Blog Hop

Thank you to Charlene at and Rachael at for my nominations for the Blog Hop!  What does it involve? Answer a couple of questions and off you go!

Why do I write?

I started blogging (with great encouragement from the #sewcialists on Twitter!) to mostly share my disasters in the hope of finding solutions.  However I'd say my blog has developed to show the best of  my pride and joy when things go right now!
I LOVE clothes and sadly don't have the time to blog as much as I'd like but I do really enjoy reading others blogs for inspiration.  So many inspiring sewers out there!

What am I working on?

At the moment Papercut Patterns Coppelia.  I'm most definitely an Indie pattern designer kinda gal.
 Those boring photos on the packets of the mainstream patterns do absolutely nothing for me (you could say I lack imagination!).  I also prefer an up-to-date high street kinda look.  I've also been hard at work on Closet Case Patterns Nettie over the summer - blog to follow and I've just bought the Named Clothing pattern Nascha skirt, can't wait to get started!

How does if differ from others of it's genre?

I'm not here to be a professional blogger, simply to share.  Easy!

How does my writing process work?

Hmm, as and when I have the time and also getting hold of a photographer.  Quite difficult to take back shots by oneself! I'm a sporadic blogger!  I also gain lots of knowledge and inspiration from Twitter and Instagram, you can find me @notchesnnotions and sewingsarah01 Instagram.

Now I'd like to nominate Stephanie at because she's a new mum and still manages to sew none stop! Super mum!
