Can You Dig It?

Lately it seems as though  I have lost all interest in reality. Its a complete bore! and why would I be interested when I could be completely swept up and lost in the world of fairytales?!

Fairytales are everywhere right now! (Tangled, Once upon a time, Snow White & the Huntsman, the up and coming Malificent - if you know more, please let me know!). I'm an easy target, I've loved fairytales since I was a little girl (of course!), not to mention my rather morbid collection of Grimm Fairy tales.

So, naturally, I'm utterly inspired and hoping to share the enthusiasm.

Inspired too?

Most importantly though, I would also like to take this opportunity to announce that very shortly I will be starting a new project  - "The Wicked Stitch"

The plan is to don a different fairytale character (good or bad) for each post. However, I won't be sewing costumes (that would be impractical), rather I will be styling garments that I will wear in real life to create something magical and other worldly.

I'm terribly excited about this, not only will it be a world of fun, but it will give me a chance to play with my new camera and see what it can do.

I've been working away on my first post, and all I will say is it is certainly a little different!

I hope your just as excited as I am, I have a hundred ideas already!

It's a Girl!

I have a confession to make....

In my last post, Knitters, Go Nuts I promised a Part Two. A part two filled with darling, quirky 60's knitting and crochet patterns.
This intention was wholly sincere. I scanned. Labelled. Dated. I was precise. Precise in all but one thing. I scanned them in wrong and cut off half the page ON ALL OF THEM! Yup, I did that. Then I went and gave the books back. "GAVE THE BOOKS BACK?" You ask, exasperatedly!? Yes, I'm sorry. I confess, I am a huge goose.

I felt bad for a minute or two. I considered editing my last post to remove all trace of the secondary promise, but you guys are smarter than that aren't you? Then all remorse was driven from my mind by a new purchase. Funny how shopping can do that.

I bought a Camera - Finally. She is so beautiful.

So join me my fellow sewing friends in welcoming my new Canon Powershot sx40 to the family.

 Camera pictured is not true to size.

I suspect we will have a lot of fun together!
