Out of the blue – Sewoverit Heather Dress

Hi there I am really bad at getting pictures at this time of year so it has taken me a couple of weeks to get photos of this dress. One day I will work out how to get good indoor pictures using my fairly basic camera, but until then I will just have to make…

Paisley in the Park – Named Helmi dress

Hi there – it’s definitely autumn here now! The clocks have gone back and the days are already so much shorter. Today it was a little grey so the photos aren’t the greatest but at least I remembered to get some before it got dark! This is the Named Helmi tunic dress, from their latest…

Jacket required – Papercut Waver

All change – and a Deer and Doe Bleuet…

Hello It has been a long time since my last post – again!  I have done some sewing since then but not as much as I had hoped and I have failed to get round to taking pictures until now – even though the longer days have given me no excuse. Life has basically been…

The twirly skater – a Lady Skater variation

Hi there everyone Another post only a week after my last! Clearly some sew-jo is returning at last. We are still getting used to the return of the sun to the North, so the pictures are a bit of a mixed bag this week! Last weekend I cut out four different projects – using fabric…

Stripey and silvery – Grainline Hemlock tees

Hi all It has been a bit quiet round here recently – like a lot of people I have struggled to take any photos over the winter and I haven’t been doing a lot of sewing in the last month or two. I have spent a lot of time looking at patterns and fabric and…
