Twin Needle Obsession!

After using twin needles on jersey, for perfect, flat hems, I cannot stop using them on wovens either.  Why stitch 2 wobbly parallel lines, when you can do it perfectly in one, with a twin needle!!!

Cutting, cutting, sewing?

Just 3 projects on the go this week!!
Project number one has been on my dress stand for 2 weeks, just needing hemming & buttonholes. I've even got the covered buttons ready! 

Project number two - new yoga leggings awaiting a visit to the overlocker!
And finally, the old trusty Vogue top pattern, cut out ready for this weekend's Needlework Fiesta in Brockenhurst. I thought it might be an idea, to model one of our gorgeous Japanese double gauze fabrics, we'll be selling!
