Sewjo: Lost and Found

It's a strange thing when you have lost interest in something that you usually love to do.   There was an odd dullness in my life these past few weeks because of the passing of our Wonderful Mother - my Biggest and Most Loving Supporter.  She was someone who constantly asked what was new in… Continue reading Sewjo: Lost and Found

Back again! Are you bored with me yet?

That's good, because it looks like I'm only getting started ... seems like I have been bitten by the "bag bug" and have made another.  My sister gave me a box of upholstery fabric (the cat "Sophie" is all mine) and I made my first bag with fabrics from it, my tote bag, which I… Continue reading Back again!

I used to buy more bags than clothes.  Every time I walked past a bag shop I would stop in.  After "just stopping in" a few days in a row, I'd finally buy what I had been looking at.  Now that I think about it, I pretty much always bought bags with the same "insides"… Continue reading I have to have the perfect Zippered Crossbody bag … (Part 1)

A simple, but necessary project! (And my #reSEWlutions!)

Perhaps you have seen these photos on my Instagram account?  It seems I can't crochet in peace - Simon will steal my ball of yarn away and Sophie will play with the length of yarn.  This calls for a simple, but necessary project! Perhaps you have seen this advertisement on Facebook or Instagram?  This is… Continue reading A simple, but necessary project! (And my #reSEWlutions!)

I finished my dress!

Well ... actually my sister's dress - part of my "Sister's Sewing Project".  It's a border print and I've fallen in love with it.  Border print fabric is not easy to find!   My sister wanted this dress - she took this photo from the TV!  It was her inspiration.   And she found a… Continue reading I finished my dress!
