making plans update; sticking to my resolutions!

So far so good. I have made two blocks for my Gypsy Wife quilt, only about 25 to go ~(*’><‘*)~. I’m posting the blocks on Instagram as I go. Do you follow me on Instagram? If not, do! I’m a very visual person and am always posting pictures of nice sewing machines and trees and stuff. I’m here.



I’m working on my gorgeous Carousel crochet along blanket again. It took a backseat whilst I finished my christmas present knitting and I can’t crochet and watch tv so it’s a morning thing only so progress isn’t fast but I only have 5 large pentagons to go and then the border!





My sociable sewing sessions are finally working. This is the third time I’ve tried running these and now it’s taking off. I’m so chuffed. There’s been such a lovely

variety of people and projects already, people have made dresses and bunting anf worked on tailored shirts and skirts etc. The next session is on Sunday 5th

February and there’s plenty more throughout February and March!  Book here!

I’ve made the prototype of my wedding dress and fit first time round, no adjustments needed at all. Amazing! I’ve also made 8 meters of rainbow bunting so I’m wellon track! Later in the year I will get you all involved in bunting etc making so watch this space!


I’ve finished knitting the shawl for Sarah I started in Scotland over Christmas. I found all this lush yarn in a Paisley

charity shop for 20p a ball and started a shwal with it. I ended up using quite a bit of pink and coral too to inject a bit of colour into the winter 🙂

And I’ve finished the Hermione’s everyday socks in Helen’s stunning Prism break yarn. Lush pattern and yarn 🙂


I am blogging more and I am actively doing my Illustrator course finally after almost 6 months of inaction. I haven’t eaten ANY sweets, cake, biscuits or indeed very much hidden sugars (pizza, juice, sauces) for three weeks now. I feel more energetic and my eyes aren’t as dry but I haven’t lost a single ounce. Argh. Must be my age!

How are you all getting on with your new year’s resolutions?
