- Stitching with others is so bloody brilliant!!! A few snapshots from today's Scrappy Collage workshop at Grace's gorgeous new @beyond_measure_uk space. These pics perfectly sum up today for me: enjoying cloth and thread and each other / appreciating how each person has their own unique textile & thread handwriting / realising how much of ourselves goes into each stitch / reframing perceived "imperfections" as the things that make us "us" / feeling the benefits and joy of slowing down, focusing on the process instead of the end result and being willing to go where the process takes us.Beginnings.Some proper introductions to our beautiful hens who have now been with us for a whole week (already feels like they've always been here 🥰): 1 - Clara - first into everything 2 - Frida - big and blousey 3 - Barbara - gobby show-off 😆Our hen house finally has some residents!! Now just need to think of some names....🤔

She recently made the Roehampton Culottes from my book “A Beginner’s Guide to Making Skirts” and I instantly wanted to steal them! They’re so my style; Aimee’s chosen the kind of fabric I’d have gone for and wears them pretty much how I would choose to.
It was fairly unanimous; Sara’s gorgeous denim Fulwood dress won your vote for this month’s MIY Maker. What impresses me even more about this is that it’s Sara’s first ever dress! Quite a way to start your sewing journey.
Congratulations to Sara who can now choose her next MIY Collection sewing pattern for free and I’m waiting with baited breath to see Sara’s next few dressmaking projects.
Reckon you can be October’s MIY Maker? Post your makes using my patterns online and you might make the final 4. Full details of how to enter here.
I look forward to seeing your makes!
