My goodness, what a pompous title – I’ve said it before anyone else thinks of it, but it is up there to perhaps explain in a very small way my absence of late.

First, the title;  when I re-ignited this site way back in February this year, I said that after a long hiatus I had decided to just use it for recording “things I have learned and made this year”. Now I really should check what I had said before deciding that the blog might be veering off course and not posting – I had thought that I had decided to write only about my handmade wardrobe – when I hadn’t narrowed the field that much at all – I’ve just checked!!!!

Hopefully more regular posting – but although I am extremely good at waffling I don’t want to outwear any welcome I might possible have – as if!@**

I love all things creative and an eternal enthusiast. I am enduringly interested in absolutely everything remotely creative and never happier than when being shown 'how to'.
