebook covers - so lovely and bright!

    1. Thank you. They are rewarding for a few hours of work.

  3. Had to have a quick read through to find out more details about your first notebook cover - just love that Hometown fabric (I might just have to buy some). Good luck on the organising side of things and the weight loss also (getting older and having kids does super suckie things to your body at the best of times), and happy belated birthday wishes. I hit the big 4-0 later this year. Something to look forward to :0)

    1. Thanks for all those well wishes Suz. How do you find working 4 days a week? I am planning to get back into casual (supply/relief) teaching when my youngest hits Year 1. Although I am not sure how I will meet the after school pick up deadline (unless I get a job at the same school!).
