I do however have a new love........sewing! It’s true I'm addicted. I actually can’t believe it myself, the most sewing I’ve ever done is sew a button and I never found that easy but I heard about these sewing classes on the school playground so I sought out the lady, ambushed her one morning and that's it - a new sewing addict is born. After a 121 lesson with the lovely Kerrie who patiently taught me the basics of using a sewing machine I made a pin cushion. Now it’s not great, the sewing is seriously dodgy but I MADE A PIN CUSHION!!!!
Next day I borrowed my mom’s 30 year old machine and made a bag, yes I made a bag! What has happened to me? My mom was in shock. She’s been telling me to sew for years but I wasn't interested at all, I just got her to make my curtains and alter clothes instead. But a week of watching tutorial videos, making bags and visiting fabric shops and my addiction took hold so bad I bought myself a sewing machine. My kitchen was then took over by the sewing fairy and me this fairy is super messy!
I love making bunting and bags the best, I find them easy and the satisfaction of seeing the result of my work quickly is amazing. My 'thing' seems to be style, lots of skulls and crossbows. I spend hours looking a fabric websites thinking what I could make.
It’s not just about sewing either. There will be craft workshops, crafternoon teas, craft demonstrations, promoting and selling local handmade gifts, weekly craft groups and much more. Take a look at the Living in Loveliness Facebook page for more information.
