Larking around

Forgive the title, people, I wasn't feeling very original this afternoon! My post today is about this month's Minerva Crafts Blogger Network project.  This one is not the most exciting, glamorous make in the world but I think it's going to be a really useful addition to my wardrobe. I chose to make the Grainline... Continue Reading →

Golden Givre

Hi there! How's your December going? Are you feeling festive, brimming with mulled wine and mince pies? Or do you, perchance, have primary school age children and are therefore drowning under the requirement to send party food, nativity costumes, cards, gifts, christmas jumpers and god only knows what else for each child on different days?...

The girls with the twirly skirts

Hi there! My latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network post goes live today and, in a change from my usual selfish sewing, I decided to make something for my children this time around.  Clearly that meant making two dresses, rather than selecting a favourite child! They're both at an age where skirts need to twirl and... Continue Reading →
