Knitters Pride Review

Recently, I was sent some different kinds of hooks from knitters pride. I was fortunate enought to use the below set in my class for my students to see and feel and compare these with the crochet hooks we have been using. I would love to provide my honest opinion as a crocheter I crochet a lot in the night while watching Tv. I do a lot of testing too for a particular designer and always my hands do get tired from the hooks I use, however I must admit I am in love with these crochet hooks. They are so nice and comfortable...I am totally in love with it. I am planning on using hook from their other series and as I do will be posting pics soon. I highly recommend these hooks and think everyone one who crochets must give it a try. Let me be honest if you use aluminum hooks getting used to these may take a while however as soon as you get a grip of these you will not turn back to those....I have some that I would love to do a giveaway so you can try. I am trying to see if I can arrange for some other prizes so we can have a giveaway just before Christmas..woohoo are you excited..I am. So wait for my next post by end of November for the giveaway.

  • Single ended aluminium crochet hooks with sturdy yet soft grips
  • Color coded grips, unique for each size
  • Perfectly smooth silver finish
  • Thoughtfully packed sets of most frequently used sizes, in Fluorescent Green faux leather case with see through vinyl

FQS exclusive aurifil box review and update.

I have been really busy lately for couple of projects for Christmas charity, my health and my little one who just turned one always keeps me busy..having said that that is not the reason why I shouldn't be blogging at least once a month which I had initially planned.

I am working on some of the shortcut series quilts for fatquartershop and I am super thrilled to share them all by November end. I rcently received 2 fb bundles from windhan one which is new print Allison of cluck cluck sew and available everywhere while the other will be available in January called tidal lace....wait till you see the quilts. I made them as Christmas present and used pattern from fatquartshop's new book.

I had also received the piecing and binding box from fatquartershop. I must say they are so neat as makes binding and piecing so much easier as all are colors which you would generally need for binding or piecing and so just having that box is so much easier then searching or matching thread.

I have provided the details for the box below just incase if you want to check out and have some Christmas present wish list you may want to add it ��.

I will blog about my finished quilt sometime in November or December hopefully with the awesome fabric and patterns and of course used will be the aurifil thread box available exclusive at fatquartershop for binding and piecing.

What are you guys working on...any special quilt or project for Christmas.

Thread Box includes 12 spools (1,422 yards each) of Aurifil 50wt. Cotton Thread. 

This thread box includes 12 brilliant colors perfect for binding!

FatQuarter Shop Nail Polish Mini Quilt!!!

Hello Ladies/Girls,

Do you ladies/girls love doing mani-pedi. Well as far as I am concerened I am not too fond of going to get medi-pedi done. I love to apply nail polish on my nails. I am a huge fan of all the OPI brown shades..I just love brown.

So why are we talking about Manicure or nail polish etc. well we are doing that as we would love for you to use your favorite nail polish color in a quilt block and join Kimberly and us in a day of girly-blogging about our blocks and mani-pedi love.

If you follow Kimberly on FB or Instagram, they had posted pictures of her favorite nail polish from OPI, Cajun Shrimp, that inspired this Nail Polish quilt block!

Sew Solid series will be focused on modern novelty blocks that you can turn into mini projects, or make several of the blocks for a big quilt.

So, when I received an email asking if I was interested in joininh the event...I said yes. I just love this block..isn't it just cool.

As Brown or rather earthy tones shades of nail polish is what I love I decided to choose my quilt colors based on that...and here is what I came up with.

As you can see I did a very simple quilting nothing fancy with straight lines and diagnol lines using aurifil thread...I just love aurifil. I left the bottle part unquilted as I did not want any lines and was loving the way it looked.

So do you want to join us and get started..go ahead and download the pattern and then watch the YouTube video along!!

Nail Polish Quilt, is the first in the Sew Solid video series for fat quarter shop YouTube channel!

Do post your finished quilt block pics on FatQuarter shop FB Page..I would love to see what colors you ladies/girls like.
