    • Hello :-) lovely to meet you!
      It’s always lovely to know that we aren’t just all typing and talking away into the ether that there are people out there ‘listening’.

      • Isn’t that the truth! It can feel that way in this great universe. I’ve found some of the best bloggers by following comment threads on the blogs I’m already enjoying.

        I grew up sewing, than later sewed for a living for a local community theater. I lost touch with it for awhile, too. This year I’m sewing Halloween costumes for me and my sister. It’s a lot of fun.

        Your blog is inspiring.

  1. Love your blog. Love your “way”. Your collection is lovely, but I think Vogue 1247 truly stands out. It’s great on you. I’ve been sewing since I was ~10 years old (the calendar suggests I’m older now; I choose to look the other way). Regrettably, I’ve been rude and negligent to my faithful Bernina lately. You’ve given me a shove and I’m grateful.

    • Vogue 1247 is my all-time favourite pattern, endlessly wearable!
      I neglected my Bernina for many years, she forgave me and we are in a very happy relationship! Enjoy your sewing!

    • Thank you very much, our beaches are not so fabulous at the moment, they are cleaning up flood debris.
      Yes Lizzy is my real name – or at least a shortening of Elizabeth (which is a lot of syllables – thanks parents!). I’m known by lots of names but Lizzy is one of the common ones.
