While I'm here, here's the finished painting.


Quite like bits of this one too.
I got my lovely Sew Delicious Pouch from America! It's fabulous and the envelope was full of LOADS of chocolate. We have been merrily munching away on it all weekend. Yum... Thank you Jill


I'm hoping mine arrives within the month... I had the grumpy man at the post office.


I loved learning how to make these pouches, still room for improvement...so many things to remember. Great fun to make.

Here's a picture of my second ever zipper pocket and my exciting sewing tool that I got for xmas - thanks mama!


Some of the more eagle-eyed of you may recognise the fabric! It's from the studio curtains. The corner pointer thingy works a treat and I didn't even know I needed one. I'm learning so much about my sewing machine and having fun. I didn't know what a zipper foot was and now, not only do I know but I'm even using it.

Hello 2014!

My word it's been a busy start, too busy to have time to even post on the ol' blog!

Let's have a quick update... 

Here's a painting I'm working on at the moment.


I'm also taking part in this sweet pouch swap hosted by Sew Delicious.

Having made two skirts last summer I realised I could do with some practice putting in zips - what better way than making a little zip up pocket? (pouch)

Having finished a little knitting project which I can't show yet... hopefully later this year; I embarked on sewing projects. I've learned so much! Mostly just get on and do it, also the helpfulness of online tutorials - thanks all you folks who post on Youtube!

Stay tuned for photos of outgoing and incoming zip up pockets!
