Restlessness equals spontaneous online purchases… I may have just bought an overlocker! 🤤
Jaguar 96 ex-showroom model with 15 year guarantee. New it would cost over £320; I’m getting it for £179!
It’s probably waaaaaay too professional for the likes of me but I could have paid the same for a much more basic, brand new model so I figure a bit of quality is a good thing to have! 🙂
A friend tagged me on this on Facebook and so I had to share it with my sewing-fanatic community!
We used to car share a lot for work and so she was the sensible voice in my ear when the fabric-hungry demons were tempted! 🙂
Cheesecake update… just because I didn’t take a photo of it that really did it justice before! Must say, it gets tastier with each passing day! 🙂
Look at those layers… biscuit base, vanilla filling and chocolate filling. Yum!
I decided to have a Sewing Sunday this weekend as I’m seriously having withdrawal problems! I’ve kept it simple though- just a baggy sweatshirt which comprises of only 4 pieces. All will be revealed soon! 🙂
Inspired by this pretty bowl when I visited Coughton Court (National Trust) earlier; wouldn’t it make a lovely fabric print?
And someone at the house has been crafting away – loving these beautiful paper roses as the centrepiece. Stunning. 😍
And a little momento of our visit – a cast iron bunny! Yeah, it might look like chocolate but I can assure you it would hurt a lot more if it landed on your toe! (Strategically placed where Rodney – the real rabbit – has a tendency to think it’s okay to wee… Hopefully this will deter him!)
I think it’s fair to say this is one of the busiest pattern sheets I’ve come across yet! Not sure where to begin…
The strawberry blouse is so near to completion! Just a few more buttons to sew on and a hemline to tidy up! Here’s a sneaky peek at my first attempt at a) covered buttons and; b) machine button holes: 😊
