Happy Sewing! My Christmas present to myself was a long awaited garden office. I actually ordered it in September, so it was an early Christmas present really! It didn’t arrive until November and it has taken ages to sort things out. The office had to be insulated as it was too cold to work, despiteContinue reading “New Sewing Room!”

February Escapism, Homemade Style!
Hi guys. A very belated Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s been over 6 months since I’ve written a blog. With a mixture of home schooling and an increase in sales to my Etsy shop (one good thing to come out this situation!, I don’t seem to have any spare time whatsoever. At leastContinue reading “February Escapism, Homemade Style!”
Frida and me!
Since watching the 2002 film depicting the life of Frida Kahlo, by the fabulous Salma Hayek, I have been fascinated by the life and the art of this hugely iconic Mexican artist. Frida Kahlo is a world known iconic brand. A few months ago, I was searching the web for some Frida fabric and cameContinue reading “Frida and me!”
Bags of Star Wars!
Gosh, did I have fun this week with my Star Wars fabric quarters. I had been keeping them for a while as I was undecided what to make with them. Any fabric like this normally gets turned into a PE/kit bag! Then last week I decided upon turning them into carrier bag holders (so usefulContinue reading “Bags of Star Wars!”
Dr Who and film fabric!
I saw this great fabric in my local fabric store, Cottonpatch in Birmingham. As an ardent Dr Who fan since a little girl, I just couldn’t resist! It’s bang on trend too for the new female Doctor on BBC although I believe there will be no more Daleks present in the new series The fabricContinue reading “Dr Who and film fabric!”

I saw this lovely fabric from Cath Kidston and fell in love with it! To the extent that I’ve gone mad making things to sell on my Etsy shop with it! I ordered the pale blue smudge spot and also the London toile. So far, the order of blue spot fabric has been diminishing byContinue reading “My Cath Kidston fabric!”
Flower pot madness!
We had planned a warm Easter school holiday trip to Estepona, south of Malaga, Spain. In reality we were rained in, cold and were grateful of the heated seats in the hire car! It took us 3 days to finally visit the lovely town of Estepona in all it’s sunny glory. It was worth it.Continue reading “Flower pot madness!”
Mickey Mouse inspired
Last week I went to my local Hobbycraft for some supplies and saw a new fat quarter bundle of Mickey Mouse fabric. What fun! I decided to have a go at making a document wallet in the lovely Mickey Mouse fabric as well as some little wallets and purses. I will definitely need toContinue reading “Mickey Mouse inspired”
After the Christmas rush I started my sewing again when my son went back to school. Having had weeks of making Christmas decorations and Santa bags I felt like making something different! I had a look through all my Cath Kidston books for inspiration however couldn’t really find anything I fancied making. Out of theContinue reading “Sewing needlecases”
Although I consider myself to be a feminist and fully intend on continuing to bring my son up to believe that women can do anything that a man can do (if not better!), I find some strange personal satisfaction when I can hang out my washing on a lovely breezy summer’s day, watching it all blowing in the wind! IContinue reading “Peg bags”
