Hi, I'm Jenny! Thanks so much for visiting my little corner of the blogosphere! Me and my lovely family (my husband, Andrew and three  now FOUR (!) kids) live in the sunny Hawkes Bay of New Zealand. The land known for Kiwis, Lord of the Rings and sheep - but to be honest, it's a lot more than that!


I got into sewing after my son Noah was born, I was on maternity leave and just needed another outlet to pour some energy into! And my passion for sewing (and the size of my family) has grown from there!

I started this blog in 2011 and for reasons that I can't quite remember... I have memories of when I first started sewing wanting to show my husband every. single. project that I made! Although he was supportive, when I started this blog I loved discovering the online sewing community, sewing challenges such as Kid's Clothes Week and the big wide world of PDF patterns! I really loved having interactions with other sewers around the world, and my poor husband didn't have to hear about every new sewing technique I learned in such great detail!

Do you sew, have your own blog or are thinking about taking up the hobby? I'd love to hear from you! Please feel to comment or drop me an email at: noahandisy(at)gmail (dot)com

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy reading and following along with my sewing projects.
