I’ve been MIA for a while. Life and all. But 2018 is the year I want to start blogging again because I still sew (a lot), I miss telling others about it and IG is just not cutting it (the timeline drives me crazy) 2018 is also the year I want to stop caring about my weight.

After organising my fabric stash I was left feeling a bit weird about my fabric. Part of the reason I went into sewing was the fact that I would be able to coordinate my wardrobe better. But organising my stash made it very clear that I love buying pretty fabrics but didn’t stand still to think about whether they would match the rest of my … Continue reading The One with All the Colours
