Hello! Thanks for stopping by…
I’m Catherine and I just can’t stop sewing! I’m a teacher so my working life is pretty hectic and can easily spill over if I’m not disciplined enough. I’m also a musician: I play the violin in various orchestras (such as Sinfonia of Birmingham) and quartets and I sing, also in several small groups (such as The Armonico Consort). I love that my evenings are either spent socialising or music-making (or, more often, both!) but I do find it hard to switch off and sewing is a real oasis of calm for me (until the inevitable unpicking…)
My wonderful and totally inspirational Granny has been teaching me patchwork for years now and I love that we have this shared passion. We often spend a blissful day or two stitching away together.
Starting this blog has been a real eye-opener for me in terms of looking back at everything I’ve made and how much I’ve learned about both about sewing and myself along the way.
I’d love to hear what you think about these little projects and to find out what you’re making too!
