Truth is, I'm a pretty private person. Here on the blog, you'll find sewing projects, and the occasional hint at what else I do, but mostly it's a place for me to document what I've been making. Did it work well? Did it fit? Do I like it? Would I recommend you do it too?
The blog title does give a bit away in that, apart from sewing, I'm a bicycle nut. I hardly ever hit the singletrack anymore, but I still love my mountain bikes, and my road bikes, and my commuter, and my single speed, my cargo bike, my front porch bike....
My bikes: 2001 De Rosa Merak (road), 2008 Scott Addict SL (road), 2008 Scott Scale 10 (mtb), 2005 Seven Sola Ti (mtb), 1981 Spokesman single speed, 2010 cargocycles cargo bike,
*Oct 2016 edit: Some f*#k'er stole the Scott Sub10, so after a brief period of mourning it's been replaced by a Breezer Beltway 8 - Sweet!
Who else is on the team? My wonderful husband is referred to as Flipper. It's a joke purely for the blog and it's quite complimentary really: "they call him Flipper, Flipper, Flipper, faster than Lightning..." And he is faster than me, and always has been. Then there are the main recipients of what I sew; my two gorgeous, infuriating and delightful kids.
Mostly I'm just loving sewing things. I started out making clothes for my kids. I haven't purchased anything for them except socks and underpants for quite a while now. I'm also venturing into sewing for myself.
The machines: 2007 Janome Sewist 521, 2013 Bernina 700D overlocker, 2014 Toyota ECO26B (lucky draw prize and back up basic sewing machine)
Thanks for visiting. I try to follow up all comments with an emailed reply, and I'm always clicking on people's links and appreciating all the awesome sewing that's out there.
