I’m so looking forward to a day in the very near future when I can sit down and fill you all in about recent attic antics!  The festive period has proven to be one of the busiest, both in work and outside of it.  I can’t wait to just sew, write and drink tea with gay abandon!

For now then, a visual feast.  A little stash addition that had me weak at the knees.  Carolyn Friedlander’s Botanics collection, in all its gorgeous glory.  I may have or may not have had some of these prints already…

Enjoy, for however long you want, then check out all the other fabric goodness over at Molli Sparkle’s Sunday Stash.



On Tuesday I had the pleasure of being interviewed by my quilty friend Tsonki.  We connected during this year’s Fat Quarterly Retreat and I was so excited when she asked me to appear on her podcast Me Being Crafty.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little nervous!  I’d never done anything like it before and I’m not the greatest fan of my own voice (I’ve yet to meet anyone who is!) and I was worried I’d freeze up and not be able to find the words.  A few minutes in and I was totally relaxed.  Tsonki is a great host and asked me some really thought-provoking questions.  I had so much fun and was excited when she asked me come back.

You can listen to the full podcast on Tsonki’s blog by clicking here, or listen on iTunes here, or Stitcher here.  I’ve had a listen and I’m apologising in advance for the numerous times I say exciting!
