When life gives you lemons…


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.


Well that’s all for this week.

Until next time…get creative!
