A Spotty Clemence

I’m back again with yet another Clemence skirt! This is the make-your-own-pattern skirt from Tilly Walnes’s fantastic Love at First Stitch book.

Scrap-busting, free motion(!) bookmark

Last week saw one of my favourite members of staff at my local children’s centre leave for retirement. She was amazing.
