As you can see I had a little trouble deciding on a title this morning.
Well, between needy babies, uncooperative sewing machines, and a yukky head-achey, sore throaty cold that I came down with last night - the universe hasn't exactly been helping me get all my sewing done this week. I decided I was too tired to do much last night, so I focused on cutting out the pieces for a skirt I am making Eleanor. And then I ended up sewing the first strip together. I'm pretty excited about this skirt, it's pretty different from anything else she has in her wardrobe, which either means it will get worn a lot, or not at all. Hmm, jumping ahead much? I'll finish it first, and then see...
This morning, aside from feeling pretty rubbish, I reveled in the summery weather, and did a little bit of gardening before taking the kiddos for a walk. I think this is gonna be a good summer.
We picked some roses while out on our walk, from a lovely wildish bush growing along our road. Just in time to replace the forget-me-nots we picked last time.
My gardening pally, snug as a bug in our most recent (and worth it's weight in gold) investment.
And I mentioned a few days ago that I had some fabric to give away. This little bundle is from the Kate Spain, Honey Honey collection. These fat quarters are surplus to my requirements, so I thought I'd share the love...
If you would like to win them, just leave a comment below and I will pick a winner at some stage. Yeah, I'm being deliberately vague about when. I dunno, enter now and then you're unlikely to miss the window.
