Secondly I wanted to share a real find. As you may remember I do love my yoga, and getting a chance to practice at home and finding a class online that you like isn't always that easy, or cheap. But look at this, 30 days of yoga, free, suitable for all levels, fun, not too long. I recommend giving it a go, you may surprise yourself!

Sewing kits, how do you feel about them? I use to be of the mindset that they are for children, and expensive, why with only a little effort I could make my own version at a fraction of the price. But as you may of guessed I have been changing my mind, have less time to source fabrics and designing and lets face it not making the effort I have come round to the idea of a nice sewing kit.
So here are few of my favourites
Felix the fox in my stash awaiting to be made up!
Far from a children's selection I would say. So in this little bunch of sewing kit eye candy holds my next make for the lovely sew tiny project. Diane at Marguerite designs http://margueritedesigns.blogspot.co.uk has thought a fantastic plan to show case some of our slower sewing. You are all welcome to join in too.
oh and any thoughts on sewing kits for yourselves?

And I have to totally agree, I made a batch up and it was all I could do to limit myself to one a day. Although healthy ingredients they are treats.

These are totally adorable tea towel kits, making them into cushions or toys, perfect for a weekend make.The range are by Sarah young are delightfully easy makes that are wonderful prints in there own right. So here is Oswald and keep an eye out for Felix.

Well I have finally complete the jersey laurel, a very popular Colette pattern that has seen so many adaptations. My version has long sleeves with bias binding neck line and sleeves. I opted out of pockets and make quiet a short style tunic. I found the pattern had very generous sizing and I had to take the sides in. This would normally annoy me but I find the beauty of a Colette pattern enables you to make alterations with ease. Being jersey I didn't bother with a zip so an easy make this was. I did enjoy this make, and I am glad I have something to go towards my fall essential sew along, Make yourself cosy! How's everyone else coming along with their autumn sewing, are you like me just great full you have manages to make anything?
