A little while back, I wrote about my unexpected break from vlogging (you can read it here). I wasn’t even sure why I’d taken the break, even as I was writing the blog post. Was it too much work? Did vlogging get in the way of sewing? Was I losing my creativity?
I didn’t let the reason bother me too much; instead, I just got into the business of making stuff. So far this year, I’ve sewn four dresses and knitted quite a few beanies, not to mention my cabled cardigan. I took lots of photos.

A Merry Vlogmas to all!
Thank-you, you may be saying, but what on earth is Vlogmas? Essentially, Vlogmas is a shared act of questionable sanity that occurs every December where YouTubers across the world try to make a video every day until Christmas. Given that I had left my job at the end of November and was vaguely occupied with some freelance work, I decided I had enough time to join in with the fun this year.
I’m glad I did take part because even though it was a lot of work, it was also a lot of fun and I was certainly feeling more festive than I normally do. That’s what happens when you spend a lot of time wearing a sparkly santa hat while drinking tea out of your ridiculous Christmas mug.
What did I get up to Vlogmas? Read on for a link to the entire set of videos for 2017. Continue reading
