A step in the right direction

I've been pretty busy (in between the lovely distractions of children's birthdays) developing my own kiss lock purse pattern. It took a while to get it just right but I've made around 15 purses with it so far and there'll be many more to follow. This Mr Fox purse was the first successful one I made...

I've also been having a go at making a some cute wristlet keyfobs...

As well as making I've been photographing, editing and uploading my work to Folksy. 
I'm ready to get making again tomorrow and am feeling the urge to make something Christmassy!

Where has the time gone?

Wow! About 3 years has passed since my last post and it's been one hell of an eventful rollercoaster ride during that time! However, I'm back...

Hello again !

Just dipping my toes in the blogging water and maybe having a bit of a paddle to begin with until my youngest starts school in September at which time I plan to perform gentle CPR on Belovedly and hopefully bring my once fledgling business back to life. I'm in the midst of sorting out my new sewing room, which is nearly complete, I'll show you around it when it's finished. It's only the box room but it should be more than adequate to get me started. 

I'll leave you with a condensed list of our goings-ons over the past few years...
  • Moved house
  • Bought a pet fish
  • Renovated our new home (7 rooms down - 2 to go)
  • Had one of our children diagnosed with a chronic disease
  • Plucked out too many grey hairs and resorted to dying it 
  • Done a course in garment construction at college
  • Bought an overlocker
  • Mastered Stand Up Paddleboarding
  • Taken up Pilates
