The Sixties Cleopatra

So, do you remember these curtains?


My husband's Grandmother gave me these curtains (thank you Baba!), I think they're from the 50s or 60s. With some encouragement from Twitter, I decided to turn these into a little 60s dress in time for my holiday to Egypt - I leave tomorrow by the way and I am typing this as my nails dry - yep I'm a cool multi-tasker (probably with smudged nails)!

Rockin with Rolls & Rems

It's so nice to find out that a really great fabric store is on your doorstep.

I've just moved to Greenwich and I remembered that the Lewisham branch of Rolls & Rems is just over a 10 minute walk away. Before Saturday, I had never been to this branch before, only the one on Holloway Road, which I thought was okay but nothing to write home about. However, the Lewisham branch (as I have heard on the sewing grapevine) is tonnes better!

The wonder of you: my sewing room

Oops, it's been a while...again. But since my last post I have moved flats and went on a work trip, so forgive me!

My new flat is incredible. A wise move from Dalston (East London) to Greenwich (SE) has given us so much more space, including a whole spare bedroom! I can't believe it. And, my wonderful husband has let me have the whole space to myself for sewing and work.
