About this website

This is my blog about sewing. I write about it here because none of my friends in real life are genuinely into this sort of thing. (Although they are kind enough not to roll their eyes at my enthusiasm.)

It started at the very end of 2010, when I stitched up some animals for a school Christmas market and discovered - much to my surprise - how much joy a little fabric and some thread bring to my otherwise ordinary incredibly romantic life as an expat in Northern Italy.
