Goodbye 2017

2017 hurtles to a close and I am not particularly sad to see this year go. In fact, I can’t wait to put this year behind me. It was more bitter than sweet and when I look back on this year I will focus on the sweet. And yet, I have made it through and that’s worth celebrating too.

I am so excited to begin 2018. There is so much I have to look forward to and so much to achieve. I will put on my dancing shoes and dance every day. Every. Single. Day.  Every day will be my own fashion catwalk. I will embrace my younger self. I will be fearless.  To 2018, I sayfb815e458dae64a2ba3d670872599046

On that note, here are 3 videos that I had recorded but hadn’t posted on my Youtube Channel including the garments I made. Enjoy!


For the new year, I wish you all the best and many happy moments with your loved ones.

See you next year

Happy December everyone!

Let me start off by saying thank you for the responses to my last post. The words thank you do not seem adequate but it’s all I have.  Thank you for your kindness and for being there. Thank you for making the effort to reach out to me. I felt too ashamed to feel that I deserved you.  You will never know how the smallest gestures made the biggest difference. Thank you for texting and emailing. Thank you for your gentle encouragement.  I really do appreciate it.

I hope you are all having a wonderful month so far.

I am stoked to share with you my latest Minerva project (also my 12th one – I can’t believe it has been 12 months since I joined the Minerva Craft Blogger Network – tempus fugit indeed). Having spent the past year almost obsessively sewing for myself, I have embarked on a capsule for my husband and if you’d like to read more about it then the link is here to take you to my post on the Minerva site. Here is my favourite picture from the photoshoot to give you an idea…….


I will be back very soon with a post about what I sewed but hasnt made it to the blog.

Until then, Happy Sewing everyone!
