Hi, welcome to my blog. My name is Lyndsey and I live in London UK. I'm married to John and we have three grown up children, one son and two daughters. As the name of my blog suggests I love to sew and knit. I do all types of sewing from dressmaking to quilting and embroidery. I also crochet but I don't enjoy it as much as knitting. I also like bead work and bobbin lace making. Unfortunately because I work my time for needle craft is quite limited
My other hobbies include walking, drawing, reading and cooking so you will find a mix of items here.Scamp, our dog and Picasso , the cat love to help with whatever I am doing and are great at testing out the comfort factor of my quilts.
I started this blog in April 2012. I loved reading other people's blogs and decided I'd like to join in. It is great fun to share my projects and the blogging community is very supportive. When I'm a little confused over a particular technique or can't make a decision about fabrics someone will always leave a helpful comment. It's like being part of a huge extended family that spans the world!
Last year was good for sewing with lots of lovely finishes. Here are one or two
When we go walking I try to remember my camera so I can show you some of the British countryside or historic buildings such as Winchester Cathedral where Jane Austen is buried.
How about the view from the office over south west London?
It would be lovely if you wanted to take time to visit some of my older posts. Why not make a cup of tea or coffee and stay a while.
I also have a give away to say thank you for visiting. You don't need to follow my blog but if you want to it would be great to have you along (the tool for following is on the sidebar on the right). I will post anywhere in the world. My give away is a selection of 5 inch charm squares. There are over 40 squares (and I still have a couple to add). They are a mixture as there are some I have been given and some I have left from a project. I will also include a mystery fabric fat quarter.
To win all you need to do is leave me a comment on this post. I will draw the winner on February 15th.
It has been fun to have you stop by and I hope you'll visit again soon. I hope you enjoy a very happy weekend.
