Busy Times...

Well I've been busy with everything Stitched Up to be honest and everything else too! I've really gotten into tweeting, which I'm not quite sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing, I do enjoy it & I've "tweeted" with some very lovely people!

I'm also at the moment sewing a rather marvelous apron for a friend of mines mother, I'm making it from an old anorak, and some cotton/linen napkins that were given to me, I know it sounds rather bizarre at this point, but when you see the finished product and the actual photographs I'm sure you will agree that it's adorable!

There really is so much you can do with things that are something else!! - I love transforming them & I love telling people what they used to be! - It's sort of magical. I've been looking at a brilliant couple of blogs recently, the first one is


UPCYCLIST reports on beautiful and innovative upcycling projects around the globe. We like restoring, recycling, reclaiming, reviving, remaking, repurposing, reusing, reloving..."

It's a brilliant & inspiring blog, with fantastic photographs & reports of wonderfully clever designer & makers. Also the second blog is which is fantastic for practical tutorials etc. I absolutely love the whole concept! It's all about sharing & encouraging others to upcycled & refashion too! I think I need to get on with cr
eating some tutorials, I find that when I'm creating something, I do it VERY organically, so sometimes I find it hard to remember to take photographs inbetween each stage...there is no set formula I just do it & play and replay & get carried away and lost in the process...but one of my summers ambitions is to create some more tutorials!

Also another wonderful blog is that of the marvelous Betty Bee, she is now also writing for the Guardian & a friend of a friend. She seems to be promoting how lovely vintage living can be! As far as I'm concerned, it's more ethical than buying throw-a-way fashion.

And this is my new label...Simple & to the point
