Settling in

A new home! I've just moved to Utrecht in the Netherlands where my husband is studying for a masters degree. Previously when we lived in Sheffield in the UK I had a whole room for my sewing stuff, but accommodation is a little bit more expensive here so this has been shrunk down to a small desk in our bedroom.

I've taken some tips from Flossie Teacakes on sewing in a bedroom to help adjust to the new set up, and have got fabric and tools hidden around the room. And small though it may be, it sure is nice to sew with so much natural light.


  1. Hi Becca, welcome to The Netherlands! Utrecht is such a good place for a sewist. I really like your sewing spot with a view!

    1. Thanks Marianne! Yes I was pleasantly surprised to discover all the sewing resources in Utrecht, a happy coincidence. Though having the fabric market only 5 minutes from my door is a bit too tempting..!


Oh hi there! Thanks for visiting, feel free to say hello :)
