I’ve actually been super productive this week! But today all my energy has been sapped and I want to crawl under a quilt and stay there. Preferably a nice handmade by Mum quilt, big enough to cocoon around me.

Anyways, “just keep swimming” as Dory would say.

Things that I have achieved this week include :

I set up my dressmakers dummy to my measurements. It made me realize just how bottom heavy I am!

I cut the L and the O for my giant LOVE sign! This thing is going to be monsterous!

These things are massive! The whole thing will sit at about 4 metres long when it’s all set up!

Guy and myself got the corner garden bed in! We are both excited to finally have garden space to get veggies growing again!

My first attempts at foundation paper piecing! I think I’m doing ok! This is a free pattern from Threadbare Creations

I can’t wait to start showing off some of these things as finished pieces! But for now, it’s back to the sewing table!

Thanks for stopping by 🙂
