Welcome, I’m Ros. This blog documents my sewing adventures. I live with my family in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.

I started sewing in 2010, mainly for my two daughters, and it’s been a work in progress ever since. I’ll give anything a try, and I think I’ll always consider myself a beginner. I’m not sure what my style is, it’s always evolving, but if I had to describe it, I’d say colourful and modern.

I sew on a Brother NV1800Q.  My sewing space is a corner of my dining room, you can see it here.

When I’m not doing the school run, grocery shopping, laundry, or singing Frozen medleys with my 4yo, I also love to cook, read books, try other crafts, read blogs and decorate fun cakes for family and friends. I currently work part time as a medical receptionist at a radiology clinic.

You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and Google +.

  1. Kudos, Lenny Kravitz is not bad for a first gig, it'd pass the RocKwiz test I think. Mine was NKOTB, embarrassing for a long time, but now so bad it's cool again. And yay for permanent Ikea sewing space. Hurrah! Melbourne is better than Sydney. Agreed. Great 'about'!

  2. Hello Ros! I just discovered your blog and I really like the beautiful things you make! I love sewing as well! Thank you for inspiring me more! :)

  3. I love the new about page, I love when people ask me where I got things I've made, Elizabeth's favourite thing is wear her jewellry we've made together and show people her mums blog, depending what I've just posted I'm either happy or horrified 😛
