I've been active on Facebook and to some extent on Instagram as well, but completely forgot about my poor wee blog! I'm blaming Covid even though here in NZ it's not had as much of an impact yet.
I've still been sewing, still working on Gran's chair and still knitting too. I've also been sidetracked by the garden and DIY; things like replacing all the internal door handles and also fixing up the rollers on the wardrobe doors; I still have a heap of them to go! We also got a bunch of large bills, one of which was expected (the replacement fence) and the others weren't. A new dishwasher, a large vet bill and now we've got a toilet to replace and Dh needs a CPAP which insurance doesn't cover at all. We also need a better router but the type we need is of course in the expensive section and our printer died after about 10 years of service. I also ordered some fabric in all that, but it was necessary for sanity. None of it arrives for a wee while as it's all yet to be printed, but it'll be worth it!
I've finished a few items, so here are some photos to prove it; this has all been from late summer through to now.
|Greenstyle tank pattern in For Fabric Sake cotton lycra; the paisley is a custom print.|
|Pattern Emporium dress using a panel print from For Fabric Sake, not 100% happy with the neckline on this one.|
|Over halfway through the second sock for Dh now; this shows the beginning of sock 2.|
