Free Pattern File

It's that time of the month again! Time for the release of the July pattern for the Adventurous Stars BOM I am hosting this year.

This is my Plaid Star, I love the checkerboard effect of the background on this one!
The link to the download site is at the top of my left sidebar.

Happy Stitching

A quiet month

We have house guests at the moment, my husband's parents are here for a month. 

We have been hiking lots:

6 mile Table Mountain hike
I summited Mount Muscoco a 1251 foot elevation gain:

And we also like to cycle, on the weekend I conquered Golden's Lookout Mountain:

1748 feet of elevation gain makes it a fairly strenuous cycle but a great challenge once in a while, this was only my second ever time cycling up the beast.

So the blog will be a little quiet until the oldies leave late in the month. Happy stitching!

Rainbow Scrap Challenge April/May

I combined April and Mays nominated Rainbow Scrap Challenge colours for this block:

So this is my progress so far since the challenge began in January:

I am loving how my Pentagonal Star pattern looks. It's available to buy on Craftsy if you dare try the  Y seam paper piecing pattern.
