Before we moved to Sydney for a year, we thought we would go and see ALL the places and I’d visit ALL the fabric shops within that time. That didn’t happen, as there were only so many weekends free, plus life was busy too. I did visit a number of fabric stores though. Since we’ve … More Fabric Shop in Sydney: My Hung Hurstville.
Hi Friends! Back in July I had the honour to join the Maker’s Team / Blogger Network of a large fabric and sewing supplies company, Minerva.

When I was pregnant some months ago, I was one of those blessed expectant mothers who do not have major aches, pains or nausea from the pregnancy.

Picking up where I left off in the last post…I made 2 tops to wear to Spain, and the first one was featured in said post.

The title is so unimaginative! I can’t help it. It’s been quite hot these past few days, the last of the Summer heat bleeding into Autumn. Sometimes I just can’t think of a more interesting title. So let’s jump right into it, shall we? I made this top in a green cotton jersey. The significant … More A Green Top [Butterick 5354].
Happy Valentine’s Day! I had wanted to make the Sewaholic Cambie Dress since it came out many years ago (2011? 2012?).
