Summer Days...

 means a little sewing...

 lots of cycling....

visiting beautiful gardens.....

and the beach.....

op shopping.....

and general relaxing!

We are experiencing a bit of heatwave at the moment, 

so motivation to sew is not high! 

When it cools down, hopefully there will be a flimsy 


Happy days!

Two weeks into 2022

 and barely a stitch has been sewn!

I have moved house after spending 18 years in my 

previous 'home'.

During the unpacking, I managed to rip one of my 

favourite "Gorman" dresses....

Not a large hole but front, centre and at knee level.

So I decided on some visible mending....

 a little piece of fabric from my extensive stash was 


 and applied with a running stitch of stranded 

embroidery thread.

I also sewed a denim skirt, challenging myself with a fly 

zip closure....

The colour is not a true representation

YouTube is your friend when the pattern's instructions 

are brief and confusing! 

When I get the buttonhole made and the button sewn 

on, I'll to share another photo.

I have enjoyed knitting in the evenings....

I find it very relaxing! 

This will be a long sleeved version of my Soldotna top 

which I made a couple of years ago.

Now that we are settled into our 'temporary' home,

 where we will be for about five months,

I'm planning my first quilt for 2022....

and my second and third!

Happy sewing!
