A long time between drinks!

.................And I'm back in the room!


So where have I been?  Last year I went back to uni to complete a post-graduate qualification in teaching.  To say that it was a grueling, unforgiving year would be an understatement, but I am back now and ready to re-enter the sewing room and fluff around with fabric!

Thank you to everyone who emailed me last year to check that I was ok - it meant a lot to me.


During the year I had many requests for my Jewel Box pattern.  So here it is.  As usual it is free to download and is fully supported by my husband's fantastic CAD diagrams.  I have named the pattern 'Sparkle' and you can access it by clicking here, or by clicking on the photo of the quilt on the right of the screen.  I hope you enjoy it!




Over the coming weeks I will be adding a few more patterns for free download.  These will mostly be patterns that I have had published in magazines over the past couple of years, so keep an eye out for them.

I promise it won't be so long between posts next time!  I even have some sewing to share with you.

Until next time,

Shontelle.

    First of all, at all times I used the soccer teams themselves as a starting point.
