And in the begining....

We here goes - this is the very first post on my very first blog. Although I thought I had a million things to say, I am now struggling to think of anything of any interest to anyone! I am sure this will pass and I will get into the swing of it soon. I suppose an introduction to a good place to start.

I am a very busy mum to an even busier 20 month old girl and partner to a wonderful husband.

I am at home full time where I spend my days entertaining our daughter, cooking and beavering away up in the sewing room while she has the occasional nap. I can't really remember when I started sewing as I have been surrounded my sewing, craft, and art all my life. I remember hand sewing toys and clothes for my dolls and then moving onto to sewing my own clothes - some of which have survived for over 30 years! I will try and dig them out.

My other interests vary - reading if I had more time, art, listening to music, being outside - especially at the beach, hunting for vintage fabric and clothes that I can give a second life, travelling and eating! I am passionate about reading to children from birth, encouraging creativity and a love of the arts in little people, singing and dancing with my daughter and letting her get out and mucky in the garden.

Off to try and get some dresses finished. I am sure I will get the hang of this blogging caper at some stage....
