Making circles

I ran the first of my circle skirt workshops last Saturday. On the morning of the workshop the heavens opened and torrential rain fell from the sky forming large puddles on the drive – not the only circles to be made that day!

However, it wasn’t too long before the sky cleared and the suns rays soon evaporated them away, so much so, we had a glorious end to the sewing day and I was able to take a picture of these lovely skirts outside in the sunshine!










The design of this skirt is really flattering and it suits any figure. It really is a must for your wardrobe, as either a summer cotton skirt or a warm wooly winter version. I will certainly be making a range for my wardrobe. More workshops will be running in the coming months, so check out my workshop calendar for future dates. This workshop is even suitable for anyone new to sewing, without the need to follow any complicated pattern!

Thoughts of France

As the sun shone today I began to dream of my forthcoming trip to France… lazy days to enjoy the surrounding countryside of the Loire region. I was planning a sewing project for my Etsy shop as stocks are getting low! With thoughts of France still in my mind, I was drawn to this beautiful piece of grey linen fabric with sunflowers that I’d purchased – I suppose attracted at the thought of fields of sunflowers in Provence!

I love this roomy shoulder bag. Although made for my shop, I am tempted to make another for myself ready for my trip! Perfect for a day out,  far too nice as a picnic bag but I’d certainly fit plenty of baguettes in this!
