Recognise this? If you're as big a fan of The Great British Sewing Bee as me (unlikely!), you'll know it at a glance; this is the home of the GBSB in Hackney, London, which we visited this weekend! My wonderful husband surprised me with a bank holiday trip to the Tate and a visit to 'Other', the GBSB's very own cafe, for lunch.! We had a wonderful day exploring together; London is always so much fun! And check out the wallpaper below! We couldn't set this up could we?!...

Here it is, here it is! Do take time to visit Other if you're ever nearby- it's a lovely spot. And they do a fine poached egg, I might add...

    Hello and welcome to Duck-Egg Blue! I love to make things and I especially love to make things using a needle and thread. We have a craft room at home, which I spend far too little time in, but things are about to change. With the beginning of my new blog is the beginning of a sewing revival in my life. Sew (!), in a bid to increase my stitching productivity and to encourage others to likewise delight in this or other similar crafts, I hereby declare my Holmes made blog o p e n for public view!
    Here are a few of my ideas, slowly unraveling in my shiny, new, electronic notebook. Enjoy!
