Me and My Blog

Welcome to Cotton, Cakes and Compost.  I am a 30ish year old woman from Merseyside, England.  I have a lovely man, a son, a job, a dog…  When I get time I love sewing, cooking and gardening.  I have lots of ideas, although things don’t always go to plan.  I have started this blog to share my triumphs, disasters, tips and secrets.

My mum taught me to sew when I was a teenager.  I have a lot to thank her for.  She has forgotten about the purple dress we made together, but I remember it always as one of my first successes.  I have started sewing again after finding Amy Karol‘s book in my favourite place, Salt’s Mill.  I have since comandeered a corner of the living room for my sewing machine and all available cupboards and drawers for my fabric stash.

We only have a small garden, but it’s full of tubs and planters in summer.  This year we have a tub allotment for the first time.  I can’t wait for the first strawberries and tomatoes.

And who doesn’t like cake and a good chat?
