Magpie Mimi


This is my attempt to document all the things I make and am inspired by. I have a passion for making things as it brings me great joy to see something beautiful and or useful as a finished project from something I've made with my two hands. I love colour and pattern and texture and try and incorporate as much as I can of each into every piece I make. Some things are entirely new, some are more well loved and given a new persona. I love trying new things so this is a mixture of a sewing blog and a crafting blog and sometimes just somewhere for me to go Oooooh! Look at that!

    But it can't be from Dolly Clackett. She gave me an Easter egg!

    1. This wasn't amateur hour, Phil. People died because of your lack of supervision. There were raptors all up in the kitchen, Phil. IN THE GODDAMN KITCHEN.
    2. It's a beautiful, sunny day and we're in an opticians. It doesn't get any better than this.
    3. Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain.
