back in the real world!
OK, I
know I’ve been really quite lately, but this time I have a really good
excuse!   I GOT A JOB!!! Yes,
really, a real, paying, 9 to 5 job. Despite

internet, the job I ended up wit...

Ruffles and Tweed
A while ago I was given a box of fabric bits and
pieces from a friend’s mother, who is now in her nineties and hasn’t sewn for
years.     As well as some lovely vintage
prints she had started making herself a pair of trousers out of this wool. It’s a heavy ...

A green evolution
Me:   Dear
internet, I have sinned.   It has been a
whole month since my last blog post.   Internet: We’d hardly noticed, and anyway, you’ve
probably got a really good excuse, like, you got a job! Me: Well no, I still haven’t got a job. Internet: Well somet...

Sewing double... or triple
The Monthly Stitch challenge for April is " sewing double ".  The exact interpetation of this wa left pretty open, so my first interpretation is sewing my version of a ready to wear, and sewing two garments from the same pattern: I saw

Heather's pin dog
I’ve been
watching The Great British Sewing Bee on line.   One of the season 2 competitors, Heather, uses a stuffed dog as a pin
cushion.     I was in LOVE with this pin

are, literally, hundreds of free patterns f...

Copying RTW
One of
the many sewing related topics that came up at the recent meet up for Auckland
Sewing Bloggers was our behaviour in clothes shops.   I was glad to hear that I wasn’t the only
sewer who lurks in clothes shops looking at RTW with a view to making a cop...

MissBossy Patterns was a little indecisive about her choice, and I did make the GuyLaRoche jacket that I think that she wanted, but just in case I had been
mistaken, and it was genuinely a dead heat, I thought I’d better do the Butterick
dress too.     Afte...

Finally - Project 6, the quilt
This was
one of my 52 projects for last year.   I
have never made a quilt before so I signed up for the Craftsy Block of theMonth 2012, and I started working on the blocks way back in March last

course blocks, as we...

Viewers' Choice
MissBossy Patterns was a little indecisive about her choice, but I’m pretty sure
that what she wanted was this Guy LaRoche jacket.     Since I am defiantly sewing myself a new

Lining a dress
A few
weeks ago Helen Chaffin asked for some advice about sewing a fully lined sleeveless
dress on the Monthly Stitch facebook page.   While I’ve
done this several times I had great difficulty explaining it.     I’ve been sewing up a new working wardrobe in...
