The new sewing pattern by a new designer, the Celestial dress is the most best dress I've ever made, for serious. Its got it all going on; style, comfort, practicality and a uniquely modest, (one is a Lady) contemporary, eminently versatile design. Yah, I like it.Read More

Working working working making making making. It's been a full one year since this my website has been online & the work that has been generated by the simple task of collating & publishing a post every two weeks or so is amazing, to me.
This post is few words & all studio progress photos. Behold:Read More
My sewing has up till now been a very quiet solo hobby, but since I started this artworkerprojects, I've discovered the happy sisterhood of sewingland! There are lots of fabulous people out there sewing most of their own clothes, just like me! And I'm joining in now! And I never join groups! But sewingland is fun and here is my part of Shorts On The Line August shorts appreciation society. And I will try to not be justifying posting about "just" sewing ever again.Read More
Granny Corner, thank heavens for Granny and the Corner. I've never called anyone Granny before, except for me, I'm my own bloody Granny when it comes to making that's not artyness. I repair to my womanly occupations when the going gets confused/lost/tired/uninspired or seethingly bitter and twisted and kinda stalled, in my studio. I've been liking it here a lot over here for a few months now.Read More
At the moment, we're at home. Granny style. Sewing and...baking and...yeah, watching way heaps of tv on my laptop with headphones. Mmmmm headphones.
And I really need to use some stash fabric, my storage facility is scaring me.
I recently submitted a proposal for "Colourful Decorative Abstract Panels", to suit a specific client brief. The commission would involve producing several large-ish panels for the public areas of a new residential development...The designs for this are along a similar vein to another commission I undertook for a project in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, two years ago...Read More

Hooray! Week three of wearing a self-made piece of clothing every day and I'm equal parts tired of thinking about what I'll wear every morning & fascinated to find out how this challenge plays out over the next two weeks. I'll need to find some new combinations of my me-mades & work out some new matchy matchies. Interesting. (To me.)Read More
So its week two and nary a problem with wearing self-made gear...and I've been quite surprised at how many of my clothes I do make myself. I just don't prioritise my self made gear & I am beginning to see that the clothes I make myself more accurately portray me as me & they are something to be proud of. They are often my more adventurous tops, pants and dresses, things I need to make because I cant find them out there or they just strike me as being a happy combination of fabric, design and purpose.Read More
So this is a progressive post for Week One of the MMM14 challenge, in which I'll document the days I've worn me-made clothes. My pledge was to wear at least three (or more - like everything, IMO, more is always better) made-by-me items of clothing per week.Read More
This is "... the popular online me-made/self-stitched challenge which asks sewers/knitters/crocheters/refashioners to wear hand-created clothing every day for a month." I'm in!Read More
