I’m so delighted to participate in Sew Grateful Week hosted by My Happy Sewing Place! I truly feel blessed to have found a past-time that I love, that relaxes me, that challenges my brain, that allows me to be creative and that’s resulted in so many new friendships and connections both online and in the real world. And, at the end of it all, a new garment or accessory is the result. Win-win!

The Fabric In Action
The first two fabrics played centre stage in a Red themed outfit I sewed for Sew Red October. The solid red fabric and the striped fabric were used to colour block my By Hand London Polly Top and the striped fabric was also used to line the yoke and make pockets for my wide legged culottes. The stars and stripes fabric was used to make men’s pyjamas for my dad.
