I'm putting the finishing touches to my Stowe bag. ;) I'm doing it the fancy way and binding each seam with bias tape by hand. It makes for such a neat finish!

I finally found the perfect buttons for my Alder Shirtdress! I'm pretty excited as they're exactly what I was looking for. Now I can finish my dress. ;)

I just wound off a spindleful of handspun cotton. It's time to spin some more!

I have a second Stowe bag in the works! I just love the first one I did so much that I want to make many more. The bag is inside out here and still unfinished. I'm using the exact same fabrics as for my first, but in reverse; I find that they just go so perfectly together. ;)

I hate how familiar this feeling of horror is getting. Manchester, my heart goes out to you today. 💔

I'm making more bias tape! It's definitely my favourite way to use up scraps of fabric. ;)

I just finished my first Stowe bag! I'm extremely happy with it, it's the perfect project bag for my knitting. :) It's also such a handy pattern for using leftover fabrics. The grey chambray comes from my Alder Shirtdress. For the bias and inside pockets, I used a gorgeous organic cotton with feathers that I made a skirt of last year. (You can see it better on the last photo where I put the bag inside out.)

This is the latest addition to my growing scissors collection and I'm a fan. :) I love sewing knits, but don't have a serger, so trimming hems and seams is a bit of a challenge with traditional scissors. These duckbill appliqué scissors from @ernestwrightandson are just perfect for the task!

I finished my toucan dress a few days ago. I simply love how quick and comfortable knit projects are! They're my favourite to sew at the moment. ;)

Already working on my next sewing project. This time, I'm experimenting the use of clips to replace pins on a knit fabric. I quite like it so far!

I'm so happy to see this dress come together after months of planning and weeks of sewing! Making my first shirtdress was definitely a challenge, and it's far from perfect, but I'm so glad I managed to pull through. Now, I just need to find the perfect buttons. ;)

Slowly getting back into cotton spinning after quite a long while! I didn't realize how much I had missed it. It's so good to be spinning again. ;)

I love how this sweater is shaping up. It has such a lovely cable pattern!

Making some bias tape for my current sewing project. What a lovely way to use up my Liberty scraps!

Started a new sweater! All those cables I've been knitting on baby clothes made me want to make a project with cables for myself too. ;)

I am making a little hat to match my baby cardigan. It's knitting up really quickly! I just love the look of these cables, especially in this lovely yarn. :)

I finished the little cardigan for my niece-to-be. It's so cute and tiny! I was a bit nervous at first as I don't usually knit for others, but I'm really enjoying this baby knitting. :)

I made a knit tank top! I'm ridiculously happy with it. I wear these all the time and I'm so excited to have found a pattern I'm happy with. Needless to say I've got many more planned. :)
