I got so carried away writing a nonsensical story a couple of weeks ago that I didn’t provide any explanations on how to make my Handmade Passport Holders. I understand it’s a very straightforward process for some of you who’ve sewn far more challenging projects but I’ll bear in mind a friend of mine who’s […]Continue Reading... 8 Comments.
How good was Makegood festival 2014 last Saturday? Well, very good indeed! It was a three-day festival of culture, creativity and entrepreneurship held in Central London which showcased the work of over 200 brand new creative businesses.

I’m playing the craftsmanship card this week with a new set of oyster card holders, courtesy of an order I received a little while ago. I followed the same online tutorial as last time although I would strongly advise to attach a thick piece of fusible interfacing onto the lining. This will help the […]Continue Reading... 8 Comments.
In the reception lounge designed in the eighteenth century style to provide an atmosphere of quiet grace, John Steed listened with undisguised amusement to appalling theories of homicide aired across the salmon sandwiches and bottles of Moët & Chandon.

The woman in question had expressive blue eyes and sculpted high cheekbones that preserve beauty indefinitely. Sadly for John, her attention was turned towards Emma. “I hope you will forgive me interrupting your conversation. My name is Katherine Broster and I’m trying to reach Miss Ann Miller.
