I've been thinking of making some changes to this little blog for a while and I though it was about time I shared some of my plans with you.

I found one of the hardest parts of starting this blog was coming up with a good name for it.  At the time I went with "A Little of What You Fancy" because I thought that although it would mainly be about sewing (and knitting) that title gave me wide enough scope to talk about anything that took my fancy.  However, it doesn't really tell anyone who doesn't know what the blog is mostly about.  And in reality, I write very little about anything that isn't sewing or knitting related.

With that in mind I've been thinking about alternative names, and realised that the name of my Folksy shop - Stitched Up by Samantha - is also perfect for this blog. 

With that in mind, earlier this year I purchased my own domain name -  - and the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed that I'm now using it.

I will also be changing the blog name to Stitched Up by Samantha, and I plan to make that change next weekend - probably Sunday 8th June.  In the short term I'll have the same blog design, but I'm actually in the process of having the blog redesigned professionally - my Photoshop and design skills only stretch so far! 

I hope you'll stick with me on my blogging journey, I love having you all along for the ride.
