Brrrr, the weather is finally cooling down at my corner of the world and I'm super excited about starting to think of cosy things to sew.
I always find it easier to sew during winter; I'm not sure why. I think it's something about the darkness of the day coming early, lighting the fire each evening and channelling those home making women of generations past. And then the kids start up with their latest argument over who knows what and shatter my little daydream into oblivion. Ah well, there's always that time after bedtime :)
While we're chatting, I'd like to share Tracey's story. She's one of the most active people on my Facebook page. She got all inspired to finally drag out her sewing machine these school holidays and have a go at making a quilt for her daughter. Not only has she completed her patchwork top (and waiting on some cute buttons to tie the quilt layers together) but two strings of bunting. The sewing bug has definitely bitten and I'm so excited that I was able to help her along the way.
I'm very happy to answer any sewing questions you've got as you sew. For example Tracey wanted to know how to wind thread onto her empty bobbin (she used one of my Resource articles) as well as how to bind her quilt (my fav tutorial is this one by Cluck Cluck Sew).
Are you ever stuck on a step of a pattern? Confused by a term or did they say to so something and you have no idea what they're talking about? Just hit reply to send me an email and ask away. I'm only too happy to help.
Happy Sewing ♥ Sarah x
