Well look at that, I have given birth to a blog. And what a fabulous blog it shall be!
So the main thing I want to talk about is my sewing habit. A couple of years ago I found an old Singer Featherweight sewing machine in a charity shop for £30 and it was the start of an addiction. I started with a couple of little zip bags, moved onto the odd skirt or dress and around this time, The Great British Sewing Bee graced our screens. I was so inspired that there were others like me who wanted to have unique clothes that fit properly and it was so much fun to see people doing what I wanted to do. This also introduced me to the world of sewing blogs, with Tilly and the Buttons making it’s way into my bookmarks.
Despite having been doing it for a while, I found it hard to fit into my routine, but recently it’s grown from occasional hobby to full blown obsession and I want to take it to the next level. So here I am! I want to document what I’ve made, what I’m planning to make, what works, what’s crap, fabric I’m excited about, patterns I want, skills I’m learning. I’ve upgraded my machine, I’ve got a whole pile of fabric in my stash and lots of ideas, so let’s see where I end up.
Oh, and I might also find some time to talk about a few other things I love – vegetarian food, French films, magical realism… whatever takes my fancy!
