First off, Happy New Year everybody. I am maybe a bit late in writing this as it is now the second week in January but sure it is better late than never! In my quest to try and blog a bit more I thought I would start with a bit of a look back at… continue reading.
When I was coming up for the design for my website, I wanted my blog to be an integral part of it because I love to read other sewists blogs and having never blogged before I thought I would quite like to give it a go! I had hoped that I would have been able… continue reading.
I am really excited to introduce to you, my new sewing themed wall prints! There are four different designs, 2 sewing quotes and 2 stitching notions ones. The idea for these prints came about when I was decorating my shop and was looking for some fun artwork to put on the walls and couldn’t find… continue reading.
Confession, I always get that little bit more excited about a Tilly and the Buttons release than I do about any other pattern company. Maybe that’s because I have made more Tilly patterns than any other, but I think it is just because they are the closest to my everyday style than any other company…. continue reading.
As soon as I saw the free range slacks pattern by Sew House Seven, I knew I had to make a pair, they are exactly what I was looking for in a trouser to see me through what’s left of the summer. The pattern consists of 2 versions, a straight leg version and a tapered… continue reading.
The Sew House Seven toaster sweater is a staple in a lot of sewists wardrobe and it is easy to see why. The pattern comes in two different variations, both with different neck versions and both really lovely when they are made up. I have made both before, but for this time I chose to… continue reading.

The closet case kalle shirt is something I had been meaning to make for a few years and now that I have made one, I wish that I had done it a long time ago. The Kalle is a shirt pattern that comes in 3 different options, a dress with a high low hem, a… continue reading.
I have 2 shop updates for you, first of all I put some new fabric on the website today and all being well I have some more deliveries coming to me this week. I restocked that pink leopard print jersey that you all loved and got in a new colourway. It's hard to choose which one is my favourite! . With regards to the shop, I have moved the shop to my house. I don't hold a lot of stock and we had a small spare room that we had not put furniture in to so actually it's worked out perfectly for me. I sent out a lot of orders today, my local post office is still open but on shorter hours and are now closed Saturdays so I am able to drop the parcels off still and keep the shop going. I have however decided to reduce the amount I am going to the post office, to twice a week, with my next post being on friday morning. Then tues and fri next week again. Thank you so much for all the understanding and support as always. 💕 ...
