Portobello perfection

Hi there! In previous years, as the weather's turned warmer, I have found myself mass producing sleeveless tops and pretty dresses to suplement my ready to wear clothes and give my wardrobe a boost.  This year, despite there being some tops on the radar (and a couple in the wardrobe.

Closet Case Patterns do it again

Hi there! So once again it's been a bit quiet on the old blog.  There has been a fair amount of sewing going on (as you'd know if I'd kept up with the monthly round up posts) but I've been struggling with migraines again which has made coping with a screen rather painful to say...

Ice cream trousers of dreams!

Hello there! I hope you're having a good Sunday, preferably with some better weather than we've got in Leeds right now.  I'm kind of hanging in there; I've felt awful this weekend, think I'm fighting an ear infection but I've just felt totally wiped out.

Fourth time’s a charm?

Hi there! Another blog post after much radio silence? That is indeed the case.  What's more, it's another jumpsuit (who am I these days, anyway?!) Today sees the publication of my latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network make. And I chose to do my fourth version of the Closet Case Files "Sallie" jumpsuit. I know, same... Continue Reading →

My first ever published article!

Hi there! It's been pretty quiet around here of late; apologies for that but somehow, I just haven't been in the mood for blogging.  A combination of real life stress, an ever expanding to sew list and, for the last month, a non-functional washing machine has meant I just haven't had spare time or energy...
