Pouf or Cat Bed?

I am ever so happy with my Closet Core Pouf, as is my cat Theo. He is ever so grumpy with my when it’s time to add more fabric to the inner. This was not a quick make, though could very easily be made so, all you’d need to do is use a full circleContinue reading “Pouf or Cat Bed?”

Me Made May Week Two

Another Week of Makes for you all. still trying to keep to the pledge of appriciate one make everyday. Day Eight: Coasters! So on day seven I had a frustrating time trying to figure out how to use shirring elastic. I think it’s something to do with the top loading bobbin. So after over anContinue reading “Me Made May Week Two”

Moneta In The Sun

My Moneta came together beautifully. Just in time to frolic about in the sun. Most of my cooler clothes are at my house (still undergoing renovations) and due to the pandemic it looks like I won’t be seeing them any time soon. Perfect excuse to sew up a summer wardrobe. Both cats decided it theyContinue reading “Moneta In The Sun”

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…”
