All bunted out…

Anyone following my blog this time last year will know about the 50m of bunting that I made for my wedding, so when I thought about bunting for my party this weekend 28m seemed like nothing! Oh, how I was wrong – it’s taken me 2.5 days to do 3/4 of it. I think I… Read more »

New sewing adventures…

As opposed to my journey up North on Friday when I was pushed onto an escalator and ended up black and blue with a few bruises and a broken crutch as it got lodged sideways on a moving escalator I thought I’d show you my black and red bag. I can now reveal my first… Read more »
