Hello and happy 2018 to you all. Looking back on my 2017 blog posts, I am surprised to see how little I feature.

I have a friend who copies me even to the point of ordering the same food at a restaurant. Every. Single. Time. I find myself purposely not showing her things or telling her where I get things from for fear that moments later she’ll be Googling and adding to basket. I don’t feel flattered, I feel irritated. She’s a chronic copy cat, infringing on my self expression, it’s a form of identity theft but without the consequences.
Nearly every time I sew something, a song gets in my head. Either the name of the pattern, the fabric I’m using or how the garment makes me feel determines the song. And I have a particular song for the dress I’m about to show you, I want you all to stop what you are doing, get up, let loose and take a few minutes to come groove with me.
Come on ladies and gents, GET YOUR GROOVE ON!!!!!!!
And Sach if you’re reading this, I know you’ll be going crazy right now.
