Today I managed some sewing. It seems like such a long time between sewing sessions. There are just so many other things to do that when I finally get a minute to myself I just want to collapse on the couch with my knitting or to read a book. I’m reading the most wonderful book at the moment, The Life Giving Home by Sally Clarkson and I’m stuck between stretching it out so I can really enjoy it and also really wanting to just sit and read it cover to cover. It’s just such a lovely read and I promise to do a full review when I’m done.
But today I had a bit of sewing to create a project on my sewing machine for Brother. Fabrics and batting from the stash (always a surprise how many lovely fabrics you’ll find in there) and ribbons from Spotlight. Still not sure taking all 6 little people to Spotlight was a wise move since my big girls have discovered the kids craft section but they were told nothing over $5 and managed to pick something each. Also my tear away stabiliser for machine embroidery was 40% off and such a huge discount. If you machine embroider then you’ll know that the supplies don’t come cheap so I grabbed a whole roll which should keep me going.
Anyway I look forward to sharing this project later in the week and it was a great excuse to cut into some Heather Bailey. One of my first fabric loves.
