About me

Welcome to my little sewing blog! I’ve been sewing since my mother finally (!) let me have a needle and thread aged seven, happily hand stitching with her scraps until I was a uni student and wanted to sew myself some clubbing dresses. Mum showed me how to use her sewing machine, and a fascinated passion was born. 20ish years on, with clubbing days behind me, a lovely husband, sweet small boy and hairy little terrier later, and I’m a sewing addict, with a passion for pretty fabrics and patterns. This blog is to chronicle some of my sewing journey and share and learn from my fellow bloggers; I’ve switched to WordPress from Tumblr (May 2015) so you might now be able to say hello back if you like! I sell some of my goods to fund my out-of-hand fabric addiction, and love custom making the perfect thing for someone, although I keep having to rein myself in as this is a definitely a hobby rather than a business! So much fabric prettiness out there, it’s hard not to share it. Happy crafting, Poppy xx

    1. Hello! Thanks so much for commenting! I only do a little tatting now and then, I’m so busy quilting and sewing, there is never enough time! I only do needle tatting too. I do by patterns from Etsy now and then but really I don’t tat enough to end up buying a lot for it. I had to re-buy my Rebecca Jones book (which I see you also recommend!) as I have totally lost my 30 year old copy! It’s probably with someone I lent it to. My tatting is not as wondrous as yours, you’re very talented! Tiaras sound amazing. ❤
