My first post....

Well I have spent the last week or so getting my blog all set up, so I thought it was about time I actually posted to it!  I have always sworn I would never have a blog, how embarrassing writing all those things for strangers to read!  Besides I don't have anything interesting to say anyway.  Which is why I figured that I was pretty safe when it comes to being embarrassed because no one will want to read this anyway!

So I wanted to do this to try and keep track of all the things I make, and to motivate me to do more.  So here are my latest projects!

I recently signed up to Quilt Fabric Delights Bagalicious Club and finished my first bag last week.  I wasn't overly happy with it though, the opening gaped, and even more so once I had my purse and my phone and my pager and everything else I carry around in it.  So today I unpicked the facing and moved the handles to the sides instead of the end and love it now!

So then I had a few scraps left over, and I found this fabric basket tutorial from Pink Penguin so spent an enjoyable afternoon sewing. I found a lovely gray wool suiting fabric that I used on the bottom and handles, and love how it turned out.

I will not tell you how many times I had to unpick because I had sewn that text fabric upside down!!


  1. Welcome to blogging!! I enjoy my blog to use it sort of as a diary if you will.

  3. Hi! Welcome to blogging! I, too, started my blog to keep track of the things that I make. But pretty soon you will begin to "make friends" with other bloggers and you will begin to post about all sorts of stuff. It's really a lot of fun!

    Thanks for coming by my blog and entering my give away. Good luck!
