Me-Made-May… No Thanks.

Unless you live under a rock, or at least if you’re not on social media, you can’t have failed to notice that it’s “Me-Made-May”. Call me a party pooper, but I just don’t see the point. (If you want to

Insert terrible sewing pun here…

I’m not a fan of everything with a sewing theme, despite what people might think, but thankfully I haven’t been bought a massive amount of sewing-themed paraphernalia. However, I couldn’t resist this fabric and thought it’d make a pretty cool

The Handmade Fair

Yesterday I went to Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace with my lovely friend Sally. We booked the tickets an absolute lifetime ago (ok ¬†April, but it seems like forever) so we’ve been looking forward to it for

Hey! I’ve got a couple of things to share this morning. First up, the Typewriter skirt is finally ready for action! I re-did the zip, with a a bit of drama, and managed to wear it yesterday, hurrah! I’m so
