Let love and kindness win

“Where there is love there is life” – Ghandi I have tried to avoid talking about Covid-19 on here, but I just wanted to share a few words. This is an unprecedented time for us all. Not just that but down-right scary too! Now is the time to show kindness and love to people. There…… Continue reading Let love and kindness win


Sarah Jane Fabric Swap

I recently took part in a fun swap with fellow fans of fabric designer Sarah Jane. I am often reluctant to take part in swaps, I always worry that I don’t do enough “extras” and if the recipient will like what I have made. It is all very well making something that has been requested…… Continue reading Sarah Jane Fabric Swap

Christmas Sewing Prep

Now it’s November I feel I can finally start prepping the Christmas sewing. I actually started a couple of weeks ago but in true Saysie style I am only now just blogging about it! Every year I have so many plans to make so many things, whether that be gifts, decorations or tasty food. In…… Continue reading Christmas Sewing Prep


My new favourite sewing tool

In this month’s Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine there was a free gift which was a seam roller. I’ll be honest I’ve always been a bit dubious about them and if they actually worked. I’ve tried finger pressing to no good effect and figured they would have a similar affect so have always favoured using an iron to get a nice…… Continue reading My new favourite sewing tool
