Hi there! My name is Marie.

I started this blog from my home in Stokes Croft, Bristol in the hope that documenting my projects would motivate me to actually finish some of them! I've since moved to a different part of the city but being a sentimental soul I've stuck with the name as a little homage to where it began.

So a few little snippets about me...

  • I share my home with my long suffering other half and our two house rabbits, Lilly and Naboo.
  • We're all vegetarian.
  • I was taught to sew as a child by my mother. I then learnt some pattern cutting and draping at college and have been 'throwing things together' ever since. I call it an 'Organic approach'.
  • I have a pretty short attention span so tend to have numerous projects on the go at once.
  • I am rarely very far from a chocolate biscuit and have a penchant for eating them by the packet!
  • I have zero patience with technology and hate having my picture taken... this proves problematic.
  • I (along with my ladies Steph and Jem) work part time at Kirsten's fabulous 'Make & Do' fabric shop, hosting sewing workshops and generally making a huge mess.
  • I love to play the piano and whilst working on my diploma am embarking upon a career in teaching.
