• New website excitement!

  • New website

    Probably the most excited I have been since moving into my new house, is the launch of my shiny new website!

    It’s been a long time in the making – and I’m thrilled with how it looks.

    Now I can’t wait to get sewing and showing you all my latest makes.

    Anyway, have a nosey round the site and make yourselves comfy 😉

    And watch this very space for more craftiness to come!!


  • Happy New Year!

  • So here we are, with 2016 almost upon us! Crazy times.

    In all honesty, I am happy to see the back of 2015.  Not for bad reasons – mainly because I feel totally out of steam with all of the madness of work, having a big birthday (inc party, obvs), Christmastime and managing to move house! Pheeeeeewwwwey.

    Now I feel as though I can get back to normality a little bit… piece by piece.

    I am very lucky to have my very own sewing room in my new home, which still needs sorting out. But it does mean that I should be up and running with my Janome in no time at all.  Can’t wait!

    This is also the 1 year anniversary of starting The Gingerthread Girl blog.  I’ve absolutely loved blogging my makes this year – and raring to get going on projects for 2016 – many ideas! And I have some very exciting changes coming to the blog very soon too.  I really cannot wait to show everyone! So watch this space.

    Anyway, here are a few snaps to roundup my 2015 which I thought you might like to have a nosey at.

    About me
