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 06

Loving //  The Goldilocks weather that is spring..not too hot, not too is just right!
Eating //  A disaster raspberry coconut slice that somehow didn't work out and became a giant sweet pizza!
Drinking //  Rosehip & Ginger's lovely after dinner!
Feeling //  Like Henry's expression above resembles the way I feel towards my current creative block...ugh.
Making //  Well, I just mentioned creative block BUT I guess this blog post counts. And the summer top I made the other day...Maybe it is more of a creative stumble.
Wearing //  Right this second? A Jumper and Shorts. That signifies how confusing Spring weather is, hey?
Thinking //  Hmmmmmmmm....can I please have three magic wishes? My first would be for a clean kitchen.
Dreaming //  My mind is literally blank right now.

Creatively Inspired
1. I think I should learn to knit...because of THESE!
2. These Quilt Designs...sigh.

  1. Thank-you for joining in again! You know Henry doesn't like having his picture taken :-)

  2. Henry looks like he knows a comfy spot when he sees one! I hope your creativity blooms again...along with spring :)

    1. Henry does indeed! Thank you Kate :-)

  3. I think we all lose a little of our creative mojo at times, sometimes it is just best to leave it for a while and do other things. What sort of dog is Henry?

    1. I think you are probably right Julie! Henry is a shih tzu cross :-)

  4. Henry is oh so cute, Megan! I had a quiet chuckle at your wearing of shorts with a jumper. I oft do this myself in early Spring and love it when the days warm enough to take off the jumper and soak up the sun. Meg

    1. Thank you Meg! Yes it's all about the layers in Spring, isn't it? x

  5. Kitchen "disasters" are sometimes how we find fun new favourites. A giant sweet pizza doesn't sound too bad at all! :) Good luck with the creative mojo, and don't be too hard on yourself. Sometimes, a little break is exactly what we all need.

    P.S. I love the photo of Henry. Cutie!

    1. The sweet pizza wasn't so bad but I was hoping for something a bit more slice-ish, though sweets are not my strong point! I will pass your compliments onto Henry! x

  6. Awh, Henry is just the sweetest boy ever! Although my dog gives me the exact same look when I get the camera out - why do they not appreciate how cute they are?? Haha. :)
