Cosy Toaster Sweater

Hi Everyone, 

So I'm back with another make for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. This time with the blogger staple; Sew House 7's Toaster Sweater. This is a pattern that has been seen on nearly everyone's blogs, but I was late to the hype, so am only just getting around to trying it out. 

Things I want to make in 2018!

Hi Everyone,

Hope you're recovering from the copious amounts of food you've all been consuming. I still seem to be in a food coma at the moment. And having boxes of chocolates around me doesn't help!

I wanted to do a sort of review post, reflecting on last years list of things I wanted to make and seeing if I achieved them. Things I have actually ticked off my list this year are:

  • Finishing my Cleo Pinafores and making a few more!
  • My Rosa Shirt Dress
  • Baby items - I've made so many!
  • More tops, I've made quite a few t-shirts and sweaters this year. 

Things I STILL haven't made from that list:

  • Yoga Leggings. I think I have too many, so didn't think to make any more.
  • A sweater or hoody for my other half. I wanted his input and he didn't think he needed any at the time, so we never finalised any design ideas. 
  • A bra. I never got round to making daintier items for myself. I'm actually a little disappointed I didn't make it a priority. But I'll re-add this to next years list. 

Happy 2018 - My Highlights

Hello Everyone,

Happy New Year! I hope you're all recovering from the Christmas 'slump' and had wonderful new year celebrations. So now comes the time for me to reflect on what I achieved in 2017. The ups, downs and also to see what I've got to look forward to in 2018!

My 2017 Best Nine on Instagram

I know I always say it, but I really do appreciate all of you. Whether you buy personalised items from my shop, read my blog, attend my workshops, watch my Youtube Videos or follow me on social media, It really does mean the world to me. You give me the option to have my dream job, and I am eternally grateful. 

2017 was full of highlights for me. Teaching at the Handmade Fair in the Janome tent, at both the Spring and September Fairs, was a dream come true. And I'm excited to be doing it all again this coming year!

Christmas Jumper Night

Hi Everyone,

This is a little late but thought I'd share all the fab designs from my Christmas Jumper Workshops at The Thirsty Bird in Wimborne.

Glittery Francoise!

So when the party season arrives, you need some easy outfits. For me they have to be comfy, as I truly don't care for uncomfortable wearing, no matter how good it looks. I wanted something simple but with a hint of festive cheer. And I found it in the Tilly and the Buttons Francoise
