IMG_2472It’s been a long time coming…

Northern mama long gone South who loves music, reading, baking, animals (real and pretend!), exercise, and has now returned to sewing. I write for a living, but as a copywriter for charities (darling) so if you can spare £15 to help the panda sew then… (no, only joking. Really.)

This is my chance to improve my stitching while writing about it, punctuated by song lyrics (can’t help myself, I think in lyrics too often to be normal) with an ever-changing soundtrack of bloody good music, with an occasional cake thrown in. Best keep leaping around/throwing a kettlebell/walking the dawg to offset this sedentary life then.

I simply adore the gals of the online sewing community: talented, supportive, encouraging – how we should treat each other!  I’m inspired by lots of blogs but I’m indebted to Tilly, Jane and Roisin who opened the door and held it ajar for me to peep tentatively inside. First steps, let’s see if I can still sew in a straight line…

One last thing, I like to hide behind my panda mask; I would have preferred a badger face, but hey, whatever’s to hand.

‘Maybe see you later,’ the Panda sighs.

    Hi – I see you have made both the Coco and Marianne dress. I would like to purchase one of the two patterns but can’t make up my mind which one! Can you maybe give some insight into the positive and (if any) negative of working with both patterns? My purpose for the dress will be comfy, easy wear, school run, chores, coffee-catch up, allrounder dress!:) Christa

      Hi there
      I may fly in the face of popular opinion, but I prefer the Marianneand am just about to make another. I like both patterns but style wise this edges it for me 🙂
