Perhaps this photos sums up my activities since my last post. Life has been a bit like wading through treacle for a long time. But hopefully, things are on the up now and even if sun-robbing winter is on its way.
Sewing was a huge mega passion for so long it was really hard when I lost all interest in it. But thank goodness, the love is returning! I haven’t been disciplined enough to take photos yet, but I’ve made a #rosashirtdress from Tilly and the Buttons. I’m really pleased with it. I made it a touch too small up top, but actually it looks nice slightly open with a t-shirt underneath. Trouble is its needs ironing so i don’t wear it as often as I could.
In half term I rustled up a t-shirt dress from a magazine free pattern. I even used the overlocker! It’s lovely, but a touch out of season. I plan to make more of both patterns though.
I also made this advent calendar from John Lewis. My first attempt at anything “crafty” and it even had wadding inside. It made me actually think about making a quilt – and that’s a sewing path I never thought I’d travel down. Quite unusual to have a project like this finished in the same year that it was started, so now I just need to remember to get it out of the cupboard in a couple of weeks time. Goodness, I suppose I better get cracking on a Christmas dress for the littlun.
