Bye bye to 2023! Happy New Year! To be honest, I’m glad to see the back of 2023. I ended up being off work for 2 months with migraines, urgghh. Yet, in the next month, I’ll get to see the Neurosurgeron to see if the cyst in my brain is causing the migraines. All things considered, I’m still standing…just! Plus, I’ve had 4 tattoos! I bit the bullet and you know what I can see why you don’t stop at just one, it’s addictive! Lizzie at Stone Cold Tattoos is amazing! I’ve managed to make quite a bit actually for 2023!

Hello and Happy Halloween to those who celebrate it! I can’t believe it’s the 31st of October already!! I’m on a roll here! I’ve made one of my projects from my Autumn/winter sewing plans already!

Sewing has to be inclusive for all and to take the hard work out of grading up patterns is fantastic so I’m entering the October challenge! As soon as this pattern (Waves and Wild Stephanotis) was was released ..read more
