Thankyou so much for all the lovely get-well messages you sent me after my last post
. I'm feeling much more like myself again :)
I've been busy (not tidying and cleaning like I should be) I've been finishing things and making new things too :)
Want to see?
I finished my Drunkard's Path mini quilt (totally inspired by this beauty made by Michelle I like Orange Too
and it's now proudly hanging in the living room. I'm not sure how impressed my husband is with the new wall art, he hasn't mentioned it at all since it appeared on the wall, but the kids like it, and it makes me happy every time I walk into the room :)
Scrap Vomit is almost finished. It hasn't got the binding on yet, I've just zig-zagged round the edges.
It's the kids' new favourite quilt, and Murphy seems to like it too! I didn't use wadding, just backed it with an old flannel sheet that I dyed kind of wine coloured.
And I'm very proud of this make....
I made myself a Tova
! The pattern is now available for download
and after months of wishing I had more time to start making myself clothes again, I decided to just do it.
I followed a lot of the tips that Kerry
gave during her Tova Sew Along
and it came together pretty quickly (about 4 or 5 hours total, including cutting out and taping the pattern together).
It's a bit crumpled in the photos because I have been wearing it all day, but I absolutely LOVE it! I love the little gathered details and it's just so comfy! I used quilting weight cotton (Make Life by Sweetwater for Moda) and lengthened the sleeves so it's warmer for winter.
I'm going to make a Portfolio dress
next! And just in case anybody fancies a bit of dress making, This site
is doing simplicity patterns for $2.99 just now - I just ordered the Lisette Diplomat Dress pattern and the Lisette Souvenir Top :)
Hope you're all having a good week!
