in the garden
Joining in with Soulemama. A little weekly update on how my garden is progressing. The
peas are starting to do well out there. I've got so many different

Oh the puppet show, quite possibly my very favourite Oliver + S pattern ever! The one that started my love affair with O+S patterns. I

Kids Clothes Week- DAYS 2 and 3
Second verse, same as the first. OK it might not be the most exciting thing to see, but I've been sewing more of the same. My daughter really likes this style of dress, and they're so cute on, so it was easy to sew a couple more up. These are just some warm...

So I've finally done it. I signed up to KCW (Kids Clothes Week) ! Thanks McStitch (aka Shelley) for inspiring me to get my butt into gear and finally join up. I've never done one of these before, but the whole idea is that you spend an hour a day for a week...
