Hi – thanks so much for stopping by!
This blog is mostly about Sewing. I try to make and blog about one garment each week – most are inspired by fashions from the 1950′s.
During 2012 I am a Contributor in the Sew Weekly – weekly challenges. This is where we try to make a garment each week around a set theme. If you have not heard of the site – and like sewing and or vintage – I really recommend it. Mena Trott who puts it all together is a fantastic inspiration.
So I am part of this fantastic international online sewing circle. We are getting to know each a little more each week. Some people are very open and up front about who they are and what they struggle with, others are more reserved. It is hilarious and inspiring reading. Everyone is very encouraging and it’s a great place to share knowledge.
Sometimes my husband and kids need me for other stuff. I work part-time. So my time is taken up with chauffeuring, grocery shopping, domestics, as little cooking as possible, homework, and a lot of washing (laundry). Arranging flowers is also up there, as is messing about with my camera and camera phone, and I am saving up for a real camera too. Sewing has to come last.
I also love vintage stuff mostly fabric and patterns, but all kinds of stuff. I blog about op shopping, movies I am watching, books I may be reading (or have read as a child) and music I am listening to, and what inspires me.
I am not a writer so please be nice if my grammar or spelling is not perfect.
It is my goal to inspire, to uplift and to entertain.
I would be chuffed if you left me a comment. Many people visit this blog all around the world. A fact that amazes me.
I would love to hear from you.
