Hello! blog hiatus officially over!

Hello everybody, after a fabulous weekend with some VERY dear sewing buddies and then, yesterday, the first ice cream of the season, I suddenly feel compelled to blog again! 

Felix with buddy Matthew

I'm so sorry it's been so long.  I kind of got out of the habit, and then struggled to get back into it.  And now, I'm very much hoping that I'll pop up on the Readers or in the inbox of some of my followers and they'll have a vague memory of who I am!

Hopefully, you'll be pleased to hear that I haven't stopped sewing..and although the following isn't too exciting or new, here's a few snaps of what's currently "in progress" at the sewing machine..

Cushion commission 1 of 2 for my Aunty Jane (see, I haven't forgotten, Jane!)



And a bag order for local shop - there are bag pieces everywhere and the addition of zip closures has made this a bit of a mammoth task...



and just to show that practice does NOT make perfect in this house, look what I managed to do this evening...somehow get the bag handle completely entwined in my machine whilst top stitching bag outer to lining.


 I couldn't stop halfway without ruining the stitching so I just kept going and got more and more tangled!

Once these are out of the way, I have a pressing engagement with my foody Brit Bee Blocks from last April :) These need to be turned into a giant menu, and I am VERY looking forward to the challenge!



Hopefully back soon!
