Life certainly has been giving Hubble & I lemons lately and as much as you try to make lemonade out of them, sometimes you just have to face the fact that they are lemons and it sucks!
Just when you think things are back on track after the last curveball, you get thrown another one and it can be very stressful. Thank God for my rescue remedy and stitching. My sewing room has become my sanctuary, my little piece of what’s right in this world. So as I try to keep my chin up and carry on I have created the following items over the last few weeks.
I finished block six of the Homespun BOM and it is gorgeous!
I’ve also completed block five up to the hand sewing which I haven’t started yet because there’s a lot of it and it’s rather overwhelming.
I’ve also been doing some stitching. The little bee at the top of the post has been put into a hexi frame and I wear as a necklace. I was really pleased with how he turned out. I’m also making a brooch, so hopefully that will turn out as good.
I have also been designing a lap rug with some wool I got from a local yarn store.
It’s a very portable project and with my new crochet hook it is crocheting up really fast. It’s a Kollage Square Hook and it’s great for relieving hand fatigue.
Hubble and I after a particularly stressful week, decided to go hiking in our local area. Being out in nature was just what my soul needed and I felt rejuvenated (at least for a little while). If it ever stops raining, we’re hoping to explore other parts of our suburb.
Just a quick post today. Finally finished my cross stich. It’s very cute. I have two more designs to do and then I will get them professionally framed in one big wooden frame to hang in my sewing room or office.
Well Hubble’s out & bringing home fish & chips for dinner so I have an hour or so to start on my next Homespun BOM block.
It has been great to catch up on some of my other projects, in particular the Homespun BOM “The Butterfly Patch”. I finished block 4 and it is so pretty. These Tilda fabrics are gorgeous and I love working with them. I can’t wait for their next range to come out in September. Continue reading “Catching up & taking a breather…”→
I can’t believe that it’s been over a month and a half since I last wrote a post. I have been busy finishing the charity quilt and I’m sooo happy to say that it’s done! Continue reading “Charity quilt done!”→
Three weeks has flown since I last posted and I have been soooo busy. Mostly finishing off presents, which I can’t show you until I have given them to the recipient. Continue reading “Busy, busy, busy bee!”→
Another week and already we are nearly halfway through April. This year is going so fast! The 100 Day Project has encouraged me to do a little bit of stitching everyday and it has paid dividends. Continue reading “Getting ready for winter.”→
I hope everyone has had a great Easter and the Easter Bunny brought you lots of chocolate! In Australia we have a four day holiday for Easter. Here in Perth the weather has been absolutely beautiful! I love this time of year. Cooler mornings and evenings and warm days. It makes you glad to be alive when you experience weather like this. Continue reading “Relaxed, refreshed & rejuvenated!”→
