Sewing and blogging

Just a little blog post today as it’s been a very good but exhausting. I had a great day out at a blogger’s meet up hosted by Sew Essential. It was so much fun! I started a sweet little embroidery project and had a lovely time chatting with fellow stitcher’s. I will have to rest for a very long time after this hectic week. I wrote my other blog today, and that’s it.


Today’s Word count : 116



Almost there…

Today’s word count is not bad at all. I ended up writing far more on my Today I Made… post than I’ve ever written before.

I did not manage to go through the whole of the printed novel today as I anticipated I would yesterday. however I did get through two chapters. There are lots of new settings, characters and plot points that are now documented and organised!

Tomorrow I will hopefully get through a few more chapters. I’m around a third of the way through and enjoying reading my own writing so that is no bad thing.

Today’s word count: 860 words

Only Cheating a Little

It’s been another revision day. I’m still scribbling through the first part of my novel trying to get all the characters and aspects of the world solid in my head. There’s nothing that annoys me more than in-continuity. So yes, not much actual writing today but I didn’t include Saturdays Today I Made… post in yesterdays word count because i wrote it after the Today I Wrote post. I’m stealing those words for today.


Word count: around 600 words

First Part Printed Out! (also cupcakes)

List of awesome things I did today:

  • Baked delicious lemon cupcakes
  • Made a Fifi Top out of gorgeous swallow print fabric (I’ll show it off in this Sunday’s Today I Made…)
  • Finished the revised draft of the first part of my novel. BOOM!


Very productive good day, I can’t wait to go through this chunk and crack on with the next part.

Today’s word count: 250 words

Word-count of the first part 33,800 words!!!!!

Because want to wear pretty clothes when I write

Today I finished off my gorgeous Jersey tank top!


It’s soft and comfortable, the perfect top to sit in the park on a summers day with a notebook and pen. Unfortunately it is bloody freezing so that will not be the case for some time. if you want to learn more I wrote all about it on my other blog.

Todays writing was the aforementioned post

Word count: around 250


An Ill-fated Attempt to Document My Writing Habits

I have been writing a blog for a little while now called Today I Made…  it’s all about recovering from my various mental  health issues.  Writing my achievements down really helps with my recovery and keeps me grounded in the here and now.

It’s with some trepidation that I begin this new blog in which I will try to post in every day with the writing I have managed to do.

Today’s is easy as I have just written a post for Crafty Sew & So, a lovely Haberdashery in Leicester St. Martins square. If you love patchwork then please do click the picture below to check out the post. 🙂


Todays word count is roughly 400 words 🙂
