Scrub Bag – “Nobody Fights Alone” – Riley Blake Designs

I’m not sure if there are many people, who at the start of the year could have predicted how the world would be right now. What started off as something in a market in China has turned into one of the biggest pandemics the world has ever seen. I don’t think there has ever been…… Continue reading Scrub Bag – “Nobody Fights Alone” – Riley Blake Designs


Stitch and Go Case – New Pattern Release!

I’m so excited today to be sharing with you my first pattern – The Stitch and Go Case. As you know I’m a keen cross stitcher, and especially a fan of an SAL (sew-along).

Beauty and the Beast – Sawtooth Star Mini Quilt

One of my all time favourite Disney films is Beauty and the Beast. Probably because being about 9 years old, I was just the right age to fall in love with the magic of Disney films. Although thinking about it, even now as a grown woman in her late 30’s I still do love a…… Continue reading Beauty and the Beast – Sawtooth Star Mini Quilt

Animal Almanac – Month 3

How are you all doing? Such crazy times right!? Not a whole load of sewing going on over here, what with Mabel’s pre-school being closed, and lack of concentration with all the worry over everything, I haven’t really made it onto my machine. I have been happily hand stitching as much as I can though.…… Continue reading Animal Almanac – Month 3

My 5th Mother’s day as a mummy but my first without mine. I know this day is going to be difficult, even though I know I will be surrounded by lots of love. I’ve struggled with the run up to it, seeing the shops full of cards and gifts, it’s like salt in a very…… Continue reading Mothering Sunday…
