I’m pretty sure I found all of these whilst on The Fold Line website.  The Fold Line itself is a great encyclopaedia for us sewists, I keep finding loads on the forum.  It’s something I’d recommend to anyone who sews as most questions have been asked and answered!

http://beebeeshandmadedress.blogspot.co.uk/  – I can’t remember why I clicked but I’m sure happy I did as a Seamwork “Mesa” was reviewed and shown off by the lovely Stevie.  It’s been one of the Seamwork patterns that have been on my radar and really must get down as I’m sure Little Miss Lorraine has done one as well and it looks so good!

https://sewinprogress.com/2017/02/25/the-saunio-cardigan/ – As you can see the title just cries out with the saunio cardigan!  Ha Ha and I’m not quite sure if you know that I wasn’t particularly blown away at first.  Well that changed, thanks to this version and a whole lot of other versions of Saunio.  I love her layout of her blog as well.

https://stitchingupparisblog.wordpress.com/tours/ – Who wouldn’t run around in sheer hyper happiness shouting “yes, Yes YES” to Fabric tours in Paris?  Personally, I love a macaron, but combining a tour with fabric and Paris is sheer amazing in my books … I wonder who many pennies I would have at the end of one of these tours?  Probably zilch! I better started saving if I want to go!

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

Keep stitching!

My favourite blogs of the month: February

This feature is new.  Yes, Brand spanking new on my blog.

Why?  Well, clearly it’s quite cool (in my opinion) to share a blog that you may or may not know about.

This month I’ve decided to share with you Sea Salt & Stitches blog.  It’s brand new to me and I love her style!

Little Miss Lorraine (another new favourite!) mentioned her via a blog post all about bullet journaling (something I’m trying out myself, Thanks to these two and Holly Dollie) and I suddenly on her website within a flash.  Yes. A FLASH!

I’ve also had a sudden explosion organisation.  This involves coming up with a lot of blog post being named via my #makenine2017 list (which is soon to be released!) and some other projects, both selfish and selfless.  Plus splurges (fabric and sewing related pieces) and “Sew Shop Local” features.  This sudden explosion has definitely got to do with the idea of bullet journaling.  I think this is going to be an interesting journey.  I feel both inspired and empowered seeing the origin of the Bullet Journal.

Just a snippet of what’s in the pipeline!

You get I’m all excited about the Bullet Journal, don’t you?

Anyhow enough of that talk because there will be a fully loaded blog post coming very soon to your screens with my version.

Sea Salt & Stitches‘ has lovely tutorials also.  I’m looking forward to trying a couple out – particularly the Christmas apron and the flower pot pincushion!

The dresses that Suzie has made have a similar taste in what I want to be able to achieve. They are all gorgeous.  My favourite dress is the tartan washi’s – perhaps that’s the wee Scottish girl calling out of me!  The washi dress is definitely on my top 20 and by the looks of it, it’s now a firm favourite!

Very keen to try this beauty of a dress out!

The blog site is nice and clean, easy to navigate and quite delightful!

Little Miss Lorraine is another recent addition to the blog reading list.  I found her blog because I subscribe to her YT channel, which is one of my favourite channels to watch.

Her blog also features her Etsy shop where you can buy her handmade items – which are all lovely, so lovely it’s quite difficult to decide which one to get!

LML’s YT channel is a delight to watch and so is her blog.  It took me a while to actually click that she has a blog (don’t worry it’s me, not you LML!), I’m sometimes a bit slow to catch on!

Another very informative sewing blog with lots of things to keep you entertained for hours!

Last but not least, is the delightful Hollie Dolly.  Again, I was slow to click on that she had a blog also.  I think that has a lot to do with the number of ideas I want to do.  Seriously I am OCD with ideas for this, that and the other lol.

Anyhow, Holly Dollies’ site is quirky featuring what’s she has made and her latest fabric hauls.  I can’t get over how smiley she is on camera – she is so sweet!

So that’s a wee scoop into why these are my favourite blogs this month … Now, how many will I come across before next month lol!
