Hello! I’m Alex and I love making, creating and designing.
This site will be a collection of my creative pursuits and experiments (I like the term experiment because an experiment can’t really fail – sometimes you’ll get an unexpected result but it is something you can learn from and might even open the door to something new and exciting…).
I’ve dabbled in various arts and crafts since I was a child and am making a conscious effort to give myself more time for these things that I enjoy. A couple of years ago I brought myself a sewing machine after being inspired by various bloggers and The Great British Sewing Bee. I’m excited by all the possibilities that making your own clothes can bring. In particular being able to make clothes that fit my tall frame and long arms well and having a lot more clothes with pockets! My ultimate sewing goal is to make myself a tailored winter coat.
