For those of you that follow my Facebook page you will know that I have started a Masters degree and my time is completely taken up by that at the moment. I have therefore decided to close the Blog section of my website. The rest of the website will still run as will my Facebook page and I can be contacted by email too using the contact page on...

Merry Christmas! There's only 7 days to go until Christmas Day and I am now officially closed for the holiday season! I will re-open for orders from the 2nd January but you can buy from the online shop anytime you like over the festive period and orders will be sent out on the 2nd January. 

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a...

I just can't help myself, I see fabric and I buy it. I am a firm believer that fabric addiction does exist. In fact, I have bought so much fabric over the last year that I've run out of things to say when the sales assistant asked me what I'm making whilst cutting my latest metre or two.

So I turned to buying fabric online, you're almost...

A few weeks ago as a personal project I made my niece a sun hat for her holidays. To be honest it was more for me than it was her as she is fiercly independent for an 18 month old and I knew she wouldn't spend any time wearing it. But making it allowed me to indulge in a little personal sewing project and made me feel like I was doing my job as...
