Llovely Llamas

Today my latest blog post for Minerva Crafts goes live.  I chose to make up an old favourite, the Grainline Linden sweatshirt. And, quite unusually, I messed up! The finished project is fine; it's just not what I intended. I've mentioned quite a few times that I get very frustrated about fabric requirements on patterns... Continue Reading →

Looking back at 2018 and my Make Nine

Happy New Year! OK, I know I'm a few days late, but such is life right now. Things have been quiet around here of late and there's a chance they will remain so.  Life has become rather full in the real world so my opportunity for navel gazing on't interweb may be rather restricted.

Pretty Polly cover up!

Hi there! Today I want to share my latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network post with you.  This month, I made a cover up with a difference: instead of being for me, it was for my overlocker! Regular readers will know that my sewing cave has absolutely no natural light in it at all, so when... Continue Reading →

Jumping for joy

OK, I admit, the title for this post is a total cliche! But honestly, I'm so chuffed with the make I want to show you today, I couldn't help myself. Vogue 9075 has been on my radar for quite some time now.  There are various glorious versions floating about on the internet now (here, here and... Continue Reading →

I genuinely cannot say enough good things about this Art Gallery Fabrics rayon.  Everything about it is... Continue Reading →
