Ah, the end of at-least-a slightly-shorter-than-usual week! I’ve been rather unproductive, having been feeling rotten with a combination of sniffles and dentistry… Still, I’ve made a bit of progress with my tapestry, ie, something you can do whilst in bed feeling sorry for yourself. Continue reading “Friday Favourites”
Aaaah. How are you all doing? We’ve just got back from our summer holiday, so I’m feeling suitably… relaxed… I’ve been without my sewing machine for over a week, so been doing a bit of tapestry instead. Slowly…. Continue reading “Completed: Strawberry Fields Baby Quilt”
Sorry about the radio silence… I’ve got many many WIPs on the go at the moment, which aren’t always the most inspirational things to blog. Also, we’ve been on holiday a bit, and work is super busy, which means I’m staring at a computer most of the day – hardly conducive to wanting to do the same thing at home! Continue reading “Completed: Lil’ Luxe dress”
Am I the absolute last person on earth to have made this dress? Possibly… Except, no I won’t be, because it’s an amazing pattern, and deserves to keep on truckin’ long after the novelty value fades! She’s a few years old now, Anna, and I believe was super-popular on release – I didn’t buy it then, because the photo-shoot pictures didn’t really seem like it would suit me, or my lifestyle.

…Although, what I really wish is that it was yesterday, before just over half my nation voted to abandon 40 years of civilised co-operation with the human beings that share our bit of the planet. I’m embarrassed to be British. That said, this is how democracy works, so if we don’t want to be subject to the whims of a power-crazed dictator, I guess we have to live with those of our fellow citizens. However… Just saying.

It’s official, guys, I love to change my mind! But in my opinion, if you make a right decision, you don’t ever regret it. If you’re wondering whether it was the right decision? It wasn’t!
Blog name, domain etc is switching back to barricadesofheaven.com. It’s consistent with my Instagram, and although it’s not stitchy-specific (part of the reason I changed it), I just like the ‘feel’ of it so much better!
So anyway, sorry for messing you about (again), but hopefully you’ll all still get posts and that – I’m so appreciative of everyone who follows this little blog – thanks for sticking with me, we’re not done yet!
Hello again! Socks are a bit addictive, aren’t they? These are my second pair, although not being one of those bloggers we’re always being warned about, who only show you the things that turn out great, I will admit to making a very sad prototype which was all saggy round the picot and pointy at the toe… It was so depressing, that I couldn’t bear to make its pair, but I still thought my idea was good, so amended the pattern to address the issues.
