A new Blogging Venture


I'm really excited to report that I have a new blogging venture on the the go, for the website of the Herald Scotland newspaper. My first post went online today and you can read it here:


I was delighted to be asked to contribute blog content to the site, and will be writing a new piece every fortnight. What I write for the Herald will be different to what appears here, so I don't expect that it will take ideas away from my own blog. I'll post the links here so you can hop over and have a look if it sounds of interest to you. 

Please do have a look, as it's a new thing for their fashion pages to have a DIY element, so the more people who look at it, the more the Herald will see that people are interested in sewing. Plus it'll make me look good :-)

I decided to start with the basics for my first post as you can see, but am planning some more 'How To'-type posts in the future.

  17. I love your blog and I will be checking out your new blog too. Dumb question: what is the reason for using the cocktail stick. I might be a bit ... I have never sewn a button on like that and I'm intrigued and interested.

    1. Hi Susan

      It just makes it easier to create an extra loop of thread so you can make a shank for the button, or reinforce the button on the reverse of the fabric.
