Me Made May…the rest of it

Sorry, sorry… I had intended to do a week by week recap of #MMM21 but, well stuff happened. So in order to bring this to a close I decided to just put the rest of the weeks into one post. Week Two There had been a little more easing of restrictions and I used MeMadeMay […]

Waffle Patterns Anzu Cargo Skirt tester

I’ve been drooling over the artwork of Yuki at Waffle Patterns for a long time and day-dreamed over her drawings wishing not only could I think up such great designs but also that I could illustrate them so well. Just call me a #fangirl. I was really happy when Yuki agreed to let me test […]

Joining the Scrubs Army: what does it take to feelgood?

In the Mood – some Free Pattern Love

I’ve got a new obsession. I visited Mood Fabrics in New York on my holiday last Autumn, the warehouse is a cornucopia of fabric and you could spend days in there. It was more a pilgrimage than a shopping spree as I didn’t buy anything because my bags were full and I had no more […]

My MakeNine for 2019 before 2019 is over…

It’s nearly the end of February and I haven’t yet declared my #makenine for this year. I’ve been really busy since I went back to work last September, so sewing time has been drastically reduced. I’ve also been trying to cut down my social media addiction by not being on IG and FB so much. […]
