My favourite thing at the moments is to sew beautiful things. Dresses, bags, baby slings. I like my creations to be a bit different and a bit special. I love making things for friends and family as I know they will be treasured.

Isobel's Room

Well, my partner, Nick, and I bought the house in March last year and we have spent the last almost 12 months renovating. We have still to do the bathroom, and bits here and there, but on the whole we have done most of the major jobs.

What was originally going to be my office/sewing room when we first moved in soon became the nursery when we found out Isobel would be arriving in January. Luckily, it was easy enough to add the pink to the neutral colour we had painted the bedrooms, although a lot of people thought maybe we should wait until we actually knew she was a girl. I made her quilt and the fabric canvases to match, as well as the picture frame, which actually has a cork backing so keepsakes can be pinned to it.

Next on the list of things to do when I get some spare time (i.e. in between providing the good stuff on tap) is the curtains. Could take a while...
