Hiya everyone! I swear I never intend for my posts to be this far apart. I always have the best of intentions then nothing happens. I'm not even going to promise to post more.
But any way, on to more exciting chat. A couple of weeks ago I got to meet up with my fellow Scottish Sewing Bloggers at The Cloth Shop in Edinburgh (which also happens to be our store in Edinburgh, I might have made the suggestion of meeting there, my marketing hat was firmly on!). As always we had a great wee afternoon thanks to Franca's amazing organising and suggestions of Mimi's Bakehouse for tea and cake. And oh my goodness, I think that everytime I go through for work I'll have to go and get cake from there. THAT. GOOD.
L-R: (I suggest you click through to all these lovely ladies' blogs, you won't be disappointed!)
One thing I was mentioning to the girls whilst there was my new work blogging vs personal blogging dilemma. We're working on developing the RK blog which means I'm spending a lot of time researching other sewing blogs, platforms and coming up with new and exciting content. A lot of what I'd like to post in work (tutorial and dress fabric wise) is of similar content to what I'd like to post here and vice versa. I don't want to recycle posts and bore any one but I also don't want to choose one over the other, so please bear with me while I try and work out some kind of balance!
So what did I buy while I was there? I got some supplies to make my NYE dress. We're going on holiday for Christmas/NY this year so I wanted something special. I'm doing floor length black gown using this crepe and some corded lace. I've literally just finished the dress and cannot wait to wear it. It was one of those moments when I tried it on and knew it was exactly what I wanted it to be.
I've got a few other things to show you, so I'm off to schedule posts so it seems like I'm still keeping on top of this blogging thing! What is everyone else planning for some festive sewing?
