  • I have a feeling I'm going to wear this @sewcraftyshop shift dress hack EVERYDAY once it's complete. Been to hot to even look at my machines this week BUT I'm having a very VERY exciting delivery from @janomeuk today. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. There's going to be new machine spam... I apologize in advance ๐Ÿ˜†. Hope you're all having a positive day. My thoughts are still with London + Manchester. Also don't forget to check out account #makersforgrenfell to help support those affected by the fire. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜”โค๏ธ. Big hugs guys xxx

  • Here's a bit of waldo Spam. He's only allowed on the bed right before wash day, but he loves every minute of it. ๐Ÿ˜‚.

  • The awesome @portialawrie has set up a makers page for sewists to sell their stash to support those affected in the London high rise fire. I'm currently sorting my fabrics out to help and it would be awesome if you could do the same! Head over to @makersforgrenfell to find out more. Xxx.

  • The lovely @roodles_runique + @mrs.f_72 both asked me what I was doing yesterday and the answer was fabric shopping in Goldhawk road with the girls from @newcrafthouse, @elisalex, @clairesews, @thumbleninja and @sabrinakilpatrick. I bought some cotton that reminded me of @marillawalker, the striped cotton we all fell in love with, and some super strong power mesh. My trip on the tube was delayed by a 'fire' which I assumed was a small fire like the one in the tube I experienced back in April. I spent the day listening to the others talk about donating without understanding the true extent of the disaster. Only when I got home and read the news did I get the full scale of the awfulness of the situation. Hearing that the residents had pleased with officials and been ignored breaks me.  @portialawrie has expressed a wish for us to come together to help those left with the aftermath and I absolutely support her. Yet another day where I'm left feeling that this countries leaders are  failing its humans, but I know that the humans in the country won't fail to lead. I send hugs to you all this sunny Thursday and I look forward to spending some positive time with @jennibobtaylor later this evening. .
  • My weekends Birmingham fabric trip was definitely more about the social side, but I did purchase this viscose. It reminds me of us. The sewing community. All different but all together. Something that makes me happy everyday. No idea what this will be, but it will be something that makes me smile. .

  • If you're voting Tory today please stop and think why. Is it because you earn over ยฃ80,000 a year and don't want taxes to support benefit wasters? I'm one of those wasters, and the tax payers support has meant I was able to stay in my small flat when I was diagnosed and needed critical care. I'm now off benefit support and paying taxes. Without Employment And Support allowance I'd of been homeless and unmediated. A danger to myself and others. Is it because you don't care if the NHS gets privatized? Without affordable access to my medications (I already pay for them because mental health isn't seen as life threatening) I'll be back to being a danger to myself, unable to work and therefore not paying taxes. Millions like me are being pushed into desperate situations as their benefits are cut or taken away.  Real humans. Not statistics, or the scum the papers tell you I am. Our grandparents fought wars on foreign soil so that fascism didn't reach the shores of Britain. Don't let the papers lie to you about The Conservative being for middle class people 'like you'. They are ruining working and middle class peoples lives and only the extremely rich will benefit from their continued rape of our political system. Fight hate, fight lies, fight fascism and vote for the many. If you think Corbyn is a joke, ask yourself why? Did the Daily Mail tell you this? Did the independent tell you you'll never guess what Jeremy did next? Did the sun remind you that he's scruffy and rides a bike? No party is perfect but don't support one who has major leaders who are against gay rights, human rights and have cut funding to our most needed services in order for you to believe we need 'tighter internet laws' and 'the NHS is failing'. The Conservatives have failed you. Let's stop this together โค๏ธ .
