Phew, what a week. Busy every night, away over the weekend, busy every night this week. Then there was counselling yesterday which was really good and really hard, and so has left me in tiny little pieces that I’m still working out how to put back together again. As I keep telling myself, it’s taken a long time to get myself into this state, it’s going to be a long time to get out of it again.
As a result, most of my creating has been on the move, although I have cut out the pieces for a baby kimono:
These are so easy to make, I love them. This one is for a colleague’s new baby, who is a girl, but I liked the blue fabric best. I just hope I can get it constructed before she grows out of it.
This is another in the ‘mystery project’ series. It’s almost ready to go to its new owner, so hopefully I can do a big reveal soon!
But my biggest reveal of all, the most exciting thing to happen to me this week, is this:
If you’re thinking “that looks like a Singer Curvy 8770, brand new, still in box” then you’re dead right! It’s my 30th birthday present from my mum and okay, my birthday isn’t til August, but what’s a few months between friends? I was so excited when it arrived that I spent my coffee break reading the instruction book. Yes, that is reaching new heights of geekiness, but I honestly don’t care, it’s just so cool! I can’t wait to get it home and start playing with it. It has 225 stitches! I didn’t even know 225 stitches existed! It’s going to be an awesome adventure.
Although clearly none of them will as exciting as this 😉 see everyone else’s creative spaces by clicking here
