The One where the Evil Masterplan worked

When I was pregnant I wanted to sew as much as I could in the hope my baby would get used to the sound of the sewing machine. That way, once she was born I could use her as an excuse to sew more. “But I need to sew honey, it calms down the baby!” And apparently it worked. I bought a baby carrier today so I could carry her around and get things done around the house. In the evenings she tends to get a bit fussy and I decided to put her in, get behind my sewing machine … Continue reading The One where the Evil Masterplan worked

The One With The Baby

I was totally ready to post about my newly organised sewing room, but that night this little miracle decided it was time to meet mommy and daddy. Meet Emily.

The upstairs are finished … Continue reading The One where I need Holiday Inspiration

The One with All the Big News

Before I get to all my big news I have to tell a little background story: The past few weeks have been crazy busy. About 6 weeks ago our landlord decided that we didn’t pay enough for utilities, so he wanted to raise the price we paid for them. We did some calculations ourselves and turned out we were already paying way too much for utilities. So we told him we were willing to pay more if he could prove to us, we were actually spending that much, if he didn’t want to prove it, he should just let us … Continue reading The One with All the Big News
