An ex-offshore Tigeress, home from the North Sea, wandering onshore and wondering "just what can I make with the 50km of very fancy string I have in the house...!"

So I started sewing!
I finally got round to getting a decent sewing machine at the end of October 2011 as we had John Lewis vouchers we had received for our wedding back in 2010 and we had never got round to using them as being old buggers when we got hitched then we had most of the housey stuff you would get from JL. So, as long as I promised to get round to making stuff for my DB then a sewing machine was a'right. The rest of the vouchers went on a fridge freezer because we really know how to rock and roll!
Ebay has been plundered for fabric and patterns. A theme is emerging of loud and in your face fabric just ripe for the 50's to 70's patterns that seem to be attracting me!
There are mistakes (obviously) but everything is wearable in public!
