I’ve made plans many times before… I have very rarely stuck to these plans. In fact on average I make two out of every five planned items. I don’t know how different this list will be, but I’m trying to at least keep it to a manageable level. Plus only add things I will really… Continue reading The winter collection
I’ve been following the Instagram sew photo-hop over the last month. I love getting an insight into the sewing habits of other people… their sewing spaces… things they are particularly proud of.
