Vintage sewing treasures

Tom’s Nanna recently passed on a box of vintage sewing treasures to me, and I had to let you see them! I was so excited to discover what was inside… I love anything vintage but especially sewing things. They always make me wonder who used them and where they came from. I don’t actually know anything about these, but I’ll find out and will let you know!  Read More

Project Life October to December 2014
Catching up with 2014

It has been AGES since I had a good chunk of time to catch up with Project Life! I had stopped at October, which is when we were packing things up and getting ready for our kitchen work to begin, so had a lot to catch up with. Catching up with 2014 was important before I forgot what to include! But I needed to give myself some proper time to do this – I always end up with cards and pages and photos everywhere, so I need time to make a mess and tidy up afterwards!  Read More

I spotted this amazing fabric about a week ago and immediately began thinking about what I could possibly make with it in order to justify buying it (know that feeling too?!). Then I read a post on Tilly Walnes’ blog about keeping sewing machines dust free, and decided that it would be perfect as a sewing machine cover for my Janome Sewist 525S. It gets moved around our house a lot and seems to collect dust very easily! I also started work on a sewing project which uses black fabric, and realised that my thread was picking up all the dust from inside my machine…so a cover is definitely needed! Read More

Hello! Hooray! Project Life
Project Life: August 2014
I started on working on my first Project Life album last month, and I’ve been so excited to share it with you! It’s one of those things that I knew I’d enjoy, but I didn’t realise just how much – it’s just fab! It’s been really good to think about the things I’ve enjoyed doing and the things I want to include in my album. I really enjoyed doing my 100 Happy Days challenge earlier in the year, and this is another way of documenting all the fun things we’ve been up to! Read More
