I'm back and I'm happy.
I have been sewing and sewing (looking after kids in between) and then more sewing.
After thinking I would give it all up (because you cannot make any money doing this!) I have given myself a bit of a kick up the bum. I have had some success selling though a few shops, Folksy and selling to friends and I have decided that if I sew, sell and save I can go back to Canada for a big holiday with my brother next year.
So now I am determined and positive and have a bit more self belief and I'm doing the thing I really love!
