a sense of control in a world full of chaos


All in all October was a good sewing month. In other ways it has been hard but I've realised just how important sewing, quilting, crafting and designing have become to me. It is my time, my way of blocking everything else out. My way of creating, doing things I want and I'm in control of it. There are so many things I can't control but the fabric, needle and thread are in my hands.


Too Far Quilt, custom cushions available in my Etsy shop, rose star block, High Voltage lampshade, Skull decoration, applique zip bag.

Hoping for a very creative November and to continue to find my sewing joy.

There's still a couple of days left to enter my giveaway and win yourself some haberdashery from Minerva Crafts!

  3. Totally agree with you Lucy - quilting along with a wonderful husband and beautiful kids has seen me through a horrible few months battling pnd!

    Is really important that we have that time to ourselves and left or minds drift off x

  10. When fabric, needle and thread are in your hands, amazing loveliness is created :) Hope whatever is so unpleasant outside your sewing space gets better soon. I've learned how important it is to continue creating during unpleasant times myself this month - it really does help to keep us balanced, doesn't it?
