New adventures

New adventures

I love autumn. It's my favourite time of year. Possibly because I have a September birthday, or possibly because I work for a university and autumn means the start of the academic year. I also loved the start of the school year in a geeky kind of way - new shoes, conkers and unmarked exercise books. Whatever the reason, I always have a spurt of energy to start new things at this time of year. Colder weather and the nights drawing in are also perfect for staying in and sewing.

I have neglected my blog recently one one reason or another (I won't bore you will tales of work and illness). I also thought I had neglected my sewing, but actually looking through photos of the last few months I've made quite a lot.

New ventures

Looking ahead to the next few months, I am very excited to be working with Minerva Crafts through their blogger network. I have my next three makes planned using some of their beautiful fabrics: a Christmas version of the Betty dress, a Breton stripe Coco top and a Sew Over It ultimate pencil skirt. There will be a brilliant fabric giveaway coming soon too. I can't wait to get started!

I am also working on a new children's pattern for Love Sewing magazine.
