I can't quite believe that I forgot to blog about the photoshoot I had 2 weeks ago! I worked so hard to prepare all of the clothes, choose the models and set up the venue that in my excitement I forgot to blog about it! Luckily I shared the photos on my Facebook page for everyone to see (if you don't already follow me there, head on over to my

I have well and truly been bitten by the clothes making bug! Since I started making clothes for my niece I now can't stop and she is going to be the best dressed toddler in town at this rate! You will have seen in my last post that I have already made her a reversible dress, a sunhat and a pair of shorts! Well this weekend I made her another...

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.

But making it allowed me to indulge in a little personal sewing project and made me feel like I was doing my job as...

All of the cushions and bunting I make are made using amazing fabrics to make them fun and eye catching. But for a while now I have been waiting for a few quiet hours to be able to spend some time on something a bit more special in the form of a spot of applique! That quiet time came last night so I sat down with my notepad, sketched a design...

Last week I took a much needed break and went away for a few days to Somerset. I travelled around a few of the towns and cities close to where we were staying and following some recommendations from my lovely Twitter followers I visited a few haberdasheries to pick up some new fabrics! The fabrics shown here are all cottons so perfect for my...

Last week I posted on Twitter and Facebook a picture of my summer garden bunting. One of the first things I did when I moved into my brand new house in April was to create some pretty bunting for my garden. We built some decking and I just *had* to hang some pretty bunting along the hand rails! I chose bright cheerful colours to keep summer...
