Three Blue Jumpers

So it’s been a while. one day I’ll start a post without saying that. It only took a viral pandemic would get me back to blogging here. I shan’t be dwelling on Covid 19 here. There are plenty of thoughts on the matter over on my other page, Today I Wrote. I hope to startContinue reading “Three Blue Jumpers”

Digital Art, You Say?

Over the past week, I have been having so much fun using Artflow Studio.  I was inspired by my sisters sketching on pro-create. After discovering it was an iPhone exclusive I tried a few recommended apps. The first one I could figure out was Artflow. It took me about a day to get used to.Continue reading “Digital Art, You Say?”

May Is Here And I’ve Got New Makes

I’m getting over a chest infection so the start of ‘Me Made May’ passed me by. I’m jumping on the bandwagon a few days late. For those of you who don’t know MMMay is an annual endeavour in which sewers make an effort to wear and love their handmade clothes. I’m planning to wear at least one make everyContinue reading “May Is Here And I’ve Got New Makes”

A Snuggly Present

It was my nieces second birthday yesterday. She was a bundle of excitement. Each time a new person she knew came through the door she would give a bright surprised smile followed by a delighted squeal. Each present received with a careful and serious ooo (thank you).  I ordered her a couple of books, though farContinue reading “A Snuggly Present”

Fun With Quilts!

Sooooo…it’s been a little manic for the past, let’s say, month? Hospital trips, holidays, a severe asthma attack, and a hen weekend. You know it’s been a lot. However, in-between the madness, I have been pretty creative. I am super proud of this quilt I’ve been making for my little sister. It’s a little different to a normalContinue reading “Fun With Quilts!”

Sometimes It’s Fine To Give Up

So the Moneta party is coming up! If you’ve not heard about it, It’s an Instagram in which we make the Moneta dress by Colette. As happens with anything with any form of deadline or pressure (even if it’s imagined) I panicked and messed up. And then gave up. Previously I made a small version, itContinue reading “Sometimes It’s Fine To Give Up”

My Makes…

Things are not perfect. However, I am now able to gather enough focus and energy to write this post. Last time I wrote about obsessively making things in order to avoid negative thoughts. I’m not quite comfortable having photos taken, that will have to wait for later posts. This is the first time I everContinue reading “My Makes…”

An Illusion Of Control

I’m shutting myself off again. Pushing through days, focusing on minutia and ignoring my emotions. There are many ways in which I isolate myself.  Over the past couple day’s my method has been sewing. I finished a tricky viscose top and made two pairs of sleep shorts. These projects have filled my mind, taken focus and concentration.Continue reading “An Illusion Of Control”

Mollie Makes And Experimenting With Patterns​

Yesterday I ran a charity day for Wrap Pyjama Fairies. Together with managed to make eight pairs of pyjamas for kids who are having treatment in hospital. It was fantastic but absolutely manic!  The heat did not help! Here we all are after a very busy, fun, day! If you want to find out more checkContinue reading “Mollie Makes And Experimenting With Patterns​”

Mountain Walks and Handmade Clothes

The Dolomites were exceptional.  We stayed in a beautiful town called Selva Val Gardena, or Wolkenstein if you’re a German speaker.  Writing every day, I’ve managed to collect snapshots of the holiday. I’m hoping to get that all written up  by the end of the week on my other blog, but for now, I thought I’d shareContinue reading “Mountain Walks and Handmade Clothes”
