Hello! Thought I’d let you know that I’m still alive. It’s a little inexcusable that I haven’t posted for about two months but I can assure you I have been very busy, mostly with work. I’ve also been doing a fair amount of sewing but this has been for Christmas presents so have been unable to blog about them (for now). I have also jumped on the sequin bandwagon and have finished a Simple Sews Sophia top but taking blog worthy photos of matt black sequins in December has been beyond me. I will make a concerted effort over the weekend!
A couple of weeks ago I went to the Knit and Stitch show in Harrogate and managed to spend a little (ahem) money on lots of pretty things:
Plenty of Christmassy fat quarters – I’m so easily seduced by these but I don’t always have a plan for them. I hope to spend some time with Bethan and make some Christmas decorations but not sure what yet. I also got lots of knit fabric so I can use my new overlocker. The beautiful teal fabric in the centre is stretch lace and was a bit of a splurge. I was thinking of making the lace pencil skirt that is in the latest GBSB book.
The Russian doll panel on the end is a Christmas present for Bethan. She can make about 4 stuffed dolls with this (hopefully she won’t read this!).
The bulk of my #stitchingsanta money went on one of these items too but I won’t tell you what. I’m very relieved that my #stitchingsanta parcel is put together and ready for posting. I hope it goes down well! Here is a sneak peek – hopefully you can’t tell what they are!
