Without These Blogs...Where Would I Be?

So I'm currently sorting out all my university stuff this week so no sewing I'm afraid! Instead I thought I would share with you some of the blogs I read most, and why. Yes, this is the classic blog roll post.

The blog I have read most of has to be MPB. 'Male Pattern Boldness' claims to be the most popular men's sewing blog, and I can see why. Peter Lappin, a New Yorker living in Manhattan has roots in the Mood Sewing Network and I know that personally I joined Pattern Review just because he recommended it in a post.

Baggy Bottom Blues

So in celebration of The Great British Bakeoff this week I thought I'd do a simple tutorial that occurred to me whilst re watching the final of the 2014 last week  - 'now that's a soggy bottom!'

Although I have to say I am very happy with the new way to test out how candied your peel is - I guess it's now okay to start throwing your bakes around the kitchen.

Tales of WOMAD and a Walkthrough of the Wrap Skirt

There's been a lot going on recently. And I mean a lot. There's been holidays and happenings galore. From work to seeing friends it's all got a bit too much recently. I've been sorting out my stuff for university as well as what seems to be a growing fabric stash!

As if I need to tell you TSC has been a little neglected. Last week I was in the middle of a field in Wiltshire getting soaked whilst listening to some of the best music I've heard in a while. I have to say (apart from the rain) WOMAD outdid itself this year.

Some of my highlights had to be the Jenova Collective, an electric swing band from Manchester, The Correspondents, who I have seen a few times but were even better with a band behind them and Red Baraat, a sort of modern rock-Bollywood fusion from New York.
