[QUICKIE FRIDAY  ]You always know when you are putting off doing something when you resort to folding fabric, sorting patterns and generally organising your sewing space. So what was I avoiding doing all day Friday? The buttonholes of course.

After Terrible Thursday I thought I should take a step back and get back some enthusiasm for the project. I always find that enthusiasm overcomes fear and gives you confidence and I find I get that enthusiasm from looking at the excellence of others.  I went through all my sewing magazines, sorted those to go and those to keep, strangely more have gone out than stayed which can’t be bad for organisation. I also find the Vogue Sewing Book still a source of all that’s wonderful about sewing, even after 40 years [I bought it in the 70’s]. Has it worked? You betcha!   I am raring to go  – tomorrow!


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'.
