I decided to start this blog for a few reasons: I love sewing and making and I love sharing those experiences with others. I also enjoy writing and miss the discipline of marshalling my thoughts to put them in coherent form (hopefully).
I have sewn and made items with fabric since I was 8. My mother taught me and then I was taught by the wonderful Mrs Mortimer at my school. I have had (and still have) triumphs and disasters. I expect you will be the judge on how that works out in the future! Now I am in my later 60s and blessed with a non-standard size. I have learnt a few things over the years but still have still have masses to learn.
My purpose is to share my journey with you, giving you information on the fabrics and patterns used, the challenges and successes along the way and would value your responses to all of that. Nowadays I sew for myself, my family and other special friends. I learn from Claire Tyler at the Midhurst Sewing Rooms and the many blogs which I visit.
