I am back

This is a view I have been looking at A LOT for the past few weeks. Little I had a (second hand, of course) bike for her birthday and she rides it to preschool everyday. I am glad to report we have now got a basket strapped to the back so her doll no longer has to be tied on with a bit of string but can ride in more style.



I have been busy sewing while offline - pictured is a Simplicity 2599 top I made from a piece of fabric that I found in my Devon binbags. I only had a small piece and was just able to cut the top out.I ditched the facings for both neck and armholes and instead did a tiny hand rolled hem on each. This has become one of my go-to tops now and I wear it several times a week.


Other misadventures include a morning in A &E last week when Little I swallowed a 1p coin. Ah, the joy of parenting. She had an x-ray to check where it was, then we were left to let nature take its course. (Which it did, I will spare you the details)


I have more sewing to show you soon, and a giveaway to celebrate being back online again.

  1. Yay! Good to see you again!! Love the Simplicity 2599 - it is such a star pattern & I love your take on it.
    Funny times with coins & digestive systems ... I remember it well, although my now 22 year old would probably prefer I keep the experience to myself!

  4. Very glad you are back! And intrigued by the 2599 with no facings. Can you post close ups of the rolled hem? Also I love your new banner at the top, I've just made some yoyos + buttons myself!
