Busy Sewing Bee

It’s been a while again. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do at the moment! I’m not a big fan of Christmas, and I really hate going in shops that sells Christmas gifts and have trees up early. But I do think that when … More Busy Sewing Bee
