Welcome to my Blog where I aim to chronicle and share my experiences in Sewing. My Wonderful Mum taught me how to sew many moons ago, but I hadn't sewn for many years until 2012 when my now husband and I decided to get married in Lapland.The only way I could create "The Winter Queen" image I had, was to make it myself. It re-kindled my love of sewing and have been sewing ever since. And yes, that is me in my profile photo…

Make A Garment a Month Challenge
I am not really one for making New Year Resolutions. I am not strong willed! There still remains no resolutions this year although instead, I have decided to set myself a challenge of making one garment every month.
Ok, so I am currently posting items I have made, on here almost every week, so why the challenge you may wonder?
Why? because the work I do is very seasonal. During the winter months I work fewer hours giving more time for sewing. Whereas during the Summer months I work very long hours with few full days off. This is when I find time for myself much harder and this year, to add to this, hopefully, if everything goes through, we will be moving house!!!
I have kind of already started this, but we are already half way through January so I hope I can be excused for this! My aim is to get this completed before January is over! I have read this requires a lot of hand sewing and I need motivating to do this! I am making this for a family event and it's also going to need a dress to go with it (February's challenge perhaps...?!)
