Catching my Eye

Although I haven’t been sewing as much as I would like, and blogging even less, I have continued to spend some of my free time reading sewing blogs and trying to keep track of new fabrics, patterns and general sewing news. I thought it could be good to write a post now and again with bits and pieces that have caught my eye. I would love to hear whether you like them, have purchased anything similar, or can recommend something you’ve come across. 

To be clear, these are just things I have seen and liked, this post is in no way sponsored or affiliated to a particular company or website. 


Of all of these beauties, I think my favourite could be the Dear Stella collection at the bottom. I haven’t yet purchased any of these (my stash is still very well stocked!) but took screen shots as I saw them, just in case. 

I’m also currently lusting over two new jump suit patterns, (which I never thought I would say) the Marigold and the Poppy. The Poppy could well be my favourite, actually. Can you recommend?

    Lovely fabric choices, I especially like the second one, it looks like it could be silk? Strangely I’ve been lusting after jumpsuits, especially after Tilly released the Marigold with all the design hacks, so far I’ve resisted as I have the GBSB book from last year which has a very similar jumpsuit in but with a flounce, (which I’ll omit) – free download here if you’re interested http://www.simplysewingmag.com/downloads/free-download-gbsb-cami-top-jumpsuit/ – no instructions though! I’ve bought some fabric from Fabworks & am ready to go! Good luck with you plans.

  2. What a good idea to take screenshots of fabrics you like. I’m always forgetting where I saw something and end up missing out. I prefer The Poppy:)

  3. I’m also looking at the jump suits…and it’s really not something I’ve ever considered wearing before. I think I prefer the poppy but I like the marigold trousers. I love all those fabrics too…but I’ve got too much in my stash to justify buying anything right now!

#football #sport #sports #court #outdoors #optoutside #sky #clouds #bluesky #nightfall #twilight #bluehour #violet The landscape is changing and whilst the trees are still vibrant, many of the fields have been harvested and are looking drab. Looking at Wilfie's expression however, the surroundings don't detract from his enjoyment of the 10 mile run he just accompanied me on. He kept up perfectly and is now snoozing beside me. He's a good dog. •
