It’s been a while…
It has been a fair few weeks since my last blog post and I feel pretty disappointed in myself. I have gone from doing one or two posts every week since my new blog got up and running to one a month, Oops.
I can’t even say I have been crazy busy because what I’ve actually been doing is becoming seriously addicted to my kindle. I have turned into some kind of major bookworm and have ploughed my way through 11 books in the last 4 weeks. I am a little unhappy to tell you I am going cold turkey for a while….Let the blogging commence!
So as well as reading, looking after Boo, reading, working, reading and housework I have been doing little bits of sewing.
I have made a couple of kindle pockets that I finally got the hang of after my failed attempts at the beginning of the year. I made one as a birthday gift and made a custom green one from a lovely young lady from Instagram (I love that app.)
I have come up with a little range of items I am going to made in the coming months but for obvious reasons I can’t delve into that too much just yet. All will be revealed ASAP.
I have started my Christmas crafts, I know that probably sounds slightly crazy but it was such a busy time for me last year that I want to be fully prepared and I have a few big items I would like to make. I think I am going to do a few items the same as last year but lots of new stuff.
I have made a couple of little items for our living room. I stitched a map of Zante and a heart over where Tsilivi would be (that’s where me and J got married.) I framed it in a little old frame I found in a charity shop and it now sits on our window sill.
I’ve also painted a gold chevron pattern onto a yellowy coloured fabric, I’ve secured it into an embroidery hoop and I’m debating whether to leave it as it is or stitch something onto it. Mmm what do you think?
Well I feel I am trying to cram too much into this blog post so I will leave it there.
