Hello September!

I love September. There’s a real sense of it being a brand new start, a time to achieve stuff, a reboot of the year. I guess that’s the teacher in me, I always loved the start of the year with

Plotting some selfish sewing

The problem with deciding to turn a hobby into a business is that you don’t have as much time for whatever you do as a hobby anymore. Most nights, once the girls are asleep, if there’s sewing (or screen-printing) to

Girl Power!

You’d be forgiven for thinking that this post has something to do with the Spice Girls given the title, but rest assured it’s not. To be honest, I was never a fan (unlike my brother, who would never admit it

Screen-printing, sewing and a birthday

Hello March!

Spring is almost here, and I don’t know about you, but I feel like my mood has been lifted already. I really struggle to motivate myself throughout the winter. I’ve got lots planned for March though and, I’m really loving
