Two T shirts, New Look 6735 yet AGAIN [sorry, it’s dull, but I love it and need T shirts!] Fabulous quality aqua jersey, cotton with plenty of lycra, from [I think] Frumble yet again.

Or shall I go for one of these lovelies which arrived on … Continue reading Going Boss-eyed
Hello possums! Have you missed me? Did you even notice I haven’t been doing any normal sewing for AGES? Well, I’m in an insane flurry right now, feeling unwell [some horrible stomach bug, I look like I’m pregnant] and marking three A level papers simultaneously. Bad planning, what can I say? So I decided to … Continue reading Oh Dear Oh Dear…
…and crows and owls and mice and and and…. So many last minute and ‘small’ roles had to be sorted, some I’ve mentioned along the way.
