This is me modelling my newly made Staple Dress which will also be coming to retreat!
Some of you are going know me quite well through various forms of social media, real life and my online fabric shop Simply Solids. I reckon there are also going to be a bunch of folks who have no idea who the hell I am, so here goes!
I'm a mum of 3 kids, Holly, Max & Hunter! Hunter came to retreat with me last year as he was just a few weeks old. This time there will be no kids - Woop!!

I bough Simply Solids last September from my lovely real life friend Mandy as she had decided to get a proper job!! I planned on keeping it small and low key, more of a hobby really as I was also a neo-natal nurse. Things haven't quite panned out that way and the shop is going from strength to strength so I quit my nursing job, which to be honest is still scaring me and I'm now broke to boot!
I started sewing back in 2009 and although I don't get as much time to sew as I would really like, I still manage to squeeze in bits here and there. I love making quilts and sewing smaller projects like pouches & cushions.

I'm especially looking forward to just hanging out and selfish as it sounds, having some me time away from the responsibilities of 3 children!!
I cannot wait to chat, laugh, learn some new techniques, sew & of course have a beer or three, meet new sewers, put faces to twitter & blog names and spend some much needed down time with some of my real life best friends.
