Hello and Happy New Year! I know that I am a bit late but it has been a busy start for me for 2022 and I haven't had much time in my sewing room so far! I am hoping that I will put that right over the coming weeks and months!
I was away for three weeks in January which meant that I wasn't able to get into my sewing room at all. This was a great shame as my husband had treated me to a new sewing table for Christmas which allows my sewing machine bed to be level with the table and I have been waiting very patiently (not!) to try it out as I think it will make a big difference when free motion quilting.
I did take some hand sewing projects with me while I was away. The first was a cute little kit by Corrine Lapierre which my daughter bought me for Christmas and which was the perfect size to get stitched while I was away. It was a cute little Highland Cow and I really enjoyed stitching it!
I also took with me another kit which I started last year designed by Beaks and Bobbins called Sea Hollies and I managed to add a little bit more stitching to it.
It's a very pretty kit and I am pleased with how it looks so far.
Since I have been back (apart from all the washing and ironing I had to catch up with) I have also had a busy week as there were birthday celebrations, a dental appointment, a hair appointment, a medical appointment and a visit with the dogs to the groomer to fit in BUT, I was determined to get into my sewing room to start a new project.
Earlier in the week I saw a pretty Spring table runner designed by a Norwegian designer called AnnaAKa on the internet and it inspired me to stop dithering and make a version of my own.
There is still work to be done on it but, I am really pleased with how it is looking so far.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I am going back to my sewing room now! 😊 xx
