Ngozi Sews, how green is my daughter?

You may have seen the odd photo of my daughter, and more likely her small people, my two youngest G-babies. Today I thought I’d let Nina introduce herself and her working world.

Hi! I’m Nina, the brains and brawn behind Ngozi Sews. I’m 38 (for a teeny bit longer) and live in my lovely home in a village in Hampshire with my partner Steve and our two young girls.
I’m Devon born and bred, which you’ll discover after a cider or two, when my accent comes out to play!
I started sewing reusables over three years ago. Ngozi Sews was born out of a desire to save the world, whilst staying at home with my babies for as long as possible.
I love colour, comfort, chocolate and Cherry Pepsi Max. I hate selfies and peanuts.

Here are some of the things I make.
Superscrubby Dishcloths and Unsponges are a perfect way to remove non-recyclable plastics from your kitchen and you can now mix and match the different products!

Every disposable sanitary pad ever made still exists in some form, and will continue to do so for hundreds of years.
How many have you used in your lifetime?
Make reusable your thing, and consider cloth menstrual pads for your cycle.

Thanks to my lovely customers for supporting me and for helping to save the world!

So that’s my lovely daughter, changing the world one pad at a time!

A Good Match

This week, share a photo of things that complement each other.

This is Ben Huberman’s challenge at the Daily Post. Do you think my daughter and I have a matching style in this photo? If so does that mean I wear clothes that are too young for someone of my age? or does Nina dress like an old fogey?

I don’t think either applies, because pretty much anything goes these days. I wore leggings in the 80’s and I do now and I’ve never been very interested in fashion.

Black and White Sunday: Portrait

Paula hopes not to give us a headache with this weeks black and white challenge. I did briefly think ‘oh no’, I can’t do portraits, and most people don’t want their photograph taken -me included! But then I remembered these,taken a few years ago, of my niece at fourteen, a lovely young girl on the cusp of womanhood.

She’s all grown up now and will be heading to uni soon, the begining of a very bright future.
If you’d like to join the challenge pop over to Paula’s place, you’ll get a warm welcome.

Dinosaurs and sand between your toes

If you’re three years old and the beaches near home are grotty shingle, when you feel sand between your toes for the first time, it can be quite overwhelming, you have to pause and take it all in.

But when you’re one and a half, it’s still a bit mesmerising, but if daddy’s there to throw you up to the sky,

then everything is really good fun!

Black and White Sunday, Favourite

Paula at Lost in Translation says, ‘This week I want you to post a photo of your “favourite”. Be it a place, a thing, a person, a pastime or your holiday. Your favourite anything. Maybe the favourite shot you have taken and still haven’t published. The only requirement for this “favourite” is to make it black and white.’

This is Michael, my favourite uncle and I saw him recently for the first time in ages.
