Hey guys!

I’ve been keeping this a secret, but it’s just gone live, so I better let you know that I’ve become a member of the Minerva Crafts blogger network!! I was so honoured to be accepted, especially as my little blog is only just approaching its first birthday (I’m also going to try and sort out a giveaway to celebrate that too!). I can’t believe it’s a year since I started sewing – and also a year since I have bought any brand new clothes (a couple of charity shop dalliances, but that’s recycling, lol).

Now the pressure begins, eh? 

I spent hours scouring the website, trying to pair fabric with patterns, so I hope you like the results!
Thankfully I have just finished my first make for the network (although I have yet to try it on since I finished – I better get on that tonight!). My first post goes live on the 7th of November. I’m scheduled for the first Thursday of every month (thought you might want to put it in your calendar :)

 Also, the network itself will be compatible with all of our RSS feeds soon, so the posts can be delivered straight to our Readers. That will make me especially happy. And because there are new faces joining, there will also be more posts to read. It's a jam packed schedule!

More posts = More inspiration!!

I don’t know about you, but having more posts to read excites me! I’m always checking to see if another post has gone up. And, as ever, the items we choose for our makes will be available for you guys to buy as a kit if you so wish :) I will of course let you know how I got on with my kit (and my make) in the post so you have a
heads up. The kits look so lovely all packaged up, with everything you will need in one pack. 
And of course Minerva offer free delivery on purchases over £20 – which is nothing in my book, sure I spent £55 on fabric on a whim last night (ahem, thanks Kathryn).

You can head to the Network to watch as more faces pop up!

Wish me luck!!

  3. Hi Jo! Lovely to hear from you, have serious knitting envy now I've looked through your makes! I don't have room for an overlocker either - we've been eating dinner on the couch for a while!
