Wishing you all a very merry Christmas & a happy new year. I'm going to take a week or so off from sewing & blogging – this year I'm having Christmas Eve drinks, Christmas Day breakfast, lunch & supper at my house this year, so I'm going to have to give sewing a break for … Continue reading

I’ve been a little absent from the blogging world over the last week or so because my husband and I have been busy moving house. We bought it a few weeks back and settled last week. It’s been really exciting for us. We’re all moved in now and once the Internet gets connected I’ll be … Continue reading
