About me

Hi, I'm Liz.

I'm a Melbourne (Australia) based sewer. I began sewing November 2012 when my Husband, Tim, bought me a Janome (thanks!). I spend far too much time sewing and reading up on others sewing escapades. I sew as much and as often as possible while still working, eating, showering, socialising etc.

I sew for myself primarily, but I also love to sew for my partner, family, and friends. On this blog I hope to share most of my sewing projects (successful or otherwise...!).

I love to refashion, thrift, cook, eat, shop, read and watch. Name a lazy hobby (e.g. where you buy things, lay down or eat) and I'm there!

I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog. I would love to hear from you.
