September Sew Diary

You can always consider it a safe bet that one of the first things that will ever come up in my sewing diary is a Charm Patterns make. That’s because 9 times out of 10 the monthly release from Gertie’s Patreon is right up my street. The Mariner Top Ok, ok, so I didn’t make […]

August 2021 Sew Diary

I can’t believe August is over already. I’ve already noticed the evenings getting darker soon and with that chill in the air it’s evident autumn is on the way. I, for one, can’t wait. I’m not really a sun lover so the few weeks we had of heat and sunshine are something I’d rather leave […]

This month, as we counted down the days to Christmas, the momentum picked up at work as well as with voluntary commitments so I didn’t have a lot of time to sew. Work related travel (in wintery conditions) left me too tired to be productive in the evenings. More often than not I’ve been sitting […]
