OWOP 2016

I have enjoyed taking part in the One Week One Pattern for the third time and this year it has been hosted by the lovely Hannah from I am Cindrellis blog.

If you have not heard about this challenge it gives sewists the opportunity to explore the same pattern many different ways / or give you the chance to wear some of your tried and tested (TNT) patterns for the duration of a week.

I pretty much knew I would be using my many beloved Grainline Scout tees as I have now got about eight in fairly decent rotation in my wardrobe.

Here are some photos of my Grainline Scout tee's out in the wild and then by outfit!


Day One
Day Two
Day Three
Day Four
Day Five
Day Six
Day Seven
Conclusions. I still love the Grainline Scout tee and I can see more versions in the future! The comfiest version is the knit followed by the viscose / silk ones.

Did you take part in OWOP? What were your findings?

Life Drawing at Pearl & Groove

My third visit to Notting Hill's Pearl and Groove for a life drawing class did not disappoint. A very warm and humid day turned into an evener warmer evening broken by a huge thunderstorm mid-class.


Bella Franks the artist who runs the class under the heading Bits and Bobs was as sweet and organised as usual and the model was lovely too!
Here are my charcoal studies from the evening as well as some photos of the delicious cakes we got to sample.
