There is nothing more inclined to drive me out to my studio than dreary January weather. Getting stuck into sewing a new quilt when the days are cold, dull and damp is the perfect remedy, especially after trudging round the woods when taking the dogs for a walk :) In... Continue reading

One thing I love about sewing is that there is always something new to learn, to try, to discover......if there wasn't, it would get very boring. Last week, I took a class at Patchwork Corner. It was called Fold and Finish Cushion and used a technique by a lady called... Continue reading

Following Olivers death last January, I think we all dreaded facing the firsts, they all came so close together - first Christmas, first New Year, first Birthday of Oliver, first anniversary...

......my gorgeous, wonderful, amazing daughter was born. I faced that day with much trepidation.......I loved being pregnant, happily sailed through the pregnancy but at 34 weeks, my doctor gave me a little scare. He started worrying about how big the baby was and whether I'd be able to deliver naturally... Continue reading

.....and it still feels like yesterday. I can't quite belive we're in April - when did that happen? My mind seems to be permanantly stuck in January. I keep thinking it's 6 months until summer, until the holiday we have planned....but it's not, time marches on whether you march with... Continue reading

Wow, I can't quite believe a month has already passed since my last post....it's true, time really does fly when you're having fun, and for me, having fun is when I'm creating - either sewing, quilting, crocheting and needle felting. I made a few Christmas presents, not all of them... Continue reading

I can't believe it's been a month since I've blogged.....September came and went with barely a glance. Most of it I've been ill....trips to A&E, trips to the Dr, lots of time spent in bed and generally feeling rough. Asthma is no joke, especially when you can't get on top... Continue reading

I've not done much crafting recently, in any form - quilting, crocheting, dressmaking - but I have joined a crochet-a-long to get me back into the swing of it :) As you may remember I recently learned Amigurumi. I love all the toys and creatures that can be made with... Continue reading

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I last blogged. Life has been hectic with health issues, moving, childminding, puppy sitting, meeting long lost relatives and it has left no time for creativity, in any shape or form. Charley has finished at university......those 4 years went so quick.... Continue reading
