About

My name’s Helen, I’m a 26 year old mother of 3 with a slight sewing/baking obsession. This all started when I was pregnant with my first child and was suddenly forced to think of someone else except me, I taught myself to cook- thanks to a nigella book and decided I would make something for my baby, I bought a book on basic quilting, borrowed an ancient hand operated singer from my mum and made it and 7 years later  my sewing skills have improved enormousley as have my cooking skills – much to my husbands relief, although he has gained two stone since we met! So here is my blog, the ups and downs of home sewing with the occasional recipe thrown in, I also sell pieces through etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/albamakes I hope you enjoy my blog!
