Hi, I’m Kirsten. I’m 20-something and I live in beautiful Wellington, New Zealand. This blog began at the beginning of 2014 as a way of challenging myself to be more creative and learn new skills. I set myself a New Years’ challenge to do something crafty every week for a year, from sewing to jewellery making, eventually resulting in 52 fancy new things. The challenge was successfully completed, but I was bitten by the sewing bug big time! I seem to spend all of my time planning things to sew, buying excessive amounts of fabric, and devouring other sewing blogs…so I have plenty of inspiration to keep blogging!

If you’d like to contact me, leave me a comment or email me on fiftytwofancies (at) gmail.com

  1. I like the purpose of your blog. You’re one month ahead of me. I’m doing it because I need to write but will be making things along the way too.
    Crocheting on more than straight lines is easier than you think. I’ve learned to do that in the last two years! Good luck

  2. Hello! We’re featuring some favorite Cascade Duffle Coats this week in conjunction with our Super Online Sewing Match at Sew Mama Sew. (It’s our Round Five Challenge pattern!) We would love to feature your version:


    Would it be OK for me to post one photo, with a link to your site and proper attribution? I can’t seem to find your email address on your site…

    Thank you!
