It’s All Going On!

How is it already December!? We’ve been really busy with Christmas Markets in various places around the city. We had our first stint at the cathedral market a few weeks ago and will be there again as of Monday (yes, we’re working on layouts and packing boxes in preparation today). It’s been great to .

August Sewing Challenge… Kind of

2018; A New Year, A New Challenge

  Is anyone else setting themselves a crafty challenge for 2018? If you’re anything like me, you’ve tried before and given up by mid January! So I’ve decided that I’ll use this blog to keep me motivated and share my experiences with you. I’m a fairly confident sewer but I do have those favourite .
