My sewing hiatus has come to an end
Its official I have done a few hours of sewing today, which I believe qualifies me officially breaking my sewing hiatus.
I have spent quite a few weekends tidying my sewing room, emptying boxes and trying to find new, more organised homes for my sewing and haberdashery items.
So here are a few snap shots of my room now - nothing fancy but it will work for now - my dream is to have fitted cupboards but I will have to wait a while for that.
So what did I sew? Well just before my wedding last May, my daughter gave birth to a beautiful little girl. I made a start on a quilt for her, but sadly between getting married, moving house, honeymoon, Christmas etc., and not really being able to get into my sewing room, I just hadn't got round to finishing it.
So today I managed to complete all the squares which are now ready to be pieced together, but I want to piece them with black, a colour I have used before, but don't think I have enough, so I may have to purchase some more.
Still Rome wasn't built in a day, and at least I have made a start. Can you believe that what came as 2nd nature to me, today had me really thinking about it. This was simple things like refilling the bobbin, and cleaning the dust from the feed dogs.............. lol has it really been that long?????
I knew where everything was in my old sewing room, and although things are tidier here, I can't just lay my hands on what I want, but hopefully I'll get more familiar with my new surroundings soon.
I hope you are all having fun.
Catch you later.................................
