More Summer Sewing

I'm on a roll! Mind you my house is very untidy, the washing basket is overflowing and none of the beds were made this morning - oh well, somethings "gotta" give!!!

I make my daughter a new white "peasant" top every Summer. So cool to wear, washes up beautifully and goes with everything. The shorts are a new project. They have front and back pockets and a mock fly front. They have bands at the bottom of the legs and an elasticised back waist. She's mad about them!! Hoping to list both items on Nilly Design on

Nilly Summer???

All of this cold weather is making me yearn for Summer! Don't get me wrong though, I grew up on a farm with tank water, so I have a fine appreciation of rain. Nonetheless I have delved into my Summer cottons in my "stash" and made up a couple of lovely dresses for my daughter. I am thinking of adding them to my "Nilly" shop. I have some other ideas for children's Summer clothes as's all about having the time..........

On a steep learning curve....

I have much to learn about blogging but figure if I stick to a little talk and lots of imagery I won't bore anyone too much. Now that my scarves are "launched" my mind has started ticking over some ideas for Summer dresses - for my daughter, and if successful, for my shop ( - Nilly Design). Have I mentioned that already????

Nilly Started!

I have skirted around blogging for some time now. I read lots of other people’s blogs and marvel at their creativity. I am not sure that my blog will quite measure up! However, I have just launched my first store on called “Nilly Design” and I am selling scarves made from pure linen and the finest Liberty of London cottons. I am very excited to be started and hope to add lots of other interesting items in the future. See what you think and let me know!
