Necessity is the mother of Invention

Lovely Elizabeth has been testing some patterns for me and I have loved the results.  The other day she had a dilema - what to do when the fabric you are using for the hair is not going to be enough to finish the block - well just adjust the pattern to fit the fabric that you have.  Let me introduce Prarie Dawn - the latest in my Sesame Street collection.  You will have a choice of 2 version - curly hair or straight hair.  I love them both.  Thanks Elizabeth. You can find both version on the Sesame Street page of this website.

Prairie Dawn Version 2

Late breaking news Elizabeth just finished Slimey as well.  Here he is - he looks just wonderful.

Sewing as fast as I can

As per yesterdays post our special Blues Clues project is well under way.  This is todays effort - it is not much as I am still quite sick with some horrible virus/flu.  Patterns will be added in the next day or so.  If you can help sew any blocks please contact Jennifer over at Fandom in Stitches.

I'm here - where is Blue?


Magenta is Blue's best friend from school. She looks exactly like Blue except she is magenta with magenta-colored spots. Magenta likes photography and making macaroni picture frames.
Although still going strong with my Sesame Street Collection I had to respond to a special request we received at Fandom in Stitches a couple of weeks ago.  A wonderful grandmother wants to create a Blues Clues Quilt for her sick Grandson.  I have designed many along with Jennifer (from Fandom in Stitches and Sewhooked) and Lilja (from  We still need people to test these patterns - so let me know if you can help.  Magenta can be found on the Blues Clues page of this blog and soon on fandom in stitches.

Thanks to Celine for testing my pattern for me.

Little Bird and Kami

We have Bird Bird now let me introduce Little Bird from Sesame Street. 

I have another friend helping me test patterns and according to her she is only a beginner in the world of paper piecing. Her name is Karolina and she is from Poland - all I can say is she did an amazing job.    Karolina also has her own blog, where you can see some of crafy endeavours.

Celine has also sewn another wonderful sample for me - Kami.  Kami appears on the Nigerian and South African versions of Sesame Street.  Her character is HIV positive due to a blood transfusion she received as an infant.  She was introduced to foster understanding of those with AIDS or were HIV positive.

Kami has made appearances at UNICEF events, at the Peabody Awards in 2005, several Sesame Workshop Benefits and the United Nations for Worlds AIds Day.

You can find Little Bird and Kami on the Sesame Street Page or at Fandom in Stitches.

Johnny Depp

After a significant amount of time with no phone or internet I am back on track.

I feel a bit like Captain Jack - "I'm having an idea".  How about some more blocks of Johnny Depps wonderful characters.  There are so many - thinking - Mad Hatter, Willy Wonker, Sweeney Todd, Edward Scissorhands, Ichabod Crane and Tonto from the soon to be released Lone Ranger.  Here is a sneak peak of fun to come. Can't wait until I have a bit of time to sew him.  For those who have not seen the press releases this is Johnny Depp as Tonto - what can I say - it's pure Johnny Depp.
