Happy Sunday, everyone!
I delightfully gave the curtains back to my parents this morning, they were finished with time to spare and to a standard I was really happy with! I spent more time on them than I have on any other sewing project, but it was worth it, and who knows, maybe it’ll mean I take my time more on the personal projects I have planned. The curtains are being dropped off at my nan’s this afternoon, so I’m sure I’ll have a message of approval before the night is over… And maybe even a photo, which I will update this post with!
The curtains meant I had to put all of my personal projects on hold, but now they’re finished I can start moving forwards with them! I plan to start drafting my own patterns soon, but I thought I’d start off with a couple of free ones to familiarise myself with a few bits and bobs – a couple of things for me and one for my little niece. Simple but exciting enough to get me into a sewing groove!
I also have a couple of refashions I’d like to do. Recently I’ve sorted through my wardrobe at least once every 6months. This includes throwing out the holey and well-loved, well-worn items and donating anything I’ve kept for too long, on the basis that I might wear it one day. There’s a few things that I’ve kept that I like but feel the fit could be slightly different – these are the things I want to fix so that they can become a regular part of my wardrobe rotation.
This means there will be lots to talk about, and I have a few non-sewing posts planned too – I’m gona keep mixing it up until I find a good groove for the blog.
I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend so far, and you enjoy the next few hours before Monday morning comes around!
