We are starting to ‘spruce up’ our family home in preparation for down-sizing sometime in the future. Since wallpaper is now ‘out’, my hubby surprised me by stripping the paper in the bathroom on our first level while I was gone on my last business trip! That being done, I had to ‘take action’. This last weekend I painted and stitched and now it is done! Since I take photos almost constantly as I sew and design creating my pattern…Continue
Well I have finally finished my last project for Jessica's course. We had to design our own embroidery and she suggested using a photograph. After a visit to the attic and a lot of dithering I settled on the Kingfisher.…Continue
This is my first experience with your blog. Not sure how it happened to come to me, but I have now registered because I was SO impressed with your free sewing tutorial regarding converting a long-sleeve tee to a bow-embellished t-shirt. I especially love the idea of…Continue

I find I need help to stay on top of my 'to do' list these days. I get so annoyed with myself when I go out with a list and mail and find them still in my bag when I get home! So I decided what I really needed was a…Continue
A few years ago I made a load of aprons for a stall at a Craft Fair. It wasn't well attended and I have been selling the aprons off in our gift shop ever since. Back in 2012 I changed the design I had on one from an elephant to a cockerel as it hadn't sold. It has gone to a new owner now, and there…Continue

Made these pillows for a customer recently. He is doing a spare room in a vintage decor, and he provided the fabric/materials.
These are 14" stuffed pillows with a thin linen vintage cowboy print for the front, and chocolaty brown vinyl for the back and a 3" skinny brown suede fringe for the trim.
He texted me after he got them home and "placed" them and said he thought they looked great. So, I'm happy. :)…Continue

In my last post I showed you my Embroidery Workbag, and Suzy asked if I had made it. I replied I had, and here is how.
My mother collected fabric scraps for years, planning to make a quilt one day. They included bits from dressmaking by my sister and I as well as recycled garments and bought…Continue

I have acquired several Craftsy courses. Several seemed like a good idea at the time, but for various reasons I have not completed them. However on the last Bank Holiday Sale, I succumbed and bought another one! …Continue
A couple of years ago I bought two patterns from Studio Kat Designs - the Quattro and the Lollapalooza - and shipped them over from the States.…Continue

I know, shopping trolleys were just for old ladies when I was young, but when it snowed really badly I left the truck at home and walked to the shops for our groceries. I bought this trolley then and it carried loads of stuff and spared my bad shoulder, and of course it's 'green' and eco-friendly, but oh so dull and…Continue
