Sewing and Strawberries

Argh! Sorry for the blog silence this week. I thought I should at least drop in and say Hi.

I have thread sticking to my clothes, my resemblance to a disheveled old lady is remarkable, and I'm in danger of disappearing under a tower of fabric. But I'm loving it! I don't know about you but I love having these bursts of creativity -spending days and days designing and making. And I suppose an impending craft fair is inspiration enough to get you started!

So I really need to get back to it, but before I disappear behind the sewing machine once more, I'll leave you with one of my proudest achievements this year - my first ever strawberry!

The fact that this is the only one of 6 strawberry plants to produce any fruit is beside the point. I'm gonna enjoy having these babies for breakfast soon.


  1. congratulations on your strawberries. I am rubbish at growing things, and was thrilled last year when I managed about 10 strawberries. (I grew about 3 the year before and my friends dog ate them!). Anyway this year we have loads and its so exciting. So hopefully next year you will have even more.

  2. Fingers crossed! I have some courgettes, tomatoes and peppers too but no fruit / veg so far. Hopefully I'll manage to get something to eat at the end of it all.


Thanks for reading! Looking forward to your comment.
