Small Blog Meet (Lily’s Quilts Fan Club)

Me again, apparently I’m very productive when working in my pjs.

I just wanted to quickly tell you about another of Lynne’s (over at Lily’s Quilts) Link ups. (yes I know my blog is starting to sound like a Lily’s Quilts fan club but tbh I don’t care!) It’s called Small Blog Meet, any blog with 50 or less followers can join the link up by writing a post about it and putting the post link on Lynnes blog here. Once you have done it visit four blogs on the link up, introduce yourself and follow the blog. Hopefully four of the bloggers will do the same to you et voila, four shiny new followers for you to entertain!

This is the link up button, make sure if you join in you add it to your blog, you can also find it on Lynne’s blog.

Happy blogging and have a fun weekend.

Blog post número uno

So this is me being brave. I’ve been thinking about starting my own blog to record my sewing projects, successes and failures for a while now but just couldn’t bring myself to put pen to paper (or in this case finger to iPad). I’ve never written a diary but always wished I had, the problem is I’m too chatty, I’m a sharer and the thought of writing a diary seemed a little too isolated. Now a blog on the other hand is much more my style. I can say whatever I want and you lovely people (or person (thanks for reading mum!)) get to tell me I’m an idiot or you think my ideas, hopes and dreams are the same as yours.

I guess I should apologise in advance, I can ramble and go off on a tangent so if I do this please stay with me I will make sense eventually.

Right here’s the bit about me. I’m 28, happily married for 5 years to Sean. We have two gorgeous, if not a little (a lot) hyper boys.

Us

Jack is 4 in a few days and off to school in September, I know everybody says it but the past four years have gone so quickly, it scares me that one day I’m going to wake up and he will be all grown up.

The baby of the family is Grayson, he is 18 months old and a little horror. I cannot take my eyes off him for a second, he loves to climb and do whatever he is not allowed to! Having said that both my monsters are comedians and always make Sean and I smile.

GeeGee

The last two members of our family are Poppy and Pluto, our dogs, they are also a little bit crazy so fit in perfectly. Pops is our 2year old Labradoodle, she is the soppiest horse/dog I have ever met. Last but not least is Pluto, he is our 1 year old Jack Russell cross Yorkshire Terrier, he can be noisy but loves cuddles oh and chasing rabbits.

I like to sew, a lot. I like buying fabric, a lot. I like talking about sewing and my husband, my mum, my dad, my sister and my friends are slowly getting bored of me. This is why I have taken the leap into blogsville, I hope you guys will enjoy reading about my projects and hopefully discussing your projects too. Another of my loves is photography, I am by no means David Bailey but I enjoy taking photos, of anything and everything, so be warned there will be lots of photos here, sometimes these will be of my family and friends or just things that make me smile.

Right, sorry for the seriously long introduction, but now it’s out of the way we can get to the good stuff. SEWING.

Over the last year I have gone from making a cushion because I couldn’t find what I wanted in a shop to selling pieces to friends and family. Over Christmas I even braved selling at a few small Christmas fairs to test the waters and making the majority of my Christmas gifts. Below are some of my completed projects.

Well I have probably over shared enough for today. Thank you for reading, I would love to hear what you think or if you have any questions or anything in particular you would like me to write about in future blogs (yes there will be more!)

Bye for now x
