Hey there! My name is Megan and I'm the sewing, pattern making girl behind Dolly Henry. This is my blog, where I share my own creative adventures and hope to meet fellow fabric enthusiasts. I also design and sell sewing patterns through my online boutique, alongside a beautiful collection of clothing and dolls. Thank you for stopping by!


Here & Now 12

Joining Sarah from Say! Little Hen for the monthly Here & Now Link Party

Loving // The last cool days of Winter...even though it is Spring

Eating // Spelt Sour Dough Toasted Sandwiches, made using the bread recipe from this book

Drinking // A Hot Cup of Tea as I write this...isn't tea soothing?

Feeling // Rather tired after a busy week

Making // Lots of things! I have a quilt that needs quilting, I'm participating in the Molly and Mama Book Showcase and I am sewing some summer dresses.

Thinking // That one day the summer heat will arrive and I might not be as grateful as I should be...

Dreaming // Of an amazing craft space with a drawer for every last button (I need to Spring Clean..)

This week I have achieved:

- moving my website onto two Etsy stores, one for my patterns and one for my handmade collection.
- a blog post about why Instagram is driving me crazzzzyyyy with it's changes
- I also wrote about Keeping a Creative Journal
- I dyed some yarn, naturally... I need to blog about that!
- The odd stitch here and there on my knitted scarf
- lots more I am sure I've forgotten about :-)

What's been happening in your Here and Now?

    1. Hi Laura! Thank you, they are all happy together :-) Megan x

  5. Your toys look lovely, such charming faces. Yes I will probably moan about the summer heat too, but it's lovely too imagine it ever getting warm enough to do that.
    So much 'pretty' on your post.

    1. Thanks Julie! It is hard to imagine it getting hot! How do we forget every year?

  6. You are so creative, Megan, all your crafting looks so sweet! I adore the creamy, lacy fabric in our first beautiful. Meg:)
