Update June 2020
Life has been a roller coaster in the last few years with family illness, bereavement and my own journey through depression and the start of the menopause. Juggling caring commitments with work, running our youngest daughter to the school bus everyday and supporting our eldest daughter from a distance as she embarked on University life left little time for me.
During lock down, as VE day approached, my Etsy shop burst into life with last minute orders for Red, White and Blue bunting. Cutting and sewing the bunting, reminded me how much I like to sew.
I've altered a summer skirt, made a summer blouse and pair of wide legged summer trousers. Now I know that the blouse pattern works, I'm going to make a blouse, from a piece of cotton fabric from Malawi. My daughter bought it for me during her visit a few years ago.
The range of items on my website will be expanding over the next few months to include bunting, cushion covers and scarves as well as my knitting related items.
The process of making and satisfaction of finishing items helps my depression and improves my mental health. I hope that you will enjoy the journey with me.
