I am sorry that it seems like it has been months since I have written a proper blog post. At the moment I just have lost my ability to put pen to paper, there is nothing currently firing me up, making me want to speak passionately about it. Other than sewing, nothing (other than hubby and my dogs, friends) brings me a great deal of joy. It’s understandable you don’t experience that amount of bereavements in such a short amount of time and escape unscathed. So I am trying not to be too hard on myself and just produce what I can, so that you my loyal readers, some of you who have been around for the last ten years don’t lose faith.
At the moment I have been sewing like a woman possessed. It is the only thing that I can lose myself in 100% is sewing. I usually start with the radio on but at some point just zone out and no longer hear it. I live for sewing at the moment it is all consuming. Even my Emma Bridgewater collecting has started to take a back seat as I am so focused on sewing.
I have made quite a few bits over the last week, unfortunately some of them are gifts for people who may read my blog so I can’t post the photos. I will post what I can though!
Last week I forgot to post this photo of my spring wreath that I made.
I also started my first ever quilt. I am using a kit which is called quilt as you go. So each block is built up individually. Once all the blocks have been made you sash them together and then bind the edges.
Hot water bottle cover, which is a gift for someone I know doesn’t read my blog or do much online!
Quilted mat for sewing machine to sit on
It’s been quite a busy week sewing wise. Today I am having a non sewing day as my hands have swollen up making it quite painful to bend my fingers. A day of rest will hopefully sort it all out.

I’ve been reading your blog for a long time. I have a few things I need to sew (just even mending a quilt, a seam in a comforter and covering the fashionable holes in two pairs of jeans from the back) and I’ve been putting it off because I just hate doing it. But seeing that it’s actually doable and someone enjoys it may one day soon get through. I’m impressed.

Thank you so much for reading my blog post and leaving a comment.
I have found sewing a real place of comfort for me. I know its not for everyone and some people prefer doing other things. Sometimes thinking about stuff can be worse than actually doing the task. We found that with the decorating a few weeks ago.
