Sooo, dispite having all the time in the world on my hands I don't seem to have been able to keep up with the blog. I've finished off a few projects for clients for when they might be able to pick them up or I can drop off and fit things but my sewjo left … Continue reading I’m still here…
No-one. I started the year with so many ideas and plans...Now, well none of us knows how it's all going to pan out. I've gone from 4-5 classes a week sharing time and skills with the loveliest of students to nothing. Nada. But before we get too downhearted, we must look to the brighter side … Continue reading Normal for…
Summer in Bridgetown
I've hovered over the Bridgetown backless dress by Sew House 7 for some time now. I think I look at it most summers and then talk my self out of it due to the number of projects on the list. Well, this year I bit the bullet. It was also helped by the Sewing weekender … Continue reading Summer in Bridgetown
P-P-P-Pick up a Penguin Pinny
Sorry I couldn't resist that old reference to the chocolate bar of my youth. Today I bring you a seasonal Pinny made with some super soft penguin calico from Minerva.com.

My figure has changed in the last year or so and my summer wardrobe had been trimmed down … Continue reading From Jumpsuit to dress
How do you store your patterns? Are they all neatly put away in a box? On display on a shelf? Filed in a cabinet? Left in a pile? I thought I'd got it sussed. I have all of my general, big four stored in a plastic draw tower and boxes. Yes, I've got a lot … Continue reading Pattern storage
I fell for Zadie, hook, line and sinker
Jump suits. How do you feel about them? I've never been a fan. I think it's the loo issue. The thought of taking everything off to do the necessary just puts me off. Well, that was until I saw Tara from Paper Theory wearing her jumpsuit last year. It caught me, hook line and sinker. When … Continue reading I fell for Zadie, hook, line and sinker

Joining a class.
Hello, Happy New Year! I don't know about you but December and Christmas flew by in a whirlwind of present sewing and food. Yes, and the odd glass of wine too. I have to admit I relaxed more over the few days after new year than during all of the celebrations. Finally a few moments … Continue reading Joining a class.
