I'm Elle (from Busy Elle Bee), and I'm just popping in to say hi and to introduce myself.  I'm a little late to the party - apologies - but I only discovered this fantastic blog a few days ago, and asked if I could join in. To my joy, the answer was yes!

I love sewing, designing and creating so the challenge to use up my stash is right my street. I have an embarrassingly huge amount of fabric and up cycling projects, which I never got around to completing. My personal challenges are to reduce the stash, create a better wardrobe of clothes and to finish some soft furnishing projects. 

I am looking forward to sharing my creations with you, and am even more excited to see yours. For now, thanks for reading, more to follow in due course.

Best wishes,

Hi Elle! Welcome and jump in with both feet. Stash really takes over, and I have totally enjoyed challenging myself here. How much stash do you have? come on...'fess up! :-)

Hello Mary,
Thanks for your warm welcome.

In answer to your question ... err... can I plead the 5th?

OK, OK, I have about 10m of fabric (that I will admit to, for now).

Hi Elle, sorry I am a little late to say hi here - had to set up a temporary computer so I could blog! Lovely to have you here - happy stash sewing!

(PS some of us have embarrasingly huge stashes...)

Welcome, Elle!

Hello Sarah and Heather, thanks for the lovely welcome :)

I may, if I can find enough courage, post a picture of my stash - if nothing else to shame myself into using it.

Currently working on a footstool cover and 2 skirts. It's a start anyway.

Wishing everyone happy sewing!
