We’re having friends over later, and although we’ve seen each other a few times [Scott does our hair- gratuitous wedding pic time!], we haven’t had a really good, proper grown up evening in and a feast in forever. So I’m doing the job properly! Unfortunately this means I have to move all my sewing stuff … Continue reading That’s Entertainment!
The roses/poppies shirt is done, and waiting for its snaps. [A little aside- I’d put a pic on Facebook, and commented that I liked the fact it made me look like I’ve been paintballing.

We survived Ofsted, and I aten’t dead. This weekend is Birmingham Gay Pride. [This is NOT me … Continue reading Plan for the weekend [so far]
First up- the let’s-see-if-this-works asymmetrical top. I bought this [now OOP] pattern for the wife a few years ago, thinking it might be a cool top to wear when she’s performing, leaving either guitar hand free as desired [you just turn the thing front to back, both pieces are identical]. I made it up, she … Continue reading Simply Red #1- red or dead?
