January 2105 Favourites on GnomeAngel.com

When January starts most of us tend to kick the new year off with a bunch of resolutions that highlight the areas that we (rightly or wrongly) think that we need to work on.

I’ve had a really great January, it’s been crazy busy, but I feel like I’ve achieved and in part it’s because of these 5 things that my January has been so enjoyable….

WHAT IT MEANS TO ME TO BE AUSTRALIAN

Today is Australia Day. The day, we as a nation, stop to celebrate who we are and it’s got me thinking about what it means to me to be Australian, and what it means to be an Australian Quilter. Today I’m going to share some thoughts on that topic (it’s a little like writing a…

HAZEL HEDGEHOG QUILT-A-LONG

It feels like it’s been awhile since I made a quilt that was just for fun and just for our little family, so in February I’m going to change all of that with the Hazel Quilt-a-Long. Elizabeth Hartmen released 3 fabulous animal block patterns last year (a fox, a whale and a hedgehog) and I was…

Naughty-cal Weekender and Naughty-cal 241 Tote made by Angie Wilson of GnomeAngel.com. Pattern for Weekender by Amy Butler. Pattern for 241 Tote by Noodlehead.

NAUGHTY-CAL NOODLEHEAD 241 TOTE

When I made my Naughty-cal Weekender Bag for Sewvivor in August last year I absolutely loved it and wished that I could use it all the time, however it’s not really practical to use a Weekender Bag as an every day bag.  So I’d been thinking about making myself a matching bag to use on…

SHE’S A RAINBOW

Did you ever have one of those quilts that you wrestled with from start to finish? This is one of those quilts for me. In much the same way that “The Feather Beast; Slayed” rose like a phoenix from the ashes after having Raylee (of Sunflower Quilting) work her magic on it, “She’s a Rainbow” has…
