Speedy sewing and a WINNER!

Hi Everyone!

This is a quick post to share what I’ve been up to and of course reveal who won the pattern pyramid giveaway!!


Firstly if you don’t follow me on Twitter you might not know I’m currently distracted by endlessly cleaning my house for viewers to come see.

This sadly means that my little sewing nook has to stay spotless and I can’t drag out my jeans (or anything else substantial) to work on for fear of leaving fluffy thread filled carnage around me.


I did find time for something small and satisfying. One of the fabrics from my HomeCrafts goodie bag was this sweet floral stripe cotton. I got a fat quarter of each colourway.

Also at the Nottingham meet up I waxed lyrically about the wonder of zippered pouches for beginner sewists.

Then I remembered I could probably do with one for my embroidery project!


I followed this tutorial which I’ve used it the past and in no time had a cute case for all the bits and bobs I need. Perfect for fitting in my handbag and it left minimal mess behind.


Now onto the exciting part…

The winner is Shannon from ShanniLoves!!


To keep things fair I used a random number generator to help pick the winner. It’s a poor substitute for a fluffy assistant when I know other bloggers have lovely creatures to adjudicate their giveaways.

For everyone who didn’t win, hey don’t worry. Just keep an eye out for Shannon’s giveaway and you’ll be in with another chance!!

Have a lovely weekend everybody. I’ve no viewings so I might get to sew something big and messy. Woohooo!!
